When you think ‘shipping container’, you may think ‘big ticket item’, or ‘big up front cost’. But as we all begin to feel the squeeze of the country’s cost of living crisis, there are in fact private and business-related investments which can, ease the overall challenges facing our finances in both the short and long term. And as the UK’s most competitive distributor of storage and converted shipping containers, at Lion we know that these investments do not need to break the bank.
Here are five ways a shipping container could ease the cost of living challenges facing you…
1. Fewer overheads than more permanent storage
The solution to your storage needs don’t need to require an excessive financial investment. A used shipping container is easier on the pocket than a new ‘one-trip’ box, and can offer all of the same security guarantees. Click here to find out how a cost-effective used shipping container can suit your requirements during the cost of living crisis.
2. The most cost effective business space
Whether it’s a retail space, eatery, workshop, studio or office that you are after, converted shipping containers offer a much more cost effective business space than traditional bricks and mortar. With fewer overheads and less long term commitment, you can concentrate on building a thriving business whilst alleviating the stresses of eye-watering high street business rates.

3. Cheaper than a house extension
We could all do with a bit of extra space at home, whether it be for household storage, a home office, a garden shed or even a video games den. A simple converted container can do just the trick, without the huge financial investment that comes with a permanent house extension.
4. Plug-and-Go Technology
When it comes to electricals, converted shipping containers do not require the same high-cost infrastructure investment as more permanent builds. Their plug-and-go technology is much cheaper and can be fitted in as little as half a day.
With the sporadic bit of maintenance and some general TLC, shipping containers maintain their condition remarkably well, meaning that either storage or converted containers are easy to resell once you are finished with them.
