If you are planning building works or an expansion, whether it's for your home, business or a large organisation such as a school or hospital, you'll be wanting 'business as usual' while the work is completed. So how do you minimise disruption and continue normal service while surrounded by the disruption brought by building works? Using shipping containers is the ideal solution, providing temporary, economical accommodation to continue operating from.

Containers Direct frequently work with clients from both the private and public sector to convert containers suitable for whatever temporary purpose is required while construction projects are implemented.

Why shipping containers are the solution

  • Flexible – can be adapted to a wide variety of uses, from living space to classrooms, reception areas. toilets and canteens
  • Low cost – shipping containers make the cheapest temporary structures available
  • Secure – made entirely from steel, shipping containers are theft and vandal proof
  • Fast turnover time for delivery and installation
  • And we'll even buy back afterwards! As shipping containers are fully reusable, we regularly re-purchase from our clients once their building works are completed

Examples of our temporary container accomodation

Our recent temporary accommodation provisions include two 40ft containers sent to Blackpool Hospital, to support their car park and building developments. We lined the containers and joined them together lengthways, to use as a temporary entrance building. Take a look at the pictures below to see the transformation!

Portable cabins

As well as converting shipping containers for use as temporary site accommodation, we can also provide purpose built portable cabins. These come in a range of sizes and fitted facilities, or you can request a customised conversion.
