Here are some pictures of the refurbished 10ft shipping containers we have had built in our Birmingham depot retaining the original cargo doors. Hopefully the pictures will give you an idea of what our ‘refurbished’ option is and what we can offer.
These pictures have been uploaded Feb 2020 and show our currently available stock. If you like any specific container let us know and we can pick this out for you (Subject to availability, these often sell faster than we can update the website!)
These units are perfect for home use, fantastic garden sheds or stores for garden machinery, and are far more secure than the traditional wooden shed. They can also be used to store bicycles, motorbikes, horse tack rooms, animal feed stores, office archive, workshops and retail shop extra storage.
We take used 20ft or 40ft shipping containers, cut them down into down 10ft in length, keeping the original cargo doors and construct a flat front end made from the same thickness steel as the rest of the container (although not corrugated as you can see).
We give them a complete external repaint, typically green RAL6007; Although with good notice of an order we can get your choice of basic RAL colour. All units will include a high security lock box (padlock housing) as standard and the repaint is marine grade quality paint (whites, light greys, creams and very light colours may/will be a premium as we have to double coat.)
The units shown have been repainted with RAL6007 – our most popular green which 9 our of 10 refurbs get made in (we typically have stock ready to go of green 10fts with original door but please contact us for stock levels)
Being made from used containers there will be some dinks and dents under the paintwork but, because they are one solid painted colour, they are ideal in places where they are going to be on show or if you wanted them to match company colours for example. We find these are a nice middle ground between used and new containers or where a non-standard length is essential.
The insides will be clean and tidy but you won’t always get an internal repaint (we typically only do an internal repair if it needs it!) if you need this please ask for additional cost.
We would suggest purchasing one of our Shipping Container padlocks for an additional £35.00 + VAT or our insurance rated Squire padlocks at £50.00 + VAT each. With a lock box and a padlock it gives you piece of mind that your container is highly secure.
These containers are the original cargo door option. If you are after something a snip cheaper we can offer our ‘easier to open’ newly constructed flat panel doors, complete with lockbox, less locking bars and the original front end (rather than flat front) here: 10ft Shipping Containers Birmingham (Flat Door Refurbished)
As is always sensible please get in touch with us if you have any questions, want to discuss door options or want to know what is available ‘ready to go’. As above price includes a basic repaint and a high security lock box as standard.
As with any container you buy from us, these all come with our 12 month wind & watertight warranty. Viewings welcome by arrangement. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions on any of this.
