     Besides the reviews that you can click on above from various periodicals, many customers have written to us to thank us for their swing. So we decided to post those on the net for you so you can get an idea of how awesome these swings are. Swings By Mefford prides itself on how it can better serve its customers. We'll be adding more very soon.

     I bought a Mefford porch swing for my wife as a Mother's Day present 25 years ago. We took it from Bloomington to Montana with us in 1996 and used it there for 10 years. Now we have it now hanging from the pergola over our back deck. We had it stripped three years ago and had all the steel screws replaced with brass. Now I put a coat of Cabot's Australian Timber Oil on it once a year and despite pretty much full sun half the day all summer, it holds up beautifully. Plus it's the most comfortable porch swing I've ever sat in. It's still solid as a rock, and graceful at the same time. Thanks for a great, long-lasting product.


     The swing is a neighborhood HIT! Mike put it up for me Thursday evening when we got back from Bloomington. I took the day off Friday and lazed around in my beautiful new swing on my beautiful new covered porch. Our two neighbors who also have your swings, as well as my in-laws who have your swing, immediately recognized it as a Mefford. The Paul Bunyan is a remarkable looking swing, and we couldn't be more pleased. Thanks, Vernon, for your beautiful, handcrafted, strong swings, and for your customer service as well. We are thrilled, and the swing is the most striking feature other than the porch itself. Thank you so very much!!

     We purchased a 6 ft. Paul Bunyon in 1992. Since that time it has been in 3 states and 4 locations. In fact this year I have to refinish it. We have been many places where there are swings for sale but none are as well built or comfortable. I always hated the fact that when you got up in most swings the person left got whip lash from the jerk. Thanks for such an ergonomic and comfortable swing. Thanks again!!!

Mr. Mefford,
      I am placing my order for our fourth swing from your Bloomington factory. My wife and I have given your swing as a "cottage warming" gift and Christmas presents. This one, however, is for us...for the front porch at our cottage in northern Michigan. Thanks!!!

Mr. Mefford-,
     I want to thank you so very much for the beautiful craftsmanship on our walnut Paul Bunyon swing. Rather than go to a large chain and purchase an ordinary swing, I wanted to get a fine, sturdy swing that our family could enjoy for years to come. It's rare to find a swing so well made.
     What I want to thank you most for is that you made sure that I was 100% satisfied. I asked you to make me a swing with a special stain - and when I saw the finished swing, the stain did not match what I had in mind. Although you custom made this swing for me, I did not buy it. You instead made another swing for me to ensure I was happy with my purchase. That's customer service! Although I live over 3 hours from you, I believe the drive was well worth doing to get this superior swing. In the future, I would like to add to the swing by getting one of your hand made tables and chairs to match. Thank you so much , Mr. Mefford, for your fine work.

Hi Vern,
     Sorry to take so long to let you know the swing arrived safely and is now happily hanging on my deck overlooking beautiful Kachemak Bay. Thanks very much for this very nice piece of Indiana I could bring back with me. I have a feeling it will lead to a few sales for you... already one of my co-workers is interested. My mom just arrived yesterday for the annual shorebird festival and she's already tried it out to her satisfaction. Thanks!!!

Mr. Mefford-
     My wife and I recently received our new 'Ma Bunyan' cherry wood swing. I canít tell you how much we appreciate the appearance and quality of the swing. We were a little nervous ordering a swing on-line, but have no regrets with our purchase. Personally, I think the quality far exceeds anything we have been able to find locally in retail stores. You delivered the swing for the price you quoted and within the time frame you promised. The swing is a piece of furniture which will stay with us for years to come. Everyone who sees it,comments on the quality of the swing. Thanks again and I would strongly recommend your swings to anyone who is looking for a quality swing at a reasonable cost.
