    Dear James,A very belated ‘thank you’ for the bookcases. They’re beautiful. The driver was also excellent. He phoned the day before, arrived promptly and brought the bookcases into the house with good grace!
  • John Blackburn,
    Hello James, a short note to say thanks for altering and storing our bookcases - the one you altered to 111mm fitted perfectly, with quite literally a couple of mm to spare.
    The delivery guys were 1st rate too.
    Many thanks,
    John
