HOUSTON, Nov. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The global supply chain crisis due to Covid-19 has severely affected the garage door repair industry, caused huge delays and escalated price, much to the disappointment and frustration of customers. Garage Door Service & Repair Inc. explains that since the start of the pandemic, people have started investing in various home improvements, but supply is slow and parts are expensive.
“Due to Covid-19, we have seen many shutdowns and suspended operations”, says Thomas Wang, CEO of Garage Door Service & Repair Inc. “We have heard of people being made redundant and many quarantines. Health comes first and so we have all taken action. The entire supply chain is shaking. There are not enough garage door parts. If we can’t deliver, customers can’t get. “
Difficulties in the global supply chain have affected all local garage door companies. There are many industries involved in manufacturing aluminum, glass, and wood products, from garage doors to springs. With the pandemic slowing or suspending businesses, delays are inevitable. Prices have risen in the steel and lumber industries – to name just two. Therefore, the prices of garage doors have also increased.
“People in the market for new garage door cables or springs because theirs are old or broken have a hard time finding replacements. And they believe it’s our fault. Of course, we are totally in touch with them and are by their side, but we have to say that it is not the fault of the companies. It is not only that there is a shortage of garage door parts, but also problems in the transportation industry. Since prices have gone up, even those who get garage door spring replacements, for example, have to pay double the price and wait double the time. “
The paradox is that because of the Covid, people are investing in home improvement, replacement and repair of their garage door. “This is the problem,” Wang said. “Due to Covid, a lot of people are working from home and reinvesting in their homes. We get a lot of orders but because there is a problem with the supply chain, there is a delay. The longer the delay, the more orders pile up, causing further delays. And when, finally, people get their garage doors, sometimes parts are missing. “
