We have worked with Boxtor for several years and we needed their assistance again recently. They always provide a courteous and professional service and this time was no exception. we ordered two 20 foot containers for temporary site storage. The containers were delivered promptly and the delivery driver was clearly highly experienced and skilled at offloading. Both containers are in a 'new' state and perfectly suit our needs. Highly recommended company who offer a 5 star service from the time time they take your enquiry to the point of delivery or collection.

"I am happy to record that we were very pleased with your service. You have offered good advice from the start and following a false start on our part you continued to engage positively and provide what we needed. The container is of good quality and should serve our purpose well. The delivery ran into a delay due to problems with the strike at Felixstowe, but the driver did a great job to get here on the day. He was most helpful with the delivery and handled the siting into a tight spot with ease. A good job all round and I am happy to recommend your services to others. Many thanks."

After searching the internet for shipping containers and finding that the cost of used ones had increased so much, we decided to purchase new ones. We made several enquiries to various shipping container companies, and found Boxtor’s LTD had the most competitive quote, and the customer service throughout the process was excellent. We received a call one hour before delivery and the HIAB driver was very precise with crane when locating the containers.
