30ft Kitchen / Dry room

This used 30ft Container was converted into an open plan kitchen with a small drying room. This is great value for money if you’re not too bothered about a couple of dents on the outside of the unit: a used container could be a good option as they are still wind and watertight units. If we do an internal line-out, you wouldn’t know the difference between a new and used shipping container from the inside. This particular unit was to be used on a building site in Scotland for workers to have their breaks / dinners and to use the drying room to get changed. Internally, it was fully lined in melamine boards and insulated with full electrics including heaters, lights and sockets, in addition to being externally painted in non-corrosive container paint.

30ft Store with Large Double Doors

This customer got in contact with Universal Containers looking for a low-cost, used, storage unit. He needed it to be 30ft long and wanted very large openings in the side to accommodate large items. We would have offered full side access containers but as they only come in 40ft and 20ft sizes, we had to think outside the box. After considering the most cost-effective solution, we came up with the idea of 2 custom-made fabricated doors, each fitted with a secure lock box. This unit originally started life as a 40ft container and was cut down to 30ft to fit the customer’s desired specification. The same customer also requested a 10ft container which were able to produce from the off-cut of the original 40ft container. This meant that he ended up with 2 containers for the price of 1! The unit was then externally painted in a grey anti corrosive container paint to protect it for years to come.

  • 1 30ft used container cut down from a 40ft
  • 2 Large fabricated double doors added with lock and lockboxes
  • Externally painted single choice of RAL colour
