Thank you for attending to our needs out at YVR. The client was very happy with the service your technician Steven provided. Personally, I was also pleased with all communication I had with him. Will you kindly pass that along to him? Going forward, we would like a quote from TransCold to perform regular maintenance on the coolers at YVR.
