Support for businesses and services during COVID-19

The current government regulations on business operations are putting organisations of all sizes under huge pressures.

While some are having to drastically ramp up their efforts to keep up with increased demand, others are having to lock up and cease trading for however long the crisis persists. For those that continue to operate managing stock is an increasingly difficult challenge in the face of supply chain and logistical hurdles.

In order to increase capacity while maintaining operational flexibility, many businesses are turning to shipping containers. They can be installed almost anywhere and used for a diverse range of applications. Site accommodation units are also being put to use as security offices or simply additional office space.

Over the past few weeks Willbox has  delivered containers and containerised facilities to a huge range of organisations, including:

  • Retailers requiring overflow capacity for non-perishable stock, giving them the capacity to cope with increased demand
  • Hospitals dealing with unprecedented workloads in need of additional storage capacity for vital equipment
  • Non-essential businesses that need to securely store their tools and materials until the lockdown is over
  • NHS trusts with hugely increased workforces that need site offices to provide additional workspace
  • Organisations that are putting special projects on hold and want to keep project-specific goods and materials safe and separate
  • Businesses that have large amounts of stock in temporary storage, requiring site offices for their security staff

Willbox has depots across the country and our own fleet of delivery vehicles, we are able to deliver containers and site offices within a couple of days to almost any location, providing immediate additional capacity.We understand that the situation remains fluid. Our rolling contracts enable you to adapt to changes as they occur.
