Automated Electric Gates

Automatic or Electric Gates add convenience and security to the home, however making sure you have the right system installed with a company who will supply servicing and repair is often overlooked. At HFS Gates & Automation we provide installation, repair and routine servicing for our customers.

Existing Gate Problems

Our customer base is made up of those we have designed, made and installed fully automated gate systems for and those who have called us with a gate problem. We take on the repair and servicing of the majority of Automation Systems on existing gates, where the owners no longer have contact with the original installers or have lost confidence in the original installers.

Servicing Automatic Gates

The servicing of your automatic gate system is essential and should be carried out ideally once a year, remembering that they are being opened and closed on a very frequent basis. The heavier the gate, the more work the motors and/or parts are subjected to.

Systems can be kept to optimum condition with a yearly maintenance visit where as gate systems that are left untouched and simply worked day after day will wear and reach the end of their operational life much quicker, often resulting in a complete reinstallation of the automation system. We know this, as we have many customers for whom we’ve had to replace their systems who now are happy to receive a maintenance visit once a year to ensure a longer operational life.

Hampshire Fencing, will always stay in my contacts for any future work or for any one I may know who need's works in the future. I had a number of companies look at my requirements for gates and fencing and I must say the work and the price was great. All the gates had been hand crafted by Hampshire fencing to what I wanted,, which in turn means that the costs had not been over priced to cover a trade to retail cost. Mark, Nathan, and Brian completed the Job to a great finish, and let's not forget Tracy in the office for always being available for any Questions i needed answered before and while the job was being completed. I am very pleased with the finished job, The best contractor I have ever used and I really would recommend to anyone to Use , Thank you Hampshire Fencing. I will always keep your number to hand.

We had Hampshire Fencing recommended to us and have now used them for multiple jobs as they have done a quality job every time. We've used them for a very large fencing project, building new vegetable raised beds and ground works for a summerhouse and greenhouse. Pricing is fair, attention to detail is very good and the guys often go above and beyond to get the job done. No hesitation in recommending them.

HFS installed 3 gate posts, a pair of 5 bar electric gates and a single pedestrian gate. Mark is obviously a craftsman and everything was installed with a great attention to detail such as ensuring that the electric mechanisms were not visible from the outside. When there was a problem they were quick to come and rectify the problem. We were extremely pleased with the workmanship and would certainly recommend this company to anyone. 


Mr and Mrs Tyler,







We are delighted with the gates.  They are beautifully made and finished and a credit to your team.  Please feel free to take photos if you want them in your catalogue. The installation was very tricky, as I expect you have heard, due to the brick pillar being out of true.  The lads had to really work hard to make the gates look right and it took them a long while to get it to everyone’s satisfaction. We cannot speak highly enough of the team.  They were very polite and professional.  They wanted to get it right, not just get it done, and went the extra mile to do so.  You can be proud of your guys and we would not hesitate to recommend HFS Gates to anyone.

With best regards,
Roger Macey,

We have enormous, heavy (electric) Victorian gates which had been lurching badly for some time. One of the gates had pulled out of its foundation. HFS Ltd visited us promptly and gave us a very detailed explanation and competitive quote for the work required to put the gates right and to bring them up to current safety requirements. They completed the work extremely conscientiously and cheerfully, despite the weight of the gates and some atrocious weather! They did a super job and we definitely recommend them. Thanks guys!





Fantastic company who cannot do enough to supply an amazing product and service. Mark, Tracy, David, Sam and Amy all work hard and have a real pride in the work they supply. Will be in my contacts list forever and other work being carried out.

Fully recommend you use this company for your gates and any other work they can do for you.



A huge thank you to the team at HFS for our new sliding electric gates which look very impressive and have been manufactured and installed to the highest standard with great care and precision. We have been very impressed with Mark, Tracy and the team from the start of the project and their attention to detail and hard work has been greatly appreciated. They have been a pleasure to work with and have always been very professional and courteous.

Would recommend wholeheartedly!




A well run family business offering a high quality of service. We are really pleased with our new video entry system and new gate motors after endless trouble with the old ones, so pleased that we went to Hampshire Fencing Services Ltd, would recommend them.

HFS made and installed a pair of large automatic gates and a side pedestrian gate. They were friendly, helpful and came across as really knowing what they were doing. They were not the cheapest quote we had but we are glad we went with them and would recommend them to others.

I don't normally write reviews unless the supplier has been exceptional (or rubbish). These guys were very professional and thorough from the start. We had several companies come and quote for the job and these guys were the only ones who demonstrated that they really knew what they were talking about. For example - every other company 'guessed' (sometimes incorrectly) where the power was to be supplied from. These guys went to extra length to establish EXACTLY where the cables had been laid by the builders and what was required to install. Not only did they provide a competitive quote - the engineer who installed it was professional, polite and friendly at all times. The only negative was that the job took longer than expected due to weather conditions and the installers daughter being unwell, but you cannot blame them for that as these things happen. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them - an excellent job from start to finish.

We moved into a house with electric gates already installed. They stopped working and we called HFS to come and have a look. We had no paperwork or any information about the gates. HFS got them working but we asked them to upgrade our gates to conform to current regs. In doing so, they encountered numerous issues with the existing setup, but were unfailingly positive and did not stop until they had found a solution. The gates now work perfectly and have all the necessary safety features incorporated. They are a great team and very friendly and I would not hesitate in using them again. 



My gates had been badly installed by a "cowboy". HFS sorted them out quickly and efficiently. It is a complicated system which they got to grips with well. They took trouble and I would certainly recommend them. 


The pair of iroko gates that you made for us are fantastic and look beautiful. The craftsmanship is exceptional Everybody who has seen them say the same.

The two men who fitted them on 22/11/2015 were very professional and clearly took great pride in their work.

I could not rate this company high enough and am very happy to do so.


We had a very large sliding gate and a pedestrian gate made to my own design which was then installed. The gates were really beautifully made with great attention to detail and any design modifications were discussed and agreed appropriately. The installation, although took a little longer than expected, was done very neatly with a lot of care and thought which was much appreciated. The final results are excellent the gates look great and everything works really well.


The standard of workmanship was exceptional and the team could not have been more helpful - very impressive service and would not hesitate to recommend them, we were delighted.


We experienced an issue with our electrically actuated gates that caused them to jam. We contacted the installer of the gates who informed us that they would not be able to attend for more than two weeks. And yes, this is absolutely true (And yes, it is a local company based approximately ten miles from Romsey). We were absolutely horrified to be let down in such an appalling manner. I then researched the internet and discovered HFS Gates of Romsey. I telephoned and spoke to a lady named Tracy who was just so terribly polite and courteous. I explained to her the issue we were experiencing; she said that she would contact one of their team who was performing an installation of gates in Curdridge (which must be at least thirty miles distant from our home). Tracy then called back and advised that she had spoken to Dave and that he would leave the installation and would be with me within an hour. Sure enough, Dave promptly arrived within the hour. I was so pleased to see him! He immediately set to work in an wholly methodical fashion and was soon to establish the cause of the problem, which he promptly remedied, enabling him to make his return to the installation in Curdridge in double-quick-time. I have since learned that HFS Gates is a family business staffed with members of a close-knit family. As you will understand from the aforegoing; when electrically actuated gates go wrong such that you are unable to open or close them, this is the time when it is essential to have a prompt response by an organisation that drops everything to resolve your problem. This is precisely what HFS Gates did for us; the service was absolutely magnificent such that it could not be bettered. Were we to move house and have another set of gates installed I would not contemplate contacting anyone other than HFS Gates for the reason that they are so absolutely committed to the pride they take in caring for their customers. Bravo HFS Gates and we thank you so much for your kindness.
