Swapping of 4 x 40ft Used Containers with 8 x 20ft New Containers

In June 2014 we worked with a company based in Somerset who specialise in the supply of garden machinery. At the time they needed 4 x 40ft used high cube containers for secure storage of overflow stock. The units were ordered and delivered successfully.

Case Study

Two months ago, I took a call from Kate who was looking to swap the 40ft containers theyd brought from us for 8 x 20ft new (once shipped) containers. It turns out that two of the 40ft containers were never used! The 40ft containers are great at offering a larger storage space however, when you are dealing with heavy machinery and trying to get to the lawn mower right at the back of the unit, it can be a bit tricky. 20ft containers were going to solve this issue for the customer, as they will still retain the same internal space across two units but the stock will be easier to manage.

At the time of the original order we provided the company with a guaranteed 600 buy back per 40ft container along with free collection. The buyback made the swap really easy for Kate and her team as we decided to deliver pairs of 20ft new containers to site at the same time as taking away each 40ft unit.

Case Study

Summary

Before the final delivery of the last pair of 20ft containers, Kate requested for Bert (Newport haulier) to be assigned to the last delivery as he knows the site so well.

The last pair of 20ft containers have been delivered and all 40fts taken from site. The client can now make better use of their storage space and the site looks really tidy with a full line of 20ft new (once shipped) green RAL6028 containers.

Here is what Kate had to say about our hauliers;
Just to advise that the containers have been safely delivered and the 40 one removed. The driver Bert was most helpful once again, having visited with the previous consignment. Please do pass on our thanks to the logistics company on our behalf.?
