These used 20ft side opening shipping containers are extremely rare. As the major shipping lines don’t run them in their normal cargo fleets we don’t have anyone feeding large volumes of used side opening containers into the marketplace hence finding good quality ones is extremely difficult.
These specific units have been on hire for a few years and are still in nearly new condition. With some 2011 build and 2013 build units in stock as well as our brand new (AKA one trip) options.
With better regional availability than our new ranges and up to £500 off a new build side opening container price these used options should still offer many years of quality use.
These used 20ft side opening shipping containers are also very popular for static storage of oversize items that can’t fit the our the end doors on a shipping container, for quick and easy pallet access or for overnight secure delivery drop offs, these units offer fantastic flexibility and we expect they will also hold their value very well over the next 10-15 years.
As you look at the end opening doors from the outside, the side opening doors will always be to the right hand side (unless you are specifically after a left hand side opening side opener) For more info on the door operation you watch our YouTube video showing the door operation on a 20ft side opening shipping container below:
We have a superb range of other side opening containers, including 4 other types of 20ft side opening shipping container. Please feel free to check out our post on the different types of side opening shipping containers that are available if you want to check out the options.
