Ordered 2 x 20ft containers, they arrived in exactly 2 weeks as had to wait for anti-condensation coating to be applied. I was disappointed the paint used on the lock box modification does not match the green of the container but thats a minor point. The delivery guy was great.

Containers for Hire FAQs

Do you deliver to any accessible location and include off-loading?

If you buy a shipping container and require immediate use of it as soon as it is delivered, don’t worry. We offer industry-leading container delivery project management services to ensure everything goes according to plan when a large, crane-equipped vehicle arrives on site.

As part of this, we provide a complete transport and delivery service, including the lift-off and positioning the container just where you want it.

We can provide a transferral service if you require changing the container’s location, and we provide a no-hassle collection service when a container is off hired.

We only use experienced and proven transport services that are reliable and helpful at the most important time, ensuring your container is positioned and placed as you wish. (If there are technical issues to be considered we can advise you on this as well).

How can I make sure my container is secure?

As well as shipping containers for sale, we stock security accessories too. Customers often need a couple of additional items for their new or second-hand container. These can be supplied fitted, separate or in bulk orders, see our Container Accessories page for details;

  • High quality, high-security sliding shackle ‘block’ padlocks
  • 5mm steel padlock shrouds with 15mm drilled hasps, all weld on

Why should I buy a container from S Jones Containers?

We exist for our customers, who we enjoy working with on a friendly and personal basis.

You will not find a more approachable team of people who always put you first in the quest for your satisfaction.

Much of our business is repeat business; our customers just keep coming back to buy shipping containers from us.  They also come to S Jones for storage and conversion container solutions.  Please contact us with your specific sales and hire requirements – or phone 0808 159 5339.

Can you create a custom shipping container?

Yes, a standard shipping container has such a good basic design that it can be converted into many custom uses. It can be lined, insulated, fitted with additional doors, windows and electrics. It can also be shortened to fit a specific space or use and can be modified/ converted to a host of modular uses.

How long have you worked with containers?

We have continuous experience and heritage with containers stretching back to the early 1970’s, and over 20 years’ experience specifically around container sales, hire and conversions that we will gladly share with you so you get the best possible container solution for your situation.

No-one else in the industry that we know of can say the same.

Do you offer a mobile service?

Although it might seem odd to be offering a mobile service for containers that are mainly used for static storage, we know you don’t want to bring your container to us.

Help is at hand, whether you’d like new fittings installed, running repairs, maintenance and painting, or structural work.

Our mobile workshop is fitted with 110 volt electricity, a heavy duty MIG welder and cutting equipment. We can carry out most jobs other than major structural work from this van, just call and ask.
