Mockfords Eastbourne Blinds is a small family business specialising in handmade roller and vertical blinds. The firm has been in existence for 26 years and has an excellent reputation for customer service and quality. It offers a lifetime guarantee on all components, with the added advantage of being able to change the fabric on either roller or vertical blinds whenever the need arises, for a third of the cost of a new blind.

Mockford’s has a workshop and small showroom at The Industrial Estate, No 1 Green Street, Eastbourne, opposite the first bus stop in Green Street (Tally Ho end).

Harvey Mockford and his wife Jean run the business with the help of their daughter, Lisa. Jean looks after sales of blinds in the Eastbourne and Seaford area. She calls on customers in their homes to measure and estimate. She is happy to give expert advice on fabric suitability and colour co-ordination if required. All estimates are without obligation.

Harvey’s expertise is in the making and fitting of the blinds. Lisa manufactures the vertical blinds and looks after the showroom, which is open Tuesday to Saturday, 9.15am to 1.00pm.

With just three people involved in Mockford’s handmade blinds, the customer will always be dealing with one of the family and will be treated as a person, not an account number.

Most blinds are fitted within three to four weeks from the order being placed, and payment by cash or cheque is accepted on completion of the order. (Credit cards are not accepted, as overheads are kept to a minimum for everyone’s sake.)
