What our customers say about us:

Mrs. Mary Duke Biddle Trent Semans(We recently completed a six-month job distributing the estate of Mrs Mary Duke Biddle Trent Semans [pictured at left, photo credit: UNCSA.edu], philanthropist and granddaughter of James B. Duke and great-granddaughter of Washington Duke, energy and tobacco giants who helped start Duke University.  We were responsible for carefully packing and shipping her entire estate all over the U.S. to her children and grandchildren.  Here's what, as a family, they had to say about our service:)

To Whom It May Concern: 

We are writing to commend the work performed by Navis Pack and Ship during a recent contractual arrangement for a large estate involving furnishings from several houses.  The packing, storage and delivery process had so many hands involved in locating the large number of selected items for each of many individuals. The delivery of the material as well as the large volume of items involved made the work very complicated.   The activities were professionally coordinated and executed from start to finish by the team at Navis.  Packing of fragile tables, china and glass items as well as crating of paintings were carefully performed. The staffs in Virginia, S.C., N.C. and Maryland as well as the Navis Teams in Idaho, California, Colorado and Oregon carefully unpacked all the items with offers to place them wherever we wanted them to go.  All of this was done quickly and efficiently.

Communications about delivery times were by email initially and then as the time approached they called us by telephone to confirm the items to be delivered as well as arrival times for the truck.  Also importantly, the personnel in all locations communicated well and were pleasant and courteous.  We highly recommend Navis Pack and Ship for the care they took with art work, antiques, and furniture in packing, shipping and unpacking.

Thank you for the tremendous job you did on our shipment. We couldn't be happier with how well these items were packed and the care that this shipment received.  We would recommend Navis Pack & Ship to our surrounding business associates to utilize your expertise. Thank you for your time and dedication. 


I wanted you to know how impressed we were with the way the sofa was crated, packed and shipped. By far, it was the very best packing job we have ever seen. I really appreciate the professional job and will certainly use your company in the future and will highly recommend your services to anyone that is looking for a shipper.

Thanks again,

Special thanks to Navis.  My job is very hectic and sometimes I can't get to everything.  I've dealt with companies that wouldn't call me back, no reply to emails, forget which phone number I asked them to call.  It was a chore just to get a hold of them to PAY!   

Navis kept me informed the whole way, moving the transaction right along and just like that, I have my beautiful compotes!  

Will definitely do business with you again.  Thank you!

I received my furniture yesterday, and everything was in order. Please tell the team they did an excellent job in packing the furniture.

Thanks again, Regards, K Smith 

The pottery arrived this morning. Hurrah! Thank you so very much for your expert packaging. Secondly, you were extremely prompt in offering an estimate and I appreciated that you picked up the pottery from the auction home so expeditiously.

I have had shippers take 2-3 weeks to pick up and package merchandise that I purchased from an auction home.

Again, many thanks!
Warm Regards,
C Brennt

I just unpacked the last of my grandmother's furniture that you packed up and shipped out to me well over a year ago (it was stored in the garage while my house was under construction).  Thank you for doing such a fabulous job.  Each piece was wrapped with such care and everything arrived in perfect condition.  I was blown away by your efforts and I am so appreciative that Navis Pack and Ship played such a large role in preserving my grandmother's legacy.  I would recommend your company to anyone; if you ever need testimony from a satisfied client, please let me know because I cannot sing your praises enough.  And of course, feel free to use this email as feedback for your website.  I hope you are having a great summer and thank you again for doing your job so well.

I must tell you how pleased and impressed I am with the packaging that made it possible to ship that coffee table intact ( !) across Canada.  Even the staff at Global gathered around and admired the work.
My sincerest thanks to the people who took the time to package it in such a professional manner and in such a secure manner as well. It is a real treat to deal with a company who takes the time to take an interest in a customer.

I wanted to thank you for all of your hard work in packing up a very fragile TV and thus insuring its perfect shipping to us all the way across the US. You were kind enough to talk me thru the whole process and you were 100% right. I will be using you again and will tell everyone in our condo in San Francisco to use you.

Thanks again, 
Gary and Deb

Both shipments arrived in superb condition.  Nothing was broken or chipped.  Your packing job was outstanding.  During our 11 PCS moves within the states and overseas, we had never had a better packing job.  I simply cannot imagine how you could have done a better job.  Now all I have to do is figure out what to do with 11 30-gallon plastic bags full of peanuts….
If you ever need a testimonial from a previous customer, I would be pleased to give you a great one.  Since my mother-in-law lives in Downers, there is a good possibility that I will again call upon you to pack and ship some of her belongings.  If so, it would be a pleasure to have your company handle it.

I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you how pleased I was with the service you provided in packing & shipping my 3 pieces of antique oriental furniture. They arrived at the freight station in pristine condition. Your packing job was better than I could have hoped for, every part even hinges & handles, were so well protected. You made the entire transaction, almost effortless on my part. I had considered flying out to California & renting a box truck to drive the pieces home. That is how important they were to me. I was on pins & needles until they were unpacked, here, in my living room.  Thank you and if I ever have an opportunity to recommend your service, you can rest assured, I will give you an OUTSTANDING A+.

The shipment arrived at my Abu Dhabi home safe and sound.  I was able to track it all the way with the UPS system. Your packers are wonderful.  The delivery guy let one of the paintings fall coming out of the elevator and there was still no damage.  Thank you for all your kind assistance with this and my other shipments.  It’s a pleasure doing business with you.
