Was able to get the conatiner I wanted at a price that was far better than it's competition. Working with Victoria Evans from Pelican was great and the delivery company they helped me find was spot on. If I need another container, I know exactly where I will go, right back to Pelican!

I was misled as to business hours for pick-up times, but other than that, Marilyn did a great job communicating to me throughout the process. I would purchase from her again.

Pelican Containers are an amazing company to work with! From the sales rep to the delivery driver, they all worked with a very high level of integrity. This America based business answered the phone when we called, they checked up and followed through with all our requests. We had daily communication with the sales rep during the purchase process. When the driver was on his way with our delivery, and he knew that he was running behind, he called to let us know a more exact time he would arrive. He was easy to work with and was not in a hurry to off load the containers. He was thorough with the placement of the containers, making sure that they were where we wanted them. We will do business with this company again!
