    Whatever design you have in mind, whether you’re looking for container conversions that are small and practical or innovative and eye-catching, we can make your vision a reality!

    What can converted shipping containers be used for?

    Haulage containers are incredibly versatile and are renowned for their strength, security, and durability – which makes them easily adaptable to many specifications and well-suited for container modifications.

    Container conversions can be used for just about anything, including:

    • Offices
    • Classrooms
    • Pop-up shops and retail spaces
    • Hotel rooms
    • Studio spaces
    • Canteens and mess huts
    • Laboratories
    • Storage containers
    • Changing rooms
    • Saunas and shower rooms
    • Toilets and bathrooms
    • Plus, much, much more!

    Your possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

    A bespoke container transformation service

    Because intermodal containers are so customisable, here at Gap Containers we offer a fully bespoke conversion service to meet your specific needs.

    This specialist service includes:

    • A variety of intermodal container sizes, ranging from 6 to 40ft
    • Single and multi-story structures
    • Personalised external finishes
    • A range of interior fixtures, fittings, and features (e.g. air-conditioning, electrical wiring, plumbing, etc.)
    • A choice of different windows and doors

    We always start the conversion process by arranging a one-to-one consultation, which allows us to establish your basic specifications and budget.

    Then, based on the information collected, our engineers can then get to work – transforming and modifying the chosen haulage container to meet your needs.

    Our skilled and experienced team will bring your dream container conversions to life and give you the extra space you need to enhance your home or work life.

    How much can I choose during my container conversion?

    During your container conversion process, you might wonder how much of a say you can have.

    At Gap Containers we understand that shipping container modifications are complex and also very exciting – so aim to keep our customers in control as much as possible.

    This includes providing a bespoke design service and giving updates where we can, which gives you an idea of how work will progress and what your shipping container conversions will look like once completed.

    As part of the design process, you will choose everything, from the windows and doors to the built-in storage solutions to the use of insulation or services, such as electrification and plumbing, and much more!

    We will always ask you before we make any decisions about your modified shipping containers and can deliver them to you on-site as part of your package.

    How long does a typical container transformation take?

    Due to the bespoke nature of the service, the exact timescale varies from project to project. Your container conversion is unique, and the time needed to create it will depend on many factors, including:

    • The complexity of the project
    • The number of shipping containers involved
    • The internal and external finishes requested

    For a better idea of how long your unique project will take, it’s worth getting in touch to discuss your conversion project.

    This gives you a chance to discuss plans for your shipping container conversions – including its basic specifications – and we can then provide an estimated timescale.

    Got a specific deadline in mind? Just let us know and we will do everything we can to make sure your new conversion is delivered on time.

    How much does a shipping container conversion cost?

    Most people assume that bespoke container conversions are expensive. But, this isn’t necessarily the case.

    Each project is different and the cost of your specific shipping container conversion will depend on the size and number of containers used, their unique specification, and how long it will take to complete.

    But, generally speaking, the bigger and more complex the transformation, the more it will cost to bring it to life.

    It’s also important to note – here at Gap Containers – we can work to any budget and strive to make our container conversions as affordable as possible.

    Can a container conversion change my career?

    Many people dream of being their own boss, but working from home isn’t possible for everyone – generally because they lack the space.

    A conversion from Gap Containers could change that and make your dream career much more achievable.

    From studios to workshops, gyms to offices, whatever type of space you need to make your self-employment dreams come true, Gap Containers can make it happen.

    The best thing is, unlike permanent structures, shipping containers generally don’t require planning permission and can fit easily into your existing outdoor space, be that in a garden or driveway, removing your need to commute!

    Are shipping container conversions suitable for home bars?

    If you are keen to jump on the backyard bar bandwagon, a shipping container transformation could give you the conveniently located bar of your dreams – perfect for when you’re hosting get-togethers in the warmer months.

    While bespoke designs can be generated for your bar project, our most popular designs include:

    • Bars that you can sit inside of – which offer protection from the Great British weather and will keep any electronics safe and sound.
    • Bars with outdoor seating – these bars feature an external bar top that creates lots of space behind the bar for cocktail-making or real ale pumps.
