Sports Club Storage

July 2016 – Langton Green Community Sports Association in Kent have just taken delivery of three customised one trip shipping containers to go in with their brand new £5m sports pavilion.

Spots club storage is always a tricky one when a local area may have a good number of different sports teams, all with their own equipment, requirements and timings. Fortunately shipping containers make excellent, versatile and secure units for sport club storage of all types. With over 700 members the Langton green community has a lot of sports kit to store and a good number of separate clubs all using the pavilion facilities.

For the Langton Green Community sports Association the appearance was also especially important. These shipping containers had to be as smart as humanly possible and they needed to closely match the colours of the brand new new pavilion.

Club chairman Guy Lambert commented: ‘We needed quality storage containers which looked great next to the new building . The guys at Budget Shipping Containers did us proud. They supplied 3 top condition 1 trip shipping containers custom finished to exactly match the pavilion. Their delivery driver managed to get them into a very tight corner. All of this at a very competitive price, but just as important for us was the clear and accurate advise all the way through the process. Not knowing about shipping containers this was essential to help us understand what we were getting in advance’

Grey Conjtianer with door rubbers masked offThese 3 brand new sports club storage containers have been given a custom repaint in a specific marine grade shade of grey to best match the pavilion. These now discretely blend into the background next to the pavilion, whilst looking clean and sharp. We also masked off the rubber seals around the doors before repainting to ensure the best possible cosmetic finish (masking the door rubbers is typically a circa £50 additional option on top of the basic repainting price but it does make a container look a little smarter). We even put the leftover paint in with the containers to allow them to touch up any minor scratches on site.

Now ideally set for a generation to come – these sports club storage containers offer excellent value when priced against a storage cupboard built into the pavilion building. They are more secure than any form of wooden shed or smaller structure and we would certainly suggest they are very clean and smart.  They also offer easy, flexible and secure spaces whose use can evolve with time.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Guy Lambert and the whole of the Langton Green Community Spots Association for their business, and we expect that these one trip shipping containers will serve the community for a generation or more to come. offer the UK’s largest online range of shipping containers for sale with a nationwide network of storage and conversion yards and crane equipped delivery vehicles.
