Atropos Antiques

"We at Atropos Antiques of Devon are specialists in the buying and selling of museum furniture, especially antique multi drawer collectors cabinets, and have done so for over forty years. Our customer base is from all over the world and the careful and efficient transportation of these rare and valuable items is always a worry. Having tried many different services over the years I am very happy to have found Gloucester Freight. They have taken the pain and concern out of this process and have never let us down. From the moment of contact they are fast and fastidious with collecting, packing, relevant documentation and processing the items through airports and road to the final destination. They are competitive with pricing but most importantly one can rest assured that the delivery will be quick, safe and straightforward. I am happy to commend Gloucester Freight to those wishing to export to the world."

"Extrucut Aluminium ( Die Division ) always try and use local suppliers / tradespersons. So when I found Gloucester Freight Services in Waterwells, it made sense to try them. I have found them to be very helpful and communications are very easy and quick. We work on a tight deadline and I only have a 2 hour timeslot for pickups. Jon and James always keep to their promise and collect on time. I originally asked for a copy of the AWB to be sent to me so I can inform my customer, this is always executed by Jon or James normally the same day. Great job GFS."

David & Nadja

"Dear Jon and Dave, I thought I had written to say thank you WEEKS ago for all your hard work and patience in helping us to ship everything over to Sweden (see below) but I guess in the flurry of getting started here it slipped my mind. Apologies - everything arrived in one piece and good fortune brought us a Polish truck driver who pitched and helped us unload, in return for a cup of coffee and a bun! We can't thank you enough for your help and so far things seem to be working out well in my new job and our house 200 miles further north - I hope all is good with you and that business is thriving."

David & Nadja
