Product Description

These are some of a special batch of 20ft shipping containers we have in our Birmingham (Cannock) depot right now.

These may not look special but they are up to half the age of a typical used shipping container which would suggest 5-7 additional lifespan over a 10-15 year old typical used container. The pictures shown are the exact containers we have in stock, there are containers in stock now in these photos as well. Viewings are welcome by arrangement.

All the containers will be professionally inspected and repaired (if required) upon arrival and will come with our standard 12-month wind & watertight guarantee if used for storage use. If your shipping container gains a natural leak or defect in its first 12 months let us know and we will come and fix it for your FOC. if we can’t we will have to replace your shipping container for you. Issues are obviously very rare but when the occasional mistake or omission does happen we wont’ leave you stranded!


All of these containers come with a high security lock box (padlock cover) worth £50 + VAT free of charge.

We would suggest purchasing one of our Masterlock Shipping Container padlocks for an additional £35.00 + VAT or the industry standard Cisa Padlocks for £45.00 + VAT each. With a lock box and a padlock it gives you piece of mind that your 20ft storage container is highly secure.

All of the containers come with a solid marine ply floor, good working doors and fully intact door seals, All units are structurally sound and will be supplied in their original livery unless, you require an exterior re-spray or any other modifications. Having been used in the shipping industry, they will have some surface rust, scratches etc. consistent with their life in the industry and, in some cases, will have been professionally repaired to shipping line standards.

If you’d prefer a 20ft shipping container with flat panel / easy open doors, ask us about our range of 20ft refurbished shipping containers.

All of our containers are structurally sound and constructed using corten (COR-TEN A grade) steel (unless specified otherwise). COR-TEN steel is a special alloy of steel that, when rusted, the rust becomes non-porous thus protecting the metal beneath. This is the same steel alloy as used to produce Birmingham’s Iron Man – created by the famous artist Antony Gormley.

We recommend considering a circa 1 inch (2.5cm) tolerance. Where possible we have given a range on known variations in dims between ranges but we can’t guarantee this to be totally accurate for all ranges. If you have a specific sized problem or item to load that’s near these dims please double check with us in advance and if needs be we will get someone to measure the exact container for you.
