Shipping Containers for Storage
One of the most common uses for shipping containers is for on site storage. We can supply:
- New shipping containers. Also known as ‘one trip’ containers these have been used just once since manufacture to ship goods over to the UK from China. These offer a lifetime of secure storage use. Other non-standard specifications are also available with additional vents to reduce condensation, as well as other insulation and condensation treatments of various forms.
- Used shipping containers. These second-hand shipping containers have typically been used for 10-15 years in the shipping industry. For storage use they are still very solid and can offer many good years of secure dry storage and can be customised to meet your requirements e.g. Cladding, Windows, Doors.
- End of line shipping containers. These are sold on after approx 10-15 years of use by shipping lines.
- Non standard storage containers of various sizes and grades to match specific requirements.
- Professional grade storage containers including standard dry units with lights & lock boxes if required plus refrigerated and freezer containers available to buy and hire.
All our budget shipping containers for sale can be modified or customised to order.
