Boxes ok, but arrived broken due to terrible packaging - be warned!
on 3 September 2014
We bought a set of 45l boxes and a set of 32l boxes, paying extra for fast delivery so that they would arrive in time for us to clear out our study ready to decorate, and then paying extra again so that they would arrive on a Saturday (as this is not an option in the 'mega discount' shipping plastic box supplies uses).
When they arrived we found that he boxes had been rammed so hard inside each other and packaged with so little padding, that four out of the five 32l boxes had smashed - one of them into a hundred razor sharp pieces. We also later discovered that two of the lids had also broken.
When we contacted plasticboxsupplies, they at first decided that the broken boxes would have to be couriered back to them first, leaving us with a stack of broken boxes in our already very tiny house that was also turned upside down by the decorating. Then a few days later they decided that they no longer needed e broken ones and would send out a replacement after I said I was on a business trip and could not take any time to sit at home and wait for someone to collect them. Days later they sent the replacements (boxes only, no lids) via good old mega discount post again (no Saturday delivery - I had to get the delivery company to leave them in my front door step or else lay again for Saturday delivery). And guess what? The oackaging was just as bad as the first lot and one of the replacement boxes was broken!
Needless to say, I won't be using this company again. I would have save time and money by going to b&q!
