Goods are now with the shipping company….

Yesterday (Saturday) Dan & I travelled to the shipping company, a 3 hour drive from home.

Up at 6.30 to start loading….

First, the PCs went in, then the monitors…

…..then the cables and the laptops…

All loaded by 7.45am

….with a full boot, the remaing items – keyboards, additional cables & sports kits/football shirts went on the back seat….

Arrived at the shipping company in good time.

As the first customer that day we got well looked after

Within a couple of hours, everything was boxed up…..

…..then wrapped and weighed, ready for shipment, all done by the very helpful and friendly staff….

….everything we brought now securely wrapped and stored in 7 boxes bound for Zimbabwe in the next few weeks!

Well done to Coedma Freight International Ltd – A great day for friendsofpakati.com!
