Dear Bernice,

The following is a review of my experiences working with Navis. Moving is an emotional experience. It is even more so when one must downsize. How was I going to ship items to my daughter in the U.K?

Enter Navis Pack and Ship. Recommended to me by Gerine de Jong of Downsizing Divas, I dealt with Bernice Friedman who, with extraordinary patience, took me through all the forms and rules. The pick-up, including an Inuit sculpture from the restorer, went smoothly as did the safe arrival at my daughter’s house in Wales. She commented on the excellent packing. My children will use Navis when more things must go to the U.K. and Bernice will, I sincerely hope, look after them.

Thank you so very much, Bernice,

Marisa,

We want to let Navis know how pleased and grateful we are for the exceptional customer service we received from Marisa and the whole Navis team throughout the shipping process.

You deliver more than packages! You deliver exceptional customer care. When Navis first came to do the inventory, we saw firsthand how carefully you handled items and how conscientiously the items were identified, wrapped and prepared for transport. At every step, we experienced a level of courtesy and carefulness that was top notch.

We were very impressed with how Marisa kept us in the loop at every step and how carefully all the items were handled. Marisa is a pleasure to work with: she solved problems as they arose and was always friendly as she attended to all the details involved with bringing items across the border.

Navis really takes pride in the work they do and as customers we felt cared for. We felt we got exceptional value for the price and would gladly work with Navis again for anything we needed to ship, and heartily recommend Navis to anyone needing to transport items, especially art and precious heirlooms.

I could boast about my experience with Navis Pack & Ship in a three part essay but I will be brief. My wife is Canadian and we currently live in South Carolina, US. Her father passed away from cancer in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. We felt helpless because we could not return to Canada to gather his belongings and the man items she cherishes from her childhood.

I called Navis Pack & Ship and everything became a lot easier for my wife and me from there. Ray and Bernice are nothing short of amazing. High-quality business professionals at their finest. I cannot speak more highly of my experience.

Navis sent a crew to her dad’s condo in downtown Toronto, gathered all the belongings we asked them to, and took them to their warehouse to be palletized. From there I got a very detailed description of how to properly fill out the US Customs form and my items were packed and shipped. That simple.

Price was fair. The pallet arrived at my doorstep in approximately 5 days. Literally the most professional packing I have ever seen. Sturdy and clean. Everything was in pristine condition including a few valuable paintings.6-Stars.
