From start to finish the process was simple and they guided us through along the way, we were able to pick the day when our container was to arrive and as we're a school this was important to us and well received. The delivery driver was fantastic, nothing was an issue for him, our tight turns through only just big enough gates were no problem, he placed it exactly where we wanted it and he did the whole process of getting back out of the site backwards! All the staff that I have dealt with have been very helpful. If we need another container (i'm already thinking about it) i'll be using them again.

Wendy offered the most professional service and speedily but thoughtfully showed us the best product to meet our needs. Some of the extra's like the lock and internal painting of the container were perfect for our business storage. Very professionally painted container that blends perfectly with its surroundings in situ at our business site. Your driver, (who has been on TV!), was the most professional and safest I've seen using the Hiab Crane and manoeuvred the container brilliantly into position. Would recommend S Jones Containers to anyone....100%!
