Reeds Ferry Sheds ® Hudson, N.H. GQ All-Time Recommend Rate: 99.16% GQ 2014 Recommend Rate: 98.66% Type of Firm: Home Improvement/Replacement Website: reedsferry.com Harry Carleton Te thing is, we don't view anything we do as a "tactic." Rather we truly believe serving custom- ers properly is a moral obligation; it's the right thing to do. Fortunately "doing the right thing" has an incredible side beneft, because when we put more focus on the customer and less on the needs of our business our business takes care of itself. We realize this sounds sanctimonious, so to prove we're not just full of peace, love and understanding, please also know that we totally despise each and every one of our compet- itors; we're thankful most of them view "customer service" as some sort of tactic, and we hope they all die in a fery wreck.
