British Telecom is one of the largest companies in the UK and is world renowned as a leader in telecommunications, but even a company as large as this needs outside help in certain areas of business.
It was for this reason that they required Low-Cost Containers expertise in the field of shipping containers. With BT sites across the whole of the UK, and storage being an issue at many of these locations, they needed a company that could meet all of their expectations and requirements.
BT is a brand, and they could not have visible on site containers up and down the country painted in any colour. Although BT required containers for general storage of equipment, their requirements were still quite particular. All details passed over to our in-house technicians and engineers across our various sites in the UK.
This national operation needed containers on sites from Cornwall to Aberdeen; Low-Cost Containers needed to use most of its depots around the UK to supply the containers quickly and efficiently. Our engineers got to work straight away with the primary job being to colour each and every container required to the BT Pantone blue. Low-Cost Containers supplied over 50 storage containers to BT.
Having all the resources required to fulfil this requirement in-house Low-cost Containers we able to give BT a quicker turnaround and reduce costs by keeping everything needed under one umbrella.
Painting of the containers was carried out across our depots, strategically planned to use the least fuel and time consumption to reach their destinations. Once all conversions were complete, the shipping containers were loaded onto our transporters and delivered and set up at the BT sites.
All achieved in a minimal time and the biggest compliment we could ever want after a job has completed is returning business. BT informed us they are very happy with the service Low-Cost Containers supplied and will continue to use Low-Cost Containers for their container storage requirements.
