As we all know…it all comes from the top….a happy team equals happy customers.

Every time we deal with English Woodlands the level of service is exceptional. The staff are eager, willing & knowledgeable. As a company they should be proud of what they achieve.

I did a video selection call with the team a few weeks ago and I was genuinely surprised at how well this works. The process was easy and efficient, and all of the boards were laid out in preparation for the call. I live and work quite a long way from you guys so I generally only drop in when I am passing. On reflection I think that the video call works really well, and for me personally, it actually works better than seeing them on site. Both my recent orders have probably been larger than they would have been if I had been there in person. I’ll still drop by for a rummage in the stack though.
How you have dealt with lockdown and social distancing deserves congratulations, and in my opinion video selection should remain a permanent feature of how you work.
