These used or re-purposed 10ft shipping containers are delivered from our Southampton depot. The door type varies but, they will be cargo doors. In some cases, they may come with one or two lock boxes. In some cases, no lock box will be fitted unless ordered (at additional cost).
Our 10ft used containers are from our ex-hire fleet of produced by cutting down a 20ft or 40ft unit to produce the 10ft containers. Overall length can vary but, we aim for 10ft. You can expect a length variance of about +/- 4’’ and this is dictated solely by the position of the indents in the corrugated sheet in the side walls/roof.
Our 10ft shipping containers are great for a range of storage uses including tool storage, garden equipment storage etc. Also good for use on allotments and as builders’ stores.
Being used containers or made from used containers, they will have dents, scratches and some surface rust and may have been repaired at some point and sold strictly as ‘cosmetics not guaranteed’.
If buying a number of units, we can re-spray the exterior of the containers at an additional cost. That way, you’ll have containers that look similar. When re-spraying used containers, having a dark colour such as blue (RAL5013) or green (RAL6007) or even black (RAL9005) can help to ‘soften’ the look of dented containers. All units will be inspected and repaired prior to delivery and will be supplied with our 12-month wind & watertight guarantee.
In some cases, it may be possible to supply the 10ft units with fork-lift pockets but, these are subject to availability and if you do need them with, please specify when ordering but remember, they may not always be available.
The ex-hire units will be between 7 – 10 years of age and the cut-down units will be produced from a container that is somewhere in the region of 10 – 15 years old.
When a lock box isn’t fitted to the container, we charge an additional £50.00 + VAT for this. Should you require a padlock, we offer our standard shipping container padlock at £35.00 VAT per padlock or our insurance rated Squire padlock at £50.00 + VAT per padlock.
If you need lighting within your container but want to avoid the expense of having electrics installed or the container is going to be in a location that has no power, we suggest our battery-operated motion sensor lighting at £49.00 + VAT per light. You typically only need 1 light per 10ft shipping container. Our motion sensor lighting is re-chargeable and ideal for use in other locations such as sheds, garages and lock-ups.
