This is a topic I’ve covered more than once in past articles, but I’m still amazed by how many Aussies turn to shade sail companies and pay inflated costs for shade sails when they can buy shade sail online and avail significant savings!

If you’re looking to buy shade sails, whether you’re in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth or anywhere in between, then know, you’re almost guaranteed to get a better price by shopping for shade sails online. And, by this, I don’t mean dodge off-the-shelf shade sails that come in set sizes and colours – I mean top-end, first-class, high-quality, and every other adjective, custom made to order shade sails.

It sounds too good to be true right? But it is! As shade sail manufactures who get a substantial portion of our business from online shade sail orders, I can tell you that it is possible, practically if you purchase shade sails online through our website.

The cost savings from buying online is obviously a significant advantage. But there are other reasons to buy shade sails online, and this is what we look at today. Continue reading to find out the top reasons to turn to the internet for your shade sails.

Wide range of fabrics and colour options

Unlike off the shelf shade sails, our shade sails are available in a wide range of fabrics and colours. These also happen to be the same selection that you would get (if not wider) than if you were to buy shade sails from a brick and mortar retailer or shade sail company.
