Charities play a very important role in our society, working endlessly to provide help and support to those in need. One valuable resource that can significantly aid charitable organisations in their mission is shipping containers.

At RFB, we believe in supporting charitable endeavors by offering affordable and flexible solutions.

 In this blog, we’ll take a look at the many ways charities can benefit from shipping containers.

Affordable Storage

Charities often require lots of storage space for different reasons, from storing donated goods to housing equipment and supplies. Containers are a brilliant choice for affordable storage solutions. They provide a highly secure and weatherproof environment to protect items, and can be placed on-site, eliminating the need for costly storage facilities.

Flexible Hiring

Charities regularly face changing needs and budgets. Hiring a shipping container offers plenty of flexibility, allowing charities to pivot when evolving circumstances arise. We provide options to hire containers on a short or long term basis, allowing charities to access the extra space they need precisely when they need it.

Sustainability Long-Term

For charities with long-term storage needs, we offer a range of cheap container options that are still in quality condition. These containers provide a sustainable and durable option for organisations looking to invest in a reliable storage without having to overspend on this resource.

High Security

Security is essential when dealing with valuable charitable donations. Containers are designed to be secure, with sturdy construction and lockable doors that deter thiefs and vandalism from happening. Charities can have peace of mind knowing that their valuable assets are safely stored. 

Customisation Options

Containers can be easily converted to meet the specific needs of a charity. Whether it’s creating mobile offices, food storage, or pop-up shops for fundraising events, containers can be customised to suit the charity’s specific requirements. We offer conversion services that can transform standard containers into easy to use spaces.

Easily Transported

Charities often need to transport goods to different locations, whether for disaster relief efforts or community outreach programs. Containers can serve as secure transportation vessels for goods, making distribution more effective and affordable.

Sustainability Long Term

Charities have a strong commitment to environmental practices. Containers can align with these values,  because they are often reused and repurposed, thus essentially reducing the demand for brand new materials and contributing to a more sustainable future.


Shipping containers offer several advantages to charities, from affordable storage options to high security and lots of flexibility. We’re committed to helping charitable organisations in Scotland by providing access to high-quality containers and conversion services tailored to their unique requirementsBy using containers, charities can make the most of their resources and focus on their essential mission of helping those that need it the most
