"I used this place years ago to pack and ship some over-shopping I did while on vacation in Cape May. They were friendly, efficient, and they got my things to me in good shape.
This last trip, I suggested them for my friend from No. Ireland, as she had a lot of gifts to ship back home. The place warned us it would be expensive, and it was. My friend could have bought extra suitcases and shipped the goods in them for a whole lot less. Food for thought if you're trying to decide between the two options.
This place is a little difficult to find. It's a self-storage facility kind of off the road, so if you're not paying attention, you can easily pass it - which we did. If you start in Cape May, and end up in Villas, you've gone too far! *l* I'm not sure how to describe it, but the two people working there took a little while to warm up after some awkward standing around and waiting for someone to speak to us. They weren't very informative of what they needed from us once they found out the package was going overseas. (Not all of us are savvy on the ways of overseas shipping!) It would have been nice for them to say something like, "Ok, you're shipping all this stuff from here to such-and-such... we're going to need an itemization of contents and their costs" - and anything else they would have wanted from us. Thank goodness we happened to ask a question about it before they had wrapped everything up, else, we'd have had to unpack everything to make the list for them. Eventually, after a while, they became more friendly. To be fair, we did come in at the last part of their day, and kept them after closing... but still... it would have been nice to have the customer service repartee from the get-go.
Like I said, this place did a good job for me years ago. This time? Maybe not so much. They wrapped everything up so quickly, I had wondered if it was all secure at the time. I decided to let go of my worries and put faith in the fact they did this kind of packing all the time, and I should just let them do what they do. But, my intuition ruled out and my friend says one of her items was broken upon arrival. Given all that was packed, and how far it had to go, that's actually a good ratio. But, I'm sad for my friend, and I hope that when she contacts the business, they will do her right as the package was insured. Given her strong accent, and unknowing ways of dealing with this type of situation, (from overseas, no less!) I can only cross my fingers."
