What should I look out for when having a quotation?

Having someone visit you to provide a quotation can be quite off-putting nowadays as there are so many desperate salesmen and people that haven't got the slightest clue about conservatory blinds.

1. Always get a detailed written quotation - not just a price scribbled on the back of a business card or brochure.

2. Insist on seeing actual blinds - not just fabrics and understand exactly how they will look and fit in your conservatory.

3. There are enormous differences between conservatory blinds so inspect actual installation photographs, rather than marketing photos provided by a supplier.

4. Be sceptical of any verbal comments made by a salesman about other companies or the relative quality of their blinds.

5. Don't rely on the claimed performance figures of blinds - despite what may be said, this is often grossly misleading.

6. Think through the process and confirm any vague points or omissions in writing before placing your order.

7. Never accept verbal reassurances as fact - always insist on a detailed written quotation.

8. Don't be pressured into making a decision for fear of missing out on a "special price".

9. Be very sceptical of salesmen who don't seem to have any technical knowledge or are obviously being vague.

10. If you are in any doubt, don't place an order with anyone - you can always change your mind later.
