FEEDBACK FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

"Thankyou for the prompt service. The book came in excellent condition and your wrapping was superb! Thankyou again for outstanding service. Sincerely, Owen"

---------

"The book I ordered was sent in a very timely manner and I was updated as to it's shipping by email. It arrived within the time estimated and was VERY well wrapped and packaged so as to avoid any damage to the book in its long journey "down under" The books condition was exactly as described and in fact was much better than I was expecting for a second hand book. Overall I am very very satisfied with the service and the book I purchased from Capricorn books. From Richard, Queensland, Australia."    ---------

"I just received your shipment of Rien Poortvliet's The Farm Book. I am very pleased with this purchase. The condition of the book is like new, and your packaging a work of art. Quick delivery too."

---------

"I just wanted to send you a quick note, to thank you for sending over this book.  Not only is it in very good condition, as advertised, but the care that you obviously went to in wrapping and packing the book for shipment really stood out.  I have been collecting books occasionally for some years, and you might be surprised to see how shabbily many books are packaged for shipping.  The care that you took to do this right was really appreciated.  Similarly, voluntarily reducing the shipping cost speaks volumes about the person you are.  Nice to know that there are still people who believe in doing things right!

Much appreciated.  Thank you."

---------

"May I say what a professional service you provided.  Not only was the book securely wrapped in brown paper to prevent the binding from "working" during transit, it was also wrapped in bubble wrap, inside a bubble pack shipping envelope.

And it arrived in a timely manner!

I recently bought a book through a "name" competitor, and upon delivery, found the "bare" book floundering around loose inside the mailer!  Needless to say, if that is all they care about the value of a book, I shall not continue doing business with that vendor."

----------

"Thank You, Thank you......The fact that you know where your inventory is---communicate with your customers in an appropriately timed manner---ship when you say you will----and follow up on what you have done, puts you 4 steps ahead of either Amazon or Barnes and Noble....Keep up the good work.....I now have you in my bookmarks."

----------

"The Universal Airplanes book arrived a few days ago as advertised. It was so carefully packed that it arrived in perfect condition. It is as well researched as Sean Rossiter's previous book on the DeHavilland Beaver bush plane. I'm always interested in stories of Canada's marvelous practical aircraft and the bush pilots who fly them. Most of these books never seem to reach the States, but I have found some in Whistler or Calgary on ski trips over the last five years. I am pleased with your high level of efficiency, attention to detail, and keeping me informed of the book's mailing. Thank you"


----------

"Thank you very much for "Montreal in Evolution" and "Remembrance of Grandeur." Amazingly, the package arrived in Montreal one day after you shipped - all in plenty of time for my wife's birthday. I have never received books as well wrapped nor as promptly delivered as yours."

----------
