How to order your Aluminium Awning and Patio Canopy
The 5 Steps Buying Process - End User


1. Initial Enquiry and Measurements

It all starts with the initial enquiry, you can call us on 0161 260 2200, email, complete the Contact Us form or click here to request a callback.

When you contact us you will find our sales staff helpful and friendly. We are happy to provide you with as much information as you require and we are happy to advise which product will be most suitable for your needs if you'd like us to.

In addition to the measurements, an image of the site/place where you will do the installation is necessary. It is advised that a site survey is done by a builder/installer to let you know of any issues that may arise. The sales team will go over our product range with you so you can choose a product (or two for choice) if you haven’t already, and they will go through the benefits of each to find the product that fits your requirements the best.

2. We’ll Send You a Quotation

From the initial enquiry, we will create a rough quotation. If this is acceptable we will discuss all your requirements with you and send you a final quotation. Depending on how busy we are, you should receive your quotation within 1-2 working days, please note – in our busier periods, this timeframe may be extended. The quotation will be valid for 3 months from the issue date.

3. Place Your Order

When you are ready to place your order with us all you need to do is give us a call or email and let us know the quotation number and we’ll arrange the delivery of the materials, parts and fixings to you within 5-7 working days.

4. We Will Supply a 3D Drawing.

From your measurements and requirements, we will supply you with a 3D drawing soon after the order is placed, outlining how the product will look like.

5. Delivery

The parts and materials will arrive on-site on our advised date and your builder/installation team can arrive from this point forward. You will be responsible for arranging your own installation team. The installation will take place over the number of days specified by the builder to you. (A typical installation of a 6m x 2.5m Patio-Cover will take two trained people one working day.)
