Benefits of Shop Pods Over Shipping Containers

A custom built Shop Pod offers many benefits over a converted shipping container

Benefits of Shop Pods Over Shipping Containers

Safety Standards

All Shop Pods are built in accordance with BS (British Standard) 1090 CE Marking, plus each unit has the relevant, documented structural calculations.

Design Aesthetics

Shop Pods can be designed and built in a large variety of ways, for example with smooth edges, cladding and trims. This ensures the exterior design looks more appealing then a shipping container.

Multiple Sizes

Shop Pods can be custom built to any length, width and height. We also offer flat-sided profile, or corrugated-sided pods - designed to look like a shipping container.

Hybrid Diesel/Solar Power Units

Shop Pods’ solid roofing structures provides a means to secure solar panels – this option will significantly reduce fuel bills.

Drawbacks to Shipping Containers as Commercial Retail Units

Client examples

Head Case

Mobile Barbers

The Headcase ethos is about making customers feel welcome, by providing a relaxed, vibrant and fresh environment – while experiencing high quality hair cuts.

So it was incredibly important that the design and build of their pods consistently matched those values

Vape Huts

Vape & CBD shop

Vape Huts’ passion and vision was to own unique, eye catching and customer friendly portable retail units.

They signed up with Shop Pods because they believed we could match their ambition and deliver the UK’s first truly mobile, energy efficient, vape branded retail unit
