UK Shutters And Blinds Buying Tips For 2012:Posted: September 18, 2012
When looking at getting the most from your UK shutter supplier there are many things that you should consider. For many people looking at the respective pricing models of buying window shutters from UK providers will of course factor into the buying cycle for interior/exterior shutters and blinds. It is important however to remember that cost alone cannot be justification to make a buying choice as this can lead to many other costing considerations directly resulting from any initial decision to buy through price alone and the potential selection of a lower quality initial shutters and blinds choice.
I would therefore also want to look at the quality aspect of the shutter company and for me having a local company that is based in the UK with real life UK customer testimonials, case studies and a real UK reputation for excellence is certainly a decision making prerequisite. I also like to be able to see a personality through the website and be able to actually deal with people who are window shutter professions like Sam at Opennshut. Remember these are the people that you will be dealing with so feeling comfortable knowing the person/people and even having the peace of mind that you have been able to put a face to a name can all help here.
From testimonials you not only get a feel for the quality of the windows shutters and blinds as a product but also a real indication of the after sales of the window fitting company. What better way is there to see how a company performs than by having their customers tell you directly?
Websites are a great source for getting a ‘feel’ for a company and their expertise in the area of shutters and blinds. Look for a number of key areas on a website that give you peace of mind in a company and can enable you to buy online or pick up the phone and speak to the company directly.
Look for signs of reputation and professionalism – have the company got a name that you have heard about or even seen on TV? Does the company have a physical location that you can visit and a landline telephone contact number where you can talk to a human being rather than a call centre?
If you can order online make sure that all the trust indicators that you would want to see before giving someone your credit card information is in place and that you can check these trust signals from separate and external sites not associated with the site you are on.
