I couldn't find the canopy on the website but after calling the staff found the one I needed. It arrived quickly and was easy to fit, the only thing I would complain about would be the cost as it was more than half the price of the umbrella.
Worst customer service ever
What was perceived to be a high quality umbrella broke well within the warranty period after only been used a a handful of times. Shelta no longer have an office in Victoria, so getting any resolution was almost impossible. The retailer we bought the umbrella from did everything they could, but it still took Shelta 3 months to agree to have the umbrella repaired. I would NOT recommend buying a Shelta product.
Neat and super compact umbrella
I bought a Shelta umbrella as it would have to be the most compact umbrella on the market and fits neatly in a handbag. It’s also very lightweight and dries quickly.
My umbrella cover fell apart. No replacement provided.
I called Shelta to a replacement. I never heard back from them. Not worthwhile spending money on their umbrellas as no customer service exists in my opinion. Shops told me that replacement covers are available, but when I asked them to get one they did not assist either. I was not able to get a replacement cover. I will need to find a brand who offers me customer service, also after sales service.

Disgusting warranty repair
I purchased a Savannah umbrella from an outdoor furniture company and after 11 months it snapped. Waited 4 months for repair and the local service company has told me that they were sent the wrong replacement part 3 times.
This is apparently a very common problem with Shelta and its very poor after sales service and support.
Outdoor dining chairs breaking down after normal usage outdoors
We bought a beautiful 7 piece outdoor dining suite for our deck area. It has the modified timber look slats on the chairs. This modified wood is supposed to be made especially for our Australian harsh summers. After only two years, nearly all the slats are breaking and cracking when we sit on the chairs. I spoke to their customer service team member who said I could buy replacement slats for $ 15 each. I don't believe that a $1000 dining suite, made for our harsh weather, should be breaking down after such a short time. I asked them to provide...the slats free of charge but they refused. They seem to know that the modified timber really doesn't last as long as it should, otherwise they wouldn't be on selling slats for $15 each....... Obviously this modified timber is not made for our harsh summers.
Questions & Answers
All the very positive reviewers are first timers for product review whilst the less than positive reviewers have a bit of a track record of other reviews for other products. Is George still self promoting?
Alex2001, i did not do a product review - I did a service review! Not certain what your concern is, but I had a very positive experience.
Finding our cantilever shelter umbrella is hard to wind up and down. Can you please advise what can be done?
