I would like to confirm that the car has been delivered to me in Nairobi. Oh! It drives very well. Thanks a lot to you and your team for the wonderful service that I got. I was kept informed throughout the process. Should I (or relative/friend) need a similar service in the future, I will certainly get back to you. It was a pleasure working together.

I take this opportunity to thank you all for the excellent services provided during the shipping of my car during the months of June and July. I have used your company on two previous times but this last one was exceptional because of the advice received from Sudhir, I want to thank him for the free storage for the car before the next available ship so that the car arrives at the time I could be in Kenya. The car arrived in Mombasa on time and with no damages at all. Thank you once again Sudhir for the advice and exceptional services provided, I look forward to using your services again. I will recommend your company to my friends.

Thank you.
