We have recently received several enquiries to convert shipping containers into retail stores. People are looking to use either new and used containers as pop up container shops for the consumer market. As we say, “from shipping to shopping”!

For a traditional layout, we have devised a standard specification for our 20ft (open plan) retail unit containers as follows:

Should you require we can, of course, design a bespoke shipping container including for example, special windows (e.g. porthole types), air conditioning, fitting rooms (partitioned) – the choice is endless. With standard ‘bricks and mortar’ retail space having become more and more expensive, many companies and businesses are looking to shipping containers for their retail uses. We, at Pop-Up Containers (a division of Bell Container Trading) are able to customise shipping containers for you.
