Secondary School Containers for Archive and General Storage
Way back in October 2016 we received an enquiry from a secondary school in West Bromwich who were looking for a couple of secure storage units for archive and general storage. The school was having a massive refurb with new buildings being built for the 2017 school term. The containers needed to be installed just before the pupils went back to school. Lucy explains the job, and the steps we went to, to ensure our client was given the best possible service.
Before Christmas 2016 I spoke with the client who was certain she would be ordering with Lion Containers Ltd as we gave a helpful proactive approach and supplied the most comprehensive quotation. We discussed the design of the units further and finalised the specification. The containers would be 20ft new (once shipped) green units, fitted with lighting, Grafo Therm and shelving.
As soon as 2017 rolled in, the container industry was hit with a massive price increase, this was due to a number of factors including an increase in steel rates and the factories in China shutting down for the new paint specification to be introduced. This was also going to have an effect on how much stock would be brought into the UK. We work with some of the largest container manufacturing companies in China, and therefore are always a step ahead with stock.
As we knew the price increase was imminent we were able to advise our customers to buy early, and avoid the rise in price. It worked out significantly cheaper for the school to buy the containers early in March, and to pay the daily storage charge on the containers until they were ready for delivery in August. By doing this, we were able to convert the containers early so the school had their new stores ready and waiting for them.
