Last week one of our “slightly out of area” clients asked if we had any urgent availability with a hiab (truck mounted crane vehicle) to pick up an empty 20ft container from Braintree in Essex. The client had a 40′ container arriving which they had purchased from our Container Sales and Hire division but the existing 20′ had not yet been collected.
Once a container is de-hired a collection will occur at the convenience of the hire company. Sometimes this is within hours, other times days. Unfortunately for our client who had booked delivery of their new 40 storage container, the existing hire firm could not collect in time.
Our customer had been using the container for storage outside their premises. Something that is becoming ever more popular on industrial sites. Shipping containers really are a great solution for additional storage on site.
Fortunately for our customer we had a rigid truck mounted crane vehicle close to the Essex area the following morning on another job so we were able to offer our customer not only a quick solution but also a very competitive price…. if we can we will always try and look for the best option at the best price without reducing the quality of our service along the way – this is why our customers come back to us time and time again!!
Ideally, we’d have dropped and collected on one vehicle but there was no room to place the 40′ delivery whilst moving the 20′ out of the way. But, the end result was a happy customer who could carry on without fuss after delivery.
