"They offer a money back guarantee giving you 28 days to change your mind (although reading between the lines, this is highly unlikely given their excellent deals).
"This is an exemplary website which has all the information that you need clearly laid out. Apply for an instant quote online. The step-by-step guide lets you create your own cover. Should you need to talk to someone, a number of the staff at Musicguard are musicians themselves and so fully understand the situation."
