Lost your Garage Door Remote? No problem…for us!
Is losing your garage door remote a serious problem?
It’s definitely a hassle no one wants to deal with if they can avoid it. People lose their garage door remotes pretty regularly, especially if they have a hectic lifestyle. Plenty of life events come along that cause unassuming people to lose their garage door remotes – changing cars without remembering to take it out, letting people borrowing it without remembering to get it back, etc. A lost remote is probably not the end of the world, fortunately. Here’s what you can do to fix the problem.
Get help as soon as possible
In the event that the remote has vanished and there isn’t a keypad you can use in the meantime, consider reaching out to a local company, like Top Choice Garage Doors, to lend a hand. There are lots of companies that specialize in getting doors open and assembling a new replacement remote. If you think it’s likely that the remote has been stolen, it’s even possible to change the programming for the garage door system, so that no one will be able to enter your property with the old remote.
You don’t need to figure it out alone
It’s recommended not to try forcing open the door yourself. You can get hurt pretty badly, and the door can suffer expensive or even irreparable damage. Even if the door can be opened after a lot of hard labor, you’ll have to go through the same ordeal every time you want to get into the garage. It’s not worth it.
Don’t be afraid to acquire extra remotes
Just like with car keys or house keys, having one or two spares lying around can end up saving you stress and drama. If a lot of people (or more than one car) can be expected to be in and out of your garage space, having multiple remotes might be ideal. A lost remote can snowball into a bigger problem f it’s not handled quickly and correctly, so be honest with yourself about the best way to solve the dilemma.

Research is key here. You won’t want to hire the services of a garage door company that demonstrates shoddy workmanship.
