    I was planning to buy windows in Poland as a lot of people recommended that. For those windows (triple glazed, both sides golden oak, warm frame, 6 chambers and tilt and turn)

    Window 1 1200 mm x 900 mm
    Window 2 1890 mm x 1200 mm
    Window 3 1230 mm x 1200 mm
    Window 4 1210 mm x 1200 mm
    Window 5 2380 mm x 1400 mm fixed
    Window 6 890 mm x 680 mm

    I received quote around 1400-1600. But I read that it is not good idea to buy in Poland and import here anymore. So I got the quote from Everest. Well, their initial offer 18k, and discounted to 9k. Aside from the fact that the man who came to do a quote did it for double glazing against my wishes for triple glazing. Kept asking why I want double side golden oak, why tilt and turn etc, etc. Then I asked him how much cost the windows without installation. He said it is impossible. He tried all the tricks; finance, showing me a sample - that actually made me laugh. It looked cheap, despite his assurance that it is the best window in the market. When I asked him about the size of reinforcement he said he doesn't remember. When I asked about the name of the profile, he went blank saying that it is just a frame and has no name. Also, he claimed that his company does 5 chambers and this is the most in the UK.

    I had never met before such unprofessional service. I wonder who buys windows from scammers like them? I asked about the technical specification of the windows. I got summary page without ANY concrete information there ZERO specification.

    I will order directly from a manufacturer. Do you know any good/reliable window manufacturer in Scotland?

If the company is decent and youre not being scammed eastern Europe could be a good way of getting quality windows for a fraction of the price . (ive never even thought about it ) It could be done thought . you seem to know the way and ins & out of what you want . I'm unsure of the spec and how many chambers are in the frames ive been fitting for the past decade if I'm honest , I know sterling in warrington do golden oak warm frame 32mm triple glazed 70mm T&T . That quote above is seriously low for your spec but give them a message . Probs direct it straight to andy wells the boss . I'm unsure about the delivery by them but they or you could work out a courier service or a day out in a long based tranny van . good luck and keep us up dated
    hard as nails on the internet . wimp in the real world
