Spreading The Word

Published: October/November 2013

I'm writing to inform and thank you about how pleased I am with my recent experience with your company. My boat was vandalized and seriously damaged on March 26, 2013, while on the lift at the slip at my condominium in Florida. In your office, a Mr. Jaime Medina handled my claim and Captain Ed Thomas with United Marine Services visited my damaged boat and also adjusted my claim. The courtesy they extended me, the punctuality with which Capt. Thomas visited, the manner in which the claim was submitted and payment made were altogether exemplary. I plan to make it my business to share this experience and my opinion of your company with fellow boaters, dock mates, and other boater friends at marinas I visit. And with all earnestness I wish to thank you for the quality of these individuals who represent you so well.
