Great service and great company - very helpful and quick service, no problems with delivery and siting the containers.
SJC provided the experience and knowledge to make the purchase and the siting of the container a breeze. Would recommend to first-time buyers - these are the company to speak to!
As usual the service has been very good. We have a slight problem as the left hand door is very difficult to open and close. Hopefully with use this will ease.
Excellent Customer Service, responded to my initial enquiry quickly and efficiently. Everything was done brilliantly from the beginning to the delivery of the container on the day.
