Client Feedback

“Travis came highly recommended to us from a friend whose boat we go out on frequently. When it came time to purchase our own boat, we gave Travis a call. He did a great job with our survey and he explained what was wrong with the boat and what would happen in the future if repairs weren’t made. His recommendations were clear and concise and very reasonable to both parties. It’s been over a month now and the boat runs well. It was money well spent.”

“As a first time boat owner, the marine survey was a critical part of the purchase process. Travis was very competent, assertive when necessary, providing me the confidence to finalize the purchase.”

“Travis Palmer is an expert when it comes to marine surveys. He is prompt with all communication and accommodated a complicated schedule for all to be in attendance. It was great to have Travis on my side for advice in the process of purchasing my new sailboat. I will certainly use him and his company again on the next purchase. Thank you Travis for your hard work.”

Hi Travis,

I know this is a little late but I wanted to get in contact with you to tell you how much Teresa and I appreciate your help last week on the survey. We were so nervous about this purchase at first. Now we are confident we made the right decision. I’m glad we took our friends advice and decided to give you a call. Best of luck in your business!

Thank you very much for scheduling us on such short notice, I know this is the busy time of year for you we appreciate you moving some stuff around for us and seeing the boat on the weekend. Just wanted to drop a line and thank you for doing a great job on the survey. I learned a lot listening to you. Will recommend you in the future.

Afternoon Travis,

I just read the survey report and am very pleased with your findings. I knew that engine had more hours on it than was listed. Your engine computer doesn’t lie! This was a significant price negotiation that helped in our favor. Keep up the good work!

I wanted to follow up with you and tell you what a great job you did on our 07′ Rinker. After asking around the dock and casual bar talk around Annapolis your name kept coming up as someone who is new, young and does a great thorough inspection. I was skeptical at first but after seeing you in action I was confident you would do a good job. Not many old farts could get in those spaces like you did I know I couldn’t haha. Anyhow as a small business owner myself I was impressed with your professionalism and courtesy. You have a long career ahead of you. Best of luck!

Thank you for the clear concise info in your report, as an out of town buyer I appreciate the amount of information you provided. This sloop will get some good use in Montreal. Stay warm.
