Shipping Container Hotels and Catering Units

Whether as the basis for hotel conversions, catering units or secure on-site storage, shipping containers are suitable for a range of uses in the hotel and hospitality industry.

Using Shipping Containers for Hotel Storage

From Snoozebox and Travelodge to Denham Country Park’s Eco Pod, hotels are increasingly using repurposed and converted containers as alternative forms of accommodation thanks to their adaptive qualities. Shipping containers are by design, made to carry heavy loads and be stackable, with near limitless customisation options.

Similarly, hotels are using shipping containers to store furniture, linen / laundry items and supplies in a safe and secure manner. Available in a range of sizes, and delivered within days to your site, our storage containers are an effective solution for hospitality businesses who require on-site storage at short notice.

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!
