A quick Google search for "garage door repair near me" brought up an ad for QueenGarageDoorPros.com. The person who came out was from Local Garage Doors & Gates. Web page shows a License number #1057233. My 91 y/o mother was severely overcharged ($3175) for a new garage door opener and spring replacement. Also, she was charged $500 for a PAIR of new springs, and he only changed ONE spring. This "company" apparently uses business names very similar to legitimate businesses. I found and spoke to a real business called Local Garage Door & Gate (not plural) and also found a website QueenGarageDoorRepair.com (not sure if this is legitimate either, but they do have an actual address) The license #1057233 does not appear to relate to any sort of business license. They claim to be "Licensed, bonded, and Insured". Multiple attempts to contact the owner has been futile. Tammy answers both phone numbers and told me the two companies are "sister companies".
