Steven Lomasney, Managing Director Avon Timber
We have used Porrettas on our bigger jobs that require either more than 1 crane or 1 larger one, the service we received was nothing short of perfect from the time keeping to the skill and knowledge of the operators to the presentation of the vehicles. We will continue to work with the team at S. Porretta & Sons in the future.
