    Haven't been able to access the Towsure website all weekend - was wanting to check some prices. Given the current economic climate I wonder if there is a problem here, or is it just a somewhat problematic computer system / server crash?

    Anyone know if there's a problem and yet another casualty in the leisure industry?

    There are 2 Towsures - one is the lesiure products company, the other one does trailers and related items - not the same company

    Both. The .co.uk one is the trailer company - there's no problem with that one. The .com one is Towsure and it's been offline whenever we've tried it over the weekend. Perhaps just a server problem as we do not have any problems with other sites.

    Their website is still down. Just a thought Stagman, if you had accessed their website previously it may have been stored in your browser history thus coming up when you access it now, despite not being "live".

    Anyhow, hopefully just a server problem.

    :Eeek:

    I would doubt if Towsure have liquidity problems, accessory sales are good although our website is up and down like a yoyo.

    Towsure should be at the NEC, they usually have a large stand there.

    Let's be very careful here. This is how rumours start. Next thing you know is X, Y or Z have gone down the pan.
    I heard something like, "A lie can be 40 miles away before the truth has got his boots on".
    I'm trying not to sound bitter. But been there, done that.:Sad:

    Merely asking a question. Large companies generally have dedicated IT treams doing their websites, and are not usually offline (given that they sell a lot by mailorder) for a whole weekend at a time. Its a commercial company and these are bad times business wise, so that's all it is - a question. No doubt the IT team have had a weekend off and haven't noticed yet, but the question is very valid.

    Lets be careful to protect the right to ask a valid question here!

    Can only be a glitch, Towsure are at the NEC right next to us.

    Hi,

    Just a question why don't the people who are interested pick up the phone and ring the company.

    Just been on with no problem.
    It doesn't matter whether you put .com or .co.uk as it takes you to the same place!

    Same here: .co.uk or .com takes me to the same site. Towsure.

    Check the TIME and the DATE of the post and perhaps it'll all be a bit clearer as to why there was no point in "picking up the phone and ringing the company" - :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    The website was down all weekend - obviously, as I thought, no-one from their web dept works on weekends and obviously they don't need any mail order business over weekends. :Eeek:
