UKMSA is delighted to announce a new partner to add to the growing list of organisations that are keen to provide benefits to member Sheds.

Portable Space is a leading UK supplier of shipping containers & conversions, portable cabins, toilet/shower units, modular buildings and steel storage containers, available to buy and hire. These include the Flatpack Cabin and Container Range which is light enough to be offloaded in sections from a small trailer or pick-up truck and is made up of sections that are small enough to fit through small passageways. These units can be joined (side by side or end on end) to create a larger workspace. 

Shipping containers are available in a variety of lengths – from 8ft to 40ft – and various configurations. Portable Space can also provide a variety of accessories such as grafotherm coating, padlocks, and magnetic lights for inside the containers if they will be accessed at night or flood lights for outside the containers. They can even respray containers if you have a particular colour scheme that you’d like to match.

Debenham Shed, Suffolk
Bitterne Shed Club, Hampshire

Portable Space has already supported two of our member Sheds. Debenham Shed in Suffolk had an existing shipping container workshop that needed to be moved to a new site and Portable Space did this free of charge. In Hampshire, Bitterne Shed Club needed a secure unit to house their collection of tools and they ordered a 4m x 2.1m powder-coated flatpack store. Hugh Robinson from Bitterne Shed Club commented; “We needed a secure and waterproof unit to house our tools and the wood we use to make our items. The Portable Space flatpack met all our criteria and we are thrilled with the result. Throughout, all our dealings, the team has been helpful and friendly – a very positive experience.”

Portable Space are prepared to offer UKMSA members exclusive discounts and specialist advice on all products, services, and delivery. Tracy Spurgeon, from Portable Space, said; “We are excited to support members of this vital relationship network, Portable Space is all about its people and we are proud to help in the battle against isolation and assist with social connections”

David Meli, Partnerships & Community Development Manager at UKMSA, stated; “We’re delighted to welcome Portable Space to our portfolio of partners that help support the work of our members. Finding a suitable location and facility can be a real challenge when establishing a Shed and the flexible options offered by Portable Space provide a great solution and should certainly help to grow more Sheds across the UK.”

Sheds can access more information about the Portable Space range and also how to access the exclusive member discounts by visiting the Member Benefits section of the UKMSA website here.
