"There are logistical challenges involved for a Canadian consigning wine to a US auction but these were all handled most capably by the HDH team, with a minimum of bother for me.  I have been very impressed with the calibre of the HDH logistics staff and find them to be both delightful and professional to deal with.  My consignments to Chicago went very smoothly, with no problems of any kind.  I heartily recommend HDH and can assure any prospective consignor that this group really knows its business, even if crossing the US-Canada border is involved."

:: R. Ross, Toronto

"Well, I am finally getting around to dropping you a line to express how pleased I am with our recent transactions. From the time I first met you face-to-face at the Newberry Library Bordeaux Tasting to the correspondence I've had with you and Mr. Tim Hackett, our business dealings and relationship has been outstanding. Since my situation was a little more complex than others with my wine being in California and me living in the Southeast, many things could have gone wrong. However, you and your representatives were able to coordinate the contract, pickup, shipment, inventory, sale, and remuneration flawlessly. I received my checks on time as promised with all the correct details accurately listed. It truly was a pleasure to do business with HDH and you in particular. Please feel free to include me in your ever-growing list of satisfied customers who can provide reference to any potential consignee."
:: Don T., Huntsville AL

"Wanted to take a moment and thank you all. The three pallets arrived fine and I just finished checking everything in. You guys did a great job! Everything was packed well. Not one bottle missing or too many and everything as described. That kind of attention to detail (all too often lacking in the wine business) will generate and keep customers. Bravo!"
:: James Yobski, Santa Monica CA
