I have asked local advisor which country the headrails for vertical blinds are manufactured.

I was told they are made in nottingham.
I was told the blinds are made to measure.

Both statements are wrong and mis-leading!

The vertical blind headrails are made in china (very cheaply!) and are delivered in pre set widths. They are certainly not made to measure!!!

    You are correct about the headrails from hillarys Blinds. I have delivered thousands of the things. They come in from China in containers in individual boxes and are already made in 1 centimetre ingrements. The warehouse in Washington (tyne and wear) is stacked full of them. I have hade one fitted in my house they are total rubbish. They look cheap compared to the old one they fitted a couple of years ago, they are noisey and they are not the size of my window. The advisor measured my window at 145.5cm wide but the blind is only 144. This is not made to measure is it. I queried this with hillarys an they told me they knock 10mm off to allow for fit, but they have knocked 15mm which means i have a bloody great gap at one end. Awful company, awful service and awful headrail. ADVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE
