This morning seemed to have gone much worse than yesterday morning.
I woke up at 4:30am this morning because I had to be sure to have a large proposal together to be delivered to a prospect’s inbox at 7am this morning. Waking up earlier than normal meant I had to get the coffee maker going right away. In and out of the shower, breakfast from the toaster – that proposal was on my mind. I looked at the clock on the way out to the garage, 5:15am, perfect timing. Ten minutes to the office and I’ll have a good hour or more to get that proposal straight. Car started, radio plays my favorite song, garage door button, garage door button again…hmmmm. What the hell? Car off. Out of the car. Looking up. Pushing the button, again, and again. “Shit!”
Although it may not be the best idea, I have to ask my wife before I start calling around for a garage door repair company. Walking into the room I’m reminded of how quiet it is in the house. Touching her arm gently I say “Honey, honey. Sorry to wake you, but the garage door is not opening and I was seeing whether or not you had a problem with it last night.” She looked up at me, barely awake, “no, I don’t know why it’s like that.” I walked out of the room and googled for a garage door repair company to come out and fix my door.
It always seems to go down like this. If it was just a normal day I’d be locked in the garage but wouldn’t be worried about it. But when I have an early morning deadline, I’m locked out. Reminded of parental reminders of days past I remind myself that I shouldn’t have waited until the last minute.
A company I remember seeing commercials for is Overhead Door & Operator. They are based out of Pensacola so I figure they’ll definitely come to Pace. They were on the first page of Google so I easily found their number and gave them a ring. A guy named Jamie explained exactly what the technician would do and he was already going to be in the area this morning. Off of the phone and waiting for the technician, I figured it would be a perfect time to pull out my laptop and go over the e-mail I had to send in just a short while. There were a few changes to be made but overall it was a good proposal. Before I knew it, my phone rang and the technician was on to tell me he would be here shortly. He showed up within 1 hour of the initial call.
The problem was simple and the technician had it solved within 15 minutes. I literally pulled out and headed to work with half an hour to spare. Getting my garage door repaired cost much less than I had expected and Overhead Door & Operator really took the stress out of the situation. I appreciate the service and had to write my daily blog post about the service. If you need your garage door fixed in Pace or any of the surrounding areas I’d highly recommend Overhead Door & Operator 9601 N Palafox St, Suite 6A Pensacola, FL 32534 850-477-0333. www.odoperator.com
