They didn't inform me that delivery to Qatar would be delayed. They failed to communicate this issue to me immediately. I found out later that they had a problem with the cargo carrier.

My car was shipped earlier than expected. It was a great experience making arrangements with Gary. Definitely, I would use ShipOverseas again soon.
