Our business owner, John Collier, started working in the garage door industry when he left school in 1980 at the tender age of 17. He began working alongside PC Henderson – leading UK manufacturers of up and over garage doors at the time. There he started to learn about all aspects of the doors and their installations.
With his willingness to learn and his natural ability, he soon progressed and was appointed National Sales Manager with another leading garage door producer. The role included training installation & fitting to his team.
While heading up the nationwide sales force he very quickly became a well respected figure with other garage door companies.
After working in this position for several years he was approached by a large European manufacturer of garage door remote control systems & home automation.
In 1996 John was appointed as UK Sales Director. He used his contacts within the industry to secure an exclusive supply contract with the largest UK manufacturer- Henderson Garage Doors.
His new career was challenging – travelling the length & breadth of the country to demonstrate the remote control system. Providing training of its installation to other garage door engineers & fitters was very fulfilling as he built great relationships all over the country which he still uses today.
It was inevitable that sooner or later John would tire of working for a large organisation and in May 2005 he decided to use all the knowledge he had gained to set up his own company. Alexandra Garage Doors was started, using the name of his daughter as the company title.

“A first class professional job from start to finish by Alexandra Garage Doors From the initial visit to completion – no fuss – no problems – no mess – a great installation Brilliant transformation in a few hours to the overall look of the house. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED – look no further.”
“Unbeatable price and a job well done! Took less than 40 mins and replaced one of the oldest Cardale spring systems! Was quoted £400+ to change the mechanism of my garage door from Google’s top 4 garage door repair services in Burnley. One company with 20+ years experience said I can’t change the mechanism at all and will need a brand new door costing up to £800! Alexandra Garage Doors with 35+ years experience said it CAN be replaced and saved me £100’s! Recommend him to anyone, lovely chap friendly and knows what he’s talking about!”
“No complaints apart from no photos 🙂 didn’t meet John and didn’t need to. I asked him to look at the job, price the job, and then do the job. He did all of that and the job was spot on. Quality work. Thank you John.”
“Recently had a problem with our remote controlled Henderson garage door which had ceased to work. I was given John Collier’s contact details and phoned him about the problem. John was extremely pleasant to deal with. He returned calls promptly and visited at the arranged time. On the day he came to complete the repair (which he squeezed in before his holiday), my mum had been taken poorly and John was very patient as he tried to wake my sleeping teenage son! All in all, I was extremely pleased with all aspects of the job. Thanks.”
“From the very first meeting with the owner, I was convinced that this was the company with which I wished to do business. John showed me a comprehension album of doors, most of which were in situ. In a very relaxed but professional manner, he advised and guided me; all without any sense of manipulation or pressure. When the work was to be carried out, he arrived dead on time and on the day he promised. (Rare I think these days!) The company’s installation of the door was equal to my highest expectations. Alexandra Garage Doors; highly recommended!!”

I would happily recommend their work.”

I emailed John about the repair and he responded the same day and said he could fit us in the following day, which he did, He rang me prior to coming advising me of the estimated time of arrival and arrived bang on time. On arrival the job was slightly worse than anticipated due to lack of repair and poor use by ourselves. Nevertheless, he persevered with repairing the door and mechanism and was able to complete the job leaving us delighted with the finished job. I would highly recommend John, as he is extremely professional and is not easily phased by challenging jobs.”
