I had approached several suppliers and S Jones were the only one to follow up. From start to finish they were efficient and cheerful and consistent in that whoever I dealt with knew about the progress of my order. They were able to answer all my questions and were flexible to meet my delivery requirements. The haulier they used was excellent, easily placing the container into a confined space having kept me informed about when he was expecting to arrive. The container itself shows more signs of an interesting life than I had expected, but then don't we all ? :-)

The second hand container ordered was much better than we thought when it arrived. It came very quickly and was like brand new. The delivery driver was very efficient when installing the container and nothing was too much trouble. We will certainly purchase from your company again when we need another container.
