Hi everyone at Kivells,

May I just congratulate your staff on the best service I have ever had from a UK auction house. The item I purchased has been invoiced promptly, paid for and the postage service arranged. The item has arrived with no fuss but at an excellent price for the service provided. I wish everyone there, all the best, and wish your company every success in the future.
