Garage Door Complaints & Tips
Garage Door Advice

GARAGE DOOR COMPLAINTS was started in July 2014 by Joseph Lucey owner of Best garage Door Company of over 37 years. His father now retired after 53 years in the garage door and gate industry owned Universal garage door in Long Beach, Ca.

My family believes in honestly and integrity in any retail, wholesale and manufacturing business and it's what you the home owner should expect as well. Below is a list on manufactures and their address spend the time to write a letter of complaint and mail it off. Making your comments known on our web site give a show of support and information for others to do the same. There are a few examples of letters you can cut and paste and add your own view. is a well needed site within our industry that will force the improved integrity within the garage door industry. We want to see quality of products and services to home owners that are being cheated and ripped off weekly by garage door manufacturers, companies and their employees. I encourage the public to demand high values or ethics out of the garage door companies that serve you.

We need to put a stop to the decline in the garage door industry, thats been going on for a long time now with little help and direction from the manufactures or wholesalers and the garage door associations. Dishonorable garage door companies continue to get supplied with new parts and new machines to continue to selfishly cheat and rip off good hard working people.

With this web site you the consumers can now stand up and report these companies with your own words in a honest evaluation as to how you got cheated or ripped off. Let others know about the scams in your complaint to help prevent other home owners from getting cheated and ripped off. Maybe within time the manufactures, wholesalers and the garage door associations will listen and will participate in running the bad guys out of the industry.

I will be adding an area here for manufactures because it seems they to have been adding to this problem. Disappointing consumers with low quality garage door openers and parts through the home building stores. It seems people have to jump through hoops to get fast phone service, proper advice, and warranty parts mail fast from the manufactures.

These same manufactures have policy's in place that prevent us garage door companies from handling all your warranty service or part exchange so you could get faster service. The professional garage door openers we buy are with the same parts as the home building store unites but the factory won't let us handle the warranty on these unites.

That's not fair to you or to us within the garage door industry.

I believe for one, that if your need for fast service is denied. Then it forces you to go out and buy another garage door opener unite. All I can say is GREED

The kicker is if genie over the phone gives you bad service you're more likely to go out and buy a Chamberlin Liftmaster garage door opener. If the Chamberlin Liftmaster company gives you bad service then you might buy a Genie. Most home building stores only offer these two garage door openers to buy. Sears sells the craftsman garage door openers made by Chamberlin Liftmaster and they put sears craftsman name on the machine. Its a nice set up they have created. YA? FIGHT BACK LET YOUR RIENDS KNOW ABOUT THIS WEB SITE IF THEY HAVE A PROBLEM.

Mr. Squarepaints 6/16/2024

I purchased your product with believing you have a produce of quality and longevity. Reading your advertisements and hearing radio commercial indicated to me that you took pride it a product you manufacture.

The product I purchased 10 months ago has been faulty. I have been calling your customer service department as this garage door opener is still covered by your warranty. Trying to receive help from your company has been less then professional. I wish to have someone from your company respond by letter so I may resolve this problem or please send me back a full refund of my purchase so I may be able to recoup my losses of a faulty garage door opener.

Please respond ASAP with a name and phone number of someone that can help move this issue forward.

Thank You
