What our customers have to say

What Our Customers Have To Say

“I had a package of original documents which was picked up in our Port Coquitlam office on a morning run, and had to be delivered to another firm in Victoria the following morning ASAP. FedEx couldn’t guarantee a delivery time and our usual in-town courier service couldn’t guarantee it would arrive the next day. Dye & Durham Victoria office called me the same day the package was picked up to ask if it could be delivered now, as it had already arrived in Victoria. Same day delivery to the Island is pretty good, I think!”
~ F. Hewitt - Garton & Harris
