With BT disposing of original Red Phone Boxes across the whole of the UK, Uniquely British have stepped in to ensure they do not rust away forever forgotten. Fully restored Red Telephone Boxes are now available for purchase. It is a chance for anyone worldwide to own their own piece of iconic British history.
Uniquely British have been shipping phone boxes to customers all across the world including, Russia, USA, France, Germany, Brazil, Bahrain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Kazakhstan, Cyprus, Italy, Finland, Norway, Portugal, and of course, all across the UK.
Before shipping, each Telephone Box is fully restored by highly skilled workers. The procedure involves sandblasting, painting, replacing any rotten wood in the door and replacing the glass and signage.
Uniquely British and Bob Thorpe have recently been featured in the Channel4 news and on a Russian TV new channel. These can both be seen via the Uniquely British web site
For more information about owning a fully restored Red Telephone Box, visit the Uniquely British Web site. A customised shipping quote will be provided for all overseas enquiries due to the heavy weight of each Telephone Box.
Bob Thorpe, owner of Uniquely British, "The demand is incredible! They are being purchased to stand in the garden or by pool. Pub landlords and hotel owners are among our customers. Mostly it is the generation that used to carry coins to use these payphones. People are not paying for the box but for nostalgia."
Uniquely British are a Reclamation Yard based in Canterbury, Kent with owner Bob Thorpe having over 20 years of experience at the helm. They now specialise in restoring Original British Red Telephone Boxes.
