LCS & The Leavesley Group
Our container and storage solutions range from bespoke office and modular
buildings to storage container hire.

LCS is an integral part of a larger business ecosystem owned by the Leavesley
Group. We specialise in selling and renting
modular buildings suitable for a broad
range of applications.

Leavesley Group has been around for nearly a full century, having been established in 1919 and expanding into new markets as circumstances changed with the times. The Group has deep roots in the English heartland and is located in the Midlands, but its operations are global and international collaboration is one of its strengths. The group has three main divisions – trading, agriculture and property, while it comprises a range of companies, trusts, joint ventures and associated business entities. Some of the activities that Leavesley Group is best known for include container services, petrol retailing, arable production, and well as pig, beef and sheep breeding. The company is active in the field of environmental protection and leads socially responsible initiatives aimed at animal welfare.

Our company was formed in the 1970’s and was originally involved in the freight shipping business, operating out of its original location between Derby and Birmingham. Today, one of our core areas of expertise is selling and hiring modular buildings. We specialise in developing buildings for a range of industries, from education and healthcare to office buildings and retail outlets.


Property division

This division consists of three companies, and is focused mostly on small- scale commercial and industrial projects, as well as plots of agricultural or wooded land. Most of the portfolio is concentrated in Midlands, but its activities are not limited to one region and extend across the globe. The Group employs its own surveyor, solicitor, planner and safety executive in order to control the entire process in house and facilitate seamless property transactions for its clients.


Trading division

With two companies under its wing, this division is dedicated to international trading in various goods and equipment. It enjoys spotless reputation, and has acted as official supplier for domestic and global institutions including UK Foreign Office, UK Border Agency, United Nations and multiple oil companies. Business operations are supported by plentiful and secure warehouse space, allowing for faster deliveries and lower shipping costs.


Agriculture division

As the oldest and largest division within Leavesley Group, agriculture sector is highly diversified and consists of 7 main and more than 30 secondary locations. Some of the most important activities of this sector include livestock breeding, farming and arable production. We dedicate a lot of effort and resources to research, developing equipment and procedures that are more humane to animals and less disruptive to the environment.

Corporate values

The entire Leavesley Group is connected by shared values that impact the course of daily operations. As a family-owned business, Leavesley operates on a high level of integrity and honesty. 

Our focus on our clients doesn’t end with the sale and we try to nourish long-term relationships that benefit everyone.

I have found Rentcontainer / LCS to be an excellent, secure and good value storage facility. Your representatives have been flexible, willing to listen to and accommodate my requests where possible, and have always responded promptly and in a friendly and open fashion. I would thoroughly recommend (and indeed already have!) LCS to anybody with long- or short-term storage needs.

I've used a few storage companies over the years with my work and I can honestly say, the storage facilities are the best i've ever used, coupled with the fact that not only are their rates good, their staff are exceptional; knowledgeable, professional and friendly!!

Very helpful people.
John Prince
Great Company, highly recommend!
Friendly and efficient on the telephone
and face to face, no problems in sorting
out a 20’ container for me and my club,
even had a choice of what colour I could
have. Delivery was arranged through
them as well. LCS have been around for
a while and I am sure will be for years to
come. It’s been 12 months
since delivery and it is still ok with no
problems encountered, I wouldn’t
hesitate in recommending them.

I used LCS to convert a shipping container
into a office for my small business. I
provided them with a few rough sketches
and the finished result was beautifully
branded and beyond my expectations.
Thank you for all your hard work.
Sarah Altman
We rented some containers short term.
LCS gave us a great price and advised
us on what sizes we needed. Glad I
spoke to them as I almost ordered
something too small!
Mr Davis
Purchased several containers for a film
we are making at Pinewood Studios.
Excellent for green/blue screen.
Fantastic communication and really
looked after me re price.
