With very little money in his pocket and after recently completing a carpentry apprenticeship, Shane O’Sullivan moved to the Central Coast where he rented a house at Long Jetty and at the age of 21 years old, Shane ventured into his own business where he initially started buying, selling & installing second hand garage doors.

Soon after with the continual introduction of the bigger & brighter Holden utes. Shane’s business grew fast, all by reputation, remembering this was way before the internet, Facebook & other social media portals, even mobile phones (or bricks as they were called) hadn’t been out long! Shane’s business, Affordable Openings, grew purely from “word of mouth” and this was driven by quality, service and price – Nothing else!

30 years later Affordable Openings are one of the Central Coast’s largest and longest standing Garage Door and Gate Specialists. Based out of our factory, office & showroom in the Tuggerah Business Park, we pride ourselves on our 30 year local experience in supporting & servicing all parts of the Central Coast, Newcastle and Lake Macquarie areas.

We truly appreciate and understand the importance of a business partnership & we take great pride in our long term and exclusive supplier arrangements with industry leaders such as the Chamberlain Group (Merlin), B&D & Gliderol Garage Doors.

We are continually growing and so are our fleet of vehicles and team. Shane’s entire family works for the business, with Lisa heading up the Finance & Compliance, Haydon as a senior technician & Erin in administration.

“It is our aim to exceed our customers’ expectations with honest and dependable service provided by our entire team.”
