I wanted to take a moment and commend your company on the service we received while working the Donnell Fire. We work with many propane companies over the course of fire season and your company was hands-down the best propane company we have ever worked with!

From the moment I contacted your company, we received excellent service from staff that was more than willing to provide propane to our equipment at fire camp. Your company and staff made our job easy. When we called in a request for propane, it was delivered without hesitation and with an eagerness to help. The entire process was seamless and very much appreciated. Thank you! - Rickaby Fire Support (Sonora)

Your employee, Gary, installed two regulators for our generator. He did an outstanding job in a short time and was careful to ensure safety that the system had no leaks. You are fortunate to have him as your employee. - Richard (Pollock Pines)

We have switched to Campora Propane, and today Bill and Jason installed the new tank. It was not an easy job getting into our back yard and I want to commend Bill and Jason for doing such good work. The Sales Representative may get you new customers, and assure the customers that the work will be done right, but it is the courteous, competent, and careful Service Technicians who make that a reality. Your customer’s satisfaction and your company’s reputation depend on all your employees, and I wanted to recognize Bill and Jason for the part they play in you having a great business. - Connie & Michael (Oakhurst)

Your [driver] filled the tank today. What a nice polite guy he is. Nice to have him on my property, very respectful. Thanks. - Gary & Jenny (Angels Camp)

I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent service and help getting me up and running at the new house yesterday. (This seems like something that would take 2 days or more due to scheduling, or whatever the reason, with most companies) I was really impressed with how quickly the tank was put in and set up and the help I received in getting everything up and running at the house. As I anticipated, I was happy I was working with Campora again. - Brian (Colfax, CA)

Thanks for referring me to Campora Propane.  Your prices are so fair!  - Joanne  (Colfax, CA)

Thanks for keeping us warm and cooking!  We appreciate your great service.  Thanks for always making it up our steep driveway, squeezing between the garage and RV, and coming out in the bad weather - Jan H.  (Grass Valley, CA)

We want to compliment your two Oakhurst employees that cheerfully repaired our propane system and relit five pilot lights. A fast response, and a good one. Hooray for Campora having such nice men on staff. John & Nancy H. (Oakhurst, CA)

Thank you for today’s prompt service—Outstanding!!  - Robert H.  (Colfax, CA)

Thank you for being so nice to us. It’s really nice to be treated like we always treat others. Have a wonderful spring. - Sharon B., (Colfax, CA)

My family and I just wanted to send a note your way to show our appreciation for your excellent customer service! You are one of the very few people who are always willing to go above and beyond. In today’s society, that sure does mean a lot. So a great big THANK YOU TO YOU! - The H. Family, (Sonora, CA)

I am a new customer. I want to thank you for the wonderful people you have working for you.  They make you look good!  They are pleasant & positive & cheerful.  I have had the pleasure to deal with your office staff, serviceman and delivery driver—all outstanding people! - B.G.W.  (Colfax, CA)

Today I received a delivery of propane.  I want you to know that over the past 20+ years of using propane from a number of different suppliers in the area, yours is the FIRST company I have not felt cheated by!  This is not simply a result of receipt of lower pricing than that of other companies.  It is a result of what appears to be your honesty with respect to pricing accordingly…to your costs.  Please consider this note to be my acknowledgement of, and appreciation for, the fact that I have found Campora Propane to be as honorable and ethical business as I could hope to be served by….and I am very pleased by this fact. - Bruce B.  (Shingletown, CA)

This letter is to commend your company and its people for the outstanding job it did handling a recent problem with my propane service.  On the 22nd of February we discovered that our recently filled propane tanks were completely empty.  I called your office around 4:00PM and informed you of our problem.  At approximately 5:00PM your service tech arrives and is ready to diagnose the problem.  He discovers that the line entering the home has worn through and sets up a couple temporary cylinders to get us through until repairs can be done.  I called the office the next morning and said I would be leaving for the month of March and could we get the repairs done before we leave?  Your office gets a hold of a trenching service and he comes out and digs an 80’ trench and schedules repairs for Monday.  Your tech, concerned about the weekend, brings us fresh cylinders Friday night to get us through the weekend.  The next Monday your tech arrives, puts in new pipe and the truck arrives to refill our tanks, by that night we are back in business!  Tuesday we leave for vacation worry free.   The degree of professionalism by all people at Campora was outstanding and I will not hesitate recommending your service to my friends. - Richard P.  (Nevada City, CA)

Times like these seem to either bring out the best or worst in people.  Today you brought out the best.  Thank you so much for filling my tank.  It will help more than you know. - Pam R.  (Meadow Vista, CA)
