S Jones Containers Blog
We were recently approached by a company who provide boutique camping accommodation at some of the UK's favourite music festivals. Their requirement was for a space that could serve as a flexible transport container as well as a public facing customer reception.
Katt, Project Manager at Pitch Village commented, 'S Jones were fantastic, helping us design a bespoke unit full of features such as power sockets, lighting and anti-condensation treatment - as well as more bespoke elements such as welcoming bi-folding doors, and an integrated shelving system. We are delighted with our S Jones container and look forward to working with them in the future.'

We’ve recently completed and delivered a container which has been converted into a bar which forms part of a quirky outdoor events area at the newly renovated Beech House pub in Solihull. The bar features an oak laminate food safe worktop with bi-folding doors, an under counter washer unit, chillers and bar units with power sockets. The container bar has been painted in a vibrant green and a polyester awning has been attached to the roof to keep customers dry whilst enjoying a beverage or two!
Outside the container bar is an impressive tepee which boasts ambient lighting and wooden seating which can accommodate up to 120 guests for all sorts of celebrations. Dan, General Manager of the Beech House, pictured below with our MD Andrew Jones says he has received over 50 bookings for private parties in the last month!
Just another example of how versatile shipping containers are. We can turn customers’ creative ideas into reality. Our team is knowledge based and highly informed with technical know-how.

Our Depot Manager Andy Cargill is going under the razor on Friday 26th August for Macmillan cancer support.
For 10 years Andy’s Mum, Liz, has been looked after by Macmillan after the diagnosis of a brain tumour.
Andy commented “I cannot put in to words the affect that cancer has had on our family. Macmillan have been a tremendous support to both my Mum and Dad so because of this I would like to raise as much money as possible so Macmillan can continue to support those who need it.”
Andy has had long hair since he was 15 but it will all be coming off on Friday, a day before Andy’s Mum & Dad’s 45th wedding anniversary!
Please give what you can, it will all be extremely gratefully received and it all makes a difference. Macmillan makes a real difference to real people's lives; when they need it most.
