How to Ensure You’re Buying from a Reputable Container Company

Last Updated on June 4, 2024


It is important that you find the best reputable container company available.

Have you ever heard of the expression “Buy cheap, pay twice” ? It means that if you buy cheap, then often the quality of the goods are not good enough, they can often break and will not be fit for purpose. If that happens then you often have to buy the same product again to replace the broken or poor quality one. 

This problem can cause you wasted time, money and potential headaches.

Research into the container companies you wish to use, is crucial and highly recommended.

What Makes a Container Company Reputable?  

Many reputable container companies have been trading for a number of years and have acquired a good number of customer Google reviews, with starred ratings. 

These container companies will also have a number of years of experience and knowledge from the container industry. Eg. Billie Box has a combined 60 years of container experience and knowledge. 

A reputable container company might be part of a nationwide organisation eg. British Chambers of Commerce or Federation of Small Businesses. These organisations do their due diligence on any company that joins them and therefore endorses the credibility of the company. If a container company has the status of public or private limited company then that can be a good sign that they are bona fide.

We recommend you don’t just take a website’s word for it though. Do your research. Check out the company’s house register and any organisation that the company is associated with. Maybe get recommendations from friends that perhaps have used the container company’s services before. The cost of a container is a big outlay and we wouldn’t want you to be losing out.

Billie Box has been trading since 2012 and Jane the owner has been in the container industry for nearly 40 years, see more information about Jane Billing here

Billie Box are also members of the ‘Suffolk Chamber of commerce’ and the ‘Federation of Small Businesses’. Both these organisations are well known to the UK business world.

Billie Box is also active within the local (Suffolk) community, by way of charitable donations, volunteering and sponsorship. Please see more information here.

The Risks of Buying from Untrustworthy Sources

  • Some traders offer poor quality containers, there can be hidden fees, and unreliable delivery. Remember ‘You get what you pay for’
  • There are a few companies/traders that are just in it for the money. These companies don’t last long because they will let their customers down too many times and their reputation has fallen by the wayside.
  • We cannot stress enough, you need to do your research when buying from a reputable container company.

How to Verify a Container Company’s Reputation

  • We recommend you check customer reviews, ask for references, and verify certifications.
  • True reputable container companies will be only too glad to offer you what you need to assist you with making your decision. Unreputable container companies often can’t be bothered.

The Long-Term Benefits of Choosing the Right Supplier
