admiral trailers

Hi, I have been trying to contact Chris at Admiral trailers without any success
I have emailed and telephoned their contact details on their website but have got no answer. Does anyone have an alternative number or know why there is no reply (have they gone out of business etc)? I need to order some parts from them.
Thanks

I've had to contact Admiral a few times and found them difficult to get hold of, as they're generally always busy. This time of year especially. All I can suggest is that you keep trying.

A good company to deal with once you get through.

You may be having trouble getting hold of them as they are currently in Liquidation.

Thanks for that, I was starting to think that might be the case.Does anyone know where they bought the parts from or did they fabricate all the parts themselves?

Did that happen recently? I spoke to them last back in the early summer.

Most trailer parts suppliers should be able to provide parts, just make sure you give them the exact measurements (box section size & thread size for u-bolts etc)

Just sorted it all out with RPH leisure in Nottingham, they will replicate the original axle and fixings plus the other bits I needed. Thanks for the replies.

Just a few weeks ago as far as I am aware

Whoa, that was a close one. I had a trailer on order from them, but they kept delaying saying they couldn't get axles. When I spoke to the axle supplier, they were strangely coy and wouldn't talk to me. Now I know why!

I believe Exe Leisure took them for allot of money when they went under. It a shame because they were good trailer and nice people to deal with. Under if they will set up again next week like Exe leisure did.

Erin, do you still need a trailer? if so give me a shout.

All sorted now thanks. I've let Osprey supply one. Few quid more, but simplest option given the circumstances.
