‘off the shelf’ shipping container homes have arrived in the UK
Budget Shipping Containers now offers prefab shipping container homes that can be customised to meet your requirements. What’s more, they are prefabricated at the factory and delivered complete and ready to occupy. All you have to ensure is that you have planning permission, good site access for a large artic lorry on hard-standing, solid level foundations, electricity, water and sewage connection points.
Our prefab shipping container homes are designed and constructed so they can be used all year round and not just in the summer months. Thanks to the robustness of the units and the clever use of design technology, we can create a beautiful prefabricated home that’s both contemporary and durable as well as portable.
We can design a home that’s comfortable with a contemporary interior design to suit your requirements and budget.
We can install large windows to bring natural light in to your living space and install a range of practical solutions that will make your new home nice and cosy.
Ideal for basic or temporary accommodation as well as holiday lets, summerhouses, granny flats and garden houses or offices
We can also offer custom container conversions if you are looking to build a different style of shipping container home. Please contact us to discuss your plans if your looking at our own self build shipping container home or similar as the process will be very different for your own custom design.
Excellent range of high spec features
Our basic range of prefab shipping container homes come complete with interior insulation, a wooden exterior coating, laminate flooring, bathroom tiles, wood décor room doors, an aluminium sliding front door and two aluminium windows.
We can install options (at extra cost) in to your prefab home including:
Kitchen with integrated appliances
Toilet complete with soft-close lid
Electric water heater
plus as we make these units to order, we can always customise the design if you want or need anything specific adding or including in your design.

Being prefabricated, your new home will be delivered to site complete and all you need to ensure is that we access the site with a vehicle that’s about 65ft in length and that we have hard-standing over which our vehicle can run.
You need to ensure your site has good solid, level foundations on to which your home can be placed and connection points for water, sewage and electricity.
Please note that our basic model can be changed to meet your requirements.
Of course, we do recommend you obtain planning permission for your prefab prior to ordering.
Other designs of prefab homes are available, all we need is your detailed specification and we can provide a price for you.
Prices can vary a great deal with the exact spec needed, your exact location (our delivery cost from our nearest depot) as well as the price of the pound at the time of any order. We envisage the basic unit will start around £30k + VAT delivered and installed – a very reasonable price for a house you can install in approx 3 hours. Please contact us if you would be interested in a formal quote for one of these container home units.
Of course if your looking to build your own shipping container home, we can also help with the basic shipping containers as well as having plenty of help and advice on hand for anyone taking on such a project.
