Their ability to be flexible with us was a huge feature for us. We were the first to come in with 16,000 items and make them an extension of our warehouse. They were great with it.

Allen is flexible and was willing to work with us as we grew. We developed a great rapport, and they became an extension of our operations. I’m able to deal directly with the leaders, and I know I can get what I need by making a phone call to one of them.
