debesto relibility

If you are reading this article, it probably means you want to verify debesto as your potential European window supplier. This is so wise of you!

Feeling safe before deciding to import windows from Europe to the U.S. is essential. Being in your place, we would do the same because verifying your window agent ensures you avoid costly mistakes!

We operate with integrity, aiming for transparency and understanding of our business strategy. We have nothing to hide.

Use our tips to verify debesto and save time. Cross-reference facts about us with official, independent registries.

In this article, you can read about:

Why does debesto require payment for windows before delivery?

Wojtek Stanowski CEO debesto

At debesto we deliver customized windows with a guarantee of a fixed price and safe shipping, ensuring that the price agreed upon in the pro forma invoice will not change.
To afford you these benefits we need to receive full payment before dispatching the windows.

Wojtek Stanowski, CEO at debesto

debesto’s risk is particularly notable in situations where, if anything goes wrong, we cannot sell those windows to anyone else. For example, if no one picks up the order in the U.S., we face the costs of transport in both directions and customs fees.

We understand that making a payment upfront may seem risky to you as well. However, to enhance your confidence, we offer several options:

  • Taking pictures of the windows securely packed on stands, prepared for traveling in the container.
  • Offering safe payment methods, such as PayPal, to secure your transaction.
  • Allowing you to order a window sample before committing to a full purchase, at a low price and with minimal risk, giving you firsthand experience with our product quality and service.

Is debesto a legitimate company, not a scam?

As we have explained the financial issues, we would also like to assist you in verifying the legitimacy of debesto as a company. Additionally, we will provide you with tips to quickly check proven, legitimate sources.

You can verify us in several ways:

Check legitimacy through Polish official registries

Note: All Polish official registries have a web address suffix of “gov.pl”. This cannot be faked.

You can use the search engine of the Polish Ministry of Development and Technology to verify whether debesto is a legally operating company. You will need one of two numbers: the NIP number (9112037154) or the REGON number (38777935400000).

Click “see more information” to verify the names of representatives and information about the company’s non-bankruptcy status as well.

Check share capital through KRS

Which scenario makes you feel more secure: dealing with a company that has a share capital of 10,000 PLN or one with 1,000,000 PLN? Which of these companies is more likely to ensure the solvency of its business partners?

To check the share capital, visit the eKRS earch engine of the Polish Ministry of Justice and enter debesto’s KRS number: 0000875850. You will see the basic data of the company. To view all current details, select “Informacje aktualne” (Updated information).

In a PDF document, in column 8, you can find the current share capital of debesto, which is now PLN 3 570 000,00.

Additionaly, the KRS report search engine allows you to find detailed annual financial reports.

Check news about debesto in media

debesto has been present on the Polish market for over a decade. However, we understand that searching Polish media pages might be challenging for someone from outside Europe. We’ve prepared a few external links for you where you can quickly and easily confirm that debesto is not a scam.

Moreover, we have a real impact on the fenestration industry in Poland, and our company’s ambitious plans have attracted interest from external investors.

Does anyone really import windows through debesto?

As you can verify in the registries, we are a legitimate company. We have been in the window market for over 10 years (formerly known as BestOkna.pl) and specialize in exporting windows. The first order from debesto to the USA arrived on August 16, 2016, as our windows reached New Jersey by ship – covering a distance of 4160 miles. Today, you can order them to any location in the USA!

However, we understand you may have concerns about whether debesto is familiar with the U.S. window market and can deliver real value, based on our knowledge of the needs of American construction companies.

Refferals from U.S. construction companies

You might think, “Ok, I see what is on the website, but I’m too far away to see whether this involves real people and real business cases.”

How to ensure debesto sells high-quality windows?

As we mentioned referrals, we can also connect you with U.S. construction companies, allowing you to visit their job sites where European windows from debesto have been installed.

Another way to inspect the quality of our windows, with very low financial risk, is to order a window sample. You can receive:

  • a window corner sample
  • a small window
  • a full-sized window
  • a glazing set

Such a trial order can help you familiarize yourself with debesto, obtain a window for inspection, and even test the installation process before deciding to purchase all the windows.

Should you choose debesto? Yes and no

Maybe you’re asking yourself: Are they trying to convince me to deal with them by telling me all this? Yes and no.

Yes, we have experience in exporting windows. Yes, we do deliver value to the business of American construction companies. Yes, we are a reliable European window agent.

However, we want to be transparent and honest with you, keeping your profitability in mind. Maybe you’re now considering another option, perhaps another window manufacturer from Poland.

If so, we don’t insist that you choose us. We care that you make an informed decision for your business. So, we recommend reading an article about the European window production chain to help you make an informed decision. Have a great adventure with European windows!
