by Ean Parsons



A failure we were asked to do a report on a while back. It was a poor conversion to an open top and it wasn’t used correctly. It was also overloaded and the load wasn’t correctly distributed. Lucky no-one was hurt, largely because it didn’t get off the ground. Could have been avoided by going to a reputable supplier.

U Hold The Key: Storage - an economic indicator?

U Hold The Key: Storage - an economic indicator?:

www-uholdthekey:

Every February between 2000 (when we started U Hold The Key) and 2007, regular as the seasons people would start moving house and booking container storage and our occupancies would go up. Then 2008 it didn’t happen; we didn’t get the usual annual peak and we knew something was wrong. By June they…

I didn't know containers were used for that!

by Ean Parsons

We were sitting enjoying a pint of good ale in our local pub the Nags Head the other evening when the subject came around to shipping containers - like it does!  We are all runners and at our parkrun on Saturday (check out parkrun at www.parkrun.org - it’s an amazing phenomena) a couple of shipping containers had mysteriously appeared heralding some work to be done on footpaths and things.  So the conversation moved to what we do with shipping containers.  Now this is where people fall into three categories - those who don’t have the foggiest what a shipping container is (getting fewer), those that think they are only used for shipping, and those who realise they are used for lots of things.  Now it just so happened that there was also a micro-brewery ale called ‘Bespoke’ that we were sampling at the time and we mentioned that it was fitting because we use the word bespoke in advertising what we do.  How come Containers can be bespoke?  That did it; we had carte blanche to describe how we cut out sides, roofs and doors, change around floors, ass bits, weld bits and finally apply paint.  We convert them for all sorts of uses; off-shore, power regeneration, construction, sports clubs, schools, accommodation - you name it.  We were riveted and we were sure everyone else was too until we noticed that the name of the ale now being consumed was ‘Dry Up’.

Container Life In Remote Places

by Ean Parsons

Our market research took us recently to North Uist in the Outer Hebrides off the North West coast of Scotland.  Whilst some of our party

seemed more interested in sightings of Corncraikes or Golden Eagles others took our work seriously and scoured the landscape for new

and used 20ft containers, and they weren’t disappointed.  Wherever we turned we saw a container tucked behind a cottage or out in the dramatic landscape.  Whilst security is always and issue - losing a valuable piece of equipment in these parts is much more a pain than usual because of the difficulty of sourcing a replacement - protection against the elements is a serious priority and what could be better than a shipping container.  Evidence of how severe the Atlantic winds can be lies in the fact that many containers are secured to the ground by ropes and wires to prevent them blowing away in storms.  The desire to conserve the unique culture and heritage of these remote islands is supported by the EU and it is apparent grants are available for buildings and projects.  This has brought converted containers from 30ft and 40ft units as well as 20fts into play for uses such as shop extensions and art galleries.

North Uist is a harsh environment which requires practical solutions and the shipping container fits the bill very well.  Our container spotters soon became converted to peering through binoculars for a glimpse of a white tailed eagle or corn bunting but our birders were also seen noting the finer points of the somewhat less rare humble 20ft container!

ContainerContainer goes Hire

by Ean Parsons

The shipping container continues to be king of on-site storage solutions providing secure and straight forward secure storage for construction, retail, schools, sports clubs, universities and many other industries like off-shore, oil and gas, manufacturing and off course local government.  Nothing has improved on the versatility and design of the container.  Not surprisingly ContainerContainer has recently extended its operations into hires to provide the same level of customer support and flexible service that it currently provides in container sales.  ContainerContainer Hires will be supported by the same level of knowledge and experience in the container supply business that is currently given to sales customers.  For container sales ask for Stephen and for container hires ask for Louise on 0844 561 7975 .
