They are certainly still trading.  There opening hours are 10am - 6pm UK time.  You can rig up any PSU to test if the A1200 and components are still working.

If you get a MorphOS system you should be able to read the old Amiga hard drives with it anyway but getting data off any floppies is a different matter.

Correct.  I just ordered an Indivision ECS from AmigaKit.com and the order updates directed to amigakit.leamancomputing.com.
