Steve, June 2019

Just wanted to drop you a short note to say a ``BIG THANK YOU`` for the care you have taken over my purchase on Monday of (lot 255) - they arrived early this morning and it was obvious that you had taken great care with the parcel wrapping and organised the shipping super pronto. A service you should rightly be proud of - I'm very pleased with the little chaps and would not hesitate to purchase through your auction again. Thank you so much for the excellent service throughout. Best wishes

Mrs C - July 2019

Can I thank you for some great items and great service - if only all auctions houses were as efficient as yourselves. Many thanks, Nick

Nick - Feb 2020

Could not fault the service or delivery promise. Our sale and subsequent post and packing was beyond reproach. In comparison to other auction houses the cost was economical and fair. So very well done from two very delighted customers.
