For decades we have been exploring the flexibility and versatility of marine shipping containers. Not only are they sturdy and durable, but cold-rolled steel containers are an affordable alternative to traditional building materials, regarding erecting a secure structure – especially when there are time constraints.
Under Valley Containers, we have been leasing and selling storage, office, sleeper, freezer, and refrigeration containers across South Africa for almost 20 years as well as selling new and used containers to corporations and the public.
The growing market for customised, fully-fitted units drove us to expand our space solution offering – resulting in Afritainer.
Afritainer units are similar in size to standard shipping containers and functionality but delivered to clients as flat-packed (collapsed) modules and assembled in minutes. These units are fully-fitted and finished – allowing for an instant structure, whether as accommodation, ablution unit, office, classroom, clinic, or kiosk. They are popular on construction and industrial sites or where a mobile/temporary structure is required.
Which brings us to Habitus. Another excellent service we offer our clients thanks to many years of expertise and relationships in the industry. Under the same management umbrella and from the same material as our Afritainer units, we offer clients instant accommodation, that feels like a home. You could call it a pop-up home, providing instant gratification for anyone requiring a house within a day.
We deliver your Habitus home “folded down” and fully-fitted – a DIY house-in-a-box, without any need for major construction work.
Our mission is to provide people with the space to thrive.
