Case Study of the Month

Check out the Party Plane! This conversion may look like a couple of simple red containers fitted with roller shutters, but they are currently on a big city tour of the UK, promoting Jet2 Holidays. Fitted out by the client to create a party atmosphere, the public are invited to step inside and have fun with a range of party themed activities, including a makeover, silent disco, and refreshments.

If you can't pay a visit to the Party Plane yourself, you can find out more about this clever creation on our case study page.

"From the first contact with Neil Clarke it was clear that you know your business and what is and isn't possible. No pushy sales talk, just an informed process, right down to site suitability, access for delivery, etc. Also the willingness to 'sharpen the pencil' to achieve fair balance of price and spec. Overall for me, having had not prior dealings with sea containers, it has been a positive and even pleasurable experience. It is clear that you take your customers seriously, and Cain's were great at the point of delivery."
