Hi All,


I'm hoping someone might be able to give me some advice on a situation i have with a storage container i had hired for my house please.


We hired a container through topcontainerhire, and paid for delivery, first months fee's, collection fee, and for condensing strips. All this went to topcontainerhire on credit card. The container was delivered by speedy container hire, with topcontainerhire as the customer.


Firstly there were no condensing strips that we paid £200 for. Topcontainerhire refused to do anything, so we put it down to bad luck and gave in.


Now 3 months into the contract, topcontainerhire have gone bust, and speedycontainers rang up saying they've had no money since January, and that they want to come pick it up! We've been paying by direct debit to topcontainerhire for the last 2/3 months.


We've now paid speedy for the missed rental, and the remainder of the year to stop them taking it away.


Can we claim anything back from the credit card company? Topcontainer hire have had about £600 from us. I'm a little unsure as there is lots about supplier and 3rd parties etc etc which seems to complicate things.


Appreciate any advice - i wish we'd never hired the damn thing!

Have you been in touch with the Liquidator and asked about any connection between the 2 Co's. Smells a bit fishy doesn't it.


I don't see you have a claim with the credit card Co apart from the collection fee, which TCH can't now provide and no doubt Speedy will charge you for.


TCH delivered the unit without the condensation strips but you decided to give up on this.


As the monthly pay'ts were made by DD, there's no liability on the part of the credit card Co for this.


Try and get a refund, from the credit card Co, for the amount of the collection fee.

We could do with some help from you
