Conversions Galore

At Pod Tech, we are seeing an increasingly large number of enquiries for container conversions. Why? Well as we see it, there are two main reasons for this. The first being the cost, which of course is always a factor in everything we do in business or even in our private lives. Why pay through the nose for a bespoke new build when you can convert a new or used container into whatever it is you desire. The second reason is much to do with the increasingly popular idea of upcycling. In ...

Michael came to us last year with idea he had to update his existing food kiosk with a brand new bespoke built unit with various design features for us to get to work on, such as rounded corners and a signage cap. ...

Container Conversions

Here at Pod Tech, we are in the midst of the new big trend in shipping container conversions. Gone are the days of flimsy street vendor kiosks or beer tents at festivals as traders turn to more innovative ways to catch your eye and lure you in. We used to have the odd enquiry for bespoke new builds or container conversions with the majority of our workload consisting of container storage solutions, but as time goes on, we are receiving more and more enquiries for 'odd ball' containers for a my...

Shipping Container Conversions

In the modern day world of social media and internet browsing, you may have noticed a growing trend in upcycling old, and turning it into new. My own personal Pinterest page is full of such imagery. Infact, for me, Pinterest tends to offer up images of old shipping containers which have been converted into many wierd and wonderful, and not to mention, different things. Anything from street vendor stalls to DIY home builds. There seems to be a limitless number of uses for them. I have seen art st...

Shipping Container Conversions or Bespoke New Builds

At Pod Tech, we are often asked which is the best option, shipping container conversion, or bespoke new build? Normally, this usually means, what is cheaper? Sounds straightforward right? Unfortunately, that's not always the case. The first question we tend to ask is what the container will be used for. This normally dictates the end product and therefore the price. For example, if the container is to be used as a storage container and the overall finish doesn't have to meet perfection, then i...

Cheers

From time to time, we are approached with new concepts and we are more than happy to take them on. As a bespoke design and fabrication company specialising in steel container structures, we can pretty much turn our hands to anything we set our minds to. A few weeks ago we were approached by a team of entrepreneurs who have a lovely little spot of land right next to a beach somewhere in Wales. They currently have a small ice cream stand there but they want to turn this space into a fresh, mo...

Calling All Bikers

Motorbikes are becoming an increasingly popular method of transport in the UK with new bikes ranging from £1,000 to £20,000 depending on the make and model. Irrespective of the price, you may find it strange that most bikes are not fitted with additional security measures as standard. The National Crime Intelligence Service (NCIS) has recently pubilshed a survey based on the latest police figures, revealing some shocking statistics. For example, more motorbikes are stolen in the UK than are ...

Why use a steel container?

At Pod Tech, we are often asked why use a steel container instead of say, something like wood? Well there are actually a number of ways to answer this question but in simple terms, they are built to last. We can trace the beginnings of industrial use containers back to the 1830's where wooden style containers were used by railways on several continents to easily transport goods. They could then be easily transferred using cranes to other modes of transport, from rail, to horse drawn carts to ...
