“Following several attempts to purchase a portable cabin from a national company we started to look for a local company.
From the very first phone call we felt important. We arranged a visit to the local depot in Brocton at a convenient time to us, discussed our options and then arranged for Matt to come to our site to look at our specific requirements.
The whole deal has been quick and simple and nothing was too much trouble. We made several changes and were guided by Matt’s expertise. Thanks Matt, highly recommended and we will definitely come to you again for any requirements in the future”.
