We were asked by Home Improvement Brand Wickes to supply a number of modified containers to act as Click and Collect facilities at their locations around the UK.
Mr. Box supplied new 40ft ISO shipping containers to ensure there was plenty of storage space inside. We then modified the containers as follows:
- The original container doors and end wall were removed and replaced with new double personnel doors at each end of the container (this facilitates an internal 1 wat system within the container)
- Certified electrics were fitted to include fluorescent lighting and power sockets throughout the container, and an external power input point.
- The containers were re-painted in blue to matching the Wickes brand colour palette.
These containers form the first part of a bigger rollout of containerised retail and storage solutions to support the expanding Click & Collect market, offering a cost-effective solution for a busy and growing retail environment. The first units are already proving a welcome addition for the staff in-store, and allowing customers to pick up their orders swiftly and freeing up all-important floor space in-store.
