Gates & More
We're honored by the words of appreciation from our clients. Our clients inspire us every day to provide beautiful, reliable gate systems.
"I wanted to write and to tell you how impressed we are with your company and with our new gate. Not only is the gate just what we had hoped for, but working with Automated Gates and Equipment has been a truly wonderful experience. Your professionalism, efficiency and dedication to quality all exceeded expectations. Our total project involved dozens of sub-contractors and I can honestly say none were as impressive as AEGates. We are thoroughly impressed with your people and with the quality of your product. From our first meeting with Doug, through the design process, the communication along the way, right though to your installers, every aspect of the project has been excellent. Thank you for being a fantastic company!"
"This is just a brief note to tell you have pleased we are with our new gate and fence. The installation was done very well and it looks great. The gate has been working perfectly (which I'm sure is no surprise to you!). We enjoyed our many interactions (both by phone and in person) with you and the others at Automated Gates and Equipment. Everybody there displays competence and customer care. I felt that Miranda got us off to a good start, and then you were there for a successful finish! The whole process took a long time, but everything was extremely well done."
"…thank you very much for the first-class service I received from your company when you installed an electric sliding gate at my residence in Ballard recently.
"From the first time we met to discuss the project, through the entire construction phase you have been awesome to keep me updated on the status at all times and delivered everything right on schedule and budget. The gate and equipment was installed very professionally and works flawlessly. I was impressed by how smooth and quiet the gate runs. The concrete work, welding, painting and general workmanship were all exemplary. Above all, I appreciated your flexibility to accommodate my schedule and special requests."
"We would like to compliment your company and in particular, Dennis, for the beautiful installation (of the electronics) of our automated gate. Dennis was very professional, exceptionally skilled and accommodated our every need. Please let him know how pleased we are with his performance.
"The gate turned out better than what we anticipated. With the mounted lights on both gate posts, it looks fantastic.
"Again, thanks to all of your crew for doing such a splendid job."
"Robert did an amazing job! He was on time, made sure we approved the work as he went along. He was courteous, professional and a stellar representative for Automated Gates. Thank you for assigning him to our project."
"…thank you for doing such a beautiful job on our project. We are pleased with you and the entire service you and Automated Equipment provided.
“Thank you for being so prompt and returning our calls in a timely fashion. We appreciate the manner in in which you updated us and the efficiency of all the employees at Automated! Building is such a stressful time, and having companies and people like you really helps! Thank you!"
"…working on a house long distance can be difficult, but you and your staff made it uncomplicated and easy.
“We couldn't have done it without your help in coordinating the permitting, the security features, the lighting, and the future pool access. We feel the fencing has only enhanced the look of our home. We are thrilled with the whole project. Thank you so much."
"…my mother is somewhat handicapped and she feels quite reassured with gates in the front of the house. The workmanship and professionalism your team has provided, gave us much reassurance through the months I have known you. I especially would like to thank Mike, Rob and Dave, Mike, and many others who were involved in making this project complete. Your work is excellent, as introduced by several of my friends who have worked with your company. I highly recommend your company for anyone who is in need for the automated gates. My mother sends a special thanks to you and your team for your excellent work. "
"…thank you for your company's work on the recently completed driveway gate.
"This project presented a number of challenges throughout the process, from the design phase through construction to completion of the project. Our client was extremely demanding and your ability to meet their demands at the initial stages of the project was greatly appreciated. Your enthusiasm and ability to accommodate our unique design features and willingness to work with us during changes through the course of construction reinforced your commitment to fulfilling our needs and wishes as well as our client's. Thank you for the attention and the professionalism you brought to this project, your attentiveness made my relationship with our client much easier. The end result is a product that both our client and our firm is very happy with.
"We look forward to doing business with you again in the future."
"I would like to bring to your attention one of your employees. Her name is Debra, your service coordinator. And no, this is not a complaint; in fact, it is quite the opposite.
"I have dealt with other access control and gate vendors in the past, and have had trouble finding someone reliable to deal with. Some of them didn't even return phone calls, even when there was a sure sale involved.
"Finding your company, and in particular Debra, has been a real breath of fresh air. She always takes the time to help us with any problem we might have, or even any part, no matter how small it might be. No matter how busy she is, she always helps us with any of our needs, and always returns calls and follows up on all our orders. Any questions that we might have are always answered.
"Because of this, you have made my job a lot easier. After all, no one wants a security gate stuck open at an airport.
"All of the people I have met at your company are great to deal with; Debra is exceptional.
"Thanks to all of you for the great job that you do."
"Today, Greg arrived and installed the new gate. I want you to know that he was very professional, knowledgeable and efficient in his work. He is a great representative for your company.
"The new gate is wonderful and everything that we hoped for as a replacement and upgrade. We are very pleased with the service that your company has provided."
"Our gate mechanism is about 40 years old and well outdated. It stopped working, and Automated Gates managed to replace the controller while even keeping our remote controls working. Saved us a complete replacement."
"I want to thank you for getting the guys out several times in the last several weeks to tweak our new gate. Since the last visit by Michael, we have had only one time when the gate was opened, and then inexplicably stayed open. Michael said it sometimes takes a few months to work out a new gate's initial kinks, and I was pleased to hear that you all would stand behind it. We are very pleased with the gate. It is beautiful and we look forward to it being in service for many years to come."
"Thanks to Chris for the excellent job!"
"I wanted to write and say thank you to Rick for helping me fix my gates on Sunday, May 21st. When they wouldn't shut I didn't know what to do. I called Rick and he was able to talk me through it and the gates closed. I didn't realize there is a 24 hour emergency number to call or I would have called that; all I had was Rick's numbers. Even though it was his day off he was kind enough to help me in a courteous and professional manner. He had every right to be hacked off at me but didn't let it show
"Without trying to sound too mushy, I truly am appreciative and this is indicative of the integrity of your employees. I feel the compassion Rick has to help his customers is deserving of much more than the little token I have enclosed. Thanks very much!"
"In April, Harvard Estate Condominiums retained Automated Gates & Equipment to replace our original six year old aluminum fencing and gates with new iron fencing, gates and gate closers. Automated Gates & Equipment was highly recommended and we are thankful we made the choice to purchase our new fencing system from you.
"Your company exceeded our expectations as to quality, cost, delivery, and service.
"From my first visit to your offices, when Ken toured me throughout the fabrication area, I was impressed with the people I met and my expectations were high. The customer interface starts at the front desk and your receptionist Marcy always had a smile on her face and was helpful in getting me to the right people.
"Please offer my sincerest "Thank You" to your entire team. Doug was great to work with in defining our needs and establishing a fair price. Jason was great to work with in finalizing a design that met our needs. Mike was great to work with in scheduling the installation to comply with the association needs for security and speed. The crew you sent to install the gate and fencing system did so with professionalism, care, and attention to detail. There were others in addition to Chris and Greg-please thank them all.
"The new fencing system was a vast improvement over what we had and the owners at Harvard Estate have offered many compliments."
"We want to thank you and the people of your company for the great service we had last week when our gate equipment was worked on. Ken arrived when expected and was very professional, knowledgeable and nice. On the telephone, the people in your office we also courteous and efficient. Wish we could say the same about other companies we have to deal with."
"You have quite a crew working for you; you're lucky to have such kind, knowledgeable and efficient staff. Specifically Debra and Greg.
"...We have had a number of issues with our South Lake Union barrier gate. Every time I have called to effect a repair, Debra has "made it happen"; sometimes, even when I know she's booked solid. We appreciate the quick turnaround as it affects, greatly, our customers who rely on this gate working. Greg is as knowledgeable a technician as any I've met. He is quick, efficient, and never takes my concerns, as trivial.
"Thank you greatly for the wonderful service and I look forward to working with you in the future."
"…I had a GTO gate that stopped working. I called 3 different companies including yours. The 1st company…supposedly a GTO recommended company, came in, looked at my system for 10 minutes, flipped a GFI switch and charged me $175. In an hour the gate was not working again. He wanted to charge me another $175 to come in and do another check. I reported him to the Better Business Bureau.
"I called another gate company in Tacoma. They responded promptly, but the technician seemed annoyed to answer my questions concerning the scope of the project, the equipment they are selling and the contract bid.
"It was then that I called your company. I must admit navigating your phone system after the operator answered and getting a call back was a challenge. But once I got to the right person, everything fell into place… I was immediately scheduled for an evaluation. All my questions were answered… [you] understood the urgency of my need to have the gate system working. Robert, the technician, was very professional and knowledgeable. It was very comforting to hear Robert say that once I am a customer, I am considered a client of your company for life and would get the support that I would need. Overall, it was a seamless and reassuring experience.
"I understand that you are a big company handling multiple large ventures. I am very grateful that you took care of my residential needs despite the smaller scope of my project. Thank you."
"In reference to your installation technician, Robert, I wanted to inform you of how great and professional a job that he did for us. He does excellent work and has a professional attitude toward his job. Robert prepped, installed and coordinated the work involved. As a result, the gate works well and we wanted to let you know that you have a very fine employee working for you."
"Thank you for the excellent service that Pebble Beach Homeowners received from Chris on our gate maintenance. He was very informative and allowed me to be present during the entire service."
"On behalf of Hill Top Ranch, we would like to thank you for all of your support and dedication in helping our dream come true."
"It gives me great satisfaction to recommend the services of Automated Gates & Equipment for other businesses in need. Automated Gates, and in particular, Kyle is a great person to work with and their customer service is above and beyond what we could have expected.
"Automated Gates & Equipment recently installed our security camera system. The final cost of the system came out to be the same price as the estimate, even though several upgrades were installed to our system per the recommendation of Kyle. The installers were very professional and educated in the field of work they do and we feel confident that we can depend on them to always take care of any security issues. And the follow-up to our initial installation has been exemplary as well. Kyle answers my questions, and has trained me further on how to use the system to the best of its ability for our building.
"I am very pleased to say that Automated Gates & Equipment has done a great job. We will continue to use your services for many years to come."
"This letter is to express our appreciation to your staff Debra and your installation foreman Greg for their professional work.
"We came home from out of town today and found our gate was wide opened. I called your company. Debbie immediately took action and found Greg who was on his way home. He stopped by and fixed our gate, at the same time Greg explained to me what had happened. With prompt action provided by both of your employees, we can sleep well tonight.
"Greg is a very knowledgeable and kind person to educate and showed me all the necessary functions of the gate. We cannot thank him enough.
"Wishing your company continued success in this difficult economic time. Thank you."
"We are so happy with your gate, your sales and service departments.
"At the age of 74 and 78, dealing with our rolling, chain link gate (which had to work with two inclines) was only going to become more difficult. So from our yellow pages we called a firm and were told he would drop by "soon" to check it out. He never showed. The yellow pages gave us another number, with the same results. After 4-5 months, we tried another number and were told they didn't deal with residential but gave us your number. Tim told us he had another appointment in our area that day and we set a time for him to drop by. (Hooray!) He did, returned a few days later with Mike to firm up how to deal with the changes in grade. Tim was most helpful in helping us to reach our final decisions and advising us about equipment and timing. (The worst part was waiting in line for our turn at installation. Business must be good.)
"Anyway, finally we had our gate and were very happy with it except for our key chain remotes which were not at all satisfactory. We tried to live with them for about two months and finally called Tim to express our dissatisfaction, telling him what worked one day and did not the next time. He called us back to tell us we were getting the remote we had originally been shown pictures of when he thought they were what we would be given. Well, now we couldn't be happier with the whole system. At our increasing age and Ollie's mobility difficult after not so successful two back surgeries, it has made our life much easier. Please convey our satisfaction with Tim, Mike and Michael (the installer)."
"Thank you so much for coming out to service my gate and teach me about the fuse box! I have been overwhelmed since my husband passed away in June so your courtesy, helpfulness and the “non” bill was a ray of light after many dark days!"
"I'm sending this letter to express my appreciation for the excellent and professional service Chris provided on our service call. He was very courteous and outgoing. It's no wonder your company has such a high success rate when you hire the best service technicians possible. I really appreciate it. Thanks."
"The gates look as if they've always been there. Our kids say that now the can have a puppy (we're willing to wait!). Most important - we feel that our kids are safer in our yard. Thanks so much for designing and fabricating such beautiful gates. We appreciate your efforts! Thank you!"
"We want to thank you for our beautiful gate. It adds so much to our home (when my mom first saw it she said "it looks like a mini-estate!"). It really does look "snazzy", simple, elegant-all rolled into one. Plus, I feel much safer - even while I'm home. After several months, we still haven't had any problems using it. Mike gave great instructions! We also would like to thank Brian and Mike for their professionalism and kindness. Also, the women at the front counter/phones we always helpful and professional. Thank you all for a wonderful gate and a pleasant experience!”
"Many thanks to you, Mike, Greg and all others who had a hand in installing our new gates. We are enjoying the luxury of automated gates and they look great, too!"
