Our team are always happy to answer any questions that you might have about the process, or the final product – so to save you some time, this week we thought we’d sum up some of the most common queries we often field from customers!

Choosing my awning

What type of awning would suit my vehicle?

To be honest, the best type of awning for you depends on the specific setting and application you have in mind. When you first get in touch with one of our team, we’ll be able to provide you with some more detailed advice on which awning would be the right fit for your vehicle, trailer or container. Once we’ve ironed out the details with you, we can then get started on manufacturing your awning, making everything to order from our factory in Bolton, Lancashire.

Can your awnings be fitted to any vehicle?

We manufacture cassette awnings, modular awnings and free-standing structures, so rest assured that whatever type of vehicle you have in mind, we’ll have an awning to suit you.

Can I buy a roof-only awning?

Certainly! We can make any of our vehicle awnings available as a roof-only system, so if you’d like, you can always choose to purchase sides at a later date. Equally, if a roof is all you’re after, then there’s no requirement to add the sides if you know you won’t need them.


Can my awning have printed sheets?

Yes. With our years of expertise, we’re able to offer an in-house printing service for our customers, so that you can customise your awning as much or as little as you’d like. That means it can serve as the perfect canvas for you to showcase your company or brand, or choose a shade to display your logo on.

Can I have the same awning as another customer?

Yes! We’d be more than happy to recreate an awning we’ve previously produced for another happy customer, from the structure right through to the design and customisation options. 


Do you provide offsite installations?

We do offer off-site installations for our commercial clients – when you’re running a business, you often need the extra flexibility! The specifics vary between each customer, so if you need more information about offsite installations, don’t hesitate to contact our team on 01204 867 562, and we’ll be happy to discuss things in more detail with you.

I already have an awning on my vehicle – would you be able to remove and replace this?

Yes. We’ve got all the tools, knowledge and resources we need to be able to remove and replace your old awning. The removal is a careful task that requires specialist expertise and tools to avoid damaging your vehicle, but you can trust our experts to get the job done. From there, we’ll seal the recess in your vehicle, and prepare to fit a GH awning over this.

That’s just a brief overview of the process – again, if you need any more information, give our team a call.

Finance and warranties

Do you offer finance?

Yes. We understand that sometimes you need that extra flexibility when it comes to financing your awning, so we work with a reputable finance company to give you more options.

Do your awnings come with a warranty?

Yes – we offer a 12-month warranty with every one of our awnings, so that you can always have complete peace of mind in their durability, reliability and performance.

Those are all the key questions covered! Of course, if you’ve got any queries that you don’t see here, don’t hesitate to contact us. As we’ve covered above, you can give our experts a call on 01204 544 900. Alternatively, if you’re ready to submit a quote, head on over to our Get A Quote page, and let’s get started!
