Bell Container Trading Limited has been established since 1983 serving the UK container markets for over 30 years. We provide shipping containers for hire and sale (wide range of sizes available). We also provide site accommodation for hire and sale, portable offices, canteens, welfare units & toilets. Container conversions are a big part of our business providing bespoke container modifications to your specifications and much more.

Secure Storage Shipping Containers

Our storage containers are available in all standard sizes (from 10ft, 20ft and 40ft units) and we stock both new and second hand containers. Our corporate colours are blue and green, however, we are able to paint shipping containers in any colour should you require.

Site Accommodation & Site Office Containers

We provide the full range of site accommodation, including portable office containers, canteens, mess-rooms, welfare containers and mobile toilet units (mains connected) as well as portable chemical toilets. All our site accommodation containers are available for both hire and sale. Our site offices, for example, can be partitioned into an office and canteen unit, with sink and hot water facilities or a combined office and storage container. All our office containers and site accommodation units include full light, heat and power. We also offer, for when space is limited, foldable storage containers and foldable office containers. Please let us know if you have any specific container modification requirements.

Shipping Container Conversions

We are also able to carry out bespoke container conversions to your exact specifications. As part of the container conversions business, we can modify containers into, for example, offices, combined storage and office containers, storage and welfare containers, container based canteens, mobile kitchens, retail units, container bars, art galleries and container shops. Recently, we have noticed an increase in container modifications for pop up venues and we are expanding into these new popup container markets. If you have an idea for a container conversions concept, or wish to use shipping containers for a popup or marketing project or a brand or product launch, do let us know - all enquiries welcome.

By Sandy , MS - Systems

Thank you for all your help and we look forward to dealing with you again in the future and I have got to say, your guy who delivered it here on 25th went over and above the call of duty fitting it into our car park. He [the driver] was patient and obliging and no point in thinking well of him and the service and not passing it on to you at HQ!

The container and office unit were delivered to us this morning and just wanted to say many thanks to the Bell team for all your hard work in getting us the containers within such short notice!

By Chris , JSL (London)

Just a short message to say it has been a real pleasure dealing with Bell. The drivers delivered all the containers on-time and positioned them exactly where we had indicated. The storage units are already full and we have started working from the site-office. We will highly recommend Bell to anyone looking for containers and will, of course, use you again should we need more units!
