When my friends or family ask who supplied and fitted my blinds, I excitedly recommend Hillarys. Most of my friends and family have Hillarys blinds now, they're all thankful for my recommendation.
I fell in love with Hillarys beautiful collection of window furnishings when I first saw them. They offered me a free appointment where an advisor visits your home, measures up for free and shows you all of the samples. I bit their hand off.
My appointment lasted just under an hour, though, I wanted to see everything so it probably took longer than normal. My advisor was a polite local man that clearly knew a lot about blinds. After showing me the samples and offering his recommendations, he measured up and gave me a no obligation quotation. He didn't seem pushy at all.
I ended up not buying then, but getting quotations from other companies. I really knew nothing about blinds and wanted to guarantee the value being offered. 2 quotes later I phoned Hillarys and went ahead...
The other quotes weren't even close to Hillarys, the next lowest price was just over £120 higher. This was a while ago too, this sale they have on now where you can get 50% off wasn't on back then.
The other reasons that impacted my choice were: Hillarys include free child safety devices (a MUST have if children have access), they have a 5 year guarantee, all their blinds are manufactured in the UK, and they've got 40 years of experience which I trusted to provide a better service.
16 days later, my local advisor from Hillarys (the same one that measured up before) came to fit my blinds. "Wow, they look nice!" was the first reaction from my friend Christie, who visited hours after they were fitted. The fitting was fast, the blinds looked beautiful (and still do), and my local advisor gave me a phone number to get hold of him directly if there was ever any problems. There wasn't.
This was 18 months ago now. I still love my blinds, but I just had a quote for Shutters, which look fabulous - I'll see what my husband thinks.
All in all, Hillarys provided me with wonderful blinds that make my home look better than I ever thought possible without spending a fortune.
