Much appreciated, Barbara! I received an email from my Gran yesterday and wanted to pass along her message.
“Dear Cameron, If you do speak to the company, please convey to them that the staff sent to collect the items handled everything in a competent manner and did their best to secure the canoe in a way which would not damage it. They were all friendly and helpful and the two who took the canoe down from being slung under the roof trusses exercised extreme care not to scratch the varnish whilst lowering it. In fact the one gentleman in particular was amazed at the beautiful workmanship and said the canoe should be in a museum. I am just so happy it is going to you and the family, and Bob would have been too.
I really appreciate the care shown for the canoe, and all of your assistance to date!
