Overall Store Rating:

Great Customer Service - by Aaron
I experienced some issues during shipping. One of two boxes was damaged in transit and sent back to the supplier, who then sent a replacement box but shorted me on the units ordered. Thankfully it was all straightened out rather quickly. A simple reply to the email i received shortly after placing the order got me in touch with Dan who was a great help throughout the entire process. I did not even have to pick up a phone. It could not have been simpler having to deal with an unfortunate circumstance. Units were reshipped at no additional cost to me and at a faster service level. The shipping costs which i originally paid were even lower than the estimate provided when the order was placed, which got me a small refund! 08/23/16

DHC had every thing we needed and delivered incredibly fast. Normally we would have to use multiple venders. Our job required some specialized anchoring ,(specified by architect ) to anchor posts and beams. DHC had it all. Great service. 08/17/16
