To ensure the most effective utilisation of space, no matter the project size or scope, our highly skilled design team is actively involved in each shipping container conversion we undertake. All sales units can be made to individual customer specifications, ensuring that your vision and our expertise come together in a union of excellence. The equation is simple: You dream it, we’ll make it happen!



Our highly trained technical teams use only the latest technology and manufacturing techniques in the container conversion process, ensuring a top-quality project that meets and surpasses client expectations. We employ only the best, and believe that a container conversion should be tackled with the same attention to detail as when constructing a traditional building or structure.



Our well-organised logistics team will ensure that container products arrive on time and in good condition. Our road transport fleet includes horses and trailers, crane trucks and super-link cross-border trucks to transport our containers to even the most remote locations in Sub-Saharan Africa. We also have a comprehensive workshop and mechanical team to take care of mechanical service, maintenance and repairs to our transport fleet.



With extensive product knowledge, technical training and a friendly service-oriented attitude, our sales team is here to help you! Our advice and guidance will assist you in making the best product choices for your specific needs, and we will ensure – through relationship building – that your BOXCLEVER experience is a pleasant and memorable one.
