New Shipping Containers
Built to our own unique specification, all our containers are built to a high quality specification, designed for secure storage:
- Built to a full marine specification – manufactured from corrosion resistant Corten steel.
- Protected with marine grade paint.
- Fitted with additional ventilation – to ensure condensation is not a problem.

- A wipe clean 28mm marine ply floor that is specially sealed and certified as being rot and vermin proof.
- Factory fitted lock box (high security lock box) with additional anti-jemmy lugs is fitted to the doors – this shrouds the padlock and protects the container from force entry.
- Available in a range of colours.
- Capable of being stacked.
Used Shipping Containers
The second-hand containers we supply are guaranteed to be structurally sound, water tight and suitable for use as secure storage containers. They can also be certified as suitable for shipping. All our used containers are inspected by our own depots prior to dispatch. We guarantee the condition of our equipment and if you are dissatisfied in any way we will either refund your money, or pay for any repairs. Using containers is also an environmentally friendly solution in that they have fulfilled their primary role of carrying cargo, and can then be used again. Cost effective recycling!
Fit for any purpose
Our versatile used shipping containers offer great value for storage, shipping, or conversion. Available nationwide, you can rely on them to be wind and watertight and feature: high tensile anti-corrosion Corten steel construction; double opening doors on one end – fitted with two locking bars on each door; marine grade plywood floor on steel cross members and ventilators for air circulation.
Most customers ask us to deliver their containers using a Hiab truck. These have an on-board crane which is used to off-load the containers and place them on the ground.
All our drivers are fully trained and carry with them the appropriate certification. All drivers are fully compliant with the ‘working at height’ regulations. Additionally, the trucks undergo regular safety checks and are fully insured. They carry a full harness system for safe unloading of containers.
Containers are normally offloaded from the side of the vehicle and the required width for offloading is 25 foot. Should you have any concerns about the suitability of your site, please call us to discuss.
To assist you in checking your site we have compiled the following guidelines.
Consider the following questions:
Can your site take a 34ft Long x 9ft wide vehicle?
(20ft units are normally delivered on this type of vehicle.)
Can your site take a 60ft Long x 9ft wide vehicle?
(40ft units are normally delivered on this type of vehicle.)
Does your site have hard access?
(Our vehicles will not normally drive over grass, fields, muddy areas or uneven ground, unless this has been pre-agreed.)
Are there any underground cables or manholes?
Are there any overhead cables?
(If you have any overhead cables, please state height.)
Are there any overhanging trees?
(If you have any overhanging trees, please state height.)
If you wish us to offload or load containers from a public highway, then you will need to take responsibility for any legal implications.
Delivery time required (site opening times)?
