We were looking for a low cost, secure storage option for the contents of our 8 bedroom house from Australia when we found Containers and More. From the outset, they were extremely helpful and patient as it took around 3 months from our initial enquiry due to international shipping times. The containers arrived bang on time and the operator placed them on our land with pinpoint precision, we were amazed at how trouble-free the whole exercise was. We are very pleased with both the service and the product and would definitely recommend Containers and More to others.

BRIGHT BUILD

Beautiful, custom made garden buildings, offices
and more…

If you’re looking for something a bit different, something you may not have known a shipping container or cabin could even do, then Bright Build is the place for you. We create purpose built, prefabricated, low impact modules that are transported by lorry and can be craned into your location by Hiab lorry crane . Multiple modules can be linked, sealed and optionally clad on your site.

Modules are pre-fabricated and fitted to first fix. You can even use containers to build fast house extensions.

Below you’ll find a few case studies, we’ve got lots more to share and talk about than we can put on the site, so please do get in touch. Trade enquiries are welcomed.

Purpose built garden room

Garden ‘room’ is possibly a little disingenuous, this was more like a garden house with two en-suite bedrooms, kitchen and sitting room.

Eco roofed garden office

This amazing container features a green eco-friendly sedum roof mat decorated with a rockery edge and wildflowers. The building was clad in timber to finish it off.

Our modular home prototype

Originally designed to give an idea of how we could purpose build modular homes, this building was bought and used for a house extension in Kent. 

FAQS

Your questions answered

Below are some answers to some common questions that we get asked. If you have any other questions that answered here, or on the rest of the site, then please do get in touch. 

What size containers are available?

10ft, 20ft, some 30ft and 40ft long (all 8ft wide and mostly 8ft 6in high, some 9ft 6in high) container stores are readily available for hire as secure stores. We hire 10ft and 20ft offices and mess rooms with or without furniture. Also, 20ft split office or mess: stores split 10ft and 10ft.

For sales we can cut down containers to any length, for example, a 40ft cut down to 30ft to create a 20ft store/ workshop and 10ft office. Units like these are bespoke and converted to order.

We want to buy a converted or modified container, can our design be built?

Yes it very probably can. Over 15 years we have supplied modified and converted containers for uses from workshops, power generation units, luxury offices, complex mobile electrical stores to commercial accommodation units for use in UK and for shipping and use abroad.
Please ring to discuss and/or email a rough sketch to begin conversation.

How secure are the storage containers?

Very secure. Our stores are secured with lock and lock box on double doors, personnel doors on offices and mess rooms typically have five lever lock steel secure doors and steel shuttered windows.

For container conversions, we have fitted alarm systems and external security lighting.

Do you hire site toilets and security fencing?

Yes, we hire single chemical toilets both cold water standard and hot water including mains units. We hire 2+1 toilet blocks with mains connections or with tanks. We hire security fencing and hoarding throughout UK.

Do you have new and used containers for sale?

Yes, we have new and used containers for sale throughout the UK. All our containers are wind and watertight.

How do you deliver containers and cabins?

We deliver throughout the UK on lorries with hiab cranes. We use fixed body lorries + trailers and articulated lorries. The lorries need hard standing for offloading. We prefer to avoid running on grass unless conditions are very dry.

Do we need planning permission?

We can not advise on planning permission, but as a rule, if the container is being hired it generally does not need planning for most sites.

Can containers be put on grass?

Yes, but best to support them on some timber sheets to spread the weight. The preferable surfaces are hard standing of some sort like a driveway, car park, made up yard etc.

What colours are the containers and offices?

Mostly sober and neutral colours for stores and offices. If needed we can paint them to your colour for a charge.

What about condensation?

Our customers very rarely report problems with condensation. We suggest storage containers are regularly inspected to check for any condensation. It is not wise to shut the doors and leave over the winter. Most containers have some ventilation.

Can you build new anti-vandal modular or jack-leg offices and canteens?

Yes we supply new and used jack-leg cabins and modular buildings built to order. If we have suitable second hand stock we will suggest a layout to meet your requirement and price. If new we will work with you to come up with a design to your budget.

How do we pay?

Our preference is by BACS, otherwise a cheque, in some cases by card.  Please note our payment terms on our invoices which include all our bank details.

They are always very helpful and, despite us not being a big customer, we are always treated as though we are very important to them – Mark is always available to sort out any problems (of which there are very few) and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Containers and More to anyone needing to rent a Shipping Container.

Kevin, Oxford

It has been a pleasure to deal with Containers and More over the past few years. Finding a supplier who delivers what you have asked for when you have asked for is a rarity. Would always ask you for a quotation irrespective as to where we are working in the UK. Elly is a little gem. Thanks for all your help in the past.
