Shipping Containers for Sale in South Wales
Thanks to increased demand from customers in South Wales, we have now begun storing new 20ft DV shipping containers in our Cardiff depot.
Previously, we’ve delivered shipping containers in to South Wales from depots that are farther afield, making delivery costs in to places such as Newport, Port Talbot and Swansea a lot more expensive.
Now with the capability to store our shipping containers in our Cardiff depot, we can offer prompt local shipping container deliveries to customers in Monmouthshire, Caerphilly, Merthyr Tydfil, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Bridgend, Neath Port Talbot, Glamorgan and surrounding areas.
So, why did we choose to just supply new 20ft DV or standard height shipping containers from our Cardiff depot? Moving and storing quantities of different sizes of shipping containers is a risky business that can tie-up a lot of capital in stocks that rarely get ordered. So, based on previous orders from clients in Wales, we elected to just stock new 20ft standard height containers to begin with.
We are now utilising rail to get our shipping containers into the area from major ports, reducing the overall carbon footprint of the container when being transported empty for its final use.
New (One trip) Shipping Containers for sale in South Wales
New shipping containers will offer better longevity than used containers and will be more robust in areas where there is a greater exposure to the elements, especially in coastal areas such as Barry Island, Port Talbot, Swansea etc.
We chose the capital of Wales to store our containers in thanks to its excellent location and, of course, Cardiff is the chief commercial centre and home to the Welsh national rugby union team.
Currently, our Cardiff depot can only store shipping containers so, if you want any conversions such as cladded office containers, electrics, café’s bars etc, we will have to produce elsewhere for delivery to your address in Wales.
If you’re new to shipping containers in South Wales, we have clients who’ve taken them for use as storage sheds on farms and equestrian centres, in schools and at businesses who need that extra bit of secure, dry storage.
For instance, an office interior design company based in Cardiff, recently took one of our new blue 20ft shipping containers for storage use at their facility near Cardiff Docks.
The new standard height 20ft shipping containers that we currently store in our Cardiff depot are primarily supplied with a blue painted exterior as this has been the preferred choice to date. We can, of course, supply shipping containers with a green exterior finish in to south Wales but, haulage costs may be slightly higher than shipping from our Cardiff depot. Please do check with us though as we do occasionally have stocks of green 20ft standard height shipping containers in our Cardiff depot.
Likewise, any special sizes and refurbished shipping containers will, for now, be transported in to Wales from other depots.
Our 10ft refurbished shipping containers only really come from three of our 17-depots at this moment so, ordering just one of these units for delivery in to Wales will be quite expensive on a per unit basis.
10ft and 20ft side opening Shipping Containers in Cardiff and Barry
One of our clients, Cardiff and Vale College, could only take 10ft shipping containers for storage use at their campus in Barry and so, we combined delivery of this order with another 20ft shipping container they required at their Cardiff campus enabling us to keep the cost of haulage as low as possible despite the distance from our depot.
The University of South Wales had 15 20ft side opening containers from us some of which, were being converted in to a plant room.
40ft shipping containers in Gwent
Working with a pharmaceutical company in Gwent, we assisted them create an external storage and maintenance area using refurbished 40ft containers. The containers were laid end to end to create a large ‘tunnel’ over which a shipping container canopy was being installed to create this large workshop area beneath. Very much like our Euro Tunnel project in Folkestone. The containers themselves were then used for storage of machinery and parts that were used in production areas as and when required.
Whichever type of shipping container you require, please note that every container we sell comes with our 12-month wind and watertight guarantee.
