Containers 4 Sale UK sponsor Bulgarian bears in need of help – The Wildwood Trust, Herne Bay

We were contacted by the Wildwood Trust, who were desperately trying to rescue a pair of Bulgarian Bears. They needed shipping containers to do this, but they could not find a container company in the UK who could help with their small budget. Of course, we could help.

The bears were kept in small, barren concrete pit in an abandoned bear breeding centre called Kormisosh, in Bulgaria. Kormisosh was used to breed bears to be shot by hunters until 1993 when bears received a protected status and bear hunting was outlawed. As a result, Kormisosh was abandoned, leaving the bears to a life of misery and neglect.

The bears received only basic care and a sub-standard diet of dried porridge. They had never been outside of their concrete pens, never seen a tree or even walked on grass.

The bears were sedated and started their 3 day trip to the Wildwood Trust, Herne Bay to enjoy a new life of luxury.

Here at Containers 4 Sale UK we volunteered to help build the enclosure for the bears, kitting it out with their own swimming pool, trees to climb and bushes to encourage them to learn how to forage for their own food and supplied the containers which the bears are spending their first few weeks in. Our containers were converted into bedrooms for the bears.

Within the first day, the bears made themselves cosy in our containers. The bigger bear ventured out of the container, had a bite to eat and went back in for a sleep. They have straw in their containers which they are completely obsessed with as they’ve never seen straw before!

These bears underwent veterinary examinations, checking to make sure they are fit and healthy. They also had intensive dental treatment. Their mental health was the biggest concern for the Wildwood Trust.

The bears were in quarantine for 4 months whilst they settled and received rehabilitation. As soon as their time in quarantine was over, they were able to roam the full 1.5 acre enclosure.

The bears are now fully rehabilitated, living a fabulous life at the Wildwood Trust, and yes, their container bedrooms are still where they sleep:

Shipping container prices are reaching an all time high as various industry factors are causing a spike in international prices.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the price of new & used container is set to dramatically increase . This is due to many factors such as the increase in steel rates, new paint regulations, which has caused our factories to shut down to adhere to latest specification etc.

There  is also a global shortage of containers due to high demand plus the dollar had against the pound. Therefore we can only advise our customers that price increases are unavoidable and beyond our control. Our quoted prices are valid for 7 days or whilst current stock last.

You can see more about the new painting regulations from an article from the Container Owners Association here:

Operating in a man’s world

Leigh-Ann Bath

A Havering-based container sales and hire company which is unusually staffed mainly by women is enjoying a boom in business.
Leigh-Ann Bath is owner and managing director of Containers4saleUK, which has its HQ at the CEME innovation centre in Rainham.

Her team operates a modern eco-friendly container sales and hire fleet business from sites throughout the UK. Leigh-Ann, who lives locally, said: “After working for many years for a global container leasing company, and witnessing many rounds of redundancies, I decided it was time to take control of my own destiny.

“This business was set up four years ago at the start of the current economic problems and we are enjoying a healthy growth year-onyear. We specialise in all types of storage solutions including
temperature-controlled refrigerated containers for hire within the food industry.

“We have a very diverse customer base ranging from local builders storing their tools to pharmaceutical companies storing vaccines, and major supermarket chains. “This is a strongly
male-dominated industry with very few women. I believe this is the only temperature controlled hire fleet operated by a prominently female workforce.”

Leigh-Ann, who is married with a teenage son, had left her former employers at the same time as Lynda Smallwood, who is the company secretary for Containers4saleUK.
She said: “She and I have worked extremely hard throughout these troubled times and thank our customers and supply network without whose support and loyalty our business wouldn’t be where it is today.”
