Excellent service and product. Highly recommended.
Thorough, clean & prompt. Good service from start to finish.
I am just so happy with my lovely new gates. I keep going outside to have another look at them! Absolutely first class service from start to finish. I have absolutely no problem in recommending 'The Gatemaker'. Brilliant customer service, lovely people to deal with, fantastic product, I cannot fault this company. Thank you to all involved.
The Gatemaker did an excellent job of repairing and refurbishing our garden gates which are very old, very big and were in a poor state. We are extremely happy with the work they have done - the gates look beautiful and now hang level as well. They really did exceed our expectations.
I am very satisfied with the work I have had done, also the quality of the railings & gates. The four guys I met were polite & worked hard.
From start to finish it was a seamless process. The quote was very reasonable. The quality of the gates was excellent. When I needed to ring up, everyone was very helpful. The fitters arrived on time and did a 1st class job, clearing up any debris and wiping the gates down. I would not hesitate to recommend.
Excellent product. Excellent service & fitting. Very good price.
Gates were refurbished to a very high standard. We would happily recommend Bernie and his team. Everyone was very helpful and polite. A pleasure to deal with.
The service, quality of product and value for money were all excellent. James the Senior… fitter and his apprentice Gary were very efficient, professional and polite. The best company I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I cannot recommend them highly enough. EXCELLENT……!!
Arrived when they said they would. Cleared up all the mess. Did an absolutely brilliant job. Would recommend to anyone.
Very good, friendly, reliable. Came back quickly to fix 2 small faults.
I would like to thank the team for the very professional handling of my order, from the initial site visit, quotation and ordering. The whole process was faultless and the installation team did an excellent job too. The gates and railings were made quickly and provide a fantastic frontage to my property. Congratulations on providing an excellent service. Thank you Bernie.
Job done within a few days of ordering. Josh and his mate arrived bang on time and did the job quickly and efficiently, and with good humour! Cleared up and took away all the waste. A really excellent job. No hesitation in recommending the Gatemaker.
I was very impressed with their good time-keeping, the quality and appearance of the product and the excellent fit of the finished gates. When a problem arose during fitting, it was quickly dealt with and the gates were in place by the end of the day as promised.
Highly recommended this company. Friendly & professional. Excellent service, high quality, quick service.
After researching the internet for a hand rail for the drive and railing round some steps I chose The Gate Maker Midlands Ltd for a quote. This was informative and gave me some ideas to what I needed. I accepted the quote. The service was quick and the posts and railings were fitted. I am very pleased with the workmanship and the quality of the products. I would recommend to my friends and family. I fact our neighbours are interested in having railings supplied for their property.
Excellent service and workmanship.
We had The Gatemaker install two handrails yesterday. Not only did they complete the job earlier than expected, the quality of the finished items were amazing. They turned up in good time, phoning a couple of hours before to check we would be home, then installed the handrails in a professional and friendly manner. Josh and Bono were really helpful. I had not wanted handrails that give the appearance of a disability issue, so they made two metal half wheels which look great. We are really pleased with them and the service given by this company - Thank You.
Excellent service, prompt and on time when arranging fitting times. Would recommend.
Whole team are amazing, from ordering to fitting. Beautiful quality gates and railings, fitted within a week of ordering. Cannot recommend any higher - brilliant!
Very helpful people. Good workmanship.
Great service, staff very friendly, tidied as they worked. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
I had a visit on Tuesday, priced up & measured, next day they turned up, did the job, left me well pleased. I could & would recommend this firm.
Everything about the service we received and the quality of the product fitted was exceptional, from getting a quote on the first appointment to the high standard of railings and gate fitted. All of the staff that we had contact with throughout the whole process were extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly. We were so happy with the finished product, so many people have commented on how great it looks. It was an absolute pleasure from start to finish and we would definitely recommend them and would not hesitate to use them again.
The Gatemaker fitted some railings on the stone wall at the front of our house. We are really pleased with the quality of the railings and the service we received. Bernie and his team were extremely helpful and efficient and even provided an additional mini panel, which wasn't on the original order, to join the railing to the garden fence perpendicular to the railings. We wanted the railings to make the garden more secure for our dog and this extra mini panel together with the rest of the railings helped to do this perfectly. We highly recommend Bernie and his team. Thank you to all at the Gatemaker who helped with our job.
Very quick service; had quote on Thursday and gates were fitted on following Saturday. Good team.
Excellent service. Quality product.
We've had two side gates and a double run of gates across our drive supplied by this company and we are completely satisfied with both jobs. Everybody we dealt with from office staff to fitters was very helpful and polite, nothing was too much trouble for them. We have no hesitation in recommending them as we are so happy with the quality of the gates and the fitters.
We wanted a security gate at the front door and they did a terrific job for us. We are delighted with the design it is exactly what we wanted.
Work carried out successfully. We were kept informed of what they were doing and consulted during the time the work was carried out. The team on site were hard working and prompt.
Excellent, top quality gates, great guys, no mess 100% recommend.

Without any hesitation we would recommend The Gatemaker to anyone considering new gates.

Very pleased with the refurbished gate which was re-fitted yesterday. Good professional job, which has added security more to my home. Thank you for your help.
A great service from start to finish. Home visit to discuss our requirements and gain advice about what we would need. Samples are carried by Bernie who explained thoroughly the differences in gate quality. We were not pressured at all to buy on the day, the fitting was arranged after ordering over the phone the following week and the gates were fitted by two professional fitters the same week. Your competitors could learn so much from you. Very highly satisfied and would have no hesitation in recommending The Gate Maker.
Great service from everyone at The Gate Maker, the office staff, the sales guy who gave us the quote and the fitters who did a wonderful job. We had a bonus in that the installation of the gate and railings could be scheduled in a few days instead of a few weeks. We are very happy and would highly recommend this company.
Excellent service. Perfect installation.
Office staff very informative. Fitters very obliging and did an excellent job. Would recommend them.

I didn't initially look on Trusted Trader to find The Gate Maker, it was through word of mouth being local, but I was filled with confidence when I eventually did and true to their word, I received an outstanding service along with the long list of many other happy customers on here. They take pride in what they do, were extremely polite and efficient and the aftercare leaflet they provide was most helpful. Would recommend and definitely use them again. Thanks Bernie and team
Had a new set of gates made and the existing set re-furnished to use elsewhere at my home. Very pleased with the price for both. They look fantastic. The only issues were of my own making indecisive! and they came out twice to rectify with absolutely no problems. You really feel that they care if you are happy with their work and product. Great staff too who are professional, polite and clean up after themselves. Highly recommend them and would definitely use them again.
Excellent quality gate fitted by a team with an eye for detail - a pleasure to deal with.

Fair price. Good service. Polite workforce.
Brilliant service from start to finish. Friendly and polite staff. Did a great job fitting out gates. Took rubbish away and cleaned up after the work. Highly recommended.
The workers arrived on time. Left the site clean and tidy. A good job.
Project: More than 40m of balustrade and handrails for our raised decking, sloping walkway and steps, plus driveway gates. Excellent communication at all levels both within The Gatemaker business and with us resulted in railings etc which appropriately complement our property and location. The team discussed the work with us as it progressed and listened to our concerns modifying work to suit and correcting any misunderstandings. We wanted the work completed within a tight timescale but it couldn't start until our poorly managed builders had finished the decking. The Gatemaker came on the target Saturday morning to make sure sufficient progress was achieved and, despite having to correct a mistake, ended up with about an hour to spare. They finished off the total job completely the following week. Initial site visit and quote was 20 months before we were in a position to have the work carried out, but original price was still held. A couple of months later one of the gates dropped a little. Phoned office and was told no-one would be able to get out until the following week but 30 minutes later the boss was tapping on our front window - he had fixed the gate!
Very friendly and professional service. Good customer service. All work carried out was to an excellent standard. The job looks fantastic.
The designer came out to me within a couple of days and the gates were made and fitted a week later. They look fabulous really delighted with the quality and design.
Thank for coming out in the bad weather. Excellent job well done.
Very good firm, friendly workmen. Service was exceptional. Can't find a fault, would highly recommend them.
My elderly mum wanted high, lockable garden gates to make her garden more secure and so I found The Gate Maker company from the internet. They were quick to respond to my call and arranged for someone to come out to show us choice of gates and no obligation quote. We were happy with the gates and price and within a few days we were contacted to arrange fitting of them. The two fitters came on time on the day arranged and did a marvellous job. We couldn't fault them, they were very polite, efficient and trustworthy. The gates are top quality, at a reasonable price and we would highly recommend them.
We had professional and friendly service from everyone we dealt with. Helped us with ideas and design right through to the final product which we are delighted with. Only a small job for the Gate Maker maybe - but it made a big difference to us.
Great service, will use again. Fitter very polite.
We used these because of them being in the Derbyshire Magazine advertisement with the Trusted Trader recommendation. We are very impressed with the work and service we received from them.
From the initial enquiry we received the most efficient service at every level. We would recommend this company to anyone who required iron gates.
Reliable and efficient
Excellent service no job to small. Worked well as a team. Will recommend.
Great from start to finish. All staff I dealt with were very helpful, punctual & polite. Great garden gates that are of a very high standard at a competitive price.

Very efficient and amiable workers.
Polite, well mannered, job left tidy and everything put back as they found it. Excellent job.
Very efficient from quote to installation excellent product at a reasonable price and fitted by a very personable young man.
First class job!
The Gate Maker fitters not only made an excellent job of fitting my wrought iron gates, but they also left the site clean and tidy and took away my old wooden gates to dispose of.
From start to finish the whole company were polite - efficient. The young man who fitted the gates could not have been more helpful. I would recommend them to friends and family.
Good gate. Good service. Happy to recommend.
More excellent work done for us by the Gatemaker - a refurbished gate and panels. Friendly and professional staff did a great job in awful weather!
Work carried out promptly (June 2016) and efficiently. We would highly recommend them.
This is too soon after the work was done to give a really worthwhile assessment.
Excellent company to deal with. The fitters were very efficient. We were very pleased with the finished gates. Would recommend highly.
We originally contacted The Gatemaker to have a hand rail put down our sloping drive. Bernie visited, gave us a quote, and time scale. In the meantime, we decided instead to have railings put down the boundary of our driveway, so asked for a second quote. Rachel came to measure up, and give us a quote, she was great, very reassuring and talked us through what would happen. As we wanted the job completed as soon as possible, she assured us it would be done within 2 weeks. A week later, after a further visit from Bernie and Rachel to gauge the slope of our drive the railings were in place, looking great and giving us peace of mind. We can't praise The Gatemaker highly enough, from Bernie and Rachel, to Jamie who kept in contact with us, to Josh and Jake who put the railings in place for us. A big thank you to you all.
Excellent, friendly service from initial contact to completion of project. Customer satisfaction is of paramount importance to this company. I must certainly will employ them again.
From my first enquiry right through to completed installation The Gate Maker team from Jamie and Rachel in the office, Bernie who came out to take measurements and Jake and Josh who installed our gates. I found total satisfaction and reassurance that I was dealing with a good old fashioned thoroughly professional team! Great service. Thank you.
Excellent service in good time. Cleaned up and took the rubbish away when complete. Excellent company.
First rate company to deal with. Promises were kept with the job finished on time as per agreed price. Excellent quality fitted gate with first rate welding. Polite and courteous team. Would happily deal with the company again.
Very prompt service. Very efficient. Excellent product. Staff friendly.

Absolute must for all wrought iron gates. Came out and measured, gave quote at same time. Quick and easy to order, very fast delivery and installation - brilliant, quality gates. I would not hesitate to have this company again, very reliable and super efficient.
Good job. Cannot praise the two lads enough, 5 star.
This company were first rate from initial contact to final fitting of gates in just 2 weeks start to finish. Gates were fitted in torrential rain by 2 lovely guys who worked quickly and diligently. The work was absolutely first class, the gates were incredible.
Very good company to do business with, fair price, professional. Would recommend.
Outstanding service. Measurements taken Saturday pm and gates fitted Thursday pm following week! 4 days from initial survey.
After phoning this company on the Tuesday 16/5/17 Bernie arrived this morning 17/5 as promised to look at repairs needed on 2 heavy wrought iron gates on my main driveway. Bernie was clear and professional explaining everything in detail, nothing was too much trouble. Whilst here I mentioned that the other gates we have had 'dropped' and and were very difficult to open/close. Bernie adjusted the heavy gates straight away whilst chatting about the other work I needed doing. I never expected this and am so grateful I can now use these gates without any difficulty at all - and no charge! I can not stress strongly enough how pleased I am at having found a company so thoughtful, professional and caring. I'm looking forward with confidence now to having my other set of gates repaired. Very reasonable prices.
The men who came to fit our gate were extremely polite and friendly. The work was completed quickly and professionally and looks great. Will use again if needed and would definitely recommend.
The two lads who fitted new gate did a very good job and very polite. Gave us an insight of all they did, we are very satisfied.
I found the entire experience of dealing with Bernie and his team hassle free, as a business owner myself I am very aware of the need to offer a professional service throughout the entire purchasing process, starting with the quote through to the installation and thereafter payment, even after I had paid Bernie and asked him to change something for me he did it quickly and without any questions.
Excellent customer service. Very courteous skilled workmen and punctual a pleasure to have on our premises. The results on completed showed the greatest attention to quality and details design. All debris was removed and the area swept and hosed down. A very professional company!
