These 10ft shipping containers are made to order in our Liverpool depot. We make these up by cutting down a larger new container to size and adding additional doors and blanking off the far end. All of these new 10ft shipping containers are guaranteed wind & watertight, they are freshly repainted externally and they include a high security lock box (padlock cover) as standard.
Offering a secure, neat and tidy storage unit, at approx £400 + VAT off the price for an original 10ft direct from factory in China, these are superb value units with little to no quality difference in the build. This unit will still offer many years of quality, dry, secure storage with little to no maintenance. The steel we use in the additional panels is at least as thick as the steel in he original shipping container so you can be assured that security is never compromised.
The major difference is that these converted 10ft containers are not suitable to move cargo in. They are not rated to be lifted with heavy weights inside, but they are perfectly capable of storing large weight when used as a static storage unit. As the majority of our customers buy these for static storage use this represents a very cost effective option for customers looking for a secure dry storage unit.
These new 10ft storage units are ideal for a wide range of storage solutions. Home, garden and allotment stores, bike and motorbike storage, archive, extra stock storage space for a shop, spots clubs and community group storage as well as secure lockups for building sites and tradesmen. We can also modify and convert these 10ft Shipping Containers for a wide range of bespoke uses.
We typically make these up to order but may we occasionally have small volumes of these 10ft shipping containers in stock ready to go. When made to order they can come repainted in your choice of colour externally, and all of these containers come fitted with a high security lock box as standard.
Made from COR-TEN A grade steel, which is anti-rust alloy of steel used in the shipping industry. You should be expecting around 20 years usage with little to low maintenance. This container is not suitable for export use. If you don’t need the container for that length of time we are always open to a discussion on buying the container back when you’re finished with it!
All these new cut down shipping containers are made from one trip shipping containers. Whilst these units are repainted in our depot the odd occasional dent may be apparent from the containers initial trip into the UK from the far east. More info on this below:
Please be advised that these are sold as ‘one trip containers’ and are not brand new. All of our shipping containers are built in the factory in China or the far east and have done 1 trip into the UK since new. Some minor cosmetic wear may be evident from this initial trip. Minor dents and scrapes are reasonably common, as are tire marks inside your container where a fork lift truck or similar may have unloaded goods from inside the container.
All of our containers are checked over in our UK depots before sale, and are sold with our wind and watertight guarantees. You can read more on what wear we consider acceptable in our recent article what to expect from a one trip shipping container.
