I have tried other platforms along with Placid. I have never received a great and smooth transfer from rest of platforms that I got from Placid. Their customer support agent(s), Taimur is very good in providing the reasoning behind questions you may have. Though it says 3-5 business days, the transfers are done in 2 days if you have enrolled in Express Service for free of cost! What more can you ask! In fact, I don't even look at the other services and straight away come placid.net for transfers. I wish them all the best and hope that they the excellent service time and again :)
