ARCOLA - Justin Carrier was employed by Eagle Oilfield Services Ltd., and they found it difficult to find a company that installed commercial overhead garage doors for the oilfield business, so Carrier began to do the installations for them, as he had a construction background.
In August 2020, they began their overhead garage door business through Eagle Oilfield Services, but they felt it was time to become their own entity and they did this in July 2021 with Eagle Overhead Door.
Carrier, his wife Alayna and their 18-month-old son Thomas live in Arcola, and also run the business from Arcola, having a large shop south of town.
Carrier and his business partner Mickey Grimes, who is a long-time resident of Arcola, have four employees. They have two fully-serviced trucks and two scissor lifts to get the job done.
Their main supplier for the overhead doors, whether they be commercial or residential, is C.H.I. Sectional Overhead Doors.
According to Carrier, the garage doors are of high quality and easily manage the day-to-day operations. They use heavy-duty hardware, are well insulated and the seals are top notch. Once ordered, the door usually takes six weeks to arrive.
Carrier’s company offers horizontal and vertical garage doors that come in every colour, and windows are also an option. Garage door openers are another item they install with the door.
Carrier said they offer quick and efficient service and are willing to travel for the job, having done work throughout southeast Saskatchewan and into Manitoba.
A service they provide is called the golden Eagle Maintenance Program.
This is a three-year program that customers may sign up for. Carrier’s crews would come out once or twice a year and do a detailed inspection on the garage door. During the inspection, the door would be lubricated or greased. If any repairs would need to be done, the customer would get a detailed report and repairs done as quickly as possible. This would depend if parts were needed or ordered.
The work would also be done at a 10 per cent discount, providing the door was purchased and installed by Eagle Overhead Door.
Each customer will have a file at the shop with all the aspects of the door that was installed. This way if a client calls in, they will know which door was installed for them and which parts are needed.
“We offer quality service and stand behind the product that we sell,” he said.
