As one of the UK’s shipping container conversion specialists, S Jones Containers was approached by boat rental providers GoBoat London, who were looking for a bespoke container conversion to act as a kiosk for serving customers.

Following a review of viable container conversion providers, GoBoat engaged in detailed conversations with our specialist conversions team before opting for a new 10ft container complete with a serving hatch, lined out with 12mm MFC, counter top and lights.

To begin the process, the S Jones conversions team created a series of detailed CAD images, providing a clear representation of how GoBoat’s vision would look in reality. Once this was signed off, GoBoat London promptly ordered the unit.

Kiosk Design and Build

Naturally, GoBoat required the kiosk to be located beside a canal, presenting logistical challenges that would make delivery especially complex. Fortunately, we took these considerations into account from the outset, working closely with one of our hauliers to circumvent any issues and wheel the container into place. This enabled us to deliver the unit both on time and in perfect condition. Once in place, GoBoat commissioned a street artist to add an eye-catching flair to the container. 

Speaking on the project’s success, Julian Wootton, Co-Founder of GoBoat London commented,

“From start to finish, the service we received from S Jones Containers was excellent. We were looking for a company who could deliver a high quality product, at a responsible price, within a fairly challenging timescale. They successfully achieved all of that, and were really good at effective and timely communications along the journey. We are delighted with our product. I would recommend them to anyone looking into containers.”
