What to do When You Lose Your Garage Door Remote

It’s a more common problem than you might think. When you’re running around, switching cars, or loaning garage door remotes to family members, you might end up losing one of your remotes. While this problem can be annoying, you don’t need to panic. Learn what to do below.

As a local company, we are always in the greater Houston area and can quickly come to the rescue. We will be able to open your door and replace your lost remote.

Don’t Try to Solve the Problem Yourself

Attempting to manually open your garage door can lead to serious injuries and can also damage your door. Even if you attempt to manually open the door, it will be cumbersome to continuously open the door without a remote! Calling a professional is the safest and most convenient option.

Consider Additional Remotes

One of the most common reasons that people lose their garage door remotes is because they are constantly sharing them. If you have multiple cars or if several different people need access to your garage door, you may want to consider additional garage door remotes. Garage Door Doctor can order more remotes for you so every trusted source can have easy access to the garage.
