About Us

Drawing on two decades of experience, we also offer expert conversion of containers, customising them for a wide range of uses. Our mission is to create and use space in innovative ways, and to enable people to achieve their business objectives through the spaces we provide.

How we got started

Our company was founded in Cape Town in 1997 by the holding company Triton International, trading under the name Triton Container Trading Africa.

Four years later, the company became Royal Wolf Trading Africa, under the worldwide domestic container group, Royal Wolf – a full subsidiary of Triton International.

In 2004, Royal Wolf Trading Africa was sold to South African shareholders and the company name was changed to Big Box Containers.

Big Box Containers today

Today Big Box Containers is one of the biggest privately owned container rental, sales and conversion companies in Africa. It has branches in Cape TownJohannesburg and Pretoria.

In 2014, Big Box Containers joined the InteSpace group, which focuses on offering flexible space solutions across a number of industries. This partnership has been very successful.

In 2017, Big Box expanded its offerings in Gauteng through the acquisition of Container Agents Pretoria (Pty) Ltd, a Pretoria-based container company.

In 2023, Big Box Containers and Container Conversions (Pty) Ltd joined forces enabling us to offer an even more comprehensive range of services and products whilst expanding our geographical range to Durban. Our product range now includes dry containers, refrigeration containers, park homes, dome shelters, flatpacks as well as transport and export solutions. We are also happy to announce that Container Conversions has level 1 BEE status and this has significant advantages for Big Box Containers.

We love turning requirements and innovative ideas into space and storage solutions, and we continue breaking new ground in container customisation.

What’s important to Big Box Containers

Although Big Box Containers has expanded rapidly, it has succeeded in maintaining loyal staff, with low turnover and a family culture based on mutual respect. This is important to us. Several employees have been with the company since it was first founded.

Our staff come from all walks of life, from richer communities to those that are in need on several fronts. As a South African company, we believe it’s imperative to get involved – and we’re privileged that our containers have the potential to help change people’s lives.

We have supplied containers for a number of community and charitable initiatives, from large-scale projects like the Orange Babies’ children’s home or the Skateistan skateboard park in Johannesburg to more humble but equally important projects for local schools and crèches.

We also continue to sponsor and actively participate in a range of cycling, running and swimming events, from the AfricanX TrailRun to the Night Trail Series and the popular Wines2Whales MTB events.
