Cracking service from Chris, Robin & the team at willbox - prompt delivery, great communication, good quality used and new boxes!
Ahead of placing my order for a 10 foot container Matt was very helpful in answering my many questions regarding access and delivery, also the emplacement of the container, etc. etc. The driver was unbelievably skillful and friendly, really superb job, the container arrived on time. Brand new 10 foot unit, really smart looking, and it does the job superbly whilst we sort out excess belongings from a house move (no room in the house for all the old stuff). Far cheaper than off-site storage and obviously far more convenient. I would not hesitate to recommend Willbox to others.
Customer service was great, can’t fault it. Matt couldn’t do enough to ensure I got the container required. Delivery was prompt and on time. The container looks brand new and is hardly noticeable it its surroundings, which has pleased my neighbours!
