Shop and Retail Container Conversions

The basic modular design and robust structure of shipping containers are making them a popular building material choice with many people. One of the most common enquiries of this type we receive is converting a container into retail space, either as a permanent structure or as the increasingly popular  ‘pop-up shop’. The size of your shipping container retail space can vary according to location and budget, we have had experience in converting standard 20ft containers to small  ‘pop-up shops’ with roller shutter serving hatches for the sale of merchandise during the London Olympics, and have also created structures for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games (see below). Similarly, we have had input in a number of shipping containers being converted into larger retail properties in an urban environment. As shipping containers come in standard 20ft and 40ft sizes, they are easy to stack together and with minimal conversion can be fabricated into a much larger structure.

We created a “boombox” style unit out of 2 x 40ft containers, this was used as a skate shop, recreational area and kitchen for a skatepark. 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.
