Benefits Of Shipping Containers As Storage Solutions

There are many benefits to using shipping containers as storage solutions, mainly because of their versatility.

Containers can be used in a variety of ways, including:

  • Storage for tools during a commercial build
  • Storage of homeowner goods during an extension or project
  • Conversion into temporary homes
  • Workshops
  • Home Offices
  • We've even seen them used as swimming pool shells
  • Shelters & more 

And because shipping containers are considered temporary structures, they do not usually need planning permission (we recommend checking with your local authority before ordering).

This helps make them a firm favourite when that extra space is needed.

I’m worried about access to my site – are there any restrictions when delivering shipping containers?

When booking a shipping container delivery, it’s vital to equip our transport and lifting planners - as well as the driver - with as much information about the site as possible. There are a few things that will need to be considered. For example, if the location is on a slope, then we will need to ensure we are equipped with the required equipment needed to level the container. Also, things like both access to the site and onsite conditions need to be considered and communicated, including: 

  • on/off-road location
  • ground construction
  • cellars
  • sewers 
  • power lines, etc.

Access routes, roads and tracks to the site will need to allow for a large lorry, and the delivery zones need to be free from overhead electrical cables.

To help with these considerations, we’ve created a great lifting and delivery guide, which aims to ensure you know all you need to know.

If in doubt, contact our team to discuss any concerns or queries.
