We aim to give the best service we can and we think our prices are pretty good too.

We sell both new and good condition used iso standard shipping containers and deliver throughout the UK - so if you're looking to buy a high quality container for shipping, high security / long term storage or a conversion project - get in touch!

Container Container - Custom Conversions

See our step-by-step video showing how we recently converted two 40ft high-cube units into a Multi-Rig training unit for confined spaces training. More information on this job can be found in the conversions section of our website.

We were delighted to offer our sponsorship at the Lumiere light festival in Durham 2015, which attracts over 175,000 visitors across the four days. See the video to see how we supplied and delivered 9 20ft new build units with double dours at both ends to Durham Sixth Form College.

Lumiere worked with New Zealand based company Storybox on this project. Students from Durham Sixth Form College recoreded interviews with people across the country, asking them about the objects that meant something to them. The final piece was then projected onto the installation.
