  1. Thanks so much for sharing this information! I have been looking into garage door repair in Fremont Ca and where I might be able to find more information like this? Thanks again for sharing!

  2. I've often wondered about many of the garage door companies here in Phoenix. They seem to all be owned by the same parent company. How do I check that? It would be a monopoly if I'm correct. Thanks again.

    1. Richard -
      It is not unknown to have a company operating two or more companies in the same industry under different names. Check "Who Is" for website registration as one way to know. Likewise,in many service industry categories (plumbers etc) there are lead generation services out there... collecting leads and referring them on to other companies... That may be what you are experiencing.

  3. Thanks for sharing, I've been thinking about my liftmaster in Calgary and how I've been thinking about getting some work done, or at least trying it myself, I guess we'll see how it goes. Thanks again!
