Residential Uses

Home Storage 

For homeowners needing additional space to declutter their living areas or safely store household goods, tools, or sports equipment, shipping containers provide a secure, weather-resistant option.

Sheds / Workshops

Garden enthusiasts and hobbyists appreciate the solid structure of shipping containers for use as large garden sheds or workshops which provide ample space that is both rodent-proof and rust-resistant.


Many do not have a garage, or if they do their garage space may already be utilised.  Containers can become a garage or second garage storing vehicles, bikes and more.

Creative Spaces

Many are now turning to shipping containers for affordable alternatives to traditional home additions. These units can be transformed into home offices, studios, or even cosy retreats in the garden, offering privacy and comfort with a modern twist.

Moving Home

Shipping containers are becoming increasingly useful to those moving home.  You can hire a container, fill it with goods and have the container collected and moved to your new home.  Load and un-load at your own pace.

Seasonal Storage

From storing holiday decorations, summer furniture or winter gear, shipping containers offer an excellent solution for temporary or seasonal storage needs, keeping items clean, dry, and secure.

Emergency Storage

At times of emergency (flooding would be an example) it is sometimes necessary to store goods outside of your property while maintenance and repairs take place.  Containers are a rapid to deploy and secure option.

Building Works

When you are having home rennovations / alterations or extensions carried out then your excess furniture or builders tools and equipment can be stored in containers.  Secure on-site solutions can deliver efficiency and cost savings.

Custom Projects

The adaptability of shipping containers allows them to be customised for endless other uses, such as swimming pools, saunas, greenhouses, or even art installations, demonstrating their role in creative home landscaping and design

What our Users & Customers Say

Set Director, ITV

Excellent service all round! ST helped us with tricky props for our ITV drama and sourced, costed and delivered these promptly, expertly and within budget. The shipping containers for a large warehouse set were carefully moved and placed exactly as required for filming.

We've now got 6 containers on our site from ST Containers. They have been wonderful as our raw materials inbound has increased.  We are able to store products onsite, ready to use.  Our needs will grow and shrink and ST Containers have been fast, responsive and excellent value.

Mr Charnwood

We needed a container to house our possessions during a large extension on our property and the team at ST Containers helped us work out which size to go for and also allay any fears about damp / mould as the container is fully vented and feels brand new.

Worthing Rugby Club

ST Containers and Sussex Transport have been wonderful partners for us in terms of onsite storage for the club.  Our 30' container (which was adapted for us to have doors on both ends) is just perfect.  Once full we'll definitely be in contact for another.
