I was VERY nervous about shipping these 4th generation fragile Newel Post lamps from rural Az to Massachussets. I didn't have the thousands of dollars the "Art" shipping companies wanted. Gus's quote wasn't cheap but is was reasonable. Gus put me at ease from the start. He asked informed questions about the items that let me know he knew what he was doing. He personally packed them up and stayed with them for the entire trip. They arrived in great shape and he even unpacked them, inspected them with me and took out the packaging material. Gus is a gentleman who didn't laugh at how attached my sister and I are to these "girls". He treated us with kindness and understanding. He is clean cut and intellegent and handled the packages very gently. I am so happy to have "Cynthia and Penelope" home safe and sound! I wouldn't hesitate to have him ship anything for me in that nifty van of his. I think he should include a photo of his van with his quotes so folks can see what a smooth and gentle ride their precious cargo will be getting. Thanks Gus!
