Who We Are
We are S Jones Containers, one of the UK market leaders in the sale, hire and conversion of shipping containers. Established in 1914, we’re a family business whose longstanding success is built on investment in our people and their ideas.
This approach has seen us grow from a humble haulage contractor to a class-leading manufacturer of lithium-ion battery storage units, pop-up restaurants, portable workspaces and everything in-between.
Our work spans sectors and continents.
From sourcing and delivering large volumes of containers to major UK retailers, to supplying the units and guidance entrepreneurs need to launch their Self-Storage businesses, to designing bespoke solutions for water treatment plants and laboratories.Learn More

Lyndon Pryce – Marketing Manager
“Having previously worked with both marketing agencies and larger organisations, it was clear from day one that S Jones was the right choice for me.
The company balances the close-knit team feel of a smaller organisation with the R&D, client roster and capabilities of a much larger organisation. S Jones is a family business in both name and spirit.”
Sarah Green – Sales Manager
“I’ve grown tremendously since joining S Jones in 2012 as an Internal Sales Coordinator. In just two years, I was promoted to Team Leader. After this, I was promoted to Assistant Sales Manager before landing my current role as Sales Manager.
I’m a testament to what happens at S Jones when you have a willingness to learn and take on responsibility. What’s great about S Jones is the investment and support they give you.
When I first joined, I didn’t have much management experience, but I have been nurtured by an amazing team who have always helped me challenge myself and, in doing so, to reap the rewards.”
