I’ve tried emailing them…
I’ve tried using their “online quote request”

I’ve tried emailing a contact I already had:
I’ve tried emailing another email address listed on their site:
Their website is difficult to reach:
Server not found
Even when you do reach their website, it looks pants and is difficult to navigate.
To further add insult to injury: All the phone numbers on their website are 0871 numbers charged at 10p per minute:
0871 231 1900
- Please note calls to this number will cost 10 pence per minute from BT landlines, calls from other networks and mobiles may vary. Calls may be recorded for training and quality purposes

I’m going to say no
They seem to leave me with only one option, which is to open a credit account with them:
Click here to open the credit application form, please then fill in all the details on the form, print it, sign it and fax it along with two trade references to 0871 231 1921. If you have any problems or queries, please call on 0871 231 1900.
Will anyone ever get back to me?
