Product Description

As a cost effective alternative to the new/onetrip 40ft tunnel shipping containers, we can now offer refurbished 40ft tunnel shipping containers! These 40ft tunnel containers are essentially the same as a standard container, but with a set of double cargo doors at each end (as opposed to one end only). Tunnel containers are either 40fts that we have modified, (i.e. had doors added to) or two cargo door ends chopped then professionally welded together to create a fantastic secure storage unit. Like all of our refurbished containers range this product would come with a fresh repaint in your choice of colour externally.

Self storage yards do find these containers to be very cost effective as they can add a partition in the middle and turn it into 2x 20ft storage containers, with the flexibility to add additional partitions and further doors into the sides to create even 4 x 10ft storage containers.

All of our shipping containers are checked over and repaired to a very high standard prior to sale, so you are guaranteed a structurally sound, wind & watertight shipping container with good working doors, fully intact door seals and a solid floor. All shipping container floors are made from circa 28mm thick marine grade plywood.

These shipping containers are all constructed from Corten (COR-TEN A grade) steel – an anti-rust alloy of steel. When rust does form on Corten steel it is non-porous (it won’t let water through the rust) meaning the metal underneath the surface rust is protected from the elements, which in turn means that these containers will last an extremely long time.

At Budget Shipping Containers we have the capability to modify this refurbished shipping container further to fulfil your wants and needs. Take a look at our fantastic range of conversion options on our website. For large scale projects it may take longer to complete, but we can assure you of the highest quality of service throughout the process and the delivery,

The 40ft tunnel containers are made to order in our Manchester depot but can be shipped Nationwide. If you need any more help or advise you can always give us a call on freephone: 0808 1234 215 or you can  fill in our online quote form to get a price including delivery.
