5 Reasons to Pick a Flat Pack

Wednesday 18 September 2019, Filed in: General

Not sure whether a flat pack container or a standard container is best for your needs? Then read the top five advantages a flat pack can offer you. From size to flexibility, you'll find out that good things can come in small packages!



  1. Size and strength

    Our smallest size is a neat little 2.1m x 2.1m – that’s around 6ft10, which is handy if you are short on space to keep a storage unit, or you only have a small load. Other sizes available are 3.1m and 4.1m, which are still on the smaller side of containerised storage units, but offer a little more space. Many people find these sizes are perfect for back gardens, allotments, and school premises.

    Concerned about security? Our flat pack containers are the No 1 product in the UK for security and durability. Made from steel interlocking panels they have stainless steel hinges, rounded roof corners, two deadlocks as standard, a locking bar and padlock.

  2. Man portable and easy assembly

    Flat pack products have a reputation for striking fear and dread into the hearts of even the keenest DIY-er. But if you take a closer look at the flat pack storage container, you’ll see these are actually very quick and simple to assemble. The smallest size can be assembled in under and hour by just two people and a socket and screwdriver set – no fiddly pieces or an endless box-full of different parts involved!

    Each component is FULLY man-portable, which means that wherever you wish to locate your flat pack container, you can carry the pieces there by hand is necessary. No cranes or heavy lifting equipment are needed once the unit has been delivered!

  3. Low cost delivery

    Unlike pre-assembled shipping containers which require hiab delivery, and clear access to offload, self-assembly containers are transported in bulk, on a flat-bed truck, keeping costs down and making unloading quick and simple at your end. If you are looking to keep costs down when choosing a container, of have restricted access at your deliver site, these are pointers to bear in mind when deciding what type of container to get.

  4. Flexibility

    Changed your mind about where you want to site your storage container? No problem! A flat pack container is as easy to put down again as it is to put up. Simply pack it down, and move it, again, without the need for a crane or specialist vehicle. It can even be stored away neatly and conveniently when not in use for any length of time, and reassembled again the next time its services are required.

  5. Not just for storage!

    See our flat pack chemical containers, and flat pack offices for the same advantages for different purposes. Small, compact, man-portable and easy to assemble – that back garden office is possible!

    Special features: chemical stores have Durbar flooring instead of timber, which is anti-slip and proofs against spillages and leaks. Cabin offices have a choice of wall panels that can be glazed, in style of patio doors, and are insulated.
