Container Accessories

Extras or Additions available with your container.

Lock Boxes

A lock box or cowl lock housing is fitted to the door of the container over the area you would use a padlock. This encloses the padlock so it is only accessible from the underside of the box and helps prevent someone using a crowbar or similar to break the  padlock and break in. These often come included on new build and refurbished containers, otherwise they are £50 + VAT if fitted prior to delivery or for £35 + VAT we can post one to you to weld on and paint  yourself. Please view our Lock box page for more info.


High security padlocks are dispatched directly to you via courier. We typically offer the very best quality option we can find – the 75mm Hardened steel CISA branded padlocks that come with a range of pinning / keying options. They are anti-pick, anti-drill and anti-saw – so they provide excellent protection against attack and the elements. Please view our Padlock page for full range of info on these.

Bulldog Container Locks

These are specially made shipping container locks. Made from case-hardened steel and weighing 3.5 kg, these lock are transferable from one container to another. Great if you have regular numbers of import or export containers held at your premises, or if you move other peoples containers with goods in them. We generally recommend a single lock box and padlock combination if you are purchasing a single container for storage at your site as the bulldog lock will be slightly more expensive for a similar standard of security but very handy if you have a rotation of containers in your care to secure.

Shipping Container Bolt Seals

ADAM_BOLTSEALBolt Seals are used to seal your container when shipping cargo. You seal it once you have packed your container and it will lock closed. Record the unique seal number and you can check it on arrival to ensure your container hasn’t been opened on its trip. (If customs look inside your container they will typically break the seal and replace it with a customs signified seal). You will need bolt cutters or similar to break the seal to get in your container. Our bolt seals are ISO 17712.2 and C-TPAT compliant meaning it will comply with any local legal requirements for sealing your containers including trips to or via the USA. See our Shipping Container Bolt Seals section for more information.
