We love our cars. We spare no expense when it comes to our car. There is always a new way to customize it and the prospect of having a new one is even more exciting. We take care of our cars like crazy because we know that even a single tiny scratch could ruin it. But have you ever though that you would need a help from an electrician to take a look your car?
I haven’t thought much about it until the day came when I couldn’t open my garage door. Of all days it can happen, it happened on my first day in my new job here in Atlanta. I have set an allowance for traffic and a stop at my favorite café but I never anticipated my garage door will conk on me on this momentous day.
I have tried all the tricks and hacks I found on the internet but nothing worked. Actually, I just gave up on it after seeing how complicated it looks. I don’t have the time to drill, saw and pick locks on my first day at work.
Sweaty and desperate, I took the bus to office that day. Nice! I just laughed at the thought of having a fine looking car but there I was riding the bus to work. I also couldn’t stop thinking about the garage. I never really paid attention to it.
I went home after office and went straight to the garage. I tried to figure out why the garage door would not budge. Everything looked alright until I remember to check the power source. I plugged the car door opener to another outlet and tried if the car opener will work. I was surprised that it worked. The garage door smoothly opened as if there was nothing wrong with it this morning.
Problem solved, right? Not! I was still bothered why the original outlet was no longer working. I looked at it but I am afraid to keep going because I might cause more harm to the house. Worse, electrocute myself. I decided to just seek the help of a professional residential electrician for electrical repair. There were several electrician services here in Atlanta so it was easy to find one.
The residential electrician came to our house in Atlanta the following day to fix the busted outlet. I did not bother to ask what went wrong because I was more eager to know about their garage installation and repair services. I want to keep the information handy just in case something like this happens again.
Everything in my humble garage is back to normal. But now, I take care of it as much as I take care of my ride. I am even considering getting a new car garage next spring.
