Hey, I didn't know you also wrote for DigitalRev! Send the dudes & dudettes of DigitalRev TV my way some time, would be fun to meet them. I'm sure they'd be willing to come to Amsterdam again (I missed them last time).

Capture more of what you're shooting for!

Really pleasant surprise yesterday after finding Connollys Timber on Google and then checking them out on Facebook. We drove across to their showroom (easy parking, always good with a speedy four year old and a 7 month old and his pram!) We had in our head what we wanted, based on a few friends that had said what they thought would look good. Craig at Connollys explained all about what we had chosen and why a different type of timber might be a better choice. He took the time to help us choose, explain measurements and what we'd need, and then help us understand what we'd have to do to prep the boards and which sealant did what and how to apply etc. We left with all the info we'd need to make an informed decision (..and with my 4yo having had a turn on their pinball machine! He was one happy kid) ..and have subsequently placed an order for the timber we need. Customer service is largely void in this day and age, and having experienced the level of customer service that Connollys provide, even before we'd agreed to purchase anything was truly refreshing! I will follow up this post with another on how the rest of the job goes. Thanks Connollys!
