How to Order Your Driveway Gate

Prowell's Wood driveway Gate are normally scheduled about 3-4 weeks out.



Step #1


Select your gate style from the Gallery. Option #1 (12' or less overall width between posts or columns) can be managed by the layman homeowner. All other options should involve the services of a contractor.

Step #2

Check your dimensions. Select an option accordingly from the Base Price Tables and Specifications Page.

The product cost does not include installation.

Step #3

Shipping cost to all 50 states is quoted by contacting Prowell Woodworks. It's not too painful; We enjoy a whopping 87% discount with UPS Freight.
Local delivery fees within the San Francisco Bay Area are listed on the Shipping Page.

Step #4

Contact us to confirm your gate and shipping costs and our current schedule. A general discussion of your project. By phone or email.

Step #5

With this information, you may now want to entertain quotes for installation and automation. Refer these contractors to the web site and the specific Drive Gate, and if they are unfamiliar with us, it is also a good idea to insure they review the PDF Installation Manual to insure a more accurate quote.


Step #6

The Payment Center is linked at the top of every page on the web site. This is a convenience for those wishing to pay by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover). Credit card payments are limited to $15,000 total project value.

* For those Paying by Check, mail to:

Step #7

Usually within 2 business days of receipt of payment, whether by card or check, you will receive an email with a link and log-in to a Site Page where you will be asked to review and approve your statement and drawings by providing your e-signature. With your signed approval, your project is officially scheduled. The Site Page is your resource for the duration of the project, providing pdf statements and drawings, site photos (if any), as well as a host of useful links.

Step #8

Upon completion, photos are posted on the Site Page and the final payment, by check or card, is processed prior to shipping/delivery. Local delivery schedules are arranged through our delivery person. UPS Shipping schedules are verified beforehand to insure someone will be present.


Step #9

As an appreciated courtesy, we ask only that you find a little time to take a few photos of your installed gate and send it to us as Hi resolution images attached to an email. Photos showing the products in their natural setting that adds to the browsing enjoyment of future visitors to the web site.



Cancellations: Because our products are custom made, with advance payments issued to the shop and timetables arranged for scheduled work, a 25% fee is withheld for cancellations, or requests for a refund of the advance payment prior to approval of drawings. There are no refunds once the drawings have been approved.
