Tailored Service

We pride ourselves on our service, people, experience and our ability to supply any container to anywhere in the UK.

Every customer has different needs and because of fluctuations in the market and other variables, delivery for example, S Jones Containers quotes specific, fixed container prices directly from our container sales department for each individual sale or hire enquiry, therefore you are always getting the best container price available at the time.

We are able to offer a personalised service to ensure your needs are met whether you require one or more containers.

Hired containers can be purchased from us at any time when on hire at a negotiated container price.

Please contact us by free phone or email with details of your requirements and delivery point and we will be pleased to confirm a fixed delivered shipping container price with absolutely no obligation and advise on what accessories may enhance the operation of your container.

About Our Shipping Containers

Shipping containers are of all welded steel construction except the floors which are made of load bearing marine-ply over steel cross bearers. Containers typically have two weather sealed steel doors at one end hinged at or towards the outside edges with full height locking gear that attaches at the top and bottom. Additional security measures can be provided, (see  Contain-A-Lock® security accessories). Our containers are free standing, self contained units with lifting points at each corner, weather proof, and very secure.

Security fittings such as our patented ‘Contain-A-Lock’® padlock shroud and a high security padlock and any further modification or conversion including repainting a new colour or condensation inhibition are also available, (see Container Accessories).

Shipping Your Container

To enable your container to ship your freight overseas, a current ‘CSC Safety Approval’ plate must be fitted. We are certified to carry out CSC approval if required on used containers. New containers are within CSC approval for up to 5 years from the date of original manufacture and the cost is incorporated in our container prices.

Our experienced sales team can advise on the above and help you decide what is most suitable for your need.

Good communication, delivered on the day they said it would, and container placed in position by a very capable driver.

Sale, Landscape Gardener, Tamworth

From start to finish the process was simple and they guided us through along the way, we were able to pick the day when our container was to arrive and as we're a school this was important to us and well received. The delivery driver was fantastic, nothing was an issue for him, our tight turns through only just big enough gates were no problem, he placed it exactly where we wanted it and he did the whole process of getting back out of the site backwards! All the staff that I have dealt with have been very helpful. If we need another container (i'm already thinking about it) i'll be using them again.
