What Clients Say About Us

Man, was I in a bind last month. I am a sales person for a packaged food company and I had to receive about 150 cases of product, divvy it all up, and then ship it out to 70 different locations. I work from home and there was no way I was going to run this operation out of my 1 bedroom apartment. I was in a panic until I looked up some information and called Cowtown Express. They were so nice and agreed to receive the product, divide it up, and ship it out for me. Even though this kind of job is a little different than what they normally do, they were happy to figure out a way to get it done for me. Their labor costs were very reasonable and the whole thing got done with a lot less stress and hassle than I had expected.
