We have been very impressed with the professional and friendly way you have dealt with our order. Thank you to Graham and the fitting team whose attitude and skill made the whole episode a total pleasure. We will be recommending your business to our friends. Many thanks
The doors look absolutely brilliant, your fitting team represented your business very well, arrived at the expected time, working very hard to complete both doors in one day and cleaned up after themselves. Really pleased with the doors and will definitely recommend you in the future.
Hello Graham, just wanted to say thanks to you and the team for a job well done. The door looks great. The installation crew have done a great job and were a credit to your company. As you are aware our building project has been ongoing for over 6 months and we have had a number of contractors involved, your guys were right up there with the best.
Dear Graham, I felt I had to write to you to thank you for an excellent job installing an electric garage door at my father's house so that he could store his mobility scooter and access it easily being quite frail at 96 years old. I gave you quite a task to organise the work while I was at my Father's house with only 3 weeks' notice. You rang me promptly and discussed the job while looking at my Father's garage door on Google "street view" which impressed me and then you arranged for your men to assess the job within a couple of days and the installation went ahead while I was there. Your men were courteous and very experienced and removed the old garage door leaving no mess at all. Even when an extra bit needed ordering ( a safety exterior release) you managed to get this within a few days and install it before I left. I can't thank you enough for the totally professional approach of you and your team. It was a pleasure to do business with you and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your firm for installation of electric garage doors. Best Wishes Dr J Scudamore
Just a quick e-mail her for Graham Kirk the MD. I moved into a new home recently and had some bother with a Raynor up & over garage door. I did find that MGD were installers & suppliers and hoped you could help. So I called you and Kevin Gilbert was the guy who handled my problem in a manner that is rarely found these days. He was exceptionally polite and extremely helpful and after an exchange of telephone calls and e-mails Kevin helped diagnose & resolve the issue. The aftersales skills demonstrated yesterday by Kevin and his knowledge of the product were a credit to your company. I work in an engineering sector too and wish we had a few Kevin's in my company. Thank you all so much and now I know where to turn to should I have problems in the future.
Good evening Graham & team, I would like to thank you for the top quality service I have received from start to finish. My wife said the fitting team were very helpful and professional during the installation today....I am very impressed with the quality of the installation and product...I will not hesitate recommending your company to friends and colleagues...have a great Christmas many thanks
Dear Graham, we had an awful experience some years ago when our electric garage doors were installed by a Nottingham based company. Last week your company installed a new motor within a couple of days of contacting you. Our experience was so different. David came out and assessed the situation and the work was then carried out by Nigel. Both men were extremely professional, courteous and friendly. We are delighted with the new motor and any amendments made. The garage door has never worked better. Many thanks again for restoring our faith. We know where to come next time!
I was very impressed with the service from everyone at Mansfield Garage Doors - service as it used to be - thank you!
Just a quick email to say a big thank you to you and your team for brightening up my garage..... I just LOVE the door. David and Michael were brilliant...... and my side door works now too!! I would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone!
Can I take this opportunity to say what a fantastic job your fitters did. My wife and I are very happy with the complete service provided by yourselves. Thanks again.
Hi, just a line to say thank you for the efficient service on the installation of our new garage door. Your fitters were courteous friendly and hard working, clean and tidy, and did a really good job. We are very pleased with the door, and all in all, happy with your service. Please pass on our thanks to the lads.
We would like to take this opportunity to say what a fantastic job the installers have made in fitting our new Hormann door. They arrived at the arranged time and got on with the job immediately. Their attention to detail is second to none and we are highly delighted with the end result! Would highly recommend your company.
Thanks for a job well done. Very impressed with the care and precision exercised by your men, very easy to get on with. Please thank them for me. Very happy with the result!
Just a note to say how impressed I was with the workmanship and pleasantness of your engineers when fitting my new garage door. I came on recommendation from a neighbour and I certainly would have no hesitation in recommending your firm, thankyou!
I would like to pass my thanks on to your surveyor, who surveyed for my new garage door and to the fitting team who carried out the installation yesterday. They were all thoroughly professional and their attention to detail was spot on. They even did extra work to cover up obstructions to make the job look immaculate! Very impressed with their workmanship and will definitely recommend your company to others!
Please pass on my sincere thanks to Graham and the team for carrying out such a wonderful job, I am very happy with my new garage door and I shall definitely be recommending you to others!
I am very happy with my garage doors, the engineers were very professional throughout, very informative and cleared the site well afterwards, leaving it very clean and tidy. They also made some valuable suggestions with regard to further work at my property involving my gates!
I am so very sorry for not signing my cheque (put it down to old age!!), I thank you for your understanding and your very prompt action in servicing the garage door. It is so refreshing to come across such a nice firm to deal with.
We are pleased with the door and the workmanship of your engineers, it was a pleasure to have them on the premises.
Thank you so very much not only for the quick and professional way you repaired our garage door, but your honesty in returning the £20 I overpaid you. We often forget that there are still good people in this world, but your kindness and honesty reminded us that there are still some around. Our kindest regards
Thank you very much for the excellent repair and service on my garage door. You came when you said you would. The work was completed efficiently and within the hour and you charged less than you quoted! The door works better than it ever did before. Thank you once again.
Thank you so much for dealing so swiftly with my problem, I shall certainly bear you in mind when I need a new door.
Just a short note to thank you most sincerely for your excellent service in repairing my garage door, which we have inherited from our previous house owners. Your response time was excellent, as was the attention given by your courteous and pleasant staff. Even better was your account, which I consider to be very good value for money. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone.
I was very impressed with the service I received from your company. Someone came the day after my phone call and returned the following day to fit the springs – he was extremely pleasant and helpful. In an age when getting anything done usually takes weeks, it really was a refreshing change to experience such fast, efficient service.
“I would like to take this chance to thank you for the excellent work carried out by your fitters.They have completed the work and cleaned up after themselves. You have done a great job and provided an excellent service – I will pass on my comments to anyone I find in need of new a garage door!”
Once again I must tell you what a pleasure it has been to do business with Mansfield Garage Doors. I am delighted with my new door, and was very impressed with the quality of the workmanship and helpfulness of the fitters!
