This Valentine’s Day we’re showing shipping containers some serious love. As the UK’s leading distributor of storage and modified shipping containers, it’s fair to say we’re container crazy all year round! So, to celebrate Valentine’s Day 2023, here are the top five things we love about our boxes…
They make for the perfect retail space
Modified shipping containers are the UK’s fastest growing choice of business and retail space – and for good reason! They’re adaptable, can be kitted out to suit almost any requirement and can easily be powered up electrically through plug-and-go technology. If you’ve got an eye on your carbon footprint, they can even be powered by fitted solar panels. The possibilities for a shipping container work space really are endless.

When you think of a shipping container, you may not instantly think of an aesthetically pleasing structure. But don’t forget, new and used containers can be modified to change their appearance.
Whether you want your branding splashed all over your shipping container, or you need it cladded to compliment its surroundings, the aesthetic potential is endless!

For secure storage, you really need look no further than a shipping container. All new shipping containers come with factory-fitted lockboxes for the utmost security, so you can store your equipment, tools, domestic possessions and other valuables, knowing that they’ll be safe.
Cheaper than permanent structures
Whether it’s home office space, a shop front or secure storage that you’re after, a modified shipping container offers more cost-effective benefits than a bricks and mortar build. Investing in a shipping container could, in fact, ease some of those cost of living challenges we’re all feeling in our pockets at the moment – click here to find out how.
With a sporadic bit of maintenance and some general tender loving care (all year, not just for Valentine’s), shipping containers maintain their condition remarkably well. This means that either storage or converted containers are easy to resell once you are finished with them.
