Customers come first, that is the mantra by which the customer care team at Loading.es operates. With a selfless support team that offers personalized attention in Spanish, the company provides timely technical and commercial support at all levels. You can contact them by phone, email, Skype, ticketing system, or the online form. Live operators are available from 8.00am to 8.00pm, Monday to Friday. The average response time is about 30 minutes.
Although Loading.es offers some really good packages, it doesn’t match that with great usability. The site isn’t just outdated but is also non-responsive. Navigating wasn’t the problem, but comparing plans was. I looked at the cPanel too and felt it could have been much better. I hope they can reword the design, trim their tables, and offer multiple versions of the site including English.
