Storage Containers

We have a large selection of storage units for hire and sale. Available in a variety of sizes and specifications, our high quality container units provide secure storage space tailored to your individual requirements. Units are adaptable storage facilities for permanent or temporary storage of your goods.


Storage containers are built to strict shipping standards, making them strong, durable and watertight, ideal for product and equipment storage. Standard sizes are 20 or 40 feet long and 8 feet wide. Conversions into smaller units are also possible, but must maintain 8 feet width. A standard storage unit is 8 feet 6 inches in height. Every storage unit is fitted with double doors at one end of the unit, however side-opening doors and/or windows are available upon request.

Security of storage containers

All of our storage units have a secure steel lockbox, providing safe storage of your property such as furniture, garden equipment and commercial goods. Storage containers are recognized by insurance companies as a highly secure method of storage.

Delivery of storage containers

Lawrence Containers use trusted transport companies to ensure safe delivery of our steel storage units. Specially equipped lorries are used for delivery of storage containers, which require relatively level and firm ground for unloading. Railway sleepers or concrete blocks can overcome unlevel ground.
Our storage containers can be delivered nationwide. P.O.A.

Alternative uses for containers

The size and shape of shipping containers makes them convertible for alternative uses. Lawrence Containers can provide customised containers converted into usable spaces such as offices, garages, workshops, canteens, chemical stores, tool sheds, security units and stables.

We are able to fit units with shelving, partitions, windows and extra doors as well as heating and lighting, according to your needs. All units are stackable and may have internal or external stairways fitted if needed.
