Pentalver offers a unique combination of transport, storage and container logistics solutions to individuals, businesses and public sector organisations. We supply ISO and DNV containers globally. This includes new and used shipping containers for sale or lease, bespoke conversions designed and engineered around customer’s specifications, and refrigeration containers either standard or modified.
We have four strategically placed depots within the UK at Southampton, Cannock, Tilbury and Felixstowe, which allow us to operate all of our services to the highest standard. Other services include cargo handling and container repairs.
The Pentalver Group now provides, amongst other things, container sales and leasing, bespoke container conversions, storage and repairs, road haulage, refrigeration services and cargo handling. Our cargo management team offer a wide range of sea, air and land logistics services.
New and used ISO and DNV containers
We sell newly constructed and refurbished ISO shipping containers. The most popular lengths are 20ft and 40ft. We also supply containers which are 8ft, 10ft, 30ft and 45ft in length. We can fabricate larger containers and units up to 58ft in length if required.
Shipping containers are excellent for the storage of a wide variety of items, including plant equipment, motorcycles, documents and retail stock. Containers supplied can be used to ship cargo around the world. These containers must be fitted with a valid CSC plate (best described as an MOT for a container). Pentalver’s workshop team is certified to provide CSC plating.
Refrigerated ISO and DNV containers
Pentalver supply and modify refrigerated containers, known in the shipping industry as ‘reefers’. These temperature-controlled containers are fitted with micro-processers to regulate the temperature at a desired setting.
Reefer containers generally come in either 20ft or 40ft configurations. Pentalver operates a UK-wide, 24/7 network of refrigeration engineers. We are an authorised parts dealer for the main container machinery manufacturers, and have clip-on Genset’s available for hire. We have converted standard reefer containers into morgues, and have had butcher’s doors fitted.
Transportation of containers by road, rail, air and sea
Pentalver are a Home Office section five-approved haulier, which permits the movement of sensitive goods. We operate a fleet of more than 200 tractor units and around 300 trailers of various types, including sliding and combi-container trailers, flatbed, curtain-side and low-loader units. HIAB vehicles can also be arranged upon request.
As well as road we are also able to offer transport via air, sea and rail. We have experience in moving abnormal loads and have ADR-qualified drivers for the movement of hazardous cargo.
In addition, our Cannock facility has a VOSA-approved testing station.
Bespoke shipping container conversions
Pentalver specialises in the modification of ISO shipping containers from standard metal boxes into a variety of other applications including offices, workshops and bespoke industrial units. Containers can be fitted with an array of extras such as windows, doors, electrical fittings and air conditioning. Previous conversions have included laboratories, mobile radar control rooms, humidity controlled storage for museum exhibits and general tool and chemical stores.
In 2003 we modified two hundred insulated containers for the Ministry of Defence, equipping them with a fuel tank and refrigeration machinery capable of running from mains electricity or from an integrated diesel motor.
The Pentalver Group after 30 years of success now provides, amongst other things, container sales and leasing, bespoke container conversions, storage, container repairs, road haulage, refrigeration services and cargo handling.
