Container Houses and Extensions
Many customers have approached us about the possibility of creating a home or living space out of shipping containers. In order to achieve this there are a number of basic components required to make your container(s) habitable, Lion Containers Ltd have not sought any advice from building regulations regarding this, however, the following format is the most popular requested by our customers using containers for similar projects:

For this build it was decided that flat pack accommodation units would work best due to their flexible structure, reasonable cost and ease of delivery. Read more below.

Delivering Your Container
We have a small team of trusted hauliers working for us here in the UK. Deliveries normally take place between 7am-8pm, Monday to Friday, however we can work outside of these times if so wished. We also provide site visits to those more tricky delivery areas, all members of our team have passed their CSCS card test. This means that they are able to visit sites in order to reduce accidents and drive up on-site efficiency. Should you require your container for shipping purposes, we can provide you with a CSC Verification Certificate, our professionals will test and certify your new or used 40ft container to ensure it is structurally sound and safe to ship your cargo by vessel.
New 20ft Container for Home Extension
I have been keeping an eye on your website and Facebook page through out my project, great to see lots of cool projects that you're involved with!
Thank you for the smooth transaction and delivery of my last 20ft container from you and every one that helped from lion. I have successfully managed to convert it into a nice little living space having four windows and a extra door to accommodate a bed, wood burner, desk and home cinema system with a projector, I will try to get some pics of to you when I have a moment. I have loved the whole project and as initially planned I am now looking into an extension for a kitchen, bathroom and storage / work shop area...
