Dear Sirs, We have just purchased our first narrowboat from Mr Phil Bassett (Grand Union) and felt we had to send you our feedback. From our initial inquiry Phil was courteous, informative and quick to respond to making our first viewing appointment. We had two viewings in total and I cannot praise Phil enough for his salesmanship. He took every question we had seriously, following up each inquiry quickly, sometimes having to liaise with the owner. He obviously has a good professional working relationship with the marina that the boat is moored at which made our purchase even easier with any further questions. We originally had a one twelfth share in a narrow boat for four years in total but always knew we would purchase our own, visiting a number of brokers within a radius of about 80 miles. Initial response from many was flimsy with hardly any followup and the quality of the boats at times was questionable for the price and we had doubts as to whether offers were in fact relayed to the owner! How refreshing to find Phil at Boatshed Grand Union who instilled confidence in us and made our buying experience so pleasurable, a feather in your cap.

I first came across Simone when looking for a medium cruiser for a family of four. I found the boat I was after on your website and got in touch with her that day. She arranged a viewing that day and we were blown away by her knowledge and clear care for the vessel she was selling. Having undertaken this process before with another buyer, I was prepared to go through the tedious process of bid and counter bid to try and arrive at a price that was suitable for both of us. But Simone was so honest and so clear, that I just told her what my 'honest' budget was. The following week Simone was in constant contact, telling me what forms I needed to get in, and what needed to be done administratively. It struck me that in an age when ‘every man is out for himself’ and genuine sales quality seems on the decline (and yes, I have been on the wrong end of that too) Simone stands as a beacon of decency and genuine customer care and satisfaction. She is not only a credit to your company, but to herself and indeed all the true boaters out there who have their name too often sullied by the minority. Boating for me has always been about helping each other out when we need it, and never doing disadvantage to another,treating one as one would like to be treated. Those two rules have stood me in good stead; she exemplifies them and has single handedly revived my faith. She is a credit to the boating world, Boatshed UK and herself.

"From start to finish Boatshed provided an excellent service. From the initial visit, subsequent advice, photographic support and website platform it could not have been more easy. In addition regular visits by the representative to the boat for viewings as well as to allow engineers to gain access (I live 3hours away from the berth) were a great help. Finally advice in negotiating with the buyer and drawing the deal to a closure was achieved professionally and knowledgeably. I would use Boatshed again."
