You are a great little company and similar organisations could learn a big lesson from the way you do things.
It was such a pleasure dealing with your company
I asked if it could be delivered in a couple of weeks and immediately I was given a date which was adhered to (a rarity these days)
The stairs obviously fitted perfectly and exceeded our expectations with regards to quality and finish especially considering they were so reasonably priced.
Thank you so much for what can only be described as a first class service from start to finish.
