Contacted me every week to keep informed of progress.
This was a bit too much to be honest as I was on top of the purchase.
An email would have sufficed.

We paid the top 1.5 % for what turned out to be a pityful excuse of customer service. Will never use them or recommend them to anyone - cheaper options out there. Dont waste your money on them, youll likely be very disappointed.
