These one trip (new) 20ft shipping containers have all 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. Typically, available in plain blue and green options.
The one trip (new) containers offer the best very long term value and we recommend them for long term 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, will look a lot smarter and hold a better resale value should you want to sell them on in some years’ time.
All new containers come with a factory fitted lock box. We also offer a range of a high spec 20ft shipping containers which come with 10 vents for reduced condensation build up and a varnished floor.
Made from COR-TEN A grade steel, these shipping containers rust very slowly (as rust forms, the rust itself is non-porous or 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.
See Image on the left: New 20ft one trip shipping containers can come with as a 3 bar variation 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 point of order if this is essential. 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.
