I continue to trust my shipping with Barton because not only are they professional, knowledgeable, friendly and courteous, but when problems arise (as they often due in the shipping industry) Barton always solves the issues in a timely manner, even when the time difference between UK and US can cause days to waste quickly. I continue to trust Barton for all my container shipping needs. Thank you for always doing your best and for all you do to make my shipping as easy as possible, always.”

Always on time, always helpful. They inform me if I need to get anything that is required from me, in terms of documents and related paperwork. I am happy to recommend them anytime. I do not need to worry about the paperwork, packing, etc. because they arrange everything for me. Only a pleasure to use them.”
