Shipping Container Conversions

Shipping containers are renowned for their qualities of strength, security, longevity and portability, making them an ideal structure from which to construct buildings for many uses at a cost that beats that of traditional buildings. Used 20ft shipping containers and used 40ft shipping containers represent excellent value for money as a starting point for container conversions. Our converted shipping containers are versatile, modern and durable, and cover a wide variety of purposes from pop-up shops to animal shelters. As well as creating bespoke conversions we also hold standard shipping container conversions in stock, such as basic offices and chemical stores.

We have undertaken high-end engineering work for the MOD and worked with clubs and charities delivering bespoke budget workshops and offices.

Profound Decisions made the profound decision to purchase three containers from us. Two were simply repainted and treated with Grafotherm (28ft and 20ft), while the third (28ft) was converted with side doors, windows, interior partition, vinyl flooring, electrics and ply lining.

"The entire process was excellent. Delivery company were particularly superb - and the product looks excellent. We will definitely be back for more soon!"

Our client, Go Below Underground Adventures, requested a 10ft container conversion, with extra thick ply lining, a personnel door with anti vandal shroud, vinyl flooring and black repaint.

"Really pleased with the container conversion" Miles

Mid Herts Divers club ordered a 24ft container conversion modified with additional side doors, ply lining and insulation, louvre vents and external repainting.

"We previously purchased a smaller container from you, and as you gave us such good service then , it was a very easy option to order a further unit from you.
The whole experience was faultless and you excelled once again."

Pete Hodkin
