Birmingham Botanical Gardens Thank You Letter

Dear Bart,

Thank you very much for McCorquodale Transfer’s sponsorship of the 2016 Antiques at The Gardens. This year’s show, in honor of Frances and Miller Gorrie, is shaping up to once again be an impressive and elegant event bringing in out-of-town visitors and real dollars to Birmingham businesses.

As you know, your sponsorship goes directly to support the hands-on educational programs at Birmingham Botanical Gardens, allowing us to provide much needed science-based experiences to thousands of children throughout the community and state.

We hope to see you at the kick-off, black tie Gala in The Gardens on October 6.

Thank you again, your support makes a world of difference.

History Museum Thank You Letter

April 8, 2009

Dear Bart,

This letter is to thank you, and thank you profusely, for the wonderful and professional job your men did in moving the museum’s contents from three offices in Office Park to the Young & Vann building in late March.

(I noticed the mention in the Birmingham News, and am glad your company got the recognition it certainly earned for that job.)

I’m sure all the moves are difficult ones, but this presented many challenges to us, including our concern for the number of old and fragile artifacts, documents, and so forth and the fact that heavy cases had to be moved from various other locations. Perhaps the biggest concern was the potential cost to our small nonprofit. Your donation of the move – at no cost to us – signified one of the greatest and most useful contributions we’ve received from any company in our five-year history. I and the board members would gladly provide a testimonial for McCorquodale Transfer if one is ever needed.

Let me add that your movers were polite and considerate throughout, as was the coordinator, Seneca Reid, who smoothly organized the entire effort through our volunteer Gary Gerlach.

In closing, let me say again that the staff and board of the Birmingham-Jefferson History Museum would consider it a privilege to recommend your company and your staff to potential customers.

Yours truly,

Bayard Tynes, president
Birmingham-Jefferson History Museum

Disaster Relief Aid Thank You Letter

Dear Mr. McCorquodale,

When I was told a shipment of donations was coming from Alabama, I never would have expected such a great amount – BOXES and BOXES of water, clothes, blankets, towels, canned goods, and toiletries! I want to thank you so very much for your generosity and thoughtfulness, which is both remarkable and extremely encouraging to the residents and workers trying to rebuild this great city.

New Orleans has found a special place in the hearts of many, and we are truly appreciative for your gift to Trinity and Mobile loaves and fishes. Your kindness is overwhelming and the recipients of your collected gift, both in New Orleans and surrounding areas affected by Ike and Gustav, were overjoyed.

Best wishes and many thanks,

Sarah Minge
Office of Disaster Relief
Trinity Episcopal Church
New Orleans, LA 70130



Dear McCorquodale Team,

I want to thank you for helping me out with my storage units last week! You truly went above & beyond to make my life easier! I know how time-consuming the process was & I do appreciate your willingness to help me out on such short notice & free of charge! Thank you again & I look forward to working with y’all in the future!




Dear Bart,

On behalf of all the ladies of the Red Mountain Garden Club, I thank you so much for helping us with our greenery sale this year. David and the wonderful staff at McCorquodale were so gracious and helpful – a pleasure to work with!

The proceeds from this annual fundraiser make it possible for us to take care of the Museum Garden as well as support the Botanical Gardens. Your generosity is so appreciated by all of us.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday, and 2011 is a prosperous year for all!


Lila M.


Dear Bart,

Thank you once again for your substantial donation to our Antiques At The Gardens event. The hospitality we provide to our dealers is one reason many are multi-year participants and having professional movers is another BIGGIE.

Thanks again for your ongoing support of our largest fundraising event

Best regards,

Fred Spicer
