Shipping Container Supplier in London

Sigma Container Corporation (SCC) has helped the city of London transition into using clean, one-trip ISO shipping containers as the preferred excess storage solution. Our units are clean and feature many advantages as opposed to conventional storage solutions, including:

  • Portability – If you are planning a move, your container (and possessions) can easily move with you within Ontario.
  • Modern aesthetics –  Shipping containers have a clean and simple look to them.
  • Customizable –  Perfect for modifications and customizations to suit your needs. The limit is your own imagination.
  • Secure – Highly secure to keep your belongings safe by adding a lockbox and lock block.
  • Durability – Made of corten steel composition, shipping containers are strong and the structural integrity is maintained for years to come.
  • Temperature Control – Even if not a refrigerator unit, with proper insulation and venting, you can easily monitor and maintain a steady temperature.


With the growing trend of purchasing shipping containers in London and modifications to customize them, it has proved to be a cost-effective investment. In the generation of sustainability and reducing footprints, containers have made out to be a great alternative option for residential, commercial, or even industrial use

When considering purchasing a shipping container, first think about what the main purpose will be and then try to work out the size and condition of the container needed. Residents may use the shipping container as extra outdoor storage, tiny homes, workshops, home gyms, and much more. Businesses and various industries usually utilize containers as office spaces, inventory storage, or waste collection. 

Once you have considered the intended purpose of the container, the next step is to choose the size and condition. SCC offers 20’ and 40’ standard (8.6 ft) or high cube (9.6 ft) shipping containers  in either used (cargo worthy) or new (one-trip) condition available to be delivered out in London. 

Used cargo worthy containers are more affordable than one-trip containers but they have also been used for possibly 10, 15, or 20+ years. Though they may not look as shiny as new containers, cargo worthy containers are still a grade above wind and water tight containers as they also guarantee solid floors, doors and door seals.  

On the other hand, one-trip containers have only been used to transport cargo one-way to Canada from overseas. They may be more of an initial investment but it will also be the container that will last decades longer with proper maintenance.


SCC is ready to offer flexible month-to-month shipping container rentals on all our available sizes to London. Securely storing your valuable goods for both commercial and residential use from harsh elements and theft. 

Made of corten steel, shipping containers are not only durable, but they are better at resisting corrosion from harsh elements compared to other steel compositions. Having the container be weather resistant and leak-proof, by adding a container lock box or heavy-duty lock block will keep your possessions secure from even an experienced thief. 

Renting a shipping container in London might be a suitable option compared to other storage solutions such as warehouses or other storage facilities with a more expensive rental per unit. Not only are containers versatile mobile storage units, they are delivered to your site, easy to access, and hassle-free. 


At Sigma Container, our 40+ years of experience has led us to consistently provide fast and reliable services all across Ontario. We strive to deliver your units in a secure manner from start to finish using our tilt-and-load trucks

Our certified drivers provide reliable delivery with accurate maneuvering; however, even with excellent driving, there are limitations to look out for when picking up or delivering a shipping container. The truck needs approx. 13 – 15 ft of width and the truck itself is ~ 12.5 ft in height. A 20 ft container will need approx. 60 ft of clear linear space to drop off to the ground, while a 40 ft container will need approximately 120 ft. The highest point of the truck would then reach 15-18 ft in height.

Another tip to remember is that the trucks are very heavy! So it would be wise to note the ground and weather conditions prior to and on the day of delivery.
