Today I had a phone call from a guy who purchased a cheap Chinese sliding gate motor off an online auction website.
He asked me if we kept parts for a Lockmaster sliding gate motor.
He said it was brand new and he had purchased it from Ebay. He also said he had contacted the supplier but had no response and was desperate to find parts for it.
Now that is no surprise and I guess you could say he got little sympathy from me when I told him no one I know carries parts for cheap Chinese motors, why would we when we sell a reputable brand like Nice?
He said he thought the problem was the limit switch and again was met with what would be considered a lack of sympathy when I told him you get what you pay for.
My point is why would anyone buy a sliding or swinging gate motor from an online auction style website? The ones we’ve seen are cheap and nasty, and the suppliers don’t want to know about any issues once they have sold it and their warranty is non-existent.
There are additional security concerns with faulty electric gate motors. At some point you could potentially be either locked in or locked out of your house due to the failure of the automatic opener.
With any reputable product there is always a warranty component built into the price but with Nice, warranty issues are almost non-existent because of the time, effort and money that goes into research and development.
Italy is known for its engineering genius, some of the best supercars in the world are designed and manufactured in Italy, take Ferrari and the world’s fastest car, the Bugatti Veyron for examples of Italian engineering excellence.
We sell only the best Italian engineered and made Nice sliding and swinging gate motors. Nice are so confident with the reliability of their products that we are authorised to give a full 2 and a half years warranty on all electric and Solar motors.
Don’t fall into the trap of buying a cheap gate Chinese motor off a discount online store whether it’s an auction style service or not. Service and parts are unavailable and when they fail which they invariably do, you are on your own. You will then have the extra financial burden of purchasing a replacement good quality motor with a full Australian warranty.
