Getting the Best Price on my Electric Driveway Gates

Listed Under: Advice

You’ve made up your mind to buy electric driveway gates for your property, but how do you make sure you get good value for money? With prices varying from provider to provider, how do you make sure you’re getting the best available price?

Compare like-for-like

Firstly, it is essential that you compare prices on a like-for-like basis. Whether you’ve decided to go for timber, add an intercom or opt for sliding rather than swing gates, make sure that you are getting the appropriate functionality at the best price. Prices will depend on:

Whether you choose steel, aluminium and wood as the base material
Whether you opt to include audio or video equipment
The amount of labour intensity and skill required

Quality wins out

Secondly, it is worth bearing in mind that low prices don’t always mean good value. Find out how much experience your provider has in making and installing the gates. Do they use high-quality materials? Will they maintain and repair your gates if you need them to do so? Are their electric driveway gates guaranteed?

Don’t be blinded by price
Often people go for the cheapest product they find without considering all the options. Good-quality electric driveway gates should be priced at around £4,000 and upwards, so if you’re offered a much lower price it is worth questioning why they are so cheap. Remember that your gates may prevent expensive burglaries and could even add value to your home, so it’s worth considering the bigger picture rather than simply looking for rock bottom prices.
