Portable Space is a leading UK supplier of shipping containers, portable cabins, modular buildings & steel storage containers – available for sale and hire.

We provide a wide range of new shipping containers (one trip containers) and used shipping containers (wind and watertight) for sale throughout the UK. 

We are one of the UK’s leading portable cabin hire and  container hire companies. From our headquarters in Suffolk our hire services cover London, Home Counties and the South East. 

Shipping container conversions and modified ISO containers include containerised accommodation cabins, hazardous material containers and plant room containers.

Modular buildings can be built new from three different product ranges: Steel, Euro and Compliant depending on proposed use. Refurbished second hand modular buildings offer opportunities for organisations with restricted budgets. 

Our projects range from supplying a residential home owner with a flat pack cabin or flat pack storage container to multi-site cabin and container hire for some of the largest construction companies in the UK. However large or small your requirement our experienced team will help you select the right cabins and containers for your specific needs and carefully plan the delivery and installation in line with your schedule.

Our in-house team can modify portable cabins and shipping containers for bespoke requirements. Our specialist container conversion team of experienced carpenters and fabricators create a range of containerised accommodation and plant rooms to exact specifications ready for delivery all over the world.

We are committed to providing high quality cabins and containers backed up by a high quality, efficient sales, administration, transport and support service. We are delighted that so many of our customers recommend us.

Cabins and containers are delivered throughout the UK using a modern purpose built fleet of Euro 5 equipped HIAB crane vehicles. These self loading vehicles are also available for hire and to move your own materials and equipment. 

If you need any help in understanding our product range, need advice for a specific cabin or container requirement or have any other questions please do contact us.
