The installation was excellent, the installer has installed a battery backup to the left hand side of the door. The new door opener is very fast and quiet, we are very happy.

This is the second time I have had Andrew and Chris from Elite Roller Doors out to my place. Great service and advice. Very professional and friendly both times. Cannot fault. We’re really happy with the product. Our old doors were so squeaky, but the doors go up and down so much quicker and close perfectly now!

Filip’s Garage Doors were highly professional, prompt, and confident both representing the product, then installing and training in its use. The door is so much quieter now and the doors go up and down very fast. Highly pleased and will recommend the installer and the Merlin product.

The guys from Jim’s Garage Doors were fantastic from quoting to install. We have an old heritage building, but they installed our new opener with confidence and great customer service. The new opener is much quieter and the door runs so much smoother.

No improvement required; the installer from Easy Glide Garage Doors was polite, punctual and conscientious. We’ve never had a garage door opener before, and we’re very happy. It’s very convenient, especially with a newborn. I would highly recommend the installer’s services and Merlin to a friend based on this experience.

The service provided by Sid’s Garage Doors was exceptional – reliable and a pleasing experience. No improvement necessary – or I think possible. The doors now run wonderfully, I am very happy with my new garage door openers.

Replaced our old motor with this one and it’s working wonderfully. The installation by Steel Line Garage Doors occurred within a few hours and the service was great.
