15:00 Hours - Next Day Delivery Cut-Off Time

We have a 15:00 hours cut-off for next day orders. We will endeavour to ensure that orders received before the cut-off are dispatched that day, any orders received after the cut-off will be despatched the next working day. Occasionally we may need to have an item sent direct from the manufacturer/supplier. This may affect the delivery times, if this is the case, you will be notified and given an estimated time scale for delivery.

If you live outside the UK or Eire then telephone or email our sales team to find out delivery charges to your address.

We endeavour to ensure that your order arrives within two working days of despatch and many arrive the next working day, (Eire, N. Ireland, Highlands and offshore destinations may take a little longer).

  • We do not deliver on public holidays
  • We do not deliver on Sundays
  • We only deliver on Saturdays by special arrangement (available at extra cost - see above)
  • As our deliveries are sub-contracted to third parties, we are unable to specify a delivery time.

However, we are able to offer the following services at an additional cost: Weekday next day delivery; Weekday pre-midday delivery; Saturday pre-midday delivery.

PLEASE NOTE: due to the high value of our goods, our carriers are instructed to obtain a signature of receipt, therefore someone should be at your delivery address to receive the goods.

Normally, our deliveries are made by APC and a signature is always required. If there is nobody available to receive the delivery at your stated delivery address, the courier company will usually leave a card for you to organise your own collection from your local depot.

If you require redelivery due to no-one being there, then each re-delivery must be paid for in advance; the cost of each redelivery will be a minimum of £9.95 + VAT, or 50% of our normal (non-promotional) delivery charge + VAT - whichever is the greater. Strict enforcement of this delivery policy helps keep our delivery charges to a minimum for GateMotors customers.

Please refer to our terms and conditions of sale before finalising your purchase.

Gate Automation

Please select what type of automation you require for your gate/s. Double & Single Swing refer to motors which attach to the gate and pillar of a swing motion gate. Double & Single Underground refer to motors which lay beneath the ground which attach to the hinge end of swing motion gates. Choose Sliding if you require lateral moving gate automation and Wheeled if you require a motor which utilises a wheeled motor to drive your gate/s.

Motor Voltage

There are two types of power outputs to consider - 24v & 230v. If you need a higher number of operations (opened/closed more than 5-6 times in an hour) during peak periods such as the morning and evening, then you may wish to consider a 24v system.

24v systems are more suitable for higher operation levels as they tend to run cooler than 230v gate motors. However, they do cost more in relative terms, so if you only need to open or close the gate 1-5 times an hour then a 230v system might prove more cost-efficient.

24v motors tend to be used on commercial premises, whereas 230v tend to be used on standard domestic properties. The exception to this rule is sliding gate motors where the reverse is true - 24v sliding gate automation systems tend to be for domestic use, 230v for more intense use (commercial/communal).

24v systems can draw power from battery backup systems meaning they can still operate during any mains power cut (a 230v or 3 phase system would need to be opened with a manual release key).

24v systems can also utilise solar power units as a means of charging batteries, allowing you to site gate automation in rural and remote locations where mains power is unavailable.

Specifications can be found for each product from their datasheet. Each datasheet is downloadable from each product page on this website.

Weight of Gate

All electric gate motors operate up to a maximum weight. This is so the gate will operate in a reliable and safe manner. It is essential to know the weight of each gate leaf in order to choose the correct motor for you installation. If you do not know the weight of your gate/s, send us a photo along with the gate/s dimensions and we can advise.

Gate Width

As with weight, gate motors are designed for gates within certain dimensions. The most important dimension is the width of the gate. To ensure you select the right motor to operate your gate you must know the width of each gate that requires automation.

Opening Angle

Each motor has a maximum angle to which it can operate to. Therefore it is important to note how far the gate needs to open in order for a vehicle to enter/exit safely.

Daily Use

The amount of times your gate is used per day is a determining factor when deciding on the right motor for your usage. Motors are designed to operate within a certain capacity (operations per day) so choosing a motor compatible with your desired use is essential for its durability. Select from the options below the number of times (open & closure = 1 x operation) the gate/s will be operated on an average day.
