I am writing to say thank you because i have been so impressed with your service. unfortunately, the first item arrived damaged. a straightforward telephone call to a friendly/helpful member of your staff and a replacement was sent within 10 days. i noticed that the title of the map had been incorrectly stated on the reprint. once again a telephone call to a friendly/helpful person and i was clear as to how things would be resolved. within 2 weeks a replacement has once again been received. and even yesterday evening somebody telephoned me to arrange the refund to my account of the carriage charge. my experience of using your service has been excellent. mistakes and problems happen in business all the time, but when you have an excellent customer service team who are keen to resolve matters to a customers complete satisfaction it makes such a difference. if other business took the same attitude as yourselves towards customer service it would make such a difference to them. i will definitely be using you again. and most certainly recommending you to others.
