This morning I called, desperate, for repair to our stair lift. Your outstanding technician, Collin, arrived within an hour - was kind, courteous, professional.....and fixed the problem quickly. This is the second time we have used you for service - the other technician was Ryan, and he was just as efficient and kind as Collin was. I was so very impressed and wanted to take the time to thank you. Your receptionist, Lacey, also presented herself as kind and very helpful. Customer service is so important and it is obvious you have a great team who understands that concept very well! Good job!
