Over the past four months we have worked closely with Mr. Celnik and Hertz Furniture to furnish our new school. We have had a tremendously positive working relationship and look forward to continuing our relationship with Hertz Furniture for years to come. As this is the first school that our organization has operated, we looked for a reputable, full service company that could guide us in selecting appropriate furnishings for the school within the constraints of our fairly limited budget. We solicited quotes from several well known office and school furniture companies and selected Hertz above the others. Mr. Celniks knowledge of the products and willingness to understand our specific needs were major factors in our decision to proceed with Hertz. The delivery and installation dates were set as soon as we selected Hertz Furniture. Mr. Celnik knew that we were trying to furnish an entire school for 360 students during the busiest time of the year for furniture delivery and installation and made us a priority so that our school would be ready for public viewing for our Ribbon Cutting ceremony. That was a very important day for us and he was an integral part of making that day a huge success. Families were very impressed with the quality and professional look of the furniture selected for the classrooms. From the design team to the installers, all members of the Hertz Furniture team were professional and pleasant. It was truly a pleasure to work with them from start to finish. We feel confident in recommending Hertz Furniture to you and others. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

I do want to say that it was a real pleasure to work with you and Mike and crew. That process could have been so stressful, but you really do a great job with customer service. I appreciate how flexible you've been in your dealings with us. You really helped us to make good decisions and allowed us to spend our dollars wisely.

This is a personal recommendation on behalf of Donna Independent School District and our Board of Trustees to Hertz Furniture Services and Mrs. Jennifer Urogi, National Coordinator of Project Services for their outstanding customer service provided to us in the past year. Donna Independent School District has awarded several contracts to furnish all offices and classrooms at 3D Academy, Earl Scott Field House, AP Solis and Veterans Middle School. Hertz is currently working in a major project with Donna Independent School District to furnish our newest acquisitions. Hertz staff have been very attentive and helpful. The employees I interacted with, especially Mrs. Urogi, are very knowledgeable about the products lines offered to us and genuinely interested in helping our district to find the best items needed at the best value rather than just being focused on making a quick sale. Because of their continuous efforts, our district was able to find exactly what we needed to furnish the mentioned campuses and we are very satisfied with the quality of services provided, the level of cooperation with change of orders and ability to stay on schedule. We sincerely appreciate Hertz team responsiveness to safety records and timely response to warranty items.I would like to highly recommend Hertz Furniture to others as the furniture company to do business with. We look forward to working with and doing business with your team again in the future.
Jesus Rene Reyna Deputy Superintendent Donna Independent School District
Hertz Furniture successfully supplied and installed all the furniture in our new high school facility. This turn-key job was completed on time, and with great coordination among the parties involved. I would highly recommend Adam and Hertz Furniture for your next project.

Hertz Furniture provided classroom furniture for our new middle school during the summer of 2011. Their work providing layouts and costs for each classroom exceeded my expectations. The furniture was received on time and the delivery and installation was very organized and efficient. I would recommend Hertz to anyone that is considering purchasing furniture.
Stacy Haugeberg, Purchasing Director, Belton ISD
From the start, Jennifer and her team at Hertz impressed us with the quality of their products, their commitment to excellence, and dedication to customer service. They were thorough in their presentation, answered all of our questions, assured us on any hesitations, and committed to meeting all of our needs from inception to execution. They clearly laid out what their process would look like, what each party would be responsible for, a timeline for execution, and post-installation follow-up. Throughout the process of working with us, what I appreciated most was the realistic but optimistic “we can get it done” attitude. Jennifer and her team were problem solvers and knew when to escalate the issue and who would be able to resolve it. I know on several occasions Hertz Vice Presidents reached out directly to manufacturers on our behalf to ensure our satisfaction. Saul Wagner, President of Hertz Furniture Systems, took the time to meet with me personally and receive feedback when I visited their corporate offices in New Jersey. This is an unprecedented level of service, one that I have not received with other vendors, furniture or otherwise. We are so incredibly happy with the work that Hertz has done for us that we are preparing to embark on a four- year partnership with Hertz to furnish all of our schools through 2017. Given the level of service, attention to detail, willingness to rise to the challenge, and quality of the products they sell, I have absolutely no reservation in recommending Hertz Furniture Systems to other clients.

I have been doing business with Aviva at Hertz Furniture since I first went to a charter school in NC in 1999, in particular after the flood waters of Hurricane Floyd destroyed my charter school of about 1,000 students, meaning we had to start all over in another facility, to include replacing ALL of our no longer usable furniture. Aviva will give you personal treatment, whether you are buying a little or a lot. I can also tell you that after being in the charter school business for almost fifteen years now, that I would know if there was a more efficient or less costly place to buy school furniture. This is just my way of trying to help you start out your new charter school project off the ground as cost effective as possible. For me, it is still most cost effective to use Hertz Furniture to replace a fifth grade classroom rather than buy locally. I'm currently replacing desks and chairs in fifth grade classroom with chair/desk combos. Hertz's price can't be beat and the quality is excellent. If you have any questions, please give me a call at 864-764-4722.
