Shipping Containers for Garden Storage

Shipping containers for garden storage make an ideal replacement for a shed or more permanent structure. More and more we’re finding garden centres, allotment associations and keen gardeners after a secure place to store their garden equipment or garden machinery. So when Joseph Rochford Gardens Ltd approached us needing garden storage containers for their 25 acre site in Hertfordshire we knew exactly how to help.

As they needed containers to fit neatly into a specific area and sized for tight access, we recommended our 30ft refurbished shipping containers, repainted dark green and with easy open flat panel doors.

Our refurbished shipping containers offer an excellent halfway options between a basic used and a one trip (brand new) container, making our refurbished range ideal shipping containers for garden storage – both for domestic and commercial use as well for allotment groups.

When made to order they will often take a couple of weeks to book in and make, but this allows us to repaint the containers in any basic colour of your choice. All our refurbished containers come with a high security lock box (padlock cover) and when coupled with one of our insurance rated padlocks you should be able to add the contents of the shipping container to any insurance policy covering the site.

As these refurbished shipping containers for garden storage are made to order, we can also offer cost effective custom sizes of container, allowing you to maximize your storage in a specific space or gap.

Of course our range of basic used and one trip (new) shipping containers still offer different benefits and drawbacks. All of our used containers are slightly cheaper, they are built as well and are still guaranteed to be in good order and wind & watertight. They will however come in their original liveries and they will have surface rust. They are the cheaper buy less pretty option.

One trip or new shipping containers are still very popular for garden storage use. They will be more expensive, but they will have fewer dents. They will be a lot younger and they will last many decades making them a great option for someone wanting a very smart and semi-permanent shipping containers for garden storage. They also offer best value over the very long term and we would recommend considering a one trip container if you expect to want well over 10 years of solid, low maintenance use.

With the largest range of plants in the UK (and only available to trade unfortunately!), when it comes to plants and gardening, Rochford’s certainly know their stuff, and if anyone has a lot of gardening equipment of all types and sizes to look after its these guys. Fortunately there’s ample space in these garden storage containers for everything from buckets and brooms through to specialised gardening kit. The goods can be kept out of the way in a secure and tidy setup. The newly constructed flat panel doors offer a great level of security and help keep the yard nice and smart for visitors and customers.

The containers pictured above have now been in place approximately a year and they look set to last a long time yet.
