I collected a Loc8 sliding door table for my T6 today from VanShades. Excellent customer service, from Eve on the phone to a manager who clarified fitting advice and answered queries. And the Loc8 table itself? Very good, much better than the table fitted by our converters and in some ways better than the table fitted in the California we used to own. Very pleased. I might write another review specifically of the table after we have used it on a proper trip

Great Product, Great Service, Great People. Having bought a set of Pods for our new van conversion, In my mind, there is nothing on the market that can compete with the Vanshades Product and Service.

I cannot recommend these guys highly enough. The products are incredible, the WindowPods have transformed our VW T5, and I can finally bin off the sucker based thermal mats I've spent years sticking and unsticking to the windows...After a perfectly avoidable self induced issue whilst fitting one of them, I was invited to their HQ in Barnsley, where Rich, Jack and the team really looked after me, fixing the problem I'd caused myself, and going above and beyond in terms of customer care, even diagnosing a completely unrelated head scratcher of an issue, and pointing me in the right direction to get that sorted.If you're even remotely considering a purchase, stop dithering and get it done, you won't regret it.

I have had a great customer experience with Vanshades. Their products are of a very high quality and a lot of thought and care has gone into their design and final products. When I contacted them to inquire about products and fixings their staff couldn’t have been more helpful. I would totally recommend this company and their products.
