White and Grey Shipping Containers
We regularly have customers looking for a white shipping container. White shipping containers are popular on the continent, but they are very few and far between in the UK. The issue with white containers is that dinks and dents are easier to see than on traditional darker coloured containers. Darker colours offer a certain degree of camouflage, whether you are placing the container in your field or garden or in a built up area, most customers prefer a container that wont be seen as clearly by the passing public.
However, there a number of reasons why some customers need white shipping containers. For example, a lot of blue chip building companies like white shipping containers to offer a clean image and also for easy repainting across on site (offices, shipping containers, smoking shelters etc) and a lot of rental companies serving these firms now concentrate on white shipping containers and other items in their hire fleets.
If you require a white container, just call us and we will do our best to supply you a freshly painted white container. White containers do cost more than standard colours as it often takes a few coats to mask the container’s original colour, so it will typically cost a little more than a repaint in a darker shade.
We recently completed a conversion project for a customer who wanted a white container, but as always had a tight budget, therefore we suggested getting his container sprayed an “off- white” grey colour. This didn’t need the same number of coats a white container would require, so the cost was kept at a minimum.
As you can see, the finish of this grey container is as smart as a white one and it will save you around £150 in painting costs. We were also reasonably lucky with the used shipping container we picked out for this paint job as it was relatively dent free. Whilst everything we sell is guaranteed sound and in good order, the numbers of dinks and dents on used containers will vary a fair bit from one shipping container to the next.
At Budget Shipping Containers we have the expertise to modify and convert any shipping container to meet your exact specifications. So if you’re looking for something similar to this container but with a slightly different specification (different doors, different number of windows or different window positions, electrical points in specific places, an overall smarter finish of container etc) our friendly and helpful team are on hand to provide this for you. For large scale projects or bulk purchases, it may take longer to complete, but we can assure you of the highest quality of service throughout the process.
