Shipping Containers

Our shipping container conversions can be designed to suit a wide range of purposes. Whether you’re looking for a bespoke storage solution or a custom-made venue for your business, we will support you every step of the way…

What Is A Converted Shipping Container?

Shipping container conversions are units that have been refitted with features and accessories, such as access doors, windows, shelving, and other custom elements. They’re a great solution for businesses that need bespoke storage solutions, such as battery storage rooms, switchgear rooms, office spaces and workshops that have robust safety systems built into their design from the outset.

We design and manufacture shipping container conversions for 10ft, 20ft, and 40ft containers. Our industry-leading engineering capabilities set us apart from the rest – through our extensive experience building complex solutions, we’ll work with you to create your custom converted shipping container. We also have stock shipping container conversions available immediately, ready to ship across the UK.

great reliable and informative service already looking at using S Jones again on another project

3rd Jul 2024

I just wanted to thank everyone at S.Jones for the brilliant, professional service throughout the whole process of buying and delivering my container and also for their patience whilst we coped with very unhelpful weather on site. Special thanks to Rachel and Lorna and Lee at John Butlin & Co. Ltd
Transport and the very helpful, professional and efficient driver on the day. I had never bought a container (which by the way was very smart for a reconditioned one) and they all helped me when I must have been a complete pain at times!

Converted Shipping Container FAQs

What is a converted shipping container?

A converted shipping container is a container unit that has been altered, updated, or customised to suit a specific purpose.  This can include industrial purposes, such as fire-resistant battery storage room, boiler housing, generator enclosure or an on-site insulated office space. Converted shipping containers can also be used for retail and small-business purposes, such as pop-up shops or dining. Learn more about bespoke uses for shipping container conversions.

How long does a shipping container conversion take?

The shipping container conversion process varies depending on the size of container and the type of customisations. For a detailed breakdown of how long the shipping container conversion process will take for your unit, reach out to our team.

What size container offices do you offer?

We can convert a 10ft, 20ft, or 40ft shipping container into a custom-build container office. We also have a variety of ready-to-ship 20ft container offices for sale, if you’re looking for a quick solution for an onsite office or welfare unit. Explore our stock conversions to see what’s available.

Can used shipping containers be customised or converted?

Yes, used shipping containers can be modified to fit your needs. With our variety of shipping container accessories, you can convert a second-hand shipping container to suit many different purposes, such as an office, retail space, or storage unit.  Consider adding doors or windows to improve the atmosphere and accessibility, insulation and lining to make it a more comfortable temperature, and lighting and electrical installations to improve usability.
