Ā ContainerKingĀ® CK/Plan.. . Building site offices and stores :

Construction sites present unique challenges, but ContainerKingĀ® / rent-a-unit offers versatile solutions to address various needs on-site. Whether you require reception areas, offices, canteens, or toilet facilities, shipping containers can be adapted to meet these requirements effectively.

We provide a range of new, used, and refurbished shipping containers that can be easily customized to suit specific needs. Our containers come with fitted security doors, secure windows with anti-vandal shutters, and can be equipped with electrics and water supply as required.

In addition to traditional office and amenity spaces, ContainerKingĀ® / rent-a-unit offers containers for secure areas such as lockers and changing rooms for site workers. Our CK/Plan range showcases the diverse options available for on-site use.

For storing large machinery and equipment, high cube containers are an excellent choice. With a standard height of 9ft 6in, these containers provide ample space to safely store diggers, small tractors, and other valuable equipment, ensuring they remain secure and protected.

With ContainerKingĀ® / rent-a-unit, construction sites can maintain professionalism and functionality even amidst challenging conditions, ensuring that essential operations continue seamlessly.


ContainerKingĀ® Self-Storage & Removals

Moving house or renovating your home is a stressful business.Ā  Everyone hates packing their whole life into boxes, finding somewhere to keep it, and unpacking it all again at the other end.Ā  If you have a large-scale house renovation project, the last thing you need is any worries about damaging your belongings or having them stolen if they are not stored in a secure location.Ā  Shipping containers are ideal for short term or longer storage requirements such as these because they are extremely secure and can be easily delivered to your desired location for a reasonable price.

We supply new smart-looking containers from our range of used storage containers varying in size depending on how much stuff you have to store and how much space you have to keep it. Or we can arrange to have one of our new insulated shipping containers delivered to your premises which can sometimes be more convenient and cost less.


Sports Club Storage :

Sports clubs and grounds often approach us for assistance with storing excess sporting equipment and furniture that is cluttering up other areas.Ā  Shipping containers can be used to safely and securely store equipment for a whole range of sports, kits, discarded tables and chairs, goals, and even lawnmowers.Ā  A used shipping container is ideal for this kind of storage use, many are still in good visual condition and wonā€™t cause an eyesore on your grounds.


School | Collage & University Container Storage Units :

We have supplied storage containers to many local and national schools in the UK to securely store surplus classroom furniture, PE equipment, staging blocks, and PTA paraphernalia for the school Christmas and Summer fayres.

If you are concerned about the contents of your container being damaged by damp or mildew we can recommend anti-condensation treatments.


Doctors | Hospitals and General PPE Equipment Storage:

It may all seem so long ago now but the global coronavirus pandemic created a huge rise in demand for PPE in hospitals and healthcare settings.Ā  Supplying shipping containers to hospitals, doctors surgeries, care homes, and pharmacies etc became an important part of our business during the lockdown.Ā  Shipping containers can be dispatched and delivered at relatively short notice for storage of PPE and medicines and we always prioritise key industries where possible with the very best shipping containers which can be insulated and fully shelved out as required to optimise storage space.


Horse tack rooms :

Secure and weatherproof storage for horse tack and equipment is important, and ContainerKingĀ® shipping containers fit the bill perfectly.Ā  A storage container placed in your yard wonā€™t attract too much attention with its anonymous appearance, and even if they do, a steel container is pretty much as secure as they come.Ā  New (one trip) containers come with a lockbox (padlock cover) fitted as standard, and these are often fitted to our used and refurbished models too (depending on what the container was used for previously).Ā  A lockbox will protect the container padlock from thieves and vandals and we highly recommend them for storage containers.


Secure tool and workshop container :

Tool thefts from vans are becoming more common than ever and tradesmen cannot risk leaving their tools and livelihoods vulnerable overnight in a workā€™s van.Ā  A ContainerKingĀ® Ā workshop shipping container offers a secure and inconspicuous storage solution for power tools that can be placed on your own land keeping your precious kit highly protected and away from inquisitive eyes.

A sturdy garden shed :

Shipping Container garden sheds give perfect protection for your precious garden tools and equipment, with ample space for all of your furniture, toys, bikes, and more.Ā  Traditional wooden sheds are a popular option but they are not as secure as a sturdy shipping container, and they tend to rot and wear over time.Ā  A shipping container can withstand countless ocean crossings and still look almost new, so it could certainly hold up well as a garden shed!

There are a few options to consider when searching for a shipping container as a garden shed including a used shipping container. If you are concerned about upsetting the neighbours by placing a giant steel box into your garden you could also opt for some external timber cladding.Ā  Timber Cladding is an extremely popular customisation option, and an option we can readily assist with.

  • The ultimate guide to shipping container condensation treatment options.


If you need to store fabrics, textiles, electrical goods, foods, stock, materials, or other moisture-sensitive goods in your shipping container, ContainerkingĀ® / rent-a-unit recommends considering some of the shipping containers readily available. For more bespoke solutions, explore condensation treatments that we can supply.

Why, how, when and where does the condensation come from in Shipping Containers?

When a shipping container cools overnight, heat typically escapes through the roof. As the air inside cools and water in the air condenses, condensation may build up on any surface where heat escapes, often seen as droplets on the container’s interior roof in the mornings. On hot summer days, the sun can heat the container roof, evaporating condensation relatively quickly back into the air inside.

Several factors affect the amount of condensation:

  • Air Space: The more air in the container, the higher the potential for condensation.
  • Temperature: Overnight cooling rate, prevailing wind direction, and container exposure all play a role.
  • Humidity: Existing water content in the air.
  • Ventilation: Air circulation reduces temperature differentials and condensation.
  • Goods moisture content: Wet or moist goods contribute to condensation.
  • Usage: Frequency of door openings, loading/unloading, and weather conditions impact internal moisture levels.

While newer containers and those with more vents perform better, some condensation is typical unless preventive measures are taken. To mitigate risks, ContainerKingĀ® / rent-a-unit outline main condensation treatment types, including options available through them and DIY alternatives.
