All was great the technician was really good and the event went well despite their (the clients) lack of organisation…
All went very smoothly and we were really impressed with your technicians who were quick, discreet and explained how the equipment worked very clearly. I would definitely use your service in future if I need AV equipment.
I spoke to Seamus yesterday to say how pleased we were with the service and goods you provided for our event. But I can reiterate that again here. Seamus was very patient and helpful with my many, many emails and questions and for that I am very grateful as he delivered exactly what we needed, even though it was last minute.I look forward to working with you again in the future.
I want to say a HUGE thank you to you and your guys for all your help over the last few months and especially last Wednesday and last night. You went over and above to make sure that our event was successful, and you and your teams were so generous with your time, expertise, and with the extras you were able to give us. Your team were smart, discrete and very helpful on-site.Thank you again very much for all you did.
