These one trip (new) 20ft shipping containers have all just done one recent trip over from China with freight inside. They won’t have been on any domestic hire jobs or used for any other imports so they are genuine new / one trip / fresh as you can get shipping containers. Typically, 2-5 months old we take 4-5 deliveries every year into most of our UK depots
These are the best spec standard 20ft shipping containers available in the UK in terms of build quality and available additional features. We typically recommend the standard ranges for static storage use, and the high spec option for customers who may end up moving the container around a fair amount.
Other ranges are available and you are always welcome along to our depot to view the containers prior to purchase. We commonly hold similar spec containers with eco-friendly and non-porous bamboo floors which are ideal for self-storage facilities or for anyone who may want to store engine parts, hazardous chemicals or anything that may leak that you don’t want seeping into a plywood floor.
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.
We recommend these new build containers for very long term use. These containers will last 2-3x the life of a typical used container, they will look a lot smarter (will it be on display for your customers / visitors to site to see?) and they will hold a much better resale value should you want to sell it on in 10+ years.
Made from COR-TEN A grade steel, these 20ft shipping containers rust very slowly (as rust forms, the rust itself is non-porous and won’t let water through making them extremely resilient) and if sat static on your site there’s really very little to go wrong with these units and although we offer a 12-month wind and watertight guarantee with every container we sell, you should really expect up to a generation of quality use from one of these containers.
