"I keep reindeer, and I have a lot of them. For 11 months of the year I need somewhere to keep their many reins, I also have a few big sleighs that I need storage for. I would prefer to keep all of this together, and would really like a container. My elf friend has a horse (yes, it's a funny sight!), and he stores their tack in a container, so I think it would be great for my reindeer too."
I have the perfect container storage solution for you! I have a brilliant conversion idea that will suit you and make all your problems disappear, and the best thing is you won’t have to worry about this anymore as these containers will last you a lifetime! (Well a regular human’s life time anyway!!) Even if you didn’t need your containers anymore we offer a buyback scheme >>
Modifying containers is what we do best here at Lion Containers. My advice to you would be to have two 40ft new (once shipped) containers with the sides removed then welded together to maximise your storage space. We could convert this for you and install heaters and high quality insulation so you keep nice and warm whilst doing your work inside the container and keeping that horrible condensation out! We can all imagine how cold you must be after delivering all those presents! Joining two 40ft new containers together would give you more than enough room to store your reins and sleighs! We can also offer you much more accessories that would be beneficial for your situation!
The containers will be adapted to suit your bespoke requirements. There are a couple of options we can offer for insulating and lining the walls of your unit however I would suggest applying spray foam insulation with fire boards to finish – we know those Christmas tree lights can be a bit dangerous sometimes! We will provide you with container shelving, hooks and cupboards so you can put your reins and cloaks away without any hassle, and your container will be kept neat and tidy. You won’t even have to think about how you’re going to get those sleighs in there; we can take care of that by supplying you with a heavy duty ramp, we wouldn’t want Santa to get a bad back! Because you’re going to be using the container quite often, we can also provide you with Anti-Vandal Windows, and of course the obvious... electrics. We will supply and fit all your electrics for you; this includes anti-corrosive strip lights, twin sockets, heaters and your connection points. To make it even more efficient for yourself we provide custom container canopies, so you won’t have to get your little helpers to scrape all that snow off your roof.
Do you ever get any trouble from the abominable Snowman? I’ve heard he can cause quite a stir around your parts. I’d strongly recommend that you have one of our fitted high security lockboxes and insurance rated padlocks as well – that’ll stop him getting in to your units!
I know you’re the best at special deliveries but hopefully we can help there too. Our dedicated hauliers will be able to deliver your container all the way to the North Pole and off-load it using one of our hi-ab cranes! We will send a team to site to set the containers up for you so they just need to be plugged in and they’re ready to go!
To transform two of our standard shipping containers into this practical and cost effective solution and deliver the units would only take us 4 weeks! I do hope to hear from you soon Santa, especially those bells over my roof on Christmas eve! I’ll have the mince pies and carrots ready!
All the best, Priya
PS. I have attached a photo of me with my Elf hat on.. just in case you need a bit of extra help.. I’m sure I’d do a great job!
