The storage bin has just been delivered and it is exactly as described: solidly made and with a good firm closure which I need as it will be used for storing bread flour. The castors are a useful addition! With thanks for such efficient service.

I had excellent service from Solent Plastics -- the person I dealt with on the phone was reliable, helpful, efficient and courteous. I received everything on time and it was as described on the website. Solent Plastics went to special trouble to ensure my delivery requirements were met. I am a satisfied customer and I will recommend you to others.

We received the tanks last week and started using them this week. I just thought I'd let you know we are happy with them and the rubber wheels are much better than the nylon ones fitted to barrows we've bought in the past. I know where to come when I need some more.

Just wanted to say, thank you! I’ve just taken delivery of the above item and I’m delighted. I know the order was a tiny one but the service I received from you was outstanding. If only all companies were as professional. I’ll happily recommend you to others – and I will definitely use you again. Many thanks and best regards

Thank you for your help with these storage containers, we received them a few weeks back & everything has worked out wonderfully. You were the most helpful & proactive company I dealt with when trying to source containers & for that I thank you, your efforts ensured you got the business & ensured I would not go anywhere else as most other companies when I rang just pointed me towards their website, you were the only one willing to discuss requirements & help specify suitable containers. Thanks.
