Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Good Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Charges: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 98%
Before starting work, did the firm explain how to pay (e.g. cash, cheque, etc.)?
 
Reliable: 100%
During the work, did the firm keep their promises, explaining and agreeing any changes about the work, costs or timing where necessary?
 
Invoice: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 98%
On completion, did the firm give you a guarantee for a specified amount of time, or usage (where applicable)?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

Fitted blinds and returned to fix them when I accidentally broke the cord.

"Brilliant service. I bought my blinds from Mark a few years ago and was really pleased with the service then. Great value for money, well fitted and prompt service.

When I broke one of the cords recently, I got back in touch with Mark who came round and sorted the issue for me. It was no trouble and at all.

Would highly recommend and would definitely purchase from again."

A variety of sizes, styles and functionality of blinds have been expertly supplied and fitted by Mark. Even when an issue has arisen this has been swiftly addressed and fully resolved to our complete satisfaction.
 
Cost: £1000
 

"This company have acted professionally throughout; multiple samples were shown at the selection stage, the quote was clear and easy to understand and the installation was straightforward. We have purchased from this company on several occasions and for a wide variety of styles, sizes and functions.

Any issues have been swiftly resolved, in fact making them hard to recall. We are totally satisfied and would both re-use and recommend Mark McGowan Blinds."

"Mark is professional, efficient, polite and above all reliable. He takes time to discuss options and gives time to make a decision with no sales pressure. Nothing is a bother to Mark and he always replies promptly to any telephone or email communication.
