The numbers regarding car thefts are rising in the United Kingdom every year and car owners are now taking additional steps to ensure their safety and that of their car. The garage that has been used as a laundry or a storage area is now being properly utilised again and the owners are back to putting their car in there. However, the door that was probably good enough years ago, is no longer good enough and maybe it’s time for a new door and a new way to open and close it. Garage doors have improved immensely over the years and a lot more technology is being used now.
When picking a new garage door, you can now get it with a garage door opener in Southampton and this makes all the difference in the world when having to open and close it. Here are some additions that you can get added to your door.
- A garage door with a garage door opener now comes with a remote control. As you approach the door in your car, you just press and point and the door will open automatically assisted by the mechanical door opener.
- You can also place a sensor on your drive and if you time it just right, when you pass the sensor, the door will begin to open. When you arrive it is fully opened and when you enter the garage, it will close behind you.
- If remotes and sensors are not your thing, then you just use a key system to open your door. The motor will open and close the door for you at the turn of a key.
Whichever method you decide to choose, you are assuring the safety of yourself and your vehicle. Be sure to choose wisely.
