The product is fantastic, it’s so fast and whisper quiet. Our installer was outstanding and the process was absolutely seamless. We will highly recommend Coffs Harbour Door Centre to anyone.

I have never had an electric roller door so this is a very new experience for me and a safer one as well. The door opener was installed by ASI Garage Doors and is working wonderfully, it’s brilliant!

GT Garage Door Motors installed two replacement roller door motors. Both are operating very well and the service provided was first class. Very happy with my new Merlin garage door openers.

The silentdrive is working perfectly, far superior to my old door opener. Installed by Rory from Brisbane Automatic Garage Door Openers, who provided top class and prompt service.

Had Darling Downs Garage Doors and Gate install a couple on our existing garage rolling doors. They knew what they were doing and did a great job also fixing our old noisy/jerky doors at the same time. Fantastic products & service
