As the UK’s leading experts in container conversions, it’s no surprise that every single day, we receive enquiries from all over the country requested containers for many different purposes. Of course, amongst those customers who have a clear idea of what they want, there are those who aren’t quite sure. A lot of customers contact us requesting a standard new or used shipping container with a specific use in mind. However, with simple conversion options, these standard containers can be made much more fit for purpose with the addition of basic fixtures and fittings. The possibilities are endless. Have a look below at some of our most recent container conversions and see if you get inspired!
30ft Allotment Container
This unit was created for a large community allotment in Manchester. The customer wanted a safe, weatherproof, anti-vandal facility on-site where members of the community could take shelter and prepare drinks.
10ft Chemical Store Sub-Bund
This carefully built chemical store was produced for a nationwide hire company, which was put together with our standard COSHH store specifications, making it not only ideal but totally safe for storing hazardous substances.
20ft Bar Conversion
This bespoke bar was created for a North West customer who sought a ‘stand out’ container that he would be able to kit out and use as a bar at his local event venue. Finished with bright colours and specially fabricated, you would never believe this bar started life as a standard container.
32ft x 10ft Green Office Block
This unusual office conversion was produced for a container hire company in the North West of England. The customer wished for the container to retain its corrugated look and to be painted green to stand out.
10ft Tuck Shop
This unit was a bespoke conversion, and was to be used as a serving station for drinks, ice-cream and hot food. With this in mind, the container was fitted with kitchen facilities in addition to a secure hatch window.
20ft Double Door Conversion
This 20ft high cube container was professionally crafted for a University to be used as an office for their site in Preston. With aluminium, glazed windows and doors fitted at either end of the container, this conversion was unique and wholly fit for purpose.
10ft Orange Store
We were requested – by a large UK hire firm – to create this 10ft shipping container into a basic, secure storage facility. For safety reasons, the customer wished for the container to be finished in a bright colour and after much deliberation, decided on orange. Doesn’t it stand out?
Interesting? We certainly think so! It’s amazing at just how many ways a shipping container can be converted for purpose. Each of our conversions is completely bespoke to the customers needs and there is definitely no job too big or small for our team of professional designers, engineers and fabricators!
