"Very smooth process with good communication, personal customer service and very helpful delivery person. All in all, it has been a very easy and positive experience."
Ania Liro; who ordered a 3m Flat Pack Container
14th September 2022

"Container arrived on the day and was as craned off (on to the base we had constructed) by your driver, excellent product, excellent service and excellent delivery into what wasn't the easiest of sites to access by your driver."
Galhampton Village Hall & Playing Field; who ordered a 14ft Used Container with Ply Lining
9th September 2022

"Superb service from Containers Direct. An internet search brought up the company and their easy to navigate website took me to the self-build containers. A simple online ordering system enable a swift and easy placement of an order. Confirmation emails of order received and confirmed followed shortly and subsequent emails advising of a delivery date and time (am or pm) was clearly communicated. Delivery was very professionally provided and the delivery driver extremely helpful and careful with the off-loading of my container. The instructions provided with the container kit were clear and concise and a 4m x 2m self-build container was constructed by four men in a very restricted space within two hours. I would gladly recommend both the self-build container and Containers Direct who supplied it to anyone."
Penshurst Operating Partnership; who ordered a 4m Flat Pack Container
9th September 2022

"No issues, good service from all departments and good communication."
Roose Pioneers ARLFC; who ordered a 4m Insulated Flat Pack Container.
7th September 2022

"The whole process from initial contact through to delivery was great, we had an issue with a late event being booked at the time of the delivery of our containers, Containers Direct UK postponed the delivery with no hassle what so ever, which was a huge help thank you. Would definitely recommend and if we need more, then I know where to come."
East of England Arena & Showground; who ordered 3 once-used 20ft containers with roller shutter doors.
16th August 2022

"As a company we were impressed with the level of service provided including the confirmation of delivery day and time."
From R.K. Wilson Builders Ltd; who ordered a used 10ft container
