Whether you habitually carry an old notebook with you or you are one of the many that store such important contact information on your mobile phone, this is one important contact that you really ought to have stored safely away until such time that the unexpected happens. This could be you finally arriving home late at night after a long journey from the city. It is dark outside. You press the remote to open your garage door.
But nothing happens. You are not stuck in traffic. But you are stuck in the dark. Panic-stricken, you realize that there is a fault somewhere between your secure (well, it was until now) remote and the short distance to your garage door. You did not prepare yourself for this, so as you make your way to the door, you are unable to detect any clues along the perimeters of your garage door. But once you have quickly dialed him from your mobile, your garage door repair and maintenance technician will be able to see everything as clear as daylight.
While you were not, he was prepared for every eventuality, even extremely late night emergency calls for help. He can find his way up your driveway easily enough because, of course, he has his handy LED powered torch to hand. And as he places it on the floor of your driveway, he is able to access the correct tool for opening your garage door. Perhaps it is not the door that is at fault. It could be a fault in the remote.
He has prepared for that as well. So, through his toolbox he quickly flips. It might be too late in the night to find the necessary replacement parts but sure as anything, there may be a spare remote device you can use in the meantime. The garage door opens easily enough, just as it always did before. You switch on the garage light and allow your handy garage door repair and maintenance technician to undergo a further inspection, and, hey presto, he’s detected the fault already.
What would you have done had you not had this important gentleman on your important list of contacts? Not stuck in the dark, perhaps you’re already inside. But your car’s still stuck in the driveway. Where you’re located, is this even safe?
