I just wanted to drop you a note to say how helpful and wonderful your drivers were on Friday. They were early for delivery and collection – which was a dream! Not only that but they were super friendly and quick.  I did think they might not receive quite as much praise as they should do – so please pass on my thanks.

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thanks for the equipment hire and the service we received from your company.
