Simon Rose, who after 20 years in his Edmonton, Alberta dive store, sold out and retired in 2005. He realized that retirement is not all it’s cracked up to be and decided to start a part-time business using his past experience with scuba diving.
Shipping containers seemed to be a natural choice.
As a member of the NPSA (National Portable Storage Association), his goal is to get you the best quality new or used containers at the best price and deliver it to you as fast as possible. If there is a size you need or a modification you desire he will do his best to look after you.
Simon’s other interests include flying vintage aircraft and working with his wife Debra, at their golf course (Deer Meadows).
In a relatively short time, Simon has been in the industry, he has made some great contacts in both US and Asia suppliers and Alberta customers, which turned his part-time job into more than full time. From humble beginnings of stocking 8 to 10 containers to the current inventory of over 300 units.
Simon can supply containers from 6′ to 53′ with sizes that only Mr. Container stocks like 12′ 14′ 22′ 26′ and 30′ as well as a large inventory of multi-door storage units, secondary containment units, office units and other custom modified containers.

I would highly recommend Mr. Container if you are looking for a seacan. I recently purchased a 40ft High container with doors at both ends. Plus I had them install a man door and a 10ft roll up door. The container was delivered to my property an hour out of Edmonton, all within a week from time of inquiry. The container, as promised, looked new. It was a one trip container which I was looking for. Naomi was great to deal with and I will definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a seacan.
I’ve always believed in quality over quantity but mr. Container has both. Not only do they have superb quality of containers they have a enormous selection. You can get one for whatever you need, be it dirt bikes and toys or for household storage. You talk to owner Simon and he will treat you as family. Definitely recommend this company.
Anthem has been using Mr Container for our storage requirements for a number of years now and have never been disappointed with the service, pricing and the delivery. Simon has always given us all the information to make informed decisions regarding our container needs.
