    Not sure where to post this but here goes.

    I have a Glidermatic Roller Garage Door that has an old Gliderol GMMBR4 controller and motor which has now gone faulty and for which spares are no longer available. It was fitted in 1998.

    I have been told that the direct retrofit replacement is the Gliderol RW1.

    This is quoted on the Gliderol site as £390 but I have seen it advertised on one site for £290 incl delivery and on ebay (from reputable dealer) at £190 including delivery.

    This compares to 2 quotes I have had locally for supply and fit at £540 and £590 respectively.

    I was wondering if anyone has any idea where I could find someone to fit the motor if I buy it myself (I can't do the work myself unfortunately).

    I live in the Colchester, Essex area.

    Thanks
