“Hello, we hold a quarterly farmers market in Somerset, and are looking into how we can use containers. Our markets are held in the middle of the street, and initially we were looking at having a basic 20ft container for storage of tables, chairs and gazebos. We are still interested in this, but after looking at your site, we thought about having some container stalls (for flowers, plants, fruit and veg) and also some toilets. Can you send us some info please? Any other ideas will be gratefully received. Regards, Rachel”
20ft container for storage of chairs, tables and gazebos, I would recommend a 20ft quality used A grade container. This unit is guaranteed 2 years wind and watertight and will do the job for storage. We even offer a guaranteed buy back on our units which is valid within 5 years of purchasing your container, so if you need to sell it back just get back in touch with us on 0333 600 6260.
We manufacture and modify units to meet our customers bespoke requirements so when it comes to creating your stalls to place your flowers, plants, fruit and vegetables, we have the right team for the job. This does not apply to only farmers this can apply to craft suppliers, local cheese suppliers, and even beer and cider suppliers. Your container even has an option to be re-painted to any colour you wish. This will give it a nice spring season feeling and can incorporate your company colours to help you stand out in the crowds.
We offer a range of accessories such as
windows which will allow a nice breeze to pass through on to your plants so they are not suffocated! Also, when the windows are closed on those typical British, rainy summer days, fitted louvre vents will help to keep the air flowing around your container. As the weather starts to warm up and flowers start to bloom it is very important they are looked after and cared for properly. Daily access to your container can be made so much easier by fitting one of our easy access
personnel doors, or even
roller shutters! These doors are extremely secure as they are fitted with a 10 point locking system as standard and come with up to six keys for you and your team. Some other options and container types to consider might be a
side opening container, this will special piece of equipment allows you to have access from the original cargo doors you would find on your standard container, and you can even access your container from the side cargo doors. We have converted standard containers into canteens with serving hatches in the past. This does not mean it only applies to businesses who supply food, but it can be used for businesses that have products to serve to their customers. Another great option would be a tunnel container. This particular unit has cargo doors at each end of the container allowing you to store items, and get items in and out of the container with ease. Another great idea I would recommend is
heavy duty long span shelving. The reason I think this would be so great is because it will allow you to store all your plants, and equipment away easily and tidily with no mess and clutter on the containers marine ply floor.
