Garage Door Tune Up

Have you been driving around Jacksonville and seen those little "Free Garage Door Tune Up" signs in the medians and on the side of the road with the phone number 904-588-**** on them? THIS IS A SCAM! It's a husband and wife team who will use the "tune up" to your garage door as an excuse to case your garage and home. They will come back later and steal all your belongings. Don't fall for this. They will "tune you up" all right. Be smart, there is nothing for free in this world. Don't learn the hard way.

I have to say that I took advantage of the free garage door tune-up earlier this year, and couldn't be happier with the result. My garage door is working great.

After the tuneup, I did go online and do some research and found a negative comment which had me worried at the time.

However, I just found out today that my kid goes to school with someone whose dad is the one that had been removing the signs and making disparaging comments online. I felt compelled to come on here and set things straight that the service was great, and I'll definitely be calling Quality Door when I have a need for a major repair.

Trust me on this, Peter Snavley (the owner of Quality Door Company and the guy running this scam) is one smooth talker and he will try his best to talk his way into your home and garage, and then try to upsell you on "required work" or "garage door maintenance to make your children safe" and thus worm his weaselly way into your wallet or pocketbook. If that doesn't work, he'll try coercion.

Then as soon as you have the smallest of disagreements with him, he'll get all crazy angry and temperamental and try to intimidate you. He actually got in my face and threatened physical violence!

Steer clear of this bad apple! He and some of his family are going to get arrested soon for online threats of rape and violence made in another thread to one of his former garage door customers, Google his name and you'll see it.

We thought we needed a new door. So we called A1A Overhear Garage Doors of Jacksonville and the guy said the door could not be fixed and that we needed a new door.

The good price he was willing to give us was $1,700.00. We next called Precision Overhead Garage Door Service. They wanted 1,965.00. We even called this company called Affordable.

Not so affordable! On July 6th my husband seen a sign about a free garage door tune up. We called. Peter came out that same evening.

Took one look at the door and said it will cost $425.00 to fix the door and to get it running like new. What a SHOCK it was to hear that our door could even be fixed! We were told by all the other compines that we needed a new door and that ours could not be fixed. Peter came to our house the next evening.

He cut up some 2x4s and fixed both ends of the door. He put bracing on our door (six braces) and put two new springs on top of the door. Our door has never worked this good. Peter is a man of honor.

We neeed more businessmen like him.

Peter called me about these postings today.

I am sad to see Peter wanting to fight these other guys.

Peter, say no more to anyone on this site. Your good work will always follow you and people like me will spread the good news about you.

I've heard about the "free garage door tune up" scam happening in other big cities! Basically the guy tells you he's "balancing and lubricating" the garage door but as part of this procedure he sets it so it's really easy to break into.

While he's at your house he cases the place and all your belongings, then goes home and tells his brothers and homies where you live and what you have. Then they watch your house and while you're at work, voila, all your stuff magically disappears!!

I live in the same neighborhood as Peter Snavley, he has 3 big dogs who bark all hours of the night and day, one of 'em is a pit bull. I hear them dog fights from his backyard, and he has a large 420 growing operation, would you let him into your house to do any work???
