How does this online store work?

By enquiring online you are not placing a final confirmed order! 

We know that buying a new driveway gate is a large decision and we want to make your process as easy and hassle-free as possible. Usually you will contact several companies to get quotes and then wait for ages for people to respond just to setup a meeting onsite. Does this sound familiar?

We have been guilty of this ourselves because we only had two salesmen and every single product variation had to be drawn from scratch in order to quote. We were overwhelmed with enquiries and sadly we let many people down because it just took too long for us to respond to all the potential clients. We used to spend hours late into the night designing every product for every request and saying to ourselves, "I've designed this before, there must be a faster way!" We would send out quotes for elaborate designs only to hear from clients that the price was nowhere near what they expected. Our fault for not educating the market!

How much does a driveway gate cost? The answer is: "It depends."

  1. It depends on what you want to achieve?
  2. It depends on your aesthetic requirements?

Every variable and detail can affect how much a driveway gate will cost:

  • how high must the gate be?
  • what type of cladding?
  • what type of spike?
  • how wide is the driveway?
  • is there a motor?
  • is it being painted?
  • what does the site look like?
  • how long is the guarantee?
  • what is the steel price doing, is the steel of quality?
  • what are the labour rates, does the company pay a living wage?
  • does the company have insurance?
  • is the company tax compliant?

We have done the homework to enable our potential customer to have control of the design for their own driveway gate. We curated our most popular designs and are also embarking on a campaign to educate the market to allow customers to do more research and know more before making this large decision. 

We have setup this online store to facilitate quick price comparison and subsequently a much faster salesman turnaround.
