We’re The Window Company. We specialise in Upvc Windows, Doors & bespoke Conservatory’s. Our showroom is based in sale but we do work all around trafford. We’re really busy at present with Conservatories & Composite Doors being the purchase of choice.
What makes you different from other similar businesses in the area?
We’re a truly local established family run company that’s been trading since the early 80s, not many double glazing company’s can say that! We’ve managed to out live our competitors by fitting our jobs to perfection with high quality products.
What flexibility does being an independent business give you over a national chain / business?
It gives us a massive advantage,in all areas. Price, Quality of Workmanship, Personal service, the ability to call into the premises & not have to rely on a call centre.
Looking back, which piece of advice would you give to somebody setting up their own business today?
Look after your customers know matter how many years it’s been since they last bought from you. “Look after your customers & they will look after you”
What part does Social Media play in your business?
A small but an important part. We see social media as a growing concern of interacting with our customers. Our business is made up of one off big purchases so we don’t have as many customers as say a restaurant.
