It was a pleasure to interact with the people in this company. My container was delivered safely and on time. The doors worked well and there were no dents or cracks. Well done!

It was a nice experience interacting with the helpful staff at Pelican. The container was in really good condition and perfectly suited my need of a storage shed. Will come back in the future if I need more.

Patricia Wang

We ordered a 40’ standard container in April but received a 40’ high cube after 10 days. We immediately communicated this to the company and they told we could use the bigger unit at no extra cost. We were delighted!
