Shipping Containers, The RFB Range & Services

Our story began back in 1982 with our founders, Bobby and Janette Brown. They looked upon the business landscape to supply shipping containers in Scotland and the wider United Kingdom. And set out to do something simple, yet impactful. The fact that you are reading this today testifies to the success of their mission, and now hundreds of thousands of people have been touched by the RFB brand.

Over our 40+ years in business, we have remained true to our founding principles: provide quality products, at good prices, with unrivalled customer service. You can rest assured that your experience with us will be a pleasant and productive one.

For RFB, containers are the easy part. What we really care about is making an impact in people’s lives, whether by creating a pleasant and hassle-free journey for our clients, or doing good in our local community. There’s a beautiful simplicity in what we do, but the way we do it is what sets us apart.

Here’s an overview of what we offer:


Shipping Containers Scotland

Sales and Hire

Sales & Hire

Built for strength and longevity, and available for sale and hire, our containers are suitable for any shipping or storage requirement. We are proud to have worked with some esteemed clients over the years, such as Poundland, Network Rail and The Body Shop, to name a few. All of whom have testified to our first-class customer service. We’re the go-to firm for shipping containers across Scotland, but now we’re looking to the rest of the UK to sustain our growth.

Check out the list below and you’ll see that we can cater for every requirement.


Standard Containers

Standard Containers

These containers come in different size variations, starting at 6ft, then 8ft, 10ft, 20ft and 40ft. Standard containers are great for storing and shipping items that are suited to these measurements. You can also rest easy knowing that your items are safe within these robust containers, as they are incredibly difficult to vandalise and built for maximum security.


High Cube Containers

High Cube Containers

High cube containers are named as such because they have a high roof and look like a cube from the front and back. They serve the same purpose as regular containers, but for people who require significantly more headroom. As with all of our products, these containers are closely inspected and subject to a rigorous quality assurance test before they are sold.


Open Side Containers

Open Side Containers

Useful for storing particularly large items like furniture or machinery, open side containers are a great solution for a lot of people. Aside from being ideal for storing bulky items, open side containers can also make quick work of loading regular items, which can save time and money.


Tunnel Containers

Tunnel Containers

This product is quite versatile in its applications. Tunnel containers have been known to be used for all kinds of things, from walk-through art exhibits to more mundane industrial activities. One huge benefit of this product is that it can be loaded and unloaded from either end, meaning easier and quicker access.



Container Conversions

This is where shipping containers become genuinely exciting, and where their applications become limited only by the imagination of the customer. You may have seen some viral images and videos recently of awesome container conversions, with people turning these simple metal structures into homes, cafes, offices and more!

In Manchester, England, there are lots of shipping container offices around the University campuses, and in Amsterdam, Holland, you can find shipping container cafes. The trend is taking off, and here at RFB Containers, we love getting creative with conversions.

We have turned shipping containers into bars, workshop studios and even changing rooms. As we said, your imagination will set the limits. Just give us a brief and we will create you something mind-blowing.
