Wanted: Furniture Repair. Can anyone help please? I’ve had some furniture damaged in transit from UK to Sayalonga and require the skills and services of a wood furniture repair company with french polisher service. Unfortunately a major UK furniture removal company has damaged several items and left me to sort out the issue even though I paid a substantial insurance premium to cover such a potential issue.
