These refurbished 8ft shipping containers are fantastic value and ideal for storage use. The examples shown are ones we have previously supplied. These 8ft shipping containers all come wind and watertight guaranteed, freshly repainted externally to your colour choice and with a high security lock box included.
Individual specs vary slightly between depots in the UK. In London and Manchester we offer our easy open flat panel door option as standard on all 8ft shipping containers (a newly constructed door made from sheet steel with a box section frame for rigidity). Prices can also vary. While the £1000 + VAT posted is correct from our London and Manchester depot, prices from other locations will vary as economies of scale have a big impact on price.
Our flat panel doors are show with 1 locking rod on the example pictures, The sheet steel we use is as least as thick as the steel used in the sides of a shipping container (1.6-1.8mm thick) and we always add a box section frame for rigidity and we add a rain guard above the door. The original container doors are shown with 4 vertical locking rods and are much heavier to operate, but they do come with a heavy duty rubber seal on the doors
Please be aware these are made from second hand containers, so the cosmetics of the original containers can vary (prior to them being cut and repainted). You can expect some dents, creases, minor surface rust under the paintwork and repairs to the container chassis, but you are assured of a structurally sound, clean looking, wind and water tight container. The insides will be clean and tidy, and will usually be painted to match the container or in a neutral colour.
Please also note than when cutting up a larger container to make our 8ft refurbished shipping containers we do have to work within the constraints of the corrugation on the sides of the container. This means an approximate 10cm / 4 inch tolerance in the length dimension, so if you have a specific space that this container must fit into, or if you have an item of a specific size to put inside the container, then please let us know early on and we can work to meet your specific requirements.
In many circumstances a standard used 20ft containers (not repainted) will be the same or perhaps an even cheaper option, so if you have the space please ask us to quote you for a used 20ft unit as well, or of course if this all appear a little alien, please feel free to call us at any time on our Freephone number. We have experienced and helpful humans on standby and we can always discuss options and help make suggestions for a specific problem, project or space to fill.
