Heather L

We live in SW11 and have been with Virgin for 2 years - TERRIBLE unreliable broadband ( buffering with films, drops off while doing google searches, slow speed, and bad coverage in house which I guess is a router problem, despite best router possible ... [ more ]

Portaloo Hire

Anne-marie N
in Wandsworth
Hi can anyone recommend a reasonably priced portaloo hire company. I'm having a BBQ next week & think an extra loo would be really helpful.
MM
I used Site Equip who were keenly priced, professional and helpful. It was for a longer period though (building project) and the type of loo was very basic. Probably not what I'd choose for a BBQ. That said, I believe they also rent smarter loos!
