How to Buy Window Blinds Online

Buy window blinds online and REALLY save money. Don't make the mistakes others have made already.

The first thing you need to look for before you order blinds online is quality, now the best way to check that is by trying it yourself, which of course is not what you want to do.

So the second best way is to hear what others say. Read independent customer reviews and complaints on the company.

Take a look at the company's BBB report, this will give you an indication of how they happy their customers are. This you can access either through the BBB logo on the bottom of the website or by going to www.bbb.org and pressing on the Phone, URL, E-mail tab. Here you put in the website address and press Search.

Another good idea is to check out before you buy window blinds online is if the company has a warranty. This shows that they stand behind their products. No company wants to have to keep on replacing parts etc. A warranty shows that they feel comfortable saying "I'll replace it for you" because they know that they won't need to do it often.

Also be sure to read the warranty which you will find by the company's policies or terms and conditions. Never assume that the word warranty will cover what you want it to cover, always double-check so that you shouldn't get any surprises.

Don't confuse the warranty with the price match guarantee, which is by the way a great thing to have, however it only guarantees that you will pay the lowest price.

Now if you find happy clients, BBB is happy and a good warranty the online retailer passed the quality control test.

Now, the most important tip: Follow Instructions!

Whether it is how to measure or install or the importance of ordering color samples, following instructions from the online store will save you from a lot of heartache like being stuck with poorly fitted or wrong colored blinds.
