A few words from our customers…

I have had the sincere pleasure to have worked with the Thinnes Family since 1990. For over two decades, our firm has relied on Thinnes for our most-critical transportation demands. Time-sensitive deadlines, and meticulous follow through, are only a few of their many attributes.

I just wanted to reach out and thank you once again for coming to our rescue last Friday. When I walked in the office and was informed that our driver was not available, Becky had a panic look on her face. Not only did you take our Aptar load but you were able to shuttle to our local locations. This kept our suppliers running and allowed us to get parts back to Hoffer to ship out to customers.

In the two years that I have worked with them they have proved to live up to their “100% customer satisfaction guarantee”. They are professional, on-time, and their rates are the most competitive with what I have found for their type of service.

I’ve been in this industry for over 35 years and have used numerous transportation services and Thinnes Transport is among the best. They are the only transportation company I use for my local shipping needs.

I have found them to be professional, honest, dependable and eager to do what it takes to get the job done no matter how complicated. Their Customer Service “can do” attitude is truly a breath of fresh air.

Their drivers are pro-active, polite and courteous, providing good communication which results in reducing unnecessary delays and potential problems.

I want to take some time out to thank you and your team at Thinnes for your consistent support over the past year. Our freight is often time-sensitive and you have continuously gone beyond the call of duty to meet our requirements as a freight company. Because of your commitment to us, we want to extend this letter of appreciation.
