International vs Local Shutters
At the ShuttersDept, our key principle is to do what is best for our customers. It's a commitment that guides all our decisions.
We have been in the industry for over a decade. We've spoken to many a do-it-yourselfer in that time and we believe our customers are always looking for greater value in their purchases. We are constantly exploring and evaluating our products, and experimenting with new ways of serving customers, to improve the amount of value we can deliver.
To that end we always are:
- Committed to product quality, and will never compromise on this
- Always transparent about the way we do things
- Partial towards local manufacturing, given a competitive price point
Today, we specialise in selling white, hinged plantation shutters made for windows from PVC. We offer both Aussie Made and imported shutters - of excellent and equal standard. We demand quality and will only ever sell an imported product that is of comparable - or superior - quality to products made in the Australian market.
Our factory in China supplies a global market. They manufacture hundreds of thousands of shutters per year for customers like yourself from all around the world (US, UK and Europe). In fact, we are so confident in the quality and durability of the products we supply, we give a 10 year warranty on our shutters.
This scale advantage allows us to deliver industry leading prices to you, everyday. We import directly from the manufacturer - no intermediaries, no wholesalers. Your shutters are shipped from our factory and delivered directly to your door.
If you can afford them, we encourage buying Australian made.
Until recently, we have only offered imported shutters. While we have remained partial towards Aussie Made products, the price difference between imported and locally made products has been too significant for the DIY market. However, we have found a trusted partner based in Melbourne and are now offering an Aussie Made solution at affordable prices! This means we can support local manufacturing and delivery quickly.
