Alpine Blids FAQs

A number of FAQs from Alpine Blinds is presented below:



When will I pay for the blinds?

At your initial appointment you’ll be given a quote for your new blinds. If you’re happy at that point we charge a 50% deposit, before we make the blinds for you, and then once the blinds are we will collect the balance.

Do I have to purchase the blinds after the first appointment?

No, there is no obligation to purchase the blinds. Your first appointment will include measuring the required space for blinds, then you will be given a quote. There is no charge for the initial measure and quote for the blinds.

How can I make payment for the blinds?

We accept card payments in our hillington showroom or you can call to make a payment over the phone. We can accept cash, cheque or we can supply our bank details for a bank transfer.

Can I see your blinds range before making an appointment?

Of course, you can view some of the blinds and fabrics in our Hillington showroom. If you wish, you can supply us with the window sizes and the fabric you like from the books and we can supply a quotation. If you wish to proceed with the order, we would then need to make an appointment to take exact measurements, and you can view the actual fabric samples to make sure the colour is just right.

Which areas do you cover?

We cover areas in Central Scotland. We may be able to travel further for certain types of work, so please get in touch if you’re unsure. We also provide blinds as supply-only, so if you’re not in our range, you can order your made to measure blinds with us, and have them delivered with instructions!

Do you fit conservatory blinds?

Yes, we do, and we can fit blinds to both the windows and roof of your conservatory. For more information on our conservatory blind fitting, visit our Conservatory Blinds information page.

Can I get an estimated quote based on my measurements?

Yes, if you fill out our contact form with your measurements, email them to us, or call us, and also let us know the type of blinds you’d like, we can give you a rough quote.

Do you offer a guarantee?

Yes, we provide a 1 year guarantee on all work carried out.

How quickly can you visit me?

This will depend upon the time you contact us. We can in some circumstances come out to visit the same day, but as a general rule we can usually come out within a couple of days of the enquiry. As always we will try our best to accommodate all our customers needs.

Once I’ve placed my order, how long do I have to wait to have the blinds installed?

This depends upon the type of blind ordered. Most ranges take 5-7 working days for manufacturing, some more specialist ranges can take a little longer.

Are the blinds safe for children and/or pets?

There are very strict guidelines for the manufacture and installation of all window blinds which we must adhere to. All blinds come with cord tidies to prevent strangulation of young children, but this also makes them safe around pets too.

Do you provide blinds as supply only?

Yes, if you’re happy to measure your windows and fit the blinds once they’re made, we’ll manufacture them to your requirements.
