United Utilities have used Universal Containers for a number of years to supply everything from basic containers to full bespoke office builds, Andrew Rushton (R&D Sales Manager) has always offered a high standard of service, the products we have received have always impressed. We have always found Universal to be reliable and competitive, when we’ve given them a challenging build they have proven to be flexible and creative.

Group Procurement Manager

O' Connor Utilities

I’m always impressed with the service we receive from Universal, Andy Rushton (Sales Manager) always listens carefully and gets very quickly what we require.  The team respond to questions almost immediately and address problems very effectively. They are really easy to work with and seem to appreciate their customers. Universal make arranging my container/cabin needs allot easier.

I would like to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you for the time and effort you put into guiding us through the design and installation of our new changing rooms. By using 5 new interlinked cabins you were able to provide us with  changing rooms and shower rooms for home and away teams, and officials, with adequate room for storage, a kitchen and public toilets. The cabins are fit out to a very high standard. We were able to do this with your help and come in on budget and on time.

The employees who came to install the cabins did a first class job in the coldest of weather, and left the changing rooms clean, no doubt having to wash down the floors before leaving. Once again many thanks and we would recommend you without hesitation.

I live on the East coast of Lincolnshire. Universal Containers is nearly 150 miles away from where I live. I wanted to choose an office container conversion and have it delivered over 400 miles, a 3-hour ferry trip and then 25 miles to a property down a rough track in the Outer Hebrides. All this without me going to see the finished container or be present when it would be collected and delivered. Sounds like a risky nightmare? Well, no. First I talked to Andy over the phone and got an idea of the design options and a rough idea of costs. I was then sent a diagram to record the design I wanted. This was checked with me, and once finalised, I was given a clear cost and a ready-for-collection date. Although I chose my own haulier for collection and delivery, Universal Containers were happy to co-operate and reassured me that they could get a competitive quote if my arrangements fell through. So the container conversion was finished exactly on time, Andy sent me detailed pics of the finished product before it was dispatched, and now it sits on site in the Outer Hebrides.

I needed a used 10x8x8'6 container with lock box and painted green, delivered. I live in the north of England and so obtained 19 quotes from local suppliers for the spec described. Universal containers came in at number 1. Communication and the payment was swift and simple thanks to Charlie Eyles in their admin office and the container was delivered quickly without fuss. As for the container, its perfect and looks like new painted inside and out. You've only got to look at universals website to realise they are not some back street cheap sales company. They are indeed a professional business supplying top quality containers at the best price!  Thank you to all at Universal, and best wishes for the future!
