    Shipping container sheds

    Keep your garden tools safe and secure with a bespoke shipping container storage shed.

    As a clever alternative to the classic wooden shed, this new option has started to gain real traction amongst homeowners thanks to its sturdiness and increased storage potential.

    So, whether you want to use the space for storage purposes or would like a unique outdoor workshop for your hobbies, we can make your container shed ideas a reality.

    Simply give us a call on 0870 240 9405 to discuss your project and get started.

    Do repurposed shipping containers work as garden storage?

    While it may sound unusual, a shipping container shed is actually a fantastic alternative to a traditional garden shed.

    This is because they:

    • Have plenty of space

    Garden storage shipping containers have a large loading capacity and are designed to hold many tonnes of cargo. As such, there is plenty of space for the average collection of garden equipment, including outdoor furniture and lawn-mowers.

    Plus, with the addition of heavy-duty racking or shelving, it’s very easy to store large items like bikes and garden furniture alongside smaller items, including children’s play apparatus, balls, BBQ essentials, and more.

    • Don’t usually require planning permission

    Unlike other buildings, placing shipping containers in your garden is usually covered under permitted development.

    While it’s always worth checking with your particular council, this can mean you don’t need planning permission to install a garden container of any kind, including flat-pack containers and used shipping containers alike.

    • Are structurally sound

    Originally manufactured for transporting goods across the seas, a used shipping container features a robust design from the outset – and can have a lifespan of over 20 years, even if exposed to the elements.

    Using Corten steel and other hardwearing materials, you can be sure each garden shed container will not deteriorate, rot, or grow mould over time – remaining secure, safe, and completely fit for purpose.

    Other benefits of a shipping container garden shed

    Container sheds are fast becoming the go-to alternative to traditional wooden sheds for several reasons, including:

    • No self-assembly is required – the shipping container garden shed is pre-fabricated on our site before they are delivered
    • They last for 25+ years
    • They’re low-maintenance and durable – wave goodbye to summers spent applying wood treatment!
    • They improve security in your home and are very difficult to vandalise or burgle
    • They offer an eco-friendly option – helping to stop the waste of used containers in the shipping industry
    • Shipping containers can be fitted with various internal and external features, such as windows and power points, and can be customised to your needs and then converted into a garden room
    • They’re cost-effective, excellent value for money, and are considered the cheaper option over their lifetime
    • Heavier items, like ride-on mowers or expensive tools, can be safely secured without concerns
