Hi Rebecca,

Thanks for the note, and yes everything has arrived and all is good.

As for feedback on your services, well, all I can say is that everything went very smoothly; the guys who collected my stuff were great and very helpful, and the guy at this end brought it all indoors and was great as well.

One aspect of your service which does need addressing is your packing of my speakers, my paintings and my three instruments.

Which was "Awesome"

The boxes you made to size, the interior packing and construction was excellent, and the V-shaped corner protectors you affixed to some other boxes was also much appreciated.

All in all, a totally painless and stress-free move.

11 out of 10 :) Thanks Rebecca

Hello Ray:

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the outstanding job and service your company provided in packing and shipping to me, in Los Angeles, the contents of my parents home in Toronto. I have just completed the task of unpacking all of the shipped goods and I marvel at the meticulous care you took into packing each and every item. The expensive art work and rare clocks were superbly crated/protected and  and even some of my less valuable household goods received their own boxes with multiple layers of protection.

Besides the packaging itself I also want to thank  you again for making the international component of this shipment seem effortless. Your knowledge of the customs and clearance aspect of this shipment made for a smooth importation.

Please use my name as a reference for any future prospects/customers who, like myself, found you online but need assurance of your reliability, professionalism and expertise.

Just a quick note to say we have unpacked our last box -- the very large artwork box -- and everything arrived in perfect condition. Our daughter is thrilled with her table and chairs and know that was not an easy delivery. We are so impressed with the packing and your service!

The (stained glass) windows arrived in perfect condition, and so did the Indian blankets.  The best packing job I've ever seen, even after 35 years in the moving business.  Thank you everyone.

Mel and I would like to personally thank you and your company for the treasure you delivered to our home from Virginia to Colorado. The two men you sent to unpack the cabinet and bring it into the house were fantastic. They were  extremely careful with the 100-year-old cabinet and were as careful setting it up in the display room my wife had set up for the new addition.

The movement of this antique from Virginia to Colorado is a loss for Virginia but, a beautiful addition to our home and Colorado. The most important thing is my wife is absolutely excited for the cabinet's safe arrival. She was sure some of the antique glass would not survive the cross country trip.

Please extend our sincere thanks to the delivery and unpacking crew here and the packing crew at your end. It has been a wonderful experience working with you. Thank you for the  wonderful experience.

I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that the shipment I sent to Walter (last name removed) in Fresno, CA was received.  Walter called me last night and told me the following:

“although it was 100 degrees in Fresno, I put on dad’s leather jacket, his ring and uncle Chuck’s hat and sat on that pallet in the garage looking through the scrapbook you made of the Christmas you and dad spent with us.  I just sat there and cried and cried.  I had to call mom to come over to give me some moral support!”

Nathan, I just wanted you to know what part you and your team play in people’s lives.  As you know, most of the items were not of so much monetary value but so much more.  Walter also told me that the packing job, especially on the planes, was outstanding.  He was impressed with the quality of the job.

I hope maybe this message does a little to brighten your day.  Thank you and your team for your professional and outstanding work and brightening the lives of others.

Best regards,

What a pleasure to do business with people who do what they say they will do when they say they will do it.  My furniture was delivered in Kentucky on Thursday in perfect condition.  I highly recommend Navis and appreciate the care given to my shipment.
Thank you, Liz Birkenmeier

Dear Ray:
The specialized box you prepared for us made its inaugural run last December.  We are truly grateful for the work you did for us...What a pleasure it is to have the security and ease of transport for our large crucifix.  Using the case you made to custom fit and safely carry the large crucifix to different parts of the city has been a Godsend.

Shipping a crucifix was awkward and challenging, and we worried about possible damage.  We now have complete peace of mind that the crucifix will arrive at its destination intact and be returned to us in the same condition.

It was equally a pleasure working with you as you understood what we were looking for and delivered more than what you promised.

With thanks and appreciation,

Good morning, 

Vance’s household items were delivered yesterday, and everything appears to be in perfect condition, and he is extremely happy to have all his possessions with him again. 

You did an outstanding packaging job, one my father would be proud of (he uses more bubble wrap than anyone I’ve ever known, and takes great pleasure in my difficulty in getting things unwrapped!), and I wanted to thank you for the excellent service.

We will most certainly use your services again, should we need to ship more household goods or other large items.  It was a pleasure doing business with you!

Hello, George - (Navis Pack & Ship in Halethorpe/Baltimore, MD)

Just a quick follow up note to let you know that the roll top desk arrived at the YRC terminal in Wheeling on Monday morning.  I picked it up yesterday afternoon, unpacked it today, and am happy to report that all is in good order as far as I can see.  Your crew did such a superb job of wrapping, packing, and boxing the desk that I think it would have been virtually impossible for it to have gotten damaged in transit.  That said, I will not hesitate to use or recommend the services of Navis Pack & Ship in the future.

Thanks again to you and your crew for providing such great service!!  
Kind regards,

Hi John and Nicole,  (Navis Pack & Ship in Pleasanton, CA)

I received your shipment yesterday and I just wanted to say I was very impressed by how well the pallets were packed. I didn't know some of the things you used even existed! Cushion pads, cardboard separators, bubble wrap covered with clear plastic then black plastic over everything to protect it. Great job!

I want to let you know that you have an extraordinary employee in Portland Oregon.

Kiyomi Shimada helped us ship a piece of furniture that has been in our family for more than 70 years and has huge emotional value.  She was very professional, pleasant and a real joy to work with.

It was an unusually positive experience.  Thank you.

Melissa - I was an automotive engineering manager at a fortune 200 company for 16 years. I worked extensively with our logistics department. I began Troy Gymnastics 5 years ago. 3 years ago, I left engineering, and my gym became the largest gymnastics facility in Michigan. A couple of months ago, I wanted to ship a trampoline from FL to my facility. I called my auto contacts. A customer recommended you guys. You blew them out of the water price-wise, and your service was excellent. I am in the service industry and appreciate it very much when it is great. I will be calling again.

Hi Jo Ann,

I wanted to let you know that our dollhouse arrived in Massachusetts in perfect condition!

I wanted to thank you and your team for your excellent service and responsiveness. As you know, that dollhouse took me many hours to build and was extremely delicate. I appreciated the care and attention your team gave to thinking through how to design and build the crate and the bracing to keep it secure.

I also appreciated the way you jumped right in when there was a dispute with the local shipper regarding whether or not the hydraulic lift was included in the service. As soon as you were made aware of the problem you immediately contacted the local shipper and resolved it.

Your prices were very fair, your packing and shipping service was excellent and the human service to guide our precious cargo from end to end was extraordinary.

The next time we need to ship any goods we will call you immediately and I would be pleased to refer you and your company to others.

Jo Ann,

Just to let you know that we received our shipment yesterday as scheduled. 

I cannot thank you enough for the ease of working with you and your company.  Working with someone that we simply “found on the internet” made us a little apprehensive, but your ongoing communications and professional manner of doing business gave us a feeling of comfort.  You took care of everything just as promised.  We will definitely recommend you to others who have similar packing and shipping needs in your area. 

Thanks again.  May you, too, have a wonderfully blessed day!

Peter, breakfront cabinet arrived safely this AM.  Fabulous packing job!  I am a museum conservator by trade, for over 30 years now and you surely have ex-musuem staff on board.  It took me hours to unravel, but also have enough clean packing materials for my paintings and works of art until I retire.  Your packers know their stuff.  I would not hesitate to recommend Navis to any of my dealer and collector clients.  Will also email Stenella Antiques in PA with similar praise.  Thanks also for guiding me through the complicated world of cross border shipping.

Thanks for the outstanding job you and Jacksonville Navis Pack and Ship did in moving two pieces of furniture from our home in Florida to relatives in Texas.  We appreciate the fair price you gave us (which you held to throughout), that you showed up on time to pick up the furniture and delivered it on the promised date to our relatives’ home.  The men who handled the furniture at both ends were extraordinarily courteous and professional.  The furniture arrived without a scratch and, as promised, they put it exactly where our relatives wanted it (second floor no problem).  The next time we have a need for moving a few items or many we will go to Navis without hesitation!
