Good customer service and products.
We originally wanted a container and a portaloo, but changed to just a portaloo. There was no problem about changing our requirements, and the portaloo arrived on time and was sited with no fuss or bother. We haven't had a service yet, but we aren't expecting any problems.
We are doing a big renovation and needed a container for our furniture for 8 or 9 months. Willbox were by far the best price , responded immediately to our enquiry , delivered exactly on time with a very helpful driver . It was a brand new container and extremely clean. Monthly billing clear and precise . If you need a container I wouldn’t bother looking anywhere else. Whole team at Willbox are helpful responsive and friendly . Overall first class
