about us


Lion Containers Ltd was established in 2012. Since then we have grown from strength to strength; we now turn over in excess of 10 million pound per year, have nationwide depots and turn over approximately 400 containers per week which includes container modification jobs. We also have Biomass, Chemical, Offshore and Modular Site Solution arms to our business, ensuring we can provide a complete one-stop stop service to those industries that benefit from the use of containers. We are the biggest container modifications company in the UK, and no other shipping container company has the expert level of staff we have nor do they have the prestigious client base that we have.

Our container sales and modifications services include:

  • Local services and customer visits: We work together with you and your colleagues to ensure we achieve the correct end product.
  • A dedicated account manager: From initial enquiry to project build, delivery and after sales.
  • CAD drawing services: We provide an accurate interpretation of your container conversion and to ensure that the container you want is the container you get.
  • Full project management: Including snagging report at depot prior to delivery to your site.
  • Organisation of delivery: As well as off-loading relative to your container conversion.
  • Full after-sales support: Our fully trained, expert staff are able to guide you through your requirement from start to finish.

Lion Containers Ltd are able to provide equipment from nationwide container depots. Our standard equipment predominantly turns into Felixstowe, Southampton, London, Birmingham, Leeds and Liverpool. This equipment is then shunted using various haulage contractors to our other storage facilities in Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester, Warrington, South London and Scotland. Our main area of business is converting shipping containers into bespoke facilities for a range of industries and uses. Our conversions can range from paintwork and lining to bespoke retail units, workshops, offices and much more. The container conversions are carried out in our Warrington and London depots by our dedicated and skilled teams. The teams within the depots consist of NICEIC certified electricians, trained and certified welders, licenced fork lift and spreader drivers, carpenters, painters, steel fabricators and engineers. Our ability to turn equipment around in the various depots is managed quickly and efficiently by all involved, with 400 containers leaving for Lion Containers Ltd weekly.

New 20ft Container for a Farm

It was a pleasure to do business with you all and the truck driver was amazing. The container is in place with no disruption at all. Arrived when Amber said it would Thank you for a good service.


Perfect Delivery with No Disruption

Hope you are well. I just wanted to send a quick email to say thanks, the delivery went great this morning. Paul arrived bang on 8am and was finished dropping the container by 8:30am so there was no disruption at all. Thank you once again for all you help!


Yet again Lion come up trumps!

Over the last 5 years Lion Containers have provided three bespoke container conversions for Hereford Skatepark. The first was our unique Boom Box building using two 40ft’s one on top of the other. The second a 20ft storage unit painted green to merge into the habitat and last week a 20ft Shelter for skatepark users. Always totally reliable, a pleasure to work with and happy to consider any design brief – you couldn’t ask for anything more. Big thanks to Lion Containers from everyone at Hereford Skatepark!

40ft Storage Containers? for a Garden Centre

The containers are absolutely superb! Very pleased with the quality. Your delivery drivers were very good as well, they make the job look easy.


Used 40ft Container for an Abbatoir

The containers have arrived and even managed to survive the rough crossing and this weekend’s storm. Thank you so much for everything, you’ve both been incredibly helpful especially as it was a complicated delivery. We are really happy with the containers and can’t wait for the weather to dry up so we can get them in place. Well done both of you, and many thanks.
