Purchasing your Equipment
We are supported by retailers through the UK who can demonstrate and supply Vixen equipment. When you have made a decision on the models you are interested in, contact us by email email@example.com or phone 01582 726522 listing your requirements. We can answer any product related questions you have and put you in contact with your nearest Vixen stockist. In addition we have on-site testing facilities for many products in the Vixen range. Please contact us before visiting to make sure we have the equipment of specific interest in stock.
