Imagine if a window company just gave an honest price straight away? No haggling, that's the price, take it or leave it. Life would be much easier. I'm hoping there are some out there that offer that, not Safestyle clearly.

There is. The local company we have used that has been going for years. No good for anyone not around here though lol

How many people accept the high offer .. con artists

We got done on the driveway when we moved in. Never again. Very careful since.

The thing is, they know that our neighbour had their windows done by safestyle and we are an identical house. The neighbour paid £7200, so they know what they need to get to.

Company I described earlier did just that, as did the independent weve used round here. Measure up and then email a price later in the day.

The bloody weather. Days off for my birthday starting today and it's lashing down and very windy. Course closed like others are. Hoping for an improvement by Friday.
Course currently open but lashing down again now. Golf will be cancelled again tomorrow I bet. Just hoping that all is OK on Sunday when I can next play.

Place I’m working at today, Cowen Windows in Whitby, family run firm who make cracking windows, really down to earth and great to do work for. I’d get windows from them in a heartbeat 👌

Just noticed with have a customer called Clearview Windows in Southampton, they look to use Rehau profile. I don’t know much about them as I’ve never been in there but your windows would be made by our machines 🤣

1. The Amazon delivery driver that keeps leaving parcels on the doorstep when we're out, even though the next door neighbour 10 yards away is home, then records on Amazon as "Handed to resident".
2. The yoof that stole the parcel today.
3. The fact that, even though it must happen extremely frequently, there's no option within Amazon to tick a box saying "Stolen from my doorstep". My doorbell cam recorded the parcel being delivered and stolen 30 minutes later, but Amazon insist that they won't do anything until Friday, as it'll probably turn up. 🤔
You missed the bit about the fact that when you try & report one of their fictitious "Handed to resident" deliveries it is nigh on impossible.

The company that fit our windows did exactly that. Came and measured up, quoted the next day.

I told everyone that came that I would only accept one price from them, and the first number they said would be the one I base my decision on.
I also told them as they walked through the door that I would not be signing up to anything that day.

Some of them didn’t know what to do with themselves.

i wouldn’t go anywhere near safestyle personally.
They just bang out as many windows as possible and not too fussed on quality.
