One of the perks of renting
and having an awesome, very responsive/attentive landlady. Last night, as DD was exiting her car after parking in the garage, as the garage door was closing at the precise moment that she and her BF were exiting the car, they heard a swoosh followed by a snap and finally the door slamming down. This dangling cable appeared to have snapped. I assume that it's orginal to the circa 1975 door openers (she previously had the other side serviced). I e-mailed her last night, she got right back to me, asking me to send her the info on the garage door man's car (actually a sticker on the wall and the door opener he repaired) and she called him (they offer 24 hour service). She e-mailed me again after I sent the info (I had already gone to bed, so I got the message in the AM), asking me to phone the repair man that night, he'd come out today, if that was convenient or set up another day/time. I called him at 7 a.m. from work, and he came out for 10 a.m. DD and BF were home so he made the repair in one hour, replacing 2 springs, 4 cables, 4 pulleys, 2 nylon rollers to teh tune of $350. LL left her CC info with the repair man, so he simply left a copy of the work order with DD.
