Just a short message to say that I was very pleased with the service when I sent some presents from Odessa to an address in Nikolaev recently. The driver even arrived at my hotel early, spoke good English, and was very polite and accommodating. Within a couple of hours I was able to ring my friend in Nikolaev to find she had received the goods. I use your service regularly, and always I am a very satisfied customer.
