- What will I need to order my trims?
There are many different trims which are similar in terms of their shape, size or material, so in order to ensure you purchase and receive the product you want, we highly recommend identifying your preferred trims’ article code (Art. Code) that accurately categorizes its type, size, and finish, and ensures you refer to the correct product. As an identifying code unique to each trim, this enables you to quickly and accurately detail which trim you require.
When browsing our product range, you can find this information in a box to the bottom right of the product leaflet. Alternatively, within the Profilitec catalogue, you can find it under the “Art.” section in each listing of trims, along with other details.
I don’t know which trims are most suitable.
You may want a weather-resistant trim for outdoor fitting, or something that can bend to fit a curve. We highly recommend that you consider having a look at the materials overview page, which describes which materials or finishes you should consider for particular purposes. If you’re still unsure, feel free to shoot us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will consult our product advisor to make an informed recommendation for you.
How do I place my trims order?
Once you have identified the article code of the trim you require, we encourage you to get in touch with us. You can send an email to email@example.com or call 01565 344 860. If you quote the Article Code to us, we can quickly give you pricing details and prepare a quote for you. If you do not have the Article Code available or are having issues, feel free to get in touch anyway and we can help you identify it.
- How soon can I get my trims?
Your trims are delivered to you, or to your site, in four to five business days on a standard £15+ VAT delivery via UPS. An express option is available that can expedite this to a two-day or even a next-day lead time, depending on the time of purchase, though this incurs a cost dependant on the weight of your order and destination area. Orders over £500 before VAT/carriage costs qualify for free standard delivery. Orders under £100 before VAT/carriage costs are subject to a £12+VAT small order surcharge to help cover the minimum costs of international delivery. Please inquire if that’s something you’d like to consider.
What else does the order process involve?
Ideally, we can confirm your trim’s art. code and then provide you with a quote depending on how many you need. If you accept the quote, we will then confirm if Profilitec has the trim in stock and available for you. This is rarely the case but will prevent unexpected delays being made after payment. If you require express delivery, you can provide us your delivery postcode and obtain the cost of this delivery service for you as well. When we have received the stock confirmation, we will be able to send you the invoice and then request for the delivery process to begin when payment is received.
- What is your pricing scheme?
TT Trims can offer competitive discounts with larger orders and frequent buyers, which we can negotiate on an individual basis – but you can find the prices of each trim in the catalogue which you can download here.
- Can I order a trim in a finish not specified or listed?
If you’d like a trim but in a particular finish that isn’t already produced, Profilitec may be able to produce it if they can guarantee the quality of the finish and if the production method allows it – but custom trims like this require a minimum order size of around 150+ units. Please inquire if you’d like to know more.
- Can you provide a quote for trims I am considering?
We can – just let us know which trims you’re thinking about and how many, and we can provide you a quote detailing the full costs. If you want express delivery, let us know your delivery address as well.
