Customer Comments About Our Antique Desks and Services

Dear Gavin and Kathi,

The chair was delivered safely and efficiently this morning and I am more than delighted with it. I might add that your website was extremely well laid out, items were beautifully photographed and the descriptive detail most informative.

Many thanks and all the very best for Christmas and the New Year.

Dear Kathi,
We have finally been able to unwrap the two desks provided by your fabulous company. Please know that the quality of the items far exceeded our expectations.
Dealing with you from the very beginning was a complete pleasure and we are so excited by the contribution to the decoration of our Denver Tudor home.
Thank you again for all you did to make this happen and know that we are fully satisfied with this exceptional purchase!

Hi Kathi,

The desk has arrived, and the transport company you used were very easy to deal with on the phone, and the delivery man was charming and very efficient.

The desk is everything that I was hoping for, and it looks very happy in its new home. You have a very happy customer.

Kind regards
Michael (Suffolk)
Dear Kathi
I am happy you delivered the desk, on time, it was as exactly as described, you stuck to the price on the Selling antiques web-site even though this was wrong (lower than the listed price) and I would be happy to buy from you again.
Best wishes,

Hi Kathi
I just wanted to write and say how delighted I am with the desk.
H&H did a great job on the delivery yesterday and it’s sitting in my newly refurbished study looking very smart.
Thank you very much indeed.

Gavin and Kathi,
The desk arrived safely this morning and it is gorgeous. Sue and I love it and we are very excited to display it in our home. Simon Hall did an awesome job with the crating and packaging.  Please let us know if you ever need a testimonial for your service and the quality of your antiques.
We are very pleased with this transaction.
Thanks for all of your help.

Dear Burrells Desks,
Just a note to let you all know that the fabulous French desk has been uncreated and set up in my make-shift study while we continue work on the old study.
It is an amazing piece of furniture and is everything your web-site said it was. The packing job was as exquisite as the desk - we almost hated to disturb it. Not a single scratch or dent in the contents.
Thanks so much to all at Burrell’s and Simon Hall who helped make this a wonderful snowy day in Delaware. I could almost care about shovelling the walks now that I have this new treasure.
With the greatest appreciation.

Hi Kathi
The table arrived on Monday and is lovely.
They had removed it from the crate when they delivered it in the van so I was nervous as I tend to like to remove them from crates myself as this process alone can be risky without care from labourers, but the under wrapping from so good by Simon Hall it looked like it could take a few knocks without issue.
It does not appear to have any damage or veneer issues, which were my concerns when hearing it was stored in a warehouse.
All well received thank you
Warm Regards

Hello Gavin
What a beauty!!
Thank you very very much.
It's exactly as you said. And then some.
I know my hub will love it.
Haven't had the big reveal yet as think will wait until painters leave today.
Hub is here after all so was able to sneak in the delivery without him knowing.
Again many thanks for sourcing such a wonderful desk!

Hi Gavin
I thought I would drop you a quick line to say how pleased I am with it!
It's always difficult to judge colour correctly from a photograph on a computer screen so there was a certain element of trepidation when I agreed to buy it without seeing it! I needn't have worried and it fits in perfectly.
Once again thank you.
Kind regards
Mark Taylor, (London)
Hi Kathi,
I wanted to let you know that the furniture has arrived, safe and sound. It looks beautiful, and we are very happy with it. The chairs are very sturdy, much more substantial than I expected, which is great.
Thank you so much.

Dear Kathi,
I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am with the desk.
Everybody who visits our home compliments and appreciates the desk. I absolutely love it and know that it will remain in our family for many, many years to come.
I am not the least bit offended by your request and would be more than happy to unequivocally endorse your company.
I wish all of my business dealings were equally satisfactory!!
All the best.
