Fantastic service at very good rates. Super friendly helpful staff.
10/10, faultless service.
I've used TCH for a number of years. The service is second to none and the prices are very reasonable
The service provided was very quick and most of all the person who served me was excellent with his customer care skills. A credit to the company as you don't get to see service like this anymore.
If I need a van I will get a van, even if they have to stretch their resources. Never did I hear 'we can't help you', sensibly priced and quite flexible. Definitely worth recommending.
