I just want to say thank you so much for all your help this year and just want to say I really appreciate it all and I hope you have had a wonderful year as well. It has been a dream working with you and you have been fabulous!!
I just wanted to say thank you for the items you delivered to us for our event this week, everything was lovely.
It has been a pleasure to use Allens Hire, I know I kept adding and changing the order and you were so lovely about it! The delivery drivers were great too, very helpful – and they collected the items this morning before we even got there – wonderful!
Great service all round and we look forward to using you again in the future.
Thank you for the glassware hire this weekend. We had a lot of comments on how lovely it was and it really finished off the look of the party. Also, really pleased with the delivery and pick up - super easy and very efficient!
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping us out on this event - we really appreciate your brilliant service and assistance. It's always a pleasure working with you and the Allens team.
Allens Hire were great and the chairs we hired were a lovely addition to the day. Thank you so much for supporting . . . with this very special wedding.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the all round outstanding service you provided last week in assisting me with my table hire order! I’ve used Allens a few times and am always so impressed with the high level of service you provide. Thanks also to the wonderfully helpful delivery drivers who assisted me this morning.
Keep up the great work!
You have an excellent new online ordering system, which will be very useful for us.
Everything went really well over Christmas, you guys were great.
What an absolutely fantastic customer experience!! I had to rent bar fridges at extremely short notice for a mess function and Allens well and truly stepped up to the plate. A very friendly and efficient service with very reasonable prices. Kirsty, the sales administrator from the Southampton branch especially went above and beyond to help me out.... I would rate 6 stars if I could and Allens will 100% be my first port of call in future!
. . . Just wanted to say thank you, tables and chairs were perfect.
. . . whilst I’m thinking about it, just want to thank you SO much for all your help. It’s a total joy working with you, and I really appreciate the lengths you go to in order to make my job easier. You really make a difference!!!
