I just wanted to drop a quick note (from my desktop!) to say a huge thank you again to you and the team... From start to finish the customer service has been excellent, with a special thanks to Matt for bearing with me. It is really rare nowadays to come across a business that treats smaller customers with low value orders as importantly as they treat their larger clients. Really impressive and appreciated.
