When we first required a container we were very in the dark as to what quality we should buy. Charlotte was brilliant talking us through the options and once we decided to go-ahead with the purchase charlotte kept us up-to-date with proceedings and diligently made the effort to contact me personally. On arrival with the container the two lads were brilliant in sitting it where we wanted it-even though it was in a tight position. Overall we are most happy with all aspects of our dealings with S. Jones Containers and highly recommend their services.
