“We needed a temporary warehouse because all our sites were absolutely full.”
We didn’t really want to take on another premises at that point so, we decided we wanted to sweat the assets that we had. We had a big yard that was not used and was ideal to put a temporary storage building in that space.
“We chose Aganto because they were good in the sales process and really responsive, they gave us a good product at a really good price. The warehouse has worked really well. We actually use it as an overflow storage facility at the moment.”
My experience of Aganto is really good, they sort of held my hand all the way through the process so really I was delighted with it, with the whole purchase and the service. Some other competitors just did it over the phone and for an investment of this size we felt that we wanted a bit more than just a desk top price. To work with Aganto was very professional, as soon as I put the sales call in, they got someone in very quickly, they knew what they were doing. The installers knew what they were doing, the sales guys knew what they were doing, it was just an easy process. Having this temporary warehouse has really helped us a lot because every time we move it’s a significant investment, it’s meant that we can expand our business without actually taking on additional facilities.
If someone else wanted to invest in a temporary warehouse I think it’s a great idea, it really worked well for us. It’s very fast, an easy way of expanding your property, your warehouse and giving you the capacity to grow your business.
I would recommend Aganto, they have been excellent all the way through the process, right from the sales to the installation. I really haven’t had any problems with the whole process, it’s been a really, really good experience.
