The Project

Sunderland-based Slayco provides a complete range of construction services for regional businesses and public sector companies.

The construction firm required storage facilities for its tools and materials on site at The Forge U Student Village in Sunderland to assist with a building project at the student accommodation base.

The Solution

Slayco became a client in March 2019 and we have quickly established a strong working relationship.

Due to the fast pace of the project, the team on site required a quick turnaround for storage facilities, and within two hours of the initial call from the client, we delivered six 20ft storage units to site.

Jon Slater, managing director at Slayco, said: “A temporary storage facility on site would save us both time and money in terms of transferring the equipment from the site to the yard each day.

“We chose Mobile Mini as we wanted to work with a local company. Although we gave them a tight timescale for the storage delivery, it was a smooth and easy process.

“We have used Mobile Mini several times now and every time the staff are accommodating, helpful and professional. We always receive a high level of service – from ordering, to driver communication, calling in advance of arrival and asking if there’s anything they need to know to make delivery as smooth as possible.

“We will certainly work with them again for future projects.”

Simon Gray, Mobile Mini Sunderland branch manager, said: “From our office receiving the enquiry, liaising with the yard on availability and arranging transport, the process was successfully completed in less than half a day.

“We saw the speed and response required by Slayco as a challenge and delivering on the customer requirements no matter how difficult, is our top priority.”
