Paying upfront

Posted by Mel Peel, on
Is it standard practice to ask for a deposit before installing double glazing (2 windows) ? I expected to pay for the job on completion but am now wary about paying money upfront

Hi Melisa, it's standard practice within our industry to collect a deposit before ordering any products for a customer. As long as the fitter has good ratings you should be fine! Hope this helps. Josh.
