An Important Message For Anyone Wary of Free Consultations from Edmonton Door Companies…

It’s been awhile since you’ve had your door checked out.

Nothing appears to be wrong, but you have that nagging feeling in your gut that you should have a tech look at it before a spring fails, or in case a sensor is misaligned. You want to call for a consultation but there’s one thing stopping you: the stress that the free garage door consultation isn’t actually free.

We know your great grandfather told you nothing in life is free. However, even if you’ve been burned before by gimmicky salespeople or aggressive tactics from other door companies, we would love for you to hear us out.

Here are three myths about garage door consultations that don’t apply to Abe’s Door:

Myth 1: Free Consultation = Sales Pitch

At Abe’s, we love overhead doors (duh).

We want to spread the garage door love, so our business is about building relationships first. Have you seen our video? It will give you a better feel for how our family does business, so you don’t need to worry about being pitched when we come over to check out your door.

We offer free consultations so we can listen to your questions and concerns about door repairs (not to steer the conversation to products and services we want to upsell you on).

We aspire to make the best recommendations and will never try to sell you on something we don’t believe you truly need.

Myth 2: A consultation won’t teach me anything new

This is one of the biggest myths about free consultations. It is our goal to help you learn something new, and prevent future garage door failures.

During an Abe's Door consultation, we send one of our overhead door experts to check out your door, inspect any damage or issues, and make recommendations based on years of experience and expertise. You might think you’ll have to open your wallet for a brand new product, but often the solution will be a garage door repair.

We’ll tell you how long it will take to fix or replace, about how much it will cost, and whether or not it’s safe to use in the interim. If you’re interested, our garage door experts can also lead a safety meeting at your shop when they visit, giving you a step up on safety tips that could save you money in the long run.

Myth 3: Consultations drag on forever

You’re busy running your business. So are we! We understand the last thing you need is a sales rep taking up your valuable time with a conversation that could have been an email. This is where we feel we really stand out as a door company in Edmonton.

A consultation with Abe’s will be at your home (or shop) and focused on your door repair or concerns. We send garage door experts, not sales reps, so you get real service and quality advice as quickly as possible. We’ll get right to the point, but take enough time to thoroughly assess your overhead door and make recommendations.


We hope you’re feeling more comfortable and ready to welcome a free consultation. When you want to know more, we’ll be here to listen.
