Is a straightforward quote really too much to ask for in the glazing industry?


We can all picture the stereo type of the pushy ‘double-glazing salesman’ offering a 50% discount if you buy today but how do you know if you have really bagged a bargain and what is a straightforward, reasonable price in the glazing industry?

Making massive discounts may be the oldest sales trick in the book – but it’s a tactic that’s worked for years in the glazing industry. It’s easy to get sucked in to the pitch but if a company is offering you a 60% discount, buy one get one free or a limited time offer, then the chances are that they have hugely inflated their prices to come up with the initial figure. The reduced price they are offering may not even be that great.

A recent study by Which? found that window salespeople frequently quote a higher price to begin with, which they drop over the course of their sales visit. The price you’re quoted could drop by 75%, or over £10,000, during a sales pitch.

You should always be wary of a company using these sorts of tactics, or anyone who asks for a large deposit upfront. The effect of these smoke and mirrors is to leave customers bewildered about what a reasonable price is.
