About Us

About us - The Garage Door Centre

Established in 1986, The Garage Door Centre now celebrates over 35 years of continued business, with our products and services more advanced than ever, supplying and installing quality garage doors, entrance doors and associated products throughout the UK. We constantly review and test products for use in the UK and ensure they comply with all relevant standards and have the very longest warranties backed by the manufacturer when relevant.

Our knowledge and experience are grounded within the foundations of this family-run business. Our team is experienced with dealing with both domestic and commercial applications, so whether you're looking to simply replace your home's garage door, or for a product involved in a more elaborate project, we will find a solution.

We attribute much of our success to supplying only the highest quality door and operator products available, ensuring the best guarantees and continuous trouble-free, safe operation for many years.

Many of the garage doors we supplied 35 years ago are still working and going strong today!

Since 1986 the company has enjoyed continuous expansion and has a centrally located showroom displaying the very latest working and static garage doors with a dedicated installation, spares and distribution warehouse for UK distribution.

Installations are controlled from our dedicated unit based in Northamptonshire, where the engineers receive specialist training to ensure the optimum fit is always attained. We can also help trade customers with training for surveying and installation when required as well.

Bespoke Garage Door Specialists

With garage door systems constantly improving, Managing Director Nathan Dove believes people should consider going further than just replacing old doors with exactly the same style.

He states:

"As garage doors have become more specialised, people need a specialist company like us that really understands the technical elements of garage doors, that can appreciate customer's requirements and advise them accordingly. It is also vital that the chosen doors are fitted in a professional manner. With such an important purchase that will last for perhaps 20 years and more, many customers wish to see more than just a brochure. As well as inviting customers to visit our showrooms, we will conduct a survey of their garage to ensure that the door selected will fit the opening and be appropriate for their needs.

It is surprising how often we have had to change doors for people who have bought from a non-specialised company, only to find that the opening is no longer wide enough or high enough to accommodate their car. And of course, safety is a major factor, especially where electrical operators are concerned. Whether the main criterion be maximising drive through dimensions, complying with planning issues or enlarging internal space, The Garage Door Centre will be able to provide guidance and recommend suitable options."
