About us

About us

Triple Eight was formed in 1999 and has more than 1,600 containers on hire to storage facilities throughout the UK, making us leading experts in storage container supply.

We buy our new containers from our appointed Chinese factories and ship them loaded with cargo into the UK.

Our containers are therefore used for this one way trip only.  After emptying the cargo we clean our containers and suppy them from our range of depots around the country.

We offer containers for rental, lease or sale.

John Emms

John has had a colourful career initially in banking and accountancy and then in transport equipment management and container hire. He has worked in freight forwarding in Tehran, container leasing Hong Kong and Singapore and even run a private railway hire business across Europe. It’s nearly 20 years since he founded Triple Eight Containers and he maintains close relationships with our customers, suppliers and, of course with our Banks.

Until joining Triple Eight Containers in 2003 Evelyn had worked in the Freight Forwarding business most of her working life. Firstly, operating deep sea movements to South America and Africa. Moving on to managing pre-revolution exports to Iran, utilising all modes of transport and finally co-ordinating Pan European export and import cargo in rail wagons. She enjoys a good working relationship with customers, suppliers, container depots and hauliers.
