10ft, 20ft, some 30ft and 40ft long (all 8ft wide and mostly 8ft 6in high, some 9ft 6in high) container stores are readily available for hire as secure stores. We hire 10ft and 20ft offices and mess rooms with or without furniture. Also 20ft split office or mess: stores split 10ft and 10ft.
For sales we can cut down containers to any length for example a 40ft cut down to 30ft to create a 20ft store/ workshop and 10ft office. Units like these are bespoke and converted to order.
Yes it very probably can. Over 15 years we have supplied modified and converted containers for uses from workshops, power generation units, luxury offices, complex mobile electrical stores to commercial accommodation units for use in UK and for shipping and use abroad.
Please ring to discuss and/or email a rough sketch to begin conversation.
Very secure. Our stores are secured with lock and lock box on double doors, personnel doors on offices and mess rooms typically have five lever lock steel secure doors and steel shuttered windows.
For container conversions we have fitted alarm systems and external security lighting.
Stores for general storage, archive storage and for personal effects in sizes above, also as workshops etc. Offices, mess rooms, drying rooms, meeting rooms all lined and insulated fitted with suitable electrics.
Yes we hire single chemical toilets both cold water standard and hot water including mains units. We hire 2+1 toilet blocks with mains connections or with tanks. We hire security fencing and hoarding throughout UK.
Yes we have new and used containers for sale throughout the UK. All our containers are wind and watertight.
We deliver throughout the UK on lorries with hiab cranes. We use fixed body lorries + trailers and articulated lorries. The lorries need hard standing for offloading. We prefer to avoid running on grass unless conditions are very dry.
We can not advise on planning permission, but as a rule if the container is being hired it generally does not need planning for most sites.
Yes, but best to support them on some timber sheets to spread the weight. The preferable surfaces are hard standing of some sort like a driveway, car park, made up yard etc.
Mostly sober and neutral colours for stores and offices. If needed we can paint them to your colour for a charge.
Our customers very rarely report problems with condensation. We suggest storage containers are regularly inspected to check for any condensation. It is not wise to shut the doors and leave over the winter. Most containers have some ventilation.
Yes we supply new and used jack-leg cabins and modular buildings built to order. If we have suitable second hand stock we will suggest a layout to meet your requirement and price. If new we will work with you to come up with a design to your budget.
Our preference is by BACS, otherwise a cheque, in some cases by card. Please note our payment terms on our invoices which include all our bank details.
