First class service!

I bought a Hibachi for a gift and had questions before hand, which were promptly answered thanks to the chat option on the website. The package was then lost in transit but thanks to Claire, she kept me constantly informed with the investigation as well as having a contingent plan in case I didn't get the package on time. Unfortunately the package was ultimately deemed missing and Claire sent through another overnight shipment to ensure I got it on time to give as a gift. Blown away by the customer service! Great communication and care was given throughout. We'll definitely buy from here again.
