Garage Door Opener Conversion Pricing

Average Job Cost

Starting at $1,499

Per Opener

Removing an existing ceiling mount opener and installing a side mount opener is a straightforward process that starts at $1,499. Here are a few things to consider when relocating a garage door opener:

  • Do you have electricity where the new operator will go?
  • Do you have enough space for a side mount operator between your wall and garage door?
  • Are you losing any functionality of your ceiling mount operator?

Choose the best location for your garage door opener

A side-mount garage door opener frees up your ceiling space, so you can use it for additional storage. If you don't opt for more storage and leave it open, the open ceiling makes for a clean, crisp garage. Also, side-mount garage doors are quieter than ceiling mount units because there are less vibrations because there is no track or rail for use with the door.

Common Wall Mount to Side Mount Conversion Questions

Are side-mount garage doors popular?

Yes, side-mount garage door openers, also known as jackshaft garage door openers, have recently gained popularity. While traditional garage door openers are typically mounted on the garage ceiling, side-mount openers are installed on the wall beside the garage door. This configuration offers several advantages that have contributed to their growing popularity:

Are side-mount openers quiet?

Quiet and smooth operation: Side mount openers are known for their quiet operation. As they use a different mechanism than traditional chain or belt drive openers, they produce minimal noise and vibrations, making them ideal for attached garages or living spaces above the garage.

Why switch to a side-mount garage door opener?

Space-saving design: Side mount openers are an excellent option for garages with limited headroom or ceiling space. Mounting the opener on the wall frees up overhead space, allowing for more storage or clearance for tall vehicles.


Improved ceiling aesthetics: By eliminating the need for a bulky opener hanging from the ceiling, side mount openers provide a cleaner and more aesthetically pleasing look to the garage. They can be particularly desirable for modern or minimalist architectural styles.

What is the most popular side mount or jackshaft operator?

The LiftMaster 8500W held that title until recently. The new and improved 98022 Elite Series Wall Mount opener is expected to be the most requested jackshaft operator.
