Specialised Shipping Containers

Some jobs or sites aren’t standard. Sometimes, you need shipping containers with specialised features – sometimes, you need a totally custom solution.

Thankfully, we have a full range of specialised shipping containers available for hire and purchase.

What Is a Specialised Shipping Container?

Most shipping containers are configured in a standard, instantly recognised form: 20 feet long, with double doors at the front.

A specialised shipping container is a container made for a specific purpose or modified to have specific features. This usually includes different sizes and door locations.

Our workshops are on hand to create a truly custom-made shipping container for any purpose:

  • Any size
  • Any layout
  • Any configuration

If you can think it, we can make it.

Ideal for any use

Whatever your needs are, we either stock or can make a shipping container to meet them.

This could include:

  • Containers with extra security
  • Secure site offices
  • Goods storage
  • Playground store
  • Workshop or tool store
  • Shipboard or Offshore quarters
  • Caretaker equipment store

Specialised containers available

As well as offering totally bespoke shipping containers, we have a standard range of specialised shipping containers ready to hire or purchase.

High Cube Containers

Need to store tall items like mini diggers or generators safely and securely?

With an extra foot of height compared to standard containers, High Cube containers offer 9’6” of vertical storage space. This makes them perfect for any secure storage needs.

Available used and new, 20 or 40 feet as standard.

Tunnel Containers

With the same storage space as a standard container, but double the access, tunnel containers are a popular option for good reason.

Our workshops can also separate double-end door containers with internal steel walls, creating a cost-effective pair of containers in one neat package.

  • Easily access stored items without having to unload the entire container
  • Ideal for self-storage companies
  • Can be used as temporary bridges
  • Perfect for ticket entrances and controlled walkways

Available in standard 20 or 40-foot configurations.

Side Access Containers

Need a container configured for pallet storage or extended-length items?

Side Access containers open end-to-end, much like bi-fold doors, exposing the entire length of the container.

  • Perfect for loading by forklift
  • Fantastic for pallet storage
  • Makes accessing long items simple
  • Great for bulk storage, like chemical drums.

Available for hire and purchase in 20-foot form.

Open Top Containers

Where items are too heavy and bulky to be loaded through doors, Open Top Containers offer a great solution.

With a canvas roof, top access to the container becomes simple. However, it is worth noting security is compromised.

Available for purchase only in either 20 or 40-foot configurations.
