Ordered three pods, two sliding doors and a rear tailgate. Arrived in good time and well packaged! Easy to follow instructions included, but also ample video tutorials available.The product itself is very well designed and the quality is also very good. A nice snug fit without interfering with the door seals.They have added a very stylish finish to my van, with the added benefit of being black out and colour matched to my interior.Thank you!

Isn't it good when you find a company that are professional, accommodating and true to their word.I've just got home from having a side shade fitted to my VW T5. The whole process from the initial phone call to driving away with my new "van Shades" blind was excellent. Absolutely excellent even!!!All the staff are courteous and attentive even though they are extremely busy.They have a very large, professional production facility which I'm sure they're going to out grow in the near future as the range of products and choice is vast.I chose a grey shade with grey material surround and it transforms my van immensely. The build quality is second to none too, and there's nothing out there (that I've seen) that comes close to this. So much better than curtains.I really appreciate the effort for fitting me in at such short notice (giving you only a few days to make my blind and Install it) even though I know you are absolutely pulled out with work.🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟A 5 star company where nothing is too much trouble.... I'll certainly be coming back when I want a blind for the rear window..Cheers guys and girls, all the very best for the future.From Sean.

Fantastic company. Upon visiting Vanshades for some advice on fitting their product to our van, they couldn't have been more helpful, especially Zak who even offered to fit them for us and did a much better job than we would have done, all staff we came into contact with were so helpful and friendly, I highly recommend the company and the product, amazing customer service.
