Your company recently handled a move for my family. Our movers were Kenny and Hector. I wanted to pass along what a pleasure it was to work with these two professionals. I have moved several times as part of my government employment and these guys were the best, most professional gentlemen I have had handle a move. You have two really good employees and representatives for your company and I wanted to pass along my praise for these two guys.
