" We accept Visa, Delta, Visa Electron, MasterCard, Eurocard, American Express, Switch, Maestro, Solo, cheques or postal orders (denominated in Pounds Sterling) and also Paypal ( more research will be needed which card service is suited to our needs)

We would be most grateful if you could give us a quote of how much a website with the above specifications would cost and how long it would take to finish? If you could let us know of any other similar projects that you have worked on that would also be of big help.

We look forward from hearing from you in the very near future.
