Following my initial enquiry with Rachel Haycox at S Jones Containers, the process from selection of the container to delivery was extremely professional end to end. Rachel was extremely polite and professional ensuring she monitored the entire process; the end result being that my company, Griffon Hoverwork received a very prompt delivery of the new 20ft (22G1) container which is now already being used. An excellent service throughout and would not hesitate to use S Jones Containers again for any of my storage needs.
