Shipping Containers For Sale Cardiff

Wales’ capital, Cardiff, is a vibrant city with plenty going on. Cardiff is also one of the leading ports in South Wales and the UK, with a rich history in international trade. So it comes as no surprise that the city has taken to using shipping containers in more unique ways than simply for shipping goods. 

Container Village in Cardiff offers a diverse selection of repurposed containers housing start-ups and independent businesses. Shipping containers have also been used to provide space for creatives and small businesses looking for an innovative and sustainable place to create art. The use of containers in Cardiff knows no bounds, as the city has even installed a number of units to provide temporary accommodation for those on social housing waiting lists.
