When a charitable or good cause contacts us, we often supply what they need at a discounted rate. This was the case with ‘The Red Cross’ when they required 20ft containers to be positioned in certain locations on a long-term rental basis. Our team also painted and branded the containers inline with the Red Cross corporate guidelines.
