These offer a lifetime of secure storage use and we have options for special Malaysian specification units with additional vents to reduce condensation, alongside Insulation & Condensation treatment of various forms to reduce condensation build. We also offer fully customised conversions.
  • Second hand shipping containers. We offer a great line of value refurbished units in a choice of colours. As we refit these to order we can easily customise them to your specific requirements.
  • End of line containers (sold on after approx 10 years of use by shipping lines).
  • Non standard sized storage units of various sizes and grades to match specific requirements.
  • Professional grade storage containers available for hire, including standard dry units with lights & lock boxes if required plus refrigerated and freezer containers available to buy and hire.

All containers for sale can have a wide range of modifications or customisations to match your need
