Background into this area
When people are looking into a shipping container conversion a lot of the conversion need electricity whether it’s for an office - for computers or phones and pop up restaurants that need power for the cooking appliances we have done it all.
We have worked with a lot of clients that we have fabricated countless offices and workshops and bespoke electrical conversions of clients so we know what we are doing with fitting electrics in our shipping containers.
With Flat-pack shipping containers they come with built in wiring that as you are constructing the shipping container and slide the panels into place all you need to do is to attach the wires together and attach to a power supply like a generator and have power throughout the Flat-pack shipping container.
It’s not just our shipping container conversions that can have electricity put in. If you are just looking for a standard shipping container that needs lighting or a power supply’s, we can do small conversions to include these. Having electricity can help out in storage as well some internal lighting for late night searching through to find a favorite toy or your best china for a family party a little lighting always helps.
Using an external isolator and an RCD consumer until we can fit an electrical installation as specified which can include lights, sockets, heaters, fans or any other fitting required. The work is carried out by qualified electricians.

This is because a lot of people who get conversions from us can work round the clock and the need for lighting is a necessity to be able to work from a shipping container. Our internal light fittings can be strip lights or bulkhead lights for more robust applications.
