Our range of one trip / new 6ft shipping containers arrive in the UK and then get distributed to our nationwide depot locations typically in green and blue (as pictured). We commonly have stock in Southampton and London but can of course get as many of each item moved to any UK address with good notice.
They offer excellent long term value and should last 30+ years with considerate use. They come with a lock box as standard which shields the padlock to prevent removal of the lock using a pry bar or bolt cutters.
The come as part of a ‘russian doll’ set starting with 2x 10fts linked back to back (to create the footprint of a 20ft) with a 9ft inside each 10ft, an 8ft inside each 9ft, a 7ft in side each 8ft and finally a 6ft inside each 7ft. Therefore only the 10fts will come with the ‘standard’ container height of 8’6” and standard width of 8′. All of the smaller units will be slightly smaller than the last height and width ways.
These are sold as one trip shipping containers and some minor cosmetic wear should be expected from this initial trip. It is worth saying as these 9ft are usually shipped inside a 10ft container then wear on this specific range if often minimal or non existent, but you should be aware that minor wear may be evident on any of our one trip ranges. You can read more on what we consider acceptable wear in our recent guide
9ft shipping containers as with all other sizes can be used for general storage, farm storage and building site storage or they can be converted for a variety of uses such as security offices, smoking huts etc. Much like our new, one trip 8ft shipping containers they are slightly smaller in all other dimensions than ‘standard’ shipping containers. Whereas a standard ISO 20ft container will come 8′ wide and 8’6” high externally a 6ft will come 5’3” wide x 4’11” high, so almost a cube if you look at it front on.
Being produced using Corten steel, these containers are corrosion resistant and they will develop a layer of rust over time, this appearance is caused by weathering that allows the surface to form its own protective layer caused by oxidisation of the surface.
They will come with a variety of floor options; standard marine ply, bamboo or varnished. but unfortunately it can sometimes be ‘what we have available and ready to go’ rather than specifics.
Prices vary based on geographical location and of course availability. With good notice on an order we can move stocks to where you need them for cheaper delivery costs (we wouldn’t run a container via road if we could send it via rail for half the price!).
