These One trip (new) 40ft shipping containers offer fantastic long-term value. Typically, in the 2-5, â€˜months of ageâ€™ range, these units will have done just 1 trip over from the factory in China full of freight, but are otherwise considered brand new. All new containers come with a factory fitted, high security slimline lock box (padlock cover).
Typically, available in blue and green options, these new 40ft containers come out to you looking smart, clean and sound. For storage uses these should negate the need for planning permission â€“ as they do not have foundations we believe they should be classed as a temporary structure (but please always check with your local planning office if there is any doubt)
They have a marine plywood floor that’s approximately 28mm in thickness and multiple lashing points. These are typically aged anywhere between 6 weeks and 5 months old depending on the time of your order and the rotation of the stock that comes in from China.
This video tour will offer a good idea of what to expect in terms of looks, quality and appearance when buying a one trip shipping container. The container shown in the video is a 20ft and not a 40ft container, but other than it being half as long, its near identical to what you should expect (please note 40ft containers commonly don’t’ come with fork pockets either)
New 40ft shipping containers offer fantastic long term value. If youâ€™re looking for a 10+ year storage solution then we recommend these new containers nearly every time. They will last 2-3 times the life of a used container, they look a lot smarter â€“ and they will hold a much better resale value should you wish to dispose of the container in the future. In 10-15 years, you will be able to sellÂ your container to us for a reasonable price, our offer will depend on how well the container has been looked after, its looks and the state of the floor etc. When buying containers back, please remember that we have to incur collection costs, depot costs and the costs of any repairs that may be required.
All our 40ft shipping containers are checked over prior to sale and if any of our new containers take a big smash on their first trip to the UK they are not sold on as a normal new container (and may be offered elsewhere on the site at a discounted price â€“ although itâ€™s quite rare we get this type of stock in). All containers sold come with our 12-month wind and watertight guarantee.
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 40ft Shipping Containers
