Welcome to the forum .Looks tidy, word of caution though. The guy has a few vehicles for sale (mainly vans) that makes him in trader. However, his ads all state private. I think that means if things go wrong his liabilities towards the customers is reduced. I was going to look @ one of his vans, until i saw that. put me off.
Good Luck
