However, I wont be using Willbox again with your refusal to open a credit account,
We found the service at Willbox to be exceptional. They were very helpful and quick to assist with any queries we had. Deliveries and collections were on time and a smooth process to arrange. Will most definitely use again in the future.
I've just had the container I've been renting for the past few years collected and want to pass on my experience with Willbox...from beginning to end the company has been a pleasure to deal with. The delivery was to a quite challenging rural location, but this was no problem to the operator, who manoeuvred the container into place with great expertise. Billing was straightforward and the monthly invoices were prompt and accounting-friendly. Communication was always friendly and enjoyable. The collection of the container was again, impressively done. If you're looking for the best in the field Willbox are it - look no further! Many thanks to all concerned.
