Container Conversions & Bespoke Container Modifications

Over the last five to ten years there has been an increasing trend amongst individuals, businesses and local authorities to put containers to greater and wider uses than just simple storage. Bell Container has been involved in the container hire, sales and container conversions market since 1983 serving a wide-ranging client base.

Bell Container has its own facility to carry out container modifications and conversions on a proprietary basis, meaning, we can carry out custom container conversions to spec.

See our PROJECTS PAGE for a selection of container conversions we have undertaken.

Recent projects have included converting standard shipping containers into air compressor boxes and mobile generator units, container-based mobile art galleries, shops and pop up offices, container food and beverage serveries and container based safety training facilities. 

If you have an idea for a container conversion and are looking for an established and reliable company to carry out the modification, please get in touch, either by phone, email or complete our QUICK QUOTE enquiry form.  We look forward to your conversions.

Customised Site Offices
We also, as part of our site accommodation business, provide shipping containers which have been fully converted into on-site container offices – and these units are available for hire and sale.

In conjunction with our storage containers we can thereby provide our customers with complete solutions to satisfy all their site accommodation requirements. Bell Container has been serving the site accommodation industry since 1983 and with close to 30 years of experience has continually strived to not only meet our customers’ expectations but exceed them.
