Budget Shipping Containers sets up a new HQ in Redditch

We are very happy to announce that we have just completed on our very own office property in central Redditch. This is the first time we have ever owned our own property and we look forward to setting up our HQ here for the long term.

As well as bringing our HQ to Redditch, and investing approx. £250k over the coming years to modernise and future proof the spaces available, we are also looking to recruit some more team members immediately after moving in (more info on recruitment below). We want to bring some very high spec, [hopefully] solar-powered offices to the area after our renovation works are finished.

Buying a shipping container in Worcestershire just got a whole lot easier!

With our HQ for Budget Shipping Containers in Redditch, we’re now able to offer a local, established, and reputable source of shipping containers, storage containers, and converted shipping containers locally.

Whilst we do not store the containers or do fabrication at our office site. We are on hand to offer local site visits free of charge (to help check access for delivery trucks if required), as well as being a local, friendly and reliable company to rely on for any storage containers or shipping containers. All our office activity is based in Redditch, the physical containers and any conversion work will come from our container yards on the north side of Birmingham or elsewhere across our UK-wide network of yards).

This circa 5500 sq ft building will offer us plenty of high-quality office space going forward and we look forward to setting in place renovation plans in the coming months.

Based in Beoley Road West, this site is just on the edge of the centre of town, and couldn’t be much easier to reach for staff travelling by car as well as local public transport or bike commuters. It’s location next to the Cricketer’s Arms Pub and opposite Micky’s Chippy (we hear the best chippy in town) is a very handy co-incidence!

Why choose Redditch for a Shipping Container HQ?

Redditch doesn’t have much shipping container or intermodal infrastructure in place – so why choose this midlands town for a nationwide shipping container headquarters? For us, this is an easy choice.

  • Nearly all major ports and intermodal hubs in the UK are within easy reach (typical max 3 hour drive to nearly all major port locations and container hubs or terminals, where our shipping containers are stored and repaired)
  • Compared to other towns in the region, Redditch has some of the best commuter traffic. It’s relatively easy for out-of-town commuters to get into the town at rush hour, making staff lives easier and saving on fuel use and costs.
  • Redditch has some of the best infrastructures for green communing, with the best cycle patch infrastructure in the region, helping us incentivise local staff to commute without a car.
  • A good central location allows for bus commutes, as well as being only a few minutes on a bird scooter from the train station (or about a 10 minute walk)
  • Good quality internet and services infrastructure
  • Great local services and a huge park 10 mins walk from the site.
