A host of VIPS and celebrities have already chartered the yacht from ranging from month long cruises around the med and the caribbean to weekend charters for the Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes film festival.

Container Hire and Sales – Shipping Container Hire UK | Portable Space

CONTAINER HIRE

From our base in Manchester, we provide a complete range of storage containers for hire and sale throughout the UK.

  • With minimum rental periods of only 4 weeks hiring a storage or shipping container is a cost-effective and popular means of providing storage for construction sites, factories, businesses and households. Types of storage available include:
  • Shipping container hire – 8ft, 10ft, 20ft and 40ft in a range of types and prices, starting from just £12 per week for the cheapest 20ft hire
  • 12ft, 20ft and 24ft storage containers compatible for stacking with the Portable Space steel cabin range
  • A portable 3m flat pack storage container for use on sites with limited vehicle access
  • A choice of two sizes of bunded stores for the storage of products and liquids that might be damaging to the environment.

BESPOKE CONTAINER CONVERSIONS

We are inspired by the ideas and enquiries that we regularly receive to use, reuse or upcycle shipping containers and our experienced team is well placed to turn your ideas into reality.
We also encourage you to quite literally think outside of the box as we like a container challenge. Here are some ideas to consider:
Swimming pools, Finnish saunas, infra-red hot rooms, hot tubs, museum exhibits, festival entrances, disaster relief, underground bunkers, bike jumps, nightclubs, outdoor workshops, gyms, fitness centres, rooms for hot yoga.

CONTAINER CONVERSIONS FOR USE OVERSEAS

With some conversion projects, we are required to ship the finished container overseas in which case it will be essential that we maintain the plating certificate that enables the container to be delivered worldwide by international container transport.
If overseas shipping is needed, it is crucial that we are told at the start of the project so that we can incorporate additional structural integrity to cope with being stacked under six other fully loaded containers.
It is also useful to note that any conversion with significant apertures for doors, windows or vents will not be suitable for transport by rail, as a result of the significant air pressures that occur as trains pass at speed.
Depending on the amount of design work required and the complexity of the project we usually charge for undertaking detailed drawings, but once you place the order with us this is fully credited on your final invoice.

ACCOMMODATION

Containers are easily converted and modified to provide both temporary and permanent accommodation, including offices, canteens, meeting rooms, toilets, showers, sleeping and living areas.
These units can then be used domestically in the UK or shipped around the world via the global container network, by boat, sea and lorry.
Accommodation containers can be used in many different settings including within the education sector for classrooms or meeting spaces, commercial office developments, refugee camps and disaster relief, factory control rooms, weighbridge and goods-in offices, and remote accommodation needed for oil, gas and mining companies involved in exploration or production.

CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY

The construction industry has used converted shipping containers for many years and continues to be a significant sector, predominantly helping site managers to meet legal requirements to provide suitable standards of welfare accommodation as outlined in the CDM regulations.
Containers are used to create a facility for making hot drinks and warming up food, space to change, store and dry clothes and provide toilets and showers. In addition well-designed site containers make excellent project offices and meeting spaces.
Converted from 20ft or 40fts containers this type of accommodation is easily moved from project to project both nationally and internationally if required.

HOUSING ASSOCIATIONS & STUDENT ACCOMMODATION

Housing associations often provide the first step on the ladder for many people to move into rented accommodation and with chronic shortages of housing in many areas, we believe that shipping containers could help. There have been a number of recent examples around the UK where planning has been granted for ‘Meanwhile’ use. This is usually a temporary permission that enables a prime area of land to be used before it is needed for something else and often this goes hand in hand with economic regeneration of areas to create new and vibrant communities.
The benefit of using container-based homes in these situations is that once the area is ready for total redevelopment they can be moved on to help new areas in the same way.
Shipping containers are ideal for Individual living and provide a perfect size and base for a single person or bunk accommodation such as at activity centres or for student accommodation.

HOMES OF ARCHITECTURAL SIGNIFICANCE

Containers are perfect for creating iconic structures and designs for homes of architectural significance – or for temporary accommodation at high-end campsites or glamping sites. With their straight lines and square frame, the design lends itself well to a very modern looking structure. However its important to note that they are not necessarily a more economical alternative to traditional construction as there are significant structural challenges in order to meet building and energy regulations.
If you are an architect or developer and already have detailed plans for a containerised home, please get in touch and we will be able to work with you and help to transform your ideas into reality.

PLANT ROOMS AND EQUIPMENT HOUSES

Shipping containers provide a wide range of end users with a self-contained and easily-movable space, taking up a small footprint in which specialist and valuable equipment can be installed.
They can house power generation equipment and storage, 5G telecoms, broadband, as well as specialist equipment used by defence companies, biomass energy producers and the rail network.
Often designed to incorporate plug and play features, specialist equipment can be installed quickly and easily in a factory environment before onward shipping, either domestically or internationally. For example we have supplied many containers for field scale solar farms and, rather than electricians trying to install specialist transformers in a muddy field, these can be prepped in a factory leaving just a few simple connections made on-site.
Converted containers offer an extremely time-saving solution compared to building from scratch.
Recent projects have seen containers prepped to accommodate radar technology, spray booth equipment and electrical transformers for onward shipping to Africa.

CONTAINER CAFÉS

Container Café conversions are probably our most popular retail container enquiry, providing an ideal environment for both start-up businesses and franchises.
Quick and easy to design and build, they can be in the form of a kiosk, booth or pop-up shop and moved around from event to event, place to place or festival to festival.
Just like the container that has travelled the world, its culinary uses are truly global, serving pizza or ice cream from Italy, tacos from Mexico, sandwiches from Kent, pasties from Cornwall, sausages from Lincolnshire, or just selling good quality local produce.

CONTAINERISED BARS

Nearly all events have a bar, whether it’s at a live concert, festival, street fair, carnival or seasonal market.
Shipping containers provide a striking space that is portable, easy to set up and simple to remove afterwards.

SEASONAL OR PERMANENT RETAIL STORAGE CONTAINERS

Most retail shops have a peak season, often around Christmas or Easter. Shops also have surplus outside space especially those on retail parks.
If you are the manager of a retail outlet, shipping containers are an ideal way to help you store and manage seasonal stocks so that you don’t let customers down.
These storage containers can be converted with extras such as lights, anti-condensation coatings and we can supply containers with easy-opening handles too so everyone can operate the doors and access the stock quickly and safely.

TURNSTILES AND ACCESS EQUIPMENT

Smart technology has prompted a recent increase in demand for turnstile units, which range in complexity from simple card readers to highly sophisticated biometrics entry systems.
The shipping container provides a perfect place to install and protect this equipment, whether a single, double or multiple turnstile unit is required.
In addition to helping to protect against theft or terrorism at construction sites, infrastructure projects or airports, turnstile software can also be used for recording attendance at work for example for safety or clocking in reasons. On construction sites turnstiles are now commonly used to restrict access to only those who have completed site inductions, security clearance or hold the relevant safety cards.
The Portable Space turnstile units can be connected to a range of different software systems so if you have specific entry software we can usually provide a suitable system for your contractor to connect to. Turnstile containers are also available to rent, excluding the software required.

SAFETY & STORAGE OF HAZARDOUS / FLAMMABLE GOODS

Chemicals, flammable liquids and gases need to be safely stored, to prevent potential harm to humans, animals or animal health and to protect the environment in the event of a spillage or leak.
Examples of companies we have worked with include motor and aviation repair workshops to store lubricants, schools and hospitals to store cleaning materials, agricultural and horticultural businesses to meet BASIS standards for the storage of agro-chemicals and laboratories for the storage of chemicals and gases. We have even worked with defence companies dealing with ammunition to create specialist rooms for the preparation of munitions.
Shipping containers provide a versatile base unit to design a suitable specialist storage container. We can help you create bunded containerised spaces with pedestrian or forklift access, for pallets, ISO tanks, drums, bags or small container which include features such as intrinisically safe lighting, insulation, frost protection, natural or mechanised air extraction, mezzanine shelving, racking and more.
If you have a need for specialised bunded storage container, please contact us with with a list of all the regulations that need to be met for the safe storage of your specific products.

Shipping Container Housing UK: Container Homes For Sale UK

CREATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR MODERN LIVING – Modern Modular & Prefab Container Homes

We believe everyone should be able to own their own home. But the odds are stacked against them. Buying or renting property is expensive and there’s a general shortage of land and accommodation nationwide. That’s why we started building NextGen container homes.

After years in the business of using containers as housing and business accommodation, we thought it was time someone came up with an idea that would make it easy for people to find cheaper, more relevant and creative solutions to fit their needs. What mattered was that it was new, quick to build and created the opportunity to get on the ladder for fraction of the cost of investing in bricks and mortar.

NextGen container houses are innovative, modular, portable buildings suited to many lifestyles and needs and are excellent value for money. Whether you need a complete housing solution for large numbers of people or a cottage at the bottom of your garden, a NextGen container home provides a superb place to call home for a fraction of the cost of a traditionally built dwelling.

Local authorities, housing associations and NGOs: Housing for vulnerable people – homeless, elderly, disabled and low income families and individuals.

-Owner-occupiers and family members: independent space for teenagers, students and relatives.

-Businesses: offices, workshops and on-site staff accommodation.

NextGen purpose-built container homes: the automatic choice

Brand new. Designed, specified and built entirely off site. We do not recycle old shipping containers. A NextGen container house will not have been exposed to sea water or rough handling in transit. Unlike many shipping containers, our floors are solid steel and our roofs pressure-bowed to allow rain run-off. And they have a 10-year warranty too.

Custom-built. You decide on the layout, fixtures, fittings, décor and access and security systems, according to your budget. Your container home can be as simple or sophisticated as you like.

Great price. A 20′ x 8′ fully fitted container home suitable for temporary accommodation can be bought for £12,995 (+VAT). A 40′ x 12′ permanent dwelling fully compliant with building regulations comes in at an amazing £34,995 (+VAT). Prices and Sizes.

Fast delivery. Your home can be installed and ready to move into in just 12 weeks. We deliver anywhere in the UK. Delivery options.

Fits in anywhere. Container homes work in small spaces, urban infill sites, off-grid locations and plots unsuitable for brick-built developments. In most cases you won’t need planning permission, except for protected buildings and landscape.

Versatile. Multiple applications for local authorities, housing associations, NGOs, owner-occupiers, small businesses and people with health or mobility issues.

Comfortable. You can equip your container house with just about any home comforts you like to suit your lifestyle – all the usual, modern conveniences, plus cosy wood burners, stylish wet rooms and more.

Safer than houses. Extremely robust and fitted with a range of security features, including shutters, locks, sensor lighting and alarms. All of our units are also 30 minute Fire Rated.

Modular. Several container houses can be linked and stacked on top of one another to create the housing configuration you require, complete with doors, windows and stairs.

A quick fix for a housing shortage. Container homes make efficient use of brownfield sites and provide good living standards. Their small footprint and modular capabilities maximise available land.
