"Yes, the air shipment has been delivered to our hotel to our satisfaction. So I would rate the service 5 out of 5.

I hope we get the same level of service once our sea shipment gets delivered. It is much bigger, 220 boxes vs. the current 7 J, and will likely take a lot more time and effort.

Thanks again for all the good service so far".
