These new 20ft shipping containers have all done one recent trip over from China with freight inside. They won’t have been on any domestic hire jobs or used for any other imports so they are genuine new / one trip / fresh as you can get shipping containers. Typically, 2-5 months old we take 4-5 deliveries every year into most of our UK depots. Typically, available in plain blue and green options.
The one trip (new) containers offer the best very long term value and we recommend them for long term use (for customers such as self-storage companies). They should last 2-3x the life of a used container, will look a lot smarter and hold a better resale value should you want to sell them on in some years’ time.
As with all one trip containers, these have all done one trip over from China and may have 1 or 2 small imperfections consistent with this initial trip (e.g. minor dents, tyre marks from a forklift unloading etc.), but all containers are checked on arrival so you are assured of a structurally sound unit that will be sold in a seaworthy condition, and all our containers come with our 12-month warranty against natural water or weather egress. These new one trip seaworthy containers come with a circa 5-year CSC plate. More information on what to expect from a shipping container is available from our news article ‘What can you expect from a one trip shipping container.’
All new containers come with a factory fitted lock box. We also offer a range of a high spec 20ft shipping containers which come with 10 vents for reduced condensation build up and a varnished floor.
Made from COR-TEN A grade steel, these containers rust very slowly (as rust forms, the rust itself is non-porous or won’t let water through making them extremely resilient) and if sat static on your site there’s really very little to go wrong with these units and although we offer a 12-month wind and watertight guarantee with every container we sell, you should really expect up to a generation of quality use from one of these containers.
See Image on the left: New 20ft one trip shipping containers can come with as a 3 bar variation from time to time. The 3 bar versions (rather than the conventional 4 locking bars) are sold as an ‘easy open’ alternative with the locking bar handle on the right hand door being much longer giving more leverage when opening. Please be specific at point of order if this is essential. As with all our ranges we can repaint, modify and convert as required and at additional cost, so if you need a container office, bar or even a world record breaking popcorn maker then please drop us a line to discuss.

Technical Information for 20ft shipping containers
Please note whilst we have tried to be as accurate as possible, some measurements (notably internal measurements) can vary slightly with the development and modernisation of manufacturing techniques over time. 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.
