Upminster Containers Ltd was established in 1968, originally repairing and converting containers for companies including P&O and Sea Containers; and with over 45 years in the container business, we are now one of the most experienced shipping container companies in the UK today. We pride ourselves on our customer service, encompassing attention to detail, communication, and the ability to meet and surpass customer expectations, providing the customer with their specific requirements.
We have a two acre site, which incorporates a large self-storage facility offering many different sizes of containers to accommodate any customer requirement, as well as a specialist container conversion workshop, enabling us to carry out all adaptations and conversions on our own site by our own highly skilled, and experienced engineers.
We have four main business functions:
- Self storage - we provide high quality, self-storage solutions to private, commercial and business customers on our secure premises in Upminster, Essex. We provide both new and refurbished containers, all of which are wind and water tight. The containers are painted dark green and are fitted with a lock box for added security. Customers can drive vehicles to within a few feet of the containerised storage facility, thus affording excellent accessibility.
- Container and Accommodation Unit Hire - We can provide a variety of containers to hire on your site at extremely competitive rates. We provide both new and refurbished containers, all of which are wind and water tight. They are painted dark green and are fitted with a 'lock box' for added security. We can also provide offices, office/stores, chemical stores, canteens, canteen/drying rooms, office/canteen, mess rooms, welfare units, site accommodation, changing rooms and various other specialised container conversions for short, medium and long term hire.
- Container Sales - We keep a wide variety of new and second-hand containers in various sizes for sale in stock at all times. Our container prices remain very competitive in the industry. Prices vary according to the condition of individual boxes, for example, containers may be sold in the same condition in which they are bought, or they may be wire brushed, undercoated, top coated, grafo-thermed (for anti-condensation) and provided with or without a lockbox, etc. Containers can be modified or cut down to any size required. If you wish to purchase a container not actually in stock, we can obtain most customer requirements in only a matter of days.
- Specialist Container Manufacture and Conversion - We specialise in standard and bespoke container conversions and specialised container repairs. Upminster Containers Ltd offers a unique container conversion service; handling everything in the conversion process, from the initial enquiry, throughout the entire conversion process, to delivery to your site (and collection if the container or conversion is hired from us). We have a two acre site, boardering both Essex and London, which incorporates a specialist container conversion workshop, enabling us to carry out all adaptations and conversions on our own site by our own highly skilled, and experienced engineers.
