After being badly let down, by a Large department store re ordering of curtains and track, I went on a web search. I found Eric The Rails, and phoned him to come out to Southport to quote for a Curtain track for an awkward Bay window. He arrived when he said he would and quoted a price far cheaper than the Large department store, also including the fitting.
On the day of fitting he again arrived on time, did an excellent fitting job in a very narrow gap at the end of a row of built in wardrobes. He cleaned up after himself, and the finished product is a mirror image of the one downstairs fitted last year by the large department store. Eric is very friendly, and honest. I would highly recommend him.

Mr Forshaw. Southport.
Sorry this has taken so long to send this testimonial. “I would just like to say how pleased we are with the service, supply and fitting of our new bay window curtain rail. After many years of living with a poll across the window, which has fallen down several times, we decided to consider how to install a bay window rail, the window also has vertical blinds to contend with, so for us this was never going to be an easy solution. After several drawings, changes in design and then eventual tears, we realised that this was a job for someone with the proper expertise to complete. After we initially booked Eric in for a quote and assessment, he scheduled us in at a time convenient to us and made the whole job look quick and very easy. If you want a job done properly and your curtains to stay up, then I would highly recommend Eric to keep your curtains on the rails.”
* Fantastic service, would
definitely recommend *
I needed a very long curtain pole to reach wall to wall and a voile track too. Having trawled websites trying to find the right poles/tracks, I became somewhat overwhelmed by the lack of apparent options and how to fit.
One call to Eric and he made the whole job seem so simple (even though it wasn't!) Great communications, arrived for both appointments when he said he would. Genuinely good guy. I am delighted, thank you so much
A landlord in Yorkshire subject to lockdown restrictions but facing chronic problems with bay window curtains searched online and discovered Eric The Rails. Eric arrived quickly at the rented property, identified the problem (existing rails unsuitable for bay windows) and proposed a solution at a very reasonable price.
A few days later the replacement rails were installed, curtains re-hung and two residents were delighted to find that their curtains were secure and moved serenely along the track. A great professional job executed with skill providing a swift, perfect solution. Thank you Eric
I just wanted to
write a post to say what a fantastic job Eric did putting up both
track and pole curtain rails for me. The whole process from start to
finish was seamless.
After coming to measure up - it was less than a week for fitting. The price was great. I even made a small change to my requirements, that Eric happily accomodated.
On day of fitting - Eric wears the whole kit - the shoe protectors and the mask to keep everyone safe. He is quick, quiet, friendly and tidy. He even put my curtains back up for me bless him.
Quality was great - and I am so happy with his service and would recommend him to anyone and everyone who needs curtain poles. Thankyou Eric, great job and it was lovely meeting you.
I just wanted to say how absolutely delighted we are with our new curtain rails. You did a fabulous job and our front room and living room look so much better.
You patience and helpfulness were also much appreciated. Thanks once again.
Made up With the curtains mate. Nice one appreciate it
Just wanted to say how pleased I am with the new curtain rails. They have finished off my home better than I imagined. Regards.
I booked Erictherails to fit 4 curtain poles and 4 sets of curtains for my house. Eric arrived on time and he was very polite and friendly. The price to fit the poles and curtains was incredibly cheap.
I found Eric himself to be the perfectionist, he took his time to carefully measure up the curtain poles and he fitted the curtains beautifully. I am absolutely delighted with Eric's workmanship and I would highly recommend Eric.
Can't thank you enough Eric x
Nicola, Kirkby Village
We had some lovely curtains made for a bay window, but they were badly hung and didn't appear to fit. By re-hanging the curtains so they fit perfectly in lovely pleats and now fit the space, Eric the Rails transformed the room - and was a very jolly presence while doing it! Highly recommended.
Mrs T Watts-Hunt, Garston
Just a quick thanks for the stirling work you did on our bay windows.
Arrived promptly to quote us, put our minds at ease when we were
stressing and then surprised us with the finish. As curtain rails go,
it does look great! We're really pleased. Would recommend you to
anyone, well played mate.
Would just like to thank you for the fabulous job you did fitting the
curtain tracks to what we thought were awkward bay windows. You advice
and knowledge is amazing. Also thank you for being on time and using
dust sheets and wearing over-shoes on our new carpets. You are a true
professional. Would have no hesitation recommending you.

Eric fitted a curtain rail in my living room in December. Despite
being it a busy month, he knew exactly when he would have time and
came on the planned day for the measurements. The next day he fitted
the rail and hung up the curtains. It's great to have a reliable and
competent tradesman who is responsive and on time. I definitely

Happy 2019. I had also time off from emails (loads of them at work) , so here follows my review.

Thanks once again and please find below a testimonial for your website.
“Thank you so much Eric and Josh for your excellent and professional service. We are absolutely delighted with our curtains and your advice is second to none. The way they hang is a testament to your skilled approach and the experience you have gained over many years. “
Julie & Ian. Arden House.
We required new curtain rails and someone recommended eric the rails so we contacted him for a quote and we are delighted with his work very professional and clean using dust mats and shoe protectors which we appreciated as we have just had new carpets fitted, 10 out of 10 a top guy who gives a great service.
Just wanted to say how impressed I am at the service provided. My initial enquiry was responded to swiftly and all appointments from then on were kept as arranged. Reliability is so important and quite rare these days and I am very pleased with the service you both offer and deliver.
Thank you for sorting out my curtains, it's good to have them working again.
thank you for coming out yesterday as agreed several weeks ago when you first called to give us a price for your work with Josh.
We were surprised that even after the snow we had last week that put so many tradesman behind, causing other tradies we were using to rearrange their dates, - that you called as arranged and on time to provide every room in our home with slide and glide metal rails. Most of the rooms in our house have bay windows involving quite a few bends that add difficulty to the job, the house still has many packing cases and tools on the floors for you to work 'around'. You did this uncomplainingly and with a smile on your face.
Finally the other complication is that the house is an old cottage and therefore some of the windows at the end of the house are not straight to the ceiling and even this did not cause you or Steve (your right hand man on the day) any problems and your eye for detail was spot on and the rails are going to give the impression that the ceilings and windows are straight.
Your work was exceptional given the circumstances, furthermore the fact that we had to leave you in the house for most the day on your own was not an issue for you or us, and one can see at hand you couldn't be more trustworthy and honest guys.
We would have absolutely no trouble recommending you to others and the price you gave for this job was £600 cheaper than a national chain of stores we could have asked to do the job.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a job really well done.
Gen & Phil Flynn
Just to say I am absolutely delighted that I phoned you this morning after my curtain rail came crashing down. You were busy for the day but you fitted our job in on a Friday evening...that is going the extra mile. No fuss, efficient, excellent service!
Almost glad it fell down because now I have the swish. I would Highly recommend you.
Eric fitted my rail today and even hung my new curtains for me. I was extremely happy with his work and found him very polite, friendly and hard working.
I would certainly recommend him to any friends
Hi Eric Just thought i'd write a
review for your website.
To say i'm delighted with the work you carried out would be an understatement.We
purchased a cheap rail from a diy shop and it just wouldn't carry the weight of the
curtains. After spending many hours and many arguments not getting it right we did a
search on the internet and found you. You arrived at the agreed time and immediately
put us at ease with your happy and helpful manner. We where expecting a lot of
sucking of teeth and sighing, but no. You instantly explained the difference between
"diy" tracks and professional tracks. The quote you gave us was reasonable and we
agreed a date to fit it. Again you arrived on time removing the old track. We
certainly weren't expecting you to make good the old holes. The awkward bay you made
look easy and once again we weren't expecting you to re hang the curtains. Then
getting a vaccum cleaner from your car to clean up frankly was an unexpected bonus.
Thank you for a 10 out of 10 job and going the extra mile. I really couldn't
recommend you enough and will certainly be getting you back in the near future as
our curtains now glide with extreme ease and hang so much better so it puts the rest
of our curtain tracks to shame. Thanks once again
We first used Eric to fit a curtain rail in a large Victorian bay window, which was causing us some difficulty. He came round to give us a quote and we was very impressed with the advice and knowledge he gave us. After he fitted the rail and hung the curtains, we decided to have him back and fit another four curtain rails in our house.
We are extremely happy with his work and found him polite and a hard working professional. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend him to any of my friends.
Thomas, Mossley Hill
Made up with the rails...thanks so so much!!!
just got home and seen the curtains thanks very much very made up with them will recommend you to anyone who asks, thanks again.
Thanks for a great job fitting our rooms with curtain rails! Professional fitting and works better than i thought, even with the old curtains up for now. Couldnt recommend more.
Very professional job perfomed by Eric and Josh. They were here at the required time, they clean after themselves, and most importantly the curtains look great. Highly recommended.
Just wanted to say a big thank you for my curtain rail and help with hanging my curtains.
As you know I attempted to put my own rail up in a large bay, but failed miserably trying to bend it. The rail you put up is great.
Can I also thank you for coming back when I got my new curtains delivered a few days later. You hung my old curtains for me when you put the rail up, then came back out and rehung my new ones - I wasnt expecting that.
As the new ones had a different heading they needed more hooks and runners to make them hang right. I was very happily surprised when you came the same day, provided the hooks and runners and even rehung my new curtains at no extra charge!
I have to say I would strongly recommend you to my mum - and that's the best compliment I can give! I am more than happy if you would like to use this letter as a testimony.
Thanks again and next time I need a curtain rail I'll give you a call.
Definitely recommend Eric.
Initial telephone call turned into a site visit the next day with a very reasonable quote.
Work carried out within 24-48hrs to a excellent standard. Excellent customer service, trustworthy and reliable. Would use again without any problem.
ThankYou Eric for the efficient
and professional manner in which you installed our new curtain rails.
We were impressed by your good eye for detail and quality workmanship.
We would recommend Eric to our family and friends as he is certainly
prepared to work hard with his capable assistant Josh in order to
guarantee customer satisfaction
Janet & Paul Crosby
To say I am a "perfectionist" is
This gentleman, in every sense of the word is the epitome of a "perfectionist"
I called upon him to fit and supply four sets of blinds and three sets of curtains for me.
I had been quoted from three other well known blind and curtain fitters, and found Eric to be surprisingly cheaper for the same job. From the first telephone call to the completion of the amazing job that he did took a week from start to finish. I got lots of invaluable advice which resulted in my house being made into a "home" for me and my daughter. I would have no hesitation in recommending "Eric the rails" to anyone looking for top quality blinds and curtains fitted by an absolute gentleman. He is very tidy and clean which is a rare quality in workmen these days.
From the bottom of my heart a huge "Thankyou" for all that you have helped me to achieve in such a short space of time. 10/10
Just a quick email to say a BIG thank you for the great job you have done today on fitting my new curtain rail. I can't fault your service or workmanship and would be more than pleased to recommend you to others.
Just a quick note to say just how extremely happy we are with the new curtain rail you fitted this morning. We were amazed at the care and effort you took to ensure a curtain rail that will surely last for ever. Thanks again for a really great job with a ready smile and a joke at a very competitive price. We'll be back to you soon when it's time for the new blinds.
Just thought I'd say a big thank you for sorting my curtains out. They are really looking good, I'm very pleased with them and it finishes my room off for me! Please thank the seamstress that made them as she has done a lovely job especially because of the sliight imperfection ( not her fault ) .
just to say thanks again for doing the curtains and rail, really pleased, no doubt will call on your service again in the near future
Karen, , Liverpool
Just had rails and curtains fitted by Eric. Exellent job and very reasonable price. Highly recommended.
R. Thomas. Southportl
I am just sending you a note to say how chuffed we are with your recent hanging of our curtains in our guest bedroom. It was so easy to just obtain the correct curtains so you could fit the rail and hang them for us in one go. As repeat customers we are still amazed at how quickly you get the job done with minimal hassle and disruption. You have all the kit and knowledge needed to ensure the final look of the curtains is just perfect for even the most demanding customers! The room is so dark now at night, perfect for our guests who might like to sleep in during these bright light summer months.
Peter & Tim, Aigburth, Liverpool
I'm delighted with my new
blackout curtains as I no longer wake up when the sun rises. I
certainly will use Eric again as his overall service is outstanding &
value for money. Well-made curtains and a professional who you can
trust to do an excellent job.
Amazing job very good and
realiable and reasonable and his steamstress who made our curtains
excellent deffo recommend
I have just had my blinds fitted
from Eric The Rails and wanted to comment on how professional he was.
Eric was punctual and got to work straight away. He was very
respectful of my home as I’ve just had new carpets fitted. He used
dust sheets on the window sills to catch the dust when using the drill
to fit the blinds. He top fixed the blinds so no damage was done to my
window frames when fitting them.
A true professional in his workmanship, knowledgeable and very polite at all times. I would recommend him to anyone and would certainly use him again.
Wow!! Can't recommend Eric and
his skills highly enough!! My windows are awkward shapes but no
problem for Eric he knows exactly what he needs to to. Fantastic job
first class finish, Eric only uses the best materials and with a life
time guarantee! He is very profressional and leaves everything clean
and tidy. He goes the "extra mile" and was recommended by a friend.
So go on what you waiting for give him a call, you wont be disappointed.
Just wanted to write to thank you so much for fixing my elderly mothers rail so promptly. We really thought she'd need a new track but within minutes you had identified the problem and fixed it. Being so honest is a credit to yourself as we would have paid for a new track as Mum's track was very old. It is now working as good as new.
We will have no hesitation in recommending Eric the rails.
Thank you again
Jo & Steve (Childwall )
Eric made and fitted my lounge
curtains with tie backs, and also fitted the rails. A job well done
and cleanly executed. I would recommend him to any of my friends.
Thanks a lot and I hope to do business with you in future.
