I'm wondering what will happen with warranty claims for products sold prior to new owners?
Will the new owners be honouring warranty?

Hi Mr Coffe.
I can categorically say that any and all warranty claims (if any) will be dealt with in a swift and professional manner.
All we ask is a little patients as we both have "real" jobs at the moment so we may not be able to answer phones and emails, pm's etc immediately but we will get to you as soon as we can, communication is the key here.
Trust me when I say we are looking to build on an already wonderful product and business.
We are still trying to find our feet at the moment and wade our way through the government BS but with any luck things will start moving in a couple of weeks if not sooner.
Stay tuned

OK guys and Gals a little update to keep you all interested.
We have decided that a total makeover of the area we will use as the display area was in order.
This will set us back a couple of weeks from having anybody around but will be well worth it in the end.
In the meantime, things are progressing slowly paperwork wise but at a steady pace.
Ill keep everybody posted here and on Facebook as we move along.
