There are those dealers who have been formed quite recently and who have not filed accounts at Companies House!Â Beware!
Unfortunately there have been a significant number of phone systems clients in the North West who were badly affected when one dealership simply disappeared overnight a few years ago â€“ this phone systems company had totally over-reached themselves with a fleet of salesmenâ€™s cars – all latest BMWsÂ and prestigious premisesâ€“ thus setting an image that they couldnâ€™t afford.Â Some of the leasing deals they got signed up were not squeaky clean â€“ they included call charges â€“ consequently when they went bust, their customers had their lines cut off by BritishTelecom for non-payment of rental fees.Â But fortunately there were well-established phone systems dealers in the area who were able to resolve most of the problems left behind by this unscrupulous businessman who had been running that enterprise.Â This guy did set up another similar operation not long afterwards!
