“After having received the container with my household goods and personal effects in Lisbon, Portugal, arriving from Washington, DC, I’d like to inform you that my personal belongings arrived in perfect condition. I’d also like to state that I received excellent service from you from the very start as well as from your agent in Portugal, Galamas, when they delivered my container. Please accept my congratulations and appreciation.” – J. Daniel Quiroz Garcia, Embassy of Mexico
