A massive shout out to Vanshades particularly Jack for his professional and understanding approach. After a fantastic weekend away at the Yorkshire beer and food festival we decided to drop in on Vanshades on the way back home to see if they could help us with an issue we had with one of our side pods. We purchased our blinds quite a few months ago for a VW T6.1 conversion that we were carrying out ourselves but found that when we installed the kitchen unit the pod fouled with the glass on the cooker not allowing it to open fully causing the glass to come detached from the hinges. Without any question Jack said that he could help by removing the pod we had purchased originally and swapping it for a slimmer unit and he would do this free of charge.I have to say I was not expecting this level of customer service as it was my decision originally to purchase the pod that we had.Cannot recommend Vanshades enough they supply a fantastic product and what is very hard to come by nowadays a fantastic customer service.Again thank you Jack and Eve for all of your help and understanding.Clark.

Amazing customer service! I bought my vanshades around 5 years ago, they have been brilliant, however one of the shade mechanisms had begun to have issues. We contacted Vanshades who couldn’t have been more helpful! We posted the shade back to them, who resolved the problem and returned it. I couldn’t have been happier with the result! They went above and beyond.

Great products, but when things aren't quite right, customer services are brilliant, they honestly couldn't do enough to make things right.
