Hi,

Any advice please. We have had a quote for a new toledo (awning over the patio to keep out the sun) from a company called La Morena. The guy that measured up seemed to know what he was talking about and came up with some good ideas. My concern is that their quote asks for 50% up front. I'm a bit concerned about doing that. Has anybody else used this company or has anybody got any recommendations for a company to use.

Thanks

I  had a  quote  for windows  from English  company  and it  was  50%  down the balance  on Completion,  it  appears  the  normal,

Have taken  a spin out to  Los  Montesinos  as  there  is 3 or  4  company  doing Toledo, just  before  you come to Los Montesinos  village,  it  worth  a go as I  am getting  my Windows  from  a Company  in Los Montesinos  and a good bit cheaper  than  any one  else and it includes  Relex  glass  can't see  in from outside  in Day light  hours, but accepted  500 deposit,  so  Shop around  best answer  I can give you 😉

I can recommend toldos costablanca

Good quality, good customer service & certainly did not ask for 50% deposit

We used Toldos Guardamar, quick and efficient, nothing up front and all measured and fitted within 72 hours. Ours is 10 years old and looks like new. DO NOT PAY UP FRONT..

Us, and a lot of our neighbours use Corona Blinds in Los Montesinos.

We paid 1.400€ for 3 toldos.

Quality blinds and strong attachments.

They do not fade at all.

George was the rep that came to us.

Yes,we paid 50% deposit,it's only fair that you do.

Good luck.

Hi Phil,

We've bought toldos from both Toldos Guardamar and Toldos Sirena, both in Guardamar del Segura.  We were very pleased with the product quality and service from both companies.  Whilst neither company asked for money upfront, I don't think it's unreasonable to ask for a small deposit when placing an order, but personally I think 50% is too much.

Kind regards,

Kim
