The benefits of our shipping containers

Budget Friendly

We stock a large range of used and refurbished shipping containers across our 9 nationwide depots, which are the ideal storage solution if you are on a limited budget. Although these second-hand units are generally older, they are however structurally sound, with wind and watertight qualities. View our range of second hand containers today.

Size Inclusive

We are able to supply shipping containers in a range of shapes and sizes, bespoke to your requirement. 10ft, 20ft, and 40ft are the typical container sizes available. However, we appreciate that these might not be right for you, so here at S Jones we are able to cut, shunt, and modify containers to fit your needs. We also proudly stock high-cube alternatives of standard shipping containers, giving you additional storage space without taking up any extra floor space.

Fit To Your Application

Thanks to the highly versatile qualities of our shipping containers, and the expert knowledge of our team, we can guide you through the process of customising and modifying your container to better suit your application. Whether it be for a common use, such as storage or a workshop tool room, through to more specialist uses like a walk-in cold room or laboratory, we are here to support you.

Bespoke Pricing

When it comes to the pricing of our containers, we think outside the box. Pricing is unique to you and your needs, depending on the size and style of your container, plus any special requirements, additional accessories, or conversion needs.
