2005-12-01 23:24:40   Mr Lynn Christensen and Mrs Laura Christensen, the owners, are among the nicest people I've ever met. —GrahamFreeman

2006-08-10 12:12:39   This is definitely a very friendly, helpful, and efficient place to do business. —ErikAnderson

2006-08-10 17:40:07   Lynn Christensen has won an Enterprise voters choice award for "friendliest business owner" or something to that effect. I think he's won it more than once. He is a really nice guy. —JanelleAlvstadMattson

2006-11-08 12:43:16   I always go here for notaries and I've been here once to get a shipping quote. Everyone is extremely helpful and friendly. It's good to see that the owner's won awards to attest to that fact. Great guy. —LiRic

2006-11-08 16:48:16   These folks have been in business here for ages. We shipped business packages so we were in there at least once a week. Lynn and Laura are always friendly and helpful (they own the place) but their workers are real nice too so they must be nice people to work for. It's a great place to mail stuff and they have boxes,tape, greeting cards and all that stuff. Lynn says the PDQ stands for Pretty Darned Quick in spite of what anyone else thinks the D stands for. —BarbaraClowers

2007-05-19 04:32:16   I walked in with a broken bike frame around 4pm (think 2 1 foot on a side triangles). They packed so small I figured I could fit them in a standard box. The owner ran over to the bike shop, got me a old bike box (cheaper than a new one, not to mention reuse is better than recycling), then rebuilt the box to be about 2/3rds the size (again cheaper), packed it with peanuts, and sealed it up. Total cost was $18 and the box was delivered by 9:30 am then next day. Basically great service from great people. Highly recommended. —BillBroadley

2007-12-22 15:09:48   Outstanding customer service for years- these folks really know how to deliver! :-) Very professional, friendly, honest almost to a fault (if they think you can ship something more cheaply via the post office, they tell you), helpful even to last minute people like me who rush in stressed & worried & find their troubles being all eased by this great team. Really- you just couldn't ask for them to do it better & the fact that they are a very hands on Mom & Pop operation in Davis makes me all the happier to go there. —Angie (This review is the only edit this user account has made on the wiki.

2008-07-02 17:01:11   Great customer service saved me money! I brought in a large box that was going to cost $45 to send UPS - they repacked the box so it would be smaller and cost $28 less. When I suggested they keep the change from my $20 they didn't even take the tip and just said they do this all the time. —rachelss

2009-01-05 17:16:40   I've had a lot of good luck here. I went in once to send a package to Southern California, and after helping me box it up super small they sent me to the Post Office where it'd be cheaper. I've gotten a lot of fingerprinting done as well, and the guy who does it is nice and cute. Too bad I don't know his name. —ChristyMarsden

2009-02-09 03:13:02   I had my fingerprint done here the other day and also had to send a few things out. The staff here seems diverse and very friendly. I'll be returning if I have to send out any packages. Thumbs up! —TonyaNN

2009-02-10 17:25:42   Cool place, always a pleasure to do business there! —MasonMurray

2011-07-21 13:38:31   Went in for a Notary signature today. Fast easy. Really nice guy. Parking in front. $10 per signature is the going rate all over town. —KileyA

2012-11-01 09:38:56   I went there for the first time yesterday to send a fax. I had never sent a fax before and they didn't make me feel stupid, they were extremely helpful and explained the process and did it all for me. I wasn't even sure which part of the document to fax, told them what the person had asked for and they helped locate the right spot. I would whole-heartedly recommend them. Their price was way better than other places as well. Only $1 per page. —RG

2014-09-11 16:08:25   Extremely friendly, helpful and polite people at this business! I went in knowing next to nothing and was given very helpful advice that ended up saving me a LOT of money. Highly recommended!! —Chronoz
