Tucson Garage Door Repair Company Hires New Lead Technician

  • October 28, 2019

Tucson, AZ based John’s Garage Door Repair is extremely pleased to announce the addition of a new member to their team of expert garage door technicians serving the Tucson area: Will Lopez. Bringing a deep well of expertise backed up by a wealth of experience that spans more than 10 years in the field, Lopez states that he looks forward to delivering true value to the customer rather than racing to get the most appointments done in a day.

John's Garage Doors hires new lead repair technician Will LopezAccording to John Mucciacciaro, owner of John’s Garage Door Repair in Tucson, Lopez has worked with a number of companies in both Arizona and Texas over the course of his career, repairing garage doors and ensuring his customers were never left without help for too long. This experience includes some of the larger garage door companies in the region as well. However, Mucciacciaro explains that Lopez ultimately decided to join John’s Garage Doors because his desire to put his best foot forward for his customers outweighed the quota he was expected to fulfill at some of his previous posts.

“Larger companies tend to lose their personal touch as they grow and expand,” notes Mucciacciaro. “The more customers you force your company to take on, the less time you have for each individual that calls on you for help. The whole process becomes sterilized of any human-to-human relationship, and that’s just not how we do things here.” He explains that John’s Garage Doors believes strongly in the principle of delivering quality over quantity. This attitude towards their work and the personalized dedication they show their customers is reportedly what brought the company to Lopez’s attention.

Mucciacciaro explains, “When our customers call on our services, they expect a better customer service experience than they would get if we were to simply show up, fix a specific issue in their garage door, and leave. When we arrive, we like to find out as much about the door and its general usage as possible. This gives us a better idea of the source of its problems and allows us to offer the homeowner advice on maintaining its proper function in the future.”

Most notably, the company does not leave until the job is done to both the customer’s satisfaction as well as their own. “When we receive a call from a new customer who is experiencing trouble with their garage door, they generally tell us what the immediate issue is and expect that alone to be fixed. Often, they will engage our services because they found our quotes agreeable or were simply pushed for time. However, the secret to our continued success is that our customers tend to become strong referral sources after they get a taste of what we have to offer. Our professional technicians are highly trained in their craft, yes, but they are also highly personable and easy to work with.”

This commitment to their customers and the repair experience as a whole is also highlighted in their customer reviews. For instance, Steve L. left a 5-Star review on Yelp that says, “I highly recommend John. He listened to me, offered some good advice and options without being the least bit pushy and then got the job done at a fair price very quickly. A month later, I am still very pleased with the result. Plus, he is an engaging guy, the type you wouldn’t mind sharing a coffee or beer with. I had a good basis for comparison, as he was the third person/company to look at the door… Don’t bother with the other two guys, just call John.”

Those who would like to learn more about the company’s rates, refer to their service coverage, and make other inquiries are invited to contact John Mucciacciaro of John’s Garage Doors. More information can also be found on their website, and interested parties may connect with the company through their social media platforms to stay up to date with their latest news and announcements.

Customer Patty Evans says, “John answered my call himself, arrived right on time, and was very knowledgeable. He was honest and didn’t try to sell me more than what I needed. Charged a very fair price. I will certainly call him again if I need work done on my garage door.”

As a rule, Mucciacciaro makes it a priority to maintain an excellent standard of customer service. As a result, he can often be found responding to his customers’ feedback and inquiries himself. Answering Evan’s review, he says, “Thank you for the opportunity to help you, Patty. And thank you for taking the time to share your experience here publicly. Being the guy that answers the phone, schedules the jobs, and does the work, having great comments from great customers like you really helps me keep going. Thanks again!”

John’s Garage Doors received a similarly glowing review from Brett Steele, who says, “I called John on a Saturday morning (after I couldn’t find anyone else open or available within the next few days). He picked up immediately and told me he could be there within the next hour or so. He called when he was on his way. He looked at the motor for all of five seconds, gave me my options, and had it fixed in 15 minutes. John is the real deal.” In response, Mucciacciaro says, “Thanks for sharing your experience, Brett, and thanks for the kind words too! I can’t always get to my customers that fast (it depends where in Tucson I’m working at the time), but I always do my best to get there as quickly as I can. I’m glad I was able to help you with you garage door.”

It is worth noting that both of these reviews gave Mucciacciaro’s company a full 5-Star review score. In addition to this, the company boasts an aggregate Google review score of 4.9 Stars, spanning more than 50 individual reviews. Notably, they also hold a perfect 5/5 Star score on Yelp. Customers frequently praise the company for their ability to recommend a variety of approachable options for garage door repairs, complete projects and repairs in a timely manner, and even stay within budget.

Mucciacciaro states, “John’s Garage Door Repair in Tucson takes a great deal of professional pride delivering our garage door services with integrity, affordability, and professionalism. Aside from Tucson, we also make ourselves available to customers in the Oro Valley and Marana areas. If you live in any of these locations and find yourself with garage door trouble, feel free to call us at once. We’ll be there as soon as we can, and you can rely on us to provide quick and affordable solutions.”

He also points out that garage door maintenance should not be handled without the help of a professional. Despite their status as an everyday part of life for many homes, garage doors can be quite dangerous if mishandled. “At the lower end of the scale, you might only succeed in breaking the mechanism further and requiring a more costly repair. However, your garage door has dozens of moving parts and can easily weigh over 400 pounds. That kind of weight can cause serious injury in the event of an accident. It’s best to leave the job to a professional.” They direct curious DIY-ers to the following article that specifically addresses helping people understand some of the intricacies of Tucson garage door repairs. The company is equipped to address problems in a wide range of garage doors, and takes the added measure of stocking spare parts on the truck that answers each customer’s call—enabling them to offer same-day repair in many situations.

Old Fashioned Service from John’s Garage Door Repair Tucson

  • June 14, 2019

John’s Garage Doors, based in Tucson, Arizona, has announced with pride that they have received yet another five star review. On their Google Maps page, Eric S. expressed his deep appreciation for the service that John Mucciacciaro, the owner of the company, had provided them. Eric is the friend of an elderly homeowner who was told by another company that his garage door was “un-fixable” and that he would have to get a new garage door. To their surprise, John told them that he could fix it and he did, for a fraction of the price of a new door.

John Mucciacciaro himself says, “It was really an honor to help people like Eric and the elderly homeowner and I sincerely appreciate their kind words and their taking the time to provide our company with a five star review. I do try hard, and kind folks like Eric who appreciate it and share their experiences with others is what keeps me and my business going.”

Garage Door Repair Tucson John gets another stellar reviewIn his review, Eric S. said, “John’s Garage Doors is a throwback to a bygone era, where people were honest and took pride in their work. An understanding that life is more than the pursuit of the all-mighty-buck is a refreshing attribute that is increasingly hard to find. Our friend, who is older, miscalculated the height of his opening door, and made a few unplanned “adjustments” to his garage door. Several other garage door folks came out and declared it a total loss, quoting him more than he could afford. We looked for the cheapest solution to the replacement, but it was still more than he could really afford. By absolute coincidence or divine intervention, John’s Doors got involved and resolved the situation. What a wonderful man! I only wish that all businesses operated under the principles that John’s Doors obviously hold dear. Bless you Sir, you now have three new customers.”

John explains that his overhead is relatively low and he doesn’t have to pay commissions to sales people. That is why he is able to offer substantially lower prices compared to those offered by large companies. He is capable of doing various kinds of repair work. These include garage door spring replacement, complete door rebuild, track repair or replacement, garage door opener installation, routine maintenance, roller repair or replacement, door rebalancing, and fixing of noisy doors.

One of the key services provided by John’s Garage Doors is garage door spring repair. John points out that a broken garage door spring should not be ignored but instead should be fixed as soon as possible. Customers are often curious as to whether they can do the fixing of the broken garage door spring themselves but John warns that it would not be a good idea. This is because it can be very dangerous for a person who is not experienced and knowledgeable about the safe handling of the spring. Garage door springs are usually under extreme tension and can cause severe injury.

Another part of a garage door that often fails is the garage door opener. John points out that while most people believe that they will need to buy a replacement for the automatic door opener once it stops working normally, sometimes the opener isn’t the actual problem. He is committed to informing customers about their options when a door isn’t opening or closing properly and will never push a new opener if the actual problem is something simpler and less costly like new rollers or some basic door maintenance.

John has been repairing garage doors for more than 25 years around the country, but has chosen to settle here, offering Tucson and surrounding areas his services for nearly a decade. His company can also perform the installation of new garage door openers and is capable of handling all types of residential garage doors. However, they specialize in repairing garage doors and can fix most problems. Their immediate service areas are Oro Valley, Saddlebrooke, and Marana but also help customers throughout the Tucson area..

Those who are interested in garage door repair or new garage door opener installation in Tucson and nearby areas may want to visit their website or call John directly on the phone.

The Heat is On!

  • June 14, 2019

No doubt, the summer heat is here… and soon it’ll be time for our famous Tucson monsoons!

Don’t get stuck outside your house due to a broken garage door spring!  If you haven’t had new garage door springs installed in the past 10 years, there’s a decent chance they’re ready to break.  It could be tomorrow, it could be a few years away… but it WILL happen.  And when it does, it always seems to happen at the most inconvenient time.

Let John have a look at your door, install a new spring (or springs, if necessary), and rest assured that you won’t have the misfortune of being stuck outside in one of these downpours!

Garage Door Repair Service in Oro Valley AZ Receives Five Star Review

  • September 23, 2018

John’s Garage Doors, a garage door repair company serving Oro Valley, Marana and Tucson, AZ has announced they have received a 5 star review on Google Maps.  The company has been serving the greater Tucson area for over seven years, but recently focused on updating its Google Maps page so that customers could more easily determine the areas they service.  They noted that they are pleased to have another venue where customers can publicly share their experiences.

In the most recent 5 star review, customer Vicky DiNicola said, “I was overwhelmed with the responsiveness of this team…  Not only were they here on time but they gave us very reasonable prices and rebuilt our entire assembly…Very professional and reasonable prices. Can’t say enough about their responsiveness and professionalism. Highly recommend this company for any and all garage door problems.”  

In response to the favorable review, the company responded publicly by saying, “Thank you so much Vicky, we really appreciate your kind words and the fact that you took the time to write them.

John - Owner of John's Garage DoorsMucciacciaro explained that he understands the stress caused by a malfunctioning garage door.  It’s the kind of problem that can cause someone to have their cars stuck inside the garage, unable to go about their daily business.  Or, when a door won’t close properly, it can mean that the contents of the garage, and maybe even the home itself, are at risk. No matter what the situation is, he wants to put people’s minds at ease that he can help them get things working again, and it won’t cost them a small fortune.

What’s Hot – Tucson Garage Doors in June

  • June 11, 2017

It’s been a little while since we published anything here, but only because we’ve been busy out helping our friends and neighbors around Tucson, Marana and Oro Valley with their garage doors!

The summer is certainly kicking in, and this upcoming week we’ll be feeling it for sure with temperatures expected to get well over 100 degrees. I’ve even heard some predictions of around 110 by the end of the week!… No matter what the thermostat says, I hope you’re all managing to stay cool and hydrated. And don’t forget to make sure your pets have extra water too! This is the time of year I dread hearing about pets who needlessly suffer from exposure to the heat. Please, take care of them.

Off my soapbox now, and on to share bits and pieces of news from right around the Old Pueblo that I’ve had great discussions about with recent customers. I figured I might as well share some of them here, too.

This first story is one that I hope gets the recognition it deserves, completely apart from any politics. Politics has no part in this story – it’s about a hard working, intelligent person committed to her community who was the victim of senseless violence. Whether you agree or disagree with her political beliefs, or those of the people mentioned in this article, has no bearing on the sacrifice she made or the respect she deserves. I hope you agree with me on that point.

Navy Ship Named For Gun Violence Survivor Gabrielle Giffords Commissioned

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/gabrielle-giffords-navy-ship_us_593c2c38e4b024026879e6f0The U.S. Navy on Saturday commissioned a warship named for former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), making it the third Navy ship ever to be named after a living woman.

Giffords resigned her House seat in 2012 after surviving an assassination attempt at a grocery story in Tucson, Arizona. Then-Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus contacted Giffords that day to tell her that a warship would be named in her honor. The 418-foot littoral combat ship was built in Mobile, Alabama, and christened by Dr. Jill Biden in 2015.

“Indeed throughout the world, and throughout America, there isn’t a name more universally loved, more admired, more respected than the name of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords,” Pelosi said.

“It’s designed to be agile, quick to adapt, able to swiftly maneuver in the roughest of waters,” Clinton said of the ship. “Every moment of every day that the sailors who man this ship are given the great privilege of defending our country, they only have to look toward this ship’s namesake.”

Giffords called the commissioning “an incredible honor,” and thanked members of the military for their service.

“The U.S.S. Gabrielle Giffords is strong and tough, just like her crew,” she said. “I thought of you in my darkest days. We ask so much of you. Despite danger, you say yes. You make me proud, you make America proud. I will never forget this day or the crew of the U.S.S. Gabrielle Giffords.” Read more…

And in Marana, we saw more news about the good folks that help protect and defend us on a daily basis.

Town of Marana broke ground on a new police HQ

MARANA, Ariz.(KGUN9-TV) – After three years of waiting, Marana Police are getting a new police headquarters.

The Town of Marana broke ground on the new building Wednesday morning, according to a press release from Marana Communications Manager.

The push for a new police headquarters began in 2014. Marana Police Chief Terry Rozema told Town Manager Gilbert Davidson that the investment into a new police headquarters “isn’t about constructing a new building. This is about serving our town”.

The Council decided that the public wholeheartedly supported the project. Town staff didn’t receive a single complaint from the public.  Construction is expected to be complete by summer 2018.

And in Oro Valley we have a new town manager to welcome into the fold!

Oro Valley hires new town manager

http://www.tucsonlocalmedia.com/news/article_432aa80a-4ad9-11e7-b175-7bc8c6047dbb.htmlThe Oro Valley Town Council hired a new town manager Tuesday, May 30.

Mary Jacobs, who is now working as an assistant city manager in Sierra Vista, will start her new job Sept. 5.

The decision to hire Jacobs, which received unanimous support from council, comes nearly one year after former town manager Greg Caton returned to his native Colorado. Since last June Oro Valley Police Department Chief of Police Daniel Sharp has served as interim town manager.

Jacobs has worked as Sierra Vista’s first assistant city manager for nearly two decades. Jacobs said she did not apply for the position during its initial search primarily because her daughter was still in high school. The town opened the position to a second search with CPS-HR Consulting and, with her daughter heading off to college in Chicago, Jacobs said she knew the time was right for a change.

“Tucson has always been my home,” she said. “Don’t get me wrong, I love Sierra Vista and it will always have a special place in my heart. Now I’m back in the Tucson metro area and I have a lot of knowledge about Arizona, the Tucson economy and connections within the state because of my long tenure. I just felt that it would be a good fit, and that I could really bring a lot to the town of Oro Valley.” Via tucsonlocalmedia.com

So yeah, lots of stuff going on around the Tucson area on top of all the garage door repairs that have been keeping me hopping like a frog on hot asphalt.  But remember, I’m never too busy to take your call when you have problems with your garage door.  John’s Garage Doors is here to help you!  (520) 989-0381

Oro Valley April News from John’s Garage Doors

  • April 18, 2017

This is the kind of thing that really makes me angry.  I know I’m not alone – anyone that hears about, much less comes into contact with low-life scam artists like this will naturally get angry.  But because it’s a “home services” type of offering like the garage door services I offer here in Oro Valley that this bonehead used, I feel particularly offended.

One arrested in connection with Oro Valley landscaping scam

Authorities have made an arrest in a landscaping scam Tucson News Now first told you about earlier this month.

As we reported on Thursday, April 6, the OVPD had been investigating reports of a scam from the Copper Creek neighborhood near Tangerine and La Canada, as well as several more in Pima County.

Lt. Curtiss Hick said the OVPD received reports of a man going door to door offering to do yard work for an upfront price.

Stephen Williams, one of the victims in the scam, said he paid the suspect $200 to clean up weeds but the man took the money and left before finishing the job.

Susann Miller with the Better Business Bureau of Southern Arizona said home improvement scams were the number one scam in 2016. She said homeowners should get additional quotes on yard work and get it in writing.

Clearly others have suffered worse than me, such as Stephen Williams mentioned in the article who is out $200.  But still, when guys like me work our butts off doing good, honest work and offering a fair price, then some joker like this puts a big dose of extra heavy skepticism in our good communities… it’s just frustrating!  Dude – just do the work you’re getting paid for, earn an honest dollar and everyone will be better off!  And we won’t need to tax our legal system, which will hopefully work well and make you pay your price for these actions to our neighbors.

Speaking of the legal system and the police department, we had some sad news the other day.  While I didn’t know Mr. Wolff personally, I did hear from some people who have been in Oro Valley longer than me who had nothing but good things to say about the man.  You served honorably, Mr. Wolff.  You’ll be missed.

He was 87 years old.

Wolff was hired as the police chief in January 1983 after serving 21 years with the Tucson Police Department, including 15 years in narcotics, according to Star archives.

When he joined, the Oro Valley department had four patrol officers and no investigators. It was headquartered in a former four-bedroom house at 680 W. Calle Concordia.

Wolff retired from the department that year and was elected to the Oro Valley Town Council in May of 2000, where he served until 2004.

He was vice mayor on the council from 2003 to 2004.
