Vertical & Mini Blinds
Dealers that sell vertical and mini blinds offer many services for consumers, including installation, repair, custom fittings, and parts replacement. Many customers come into window treatments and coverings shops with measurements of their home or office windows. Sales associates can assist in finding them the right measurements, along with style, color, and materials, such as bamboo or plastic. But sometimes, the store doesn't carry that particular size. They may have to cut the desired blinds down to size.
For big jobs, customers may wish to hire a technician from the store to provide installation of their new vertical or mini blinds, or even Venetian shades. In this case, a technician visits the person's home at a scheduled time to put in the new blinds, whether made from aluminum, fabric, or faux wood.
Sometimes, customers lose or break the thin rod that controls the slats, or perhaps the string mechanism or roller have broken. In these cases, mini and vertical blinds dealers can provide repair or parts replacement. Cost may vary according to service arrangements, quality of curtain, and type of blind.
Dealers in this business must be sales savvy, have great communication skills, and be knowledgeable about shades and curtains of all kinds. They should be able to tell the customer which blinds are best for protection from the sun, which fabrics are the most durable, and which ones are most cost effective. They can also offer discounts on sale items, discontinued models, and slightly damaged curtains, shutters, and blinds, such as faux wood.
