Product Description

Our one trip (new) 20ft shipping containers have all done one delivery 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. Typically, available in plain blue and green options.

The one trip (new) shipping containers offer the best very long term value and we recommend them for long term storage use, or for when you need a neat and smart container on your site. They should last 2-3x the life of a used container, and will look a lot smarter and hold a better resale value should you want to sell them on in some years’ time.

This video tour offers a great insight into what to expect from a one trip shipping container in terms of looks, feel and quality:

With a one trip container, you get a smart and neat storage unit in excellent condition. There may be one or two small imperfections consistent with its initial trip over from China but it will be in near perfect condition.

All one trip shipping containers come with a factory-fitted lockbox (padlock cover) for additional security.

Made from COR-TEN A grade steel, these 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 containers. Although we offer a 12-month wind and watertight guarantee with every shipping container we sell, you should really expect up to a generation of quality use from one of these containers.

3 locking bar shipping containerSee image on the left: New 20ft one trip shipping containers can come with as a 3 bar variant from time to time. The 3 bar versions (rather than the conventional 4 locking bars) are sold as an ‘easy open’ alternative with the locking bar handle on the right-hand door being much longer giving more leverage when opening. Please be specific at the point of order if this is essential. You can read more about our easy-open door option in our recent news article: ‘what is an easy-open shipping container door

As with all our ranges we can repaint, modify and convert as required and at additional cost, so if you need a container office, bar or even a world record-breaking popcorn maker then please drop us a line to discuss.

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.


Technical Information for 20ft shipping containers

Please note whilst we have tried to be as accurate as possible, some measurements (notably internal measurements) can vary slightly with the development and modernisation of manufacturing techniques over time. We recommend considering a circa 1 inch (2.5cm) tolerance. Where possible we have given a range on known variations in dims between ranges but we can’t guarantee this to be totally accurate for all ranges. If you have a specific sized problem or item to load that’s near these dims please double check with us in advance and if needs be we will get someone to measure the exact container for you.
