Shipping Containers For Sale Bournemouth

Famed around the world for its beaches and long stretches of coastline, Bournemouth has long been accustomed to seeing shipping containers from the shore. However, in recent times, the town has taken a shine to using shipping containers in less conventional ways. 

Shipping containers have been spotted at Bournemouth-based festivals as pop-up food outlets, along the beach for innovative start-up businesses, and as commercial bars for the summer tourist season.
