Driveway Automated Electric Gate Installation Service & Repair in Murrieta — with a Smile


Automated Gate Services, Inc., has been taking charge of driveway automated electric gate installation service & repair in Murrieta and other southern California locations. In past weeks we’ve booked electric gate installations, focused on the importance of using quality parts, and installing all gates of every sort to meet or exceed UL regulations. But there is one thing we have not talked about – or at least not directly – and that is the importance of customer courtesy.

Our field operators, our receptionists, the people who answer the phones, all our team understand the importance of customer courtesy. We know this from the feedback that comes to us from our customers, not just because supervisors report it or because we’ve held a professional development training session named “customer courtesy.” For example, one customer praised one of our technicians who carefully talked him through resetting his electric gate after he “scrambled its brains.” It was an after-hours emergency call. Animals were involved and there were security concerns. An apartment manager reported that the technician from Automated Gate Services was called when their gate was stuck open on a New Year’s Eve. She was impressed with the technician’s cheerfulness, and his willingness to help – of course, getting the problem solved in five minutes didn’t hurt, either. We’ve even had positive feed back from a city police department for our assistance.

Call Automated Gate Services at (888) 428-3711 for help with your driveway automated electric gate installation service & repair in Murrieta. We use electric gate parts from companies that are industry leaders in their field. Our technicians are licensed and certified to deal with a variety of automated gate situations. For 38 years we have taken great pride in providing efficient and quality services to our customers, that partnered with our passion about customer courtesy has enabled us to be recognized as a leader in the gate automation industry. We have an amazing team of men and woman that beam positive attitudes, excellent workmanship and a love for our industry and customers. We are thankful and proud of our dedicated and passionate team members and want to acknowledge how much we appreciate each and every one of them.

Drew Brees Donates Prosthetic Leg After High School QB Loses Limb to Freak Injury

We would like to share an update with you on Alex Ruiz’s journey. The following is an article from The Washington Post:

By Jacob Bogage May 17th – Washington Post

At night, DeChon Burns sometimes lies awake thinking about that ankle and that knee and what kind of God could ravage two young men so absolutely and heal them both so wondrously.

There’s his son, lying on the 40-yard line years ago with a broken ankle that nearly shattered his chance to play college football. It was over, his son told him, as his toes somehow touched his calf. But after surgery and years of rehab, the joint healed. He’s still playing college football today.

There’s Alex Ruiz, the quarterback at Linfield Christian School in Southern California, where Burns coaches, on his back at the 35-yard line Oct. 6, 2017. His knee bent at a 90-degree angle the wrong way. He couldn’t feel his right foot.

“I’m never playing again,” Ruiz told Burns, who tried to wedge his body between Ruiz’s leg and his eye line.

“No, no, no, don’t say that,” Burns said. “We don’t know that. We’ve seen worse.”

Ruiz, a junior, kept the ball on a running play and was stacked up by defenders at the line of scrimmage. He right foot stuck in the ground as he tried to wriggle out of a tackle, and the weight on his back popped the joint out of its socket, then ruptured an artery that circulated blood to his foot.

A month later, he had the limb amputated below the knee.

And now Ruiz is again his jovial self and a big man on campus at Linfield. He’s part of the Lions’ coaching staff while he undergoes further treatment. A local car dealership donated a brand new GMC Terrain, which he learned to drive left-footed.

A pair of Division III colleges offered him financial aid packages to join the team as a student coach, if he can’t play, or suit up at quarterback, if he learns to play with a prosthesis.

And about that: The Challenged Athletes Foundation donated his walking prosthesis. Drew Brees, the quarterback Ruiz has modeled his game after for years, presented him with the new leg May 11. As for his athletic prosthesis, Brees will pick up the tab for that, he said.

“God is all over this,” Burns says now. “You see that something is meant here. This isn’t happenstance. There’s a bigger reason.”

Alex Ruiz drops back to pass during his junior season at Linfield Christian School in Temecula, Calif.

And yet Burns, who played at Southern California and was part of Steve Spurrier’s coaching staff with the Washington Redskins, cries when considering the enormity of the incident, when thinking about a 16-year-old making the decision to sever his own limb in pursuit of a normal life.

Doctors told Ruiz, if he kept the limb, that he would spend the rest of his life walking with the help of a boot and crutches. He would never be able to run or play sports again. He likely wouldn’t regain feeling beyond his knee.

The resident surgeon told him while he was playing “Call of Duty” in his hospital bed. He turned the game off, put headphones on and bawled.

“They said it was my decision,” he remembers. “The doctors weren’t going to make it for me. My parents weren’t going to make it for me. I had to decide for myself.”

A week later, his friends visited over the weekend, and he told them he had made up his mind. The leg would go.

“I decided,” he announced, “this is how I wanted to do life.”

“We sat there and cried and held hands,” he says now. “They made me realize, me without a leg, I’m still me.”

“When we spoke,” Burns said, “and he told me about his decision, he had to pull me through it, honestly. I bawled like a baby, and he just stopped me. And he said: ‘Coach, I need you to stop. It’s my decision. It’s something I want to do. I want to be able to play with my kids and run and do all that, and if I don’t get this done, I won’t. And don’t treat me differently.’ ”

Burns tries not to, but it’s hard. He has been around the game long enough to see a lot of injuries. His playing career ended in college with a neck injury. And he watched his son go through rehab and get on with his life.

The pair spoke at a community leadership breakfast recently about the ordeal. Ruiz went first and announced, unexpectedly, that if a future reconstructive knee surgery went well, he would try to play his senior season with the prosthesis.

“I had to step into the other room and gather myself,” Burns said. “I think it’s the totality — there was a limb that was removed. That changes things, whether you want to agree with it or not. That changes things. He’s 16 [now 17] years old. He won’t be able to run his feet in the sand or shower the same way or clip his toenails.”

And even though seemingly everything after the injury has gone right — the surgeries have been successful; Ruiz has formed a friendship with NFL tight end Zach Miller, who suffered a similar injury but without amputation; donations, including Brees’s, have poured in — Burns still sometimes stares into space and wonders why it all happened, and why he didn’t stop it.

“I don’t sleep well,” he said, “because I feel responsibility. It happened on my watch. I was the head coach.”

For a while, Ruiz was similarly distraught. What if he had handed the ball off? What if he had just gone down on the first hit?

“You can’t beat yourself up on it,” Burns told him. “Only him and God know how it happened on that play.”

Automated Gate Systems in Apple Valley

Automated Gate Systems in Apple Valley

Automated Gate Services, Inc., has the team, supplies and equipment to manage your automated gate systems in Apple Valley. A professionally installed and maintained gated entry or access control system can help improve security and safety, streamline processes and workflow, and also help control the flow of vehicle or pedestrian traffic. Our team has a wealth of knowledge and skill that includes gate installers, electricians, locksmiths and more, and our quality workmanship has allowed us to serve the needs of the most particular client, including maximum-security locations.

Maximum-security locations typically require custom solutions. The process of installing an automated gate system for these customers includes beginning the design process with detailed input from the client so we can deeply understand their needs and any limitations or parameters they are working with, such as security requirements. A site visit will then allow our design and installation teams to help plan out the automated entry based on the physical space and organizational requirements. Depending on the needs of the customer, we may recommend heavy gate systems that can close rapidly at 4 feet per second, or a stacking gate configuration that is smooth and reliable – both gates would fill a unique need of the client, and our team can help to make recommendations based on client input. Maximum-security locations might include government facilities, nuclear power plants, or military bases. No matter the unique need, we are able to offer solutions.

We use only the best UL rated materials and components when installing or working on your remote gates, and each maximum-security gate system is monitored by a professional management team, which oversees the flow of the project and the quality of workmanship applied.
