DIRECT SAFE DRIVE OPERATOR – DOWNTOWN PORSCHE

Downtown Porsche has the best selection of new and pre-owned Porsche vehicles in the GTA. They are also one of the higher volume Porsche dealerships in the city, servicing over 100+ cars daily. Dealerships like this one, require the correct application of commercial overhead doors that are able to facilitate the repetitive operation of their bay doors. The challenge they were experiencing, was the constant replacement of torsion springs on their bay doors due to a higher than normal operation. As a result, there was productivity loss and multiple repair bills. Wilcox Door Service was called in to advise and assist in discovering an economic solution to the problem. Once we were able to understand the customers challenge with regards to their overhead doors, the solution was easy. In less than 48 Hrs, Wilcox Door was able to remove the standard jackshaft application along with the “high cycle” torsion assembly and install an economic, high speed springless assembly. Using this new efficient equipment not only solved the issue of repair bills, but it also provided Porsche with energy rebates and created a more energy efficient environment long term. Once complete, Wilcox also enrolled them in a Planned Maintenance Program that allows our technician to come in for schedule inspections on equipment to avoid unforeseen downtime.

If your car dealership is in need of a reliable commercial door service company that can respond to your needs immediately please give Wilcox Door Service a call. Get started
