I recently donated blood at the Bergen Community Blood Center . There was no wait. The staff were extremely attentive.
They were helpful with filling out the necessary forms (which I found confusing)
They were informative and calmed any fears I may have had....mostly about pain. There was minimal pain, only a slight prick and I wasn't left with any bruising.
They made sure I had orange juice and a donut. They stressed drinking a lot of water throughout the rest of thday.
The whole experience was perfectly fine
PROS: Very professional
My sister came up to visit me in NJ and I took her to the Antique CEnter in Upper Saddle. She found a lot of amazing items that she wanted for her place in Florida. We couldn't locate a moving company that would move a small amount of furiture that far and luckily we tried. The Ups Store in Ramsey was able to get all my sister's furniture purchases from NJ to Florida for us.. They packed her items and shipped them directly to her without a hitch. They were real lifesavers.
They carry peanuts, bubble wrap and boxes. They were excellent. Everything arrived in perfect condition.
PROS: Great service
