Product Description

Galvansied flat pack storage containers

Our galvanised flat pack storage containers are an ideal range for anyone wanting a smaller storage unit. These 2 x 2.1m storage containers come flat packed allowing each individual panel to be carried into position and built in situ. (we also offer a 3x 2.1m and 4x 2.1m unit in this same range)

  • Easy to build, you will need a socket set (with 13 and 19mm sockets) , a screwdriver, a spirit level and some helpers. All parts, screws, bolts and locks are provided. It will take a few hours to build your first flat pack storage container.
  • Advertised as a 2 person build, but if you are carrying the floor panel (88kgs) into position we recommend up to 4 or 5 people to help you move this panel, and you may want more than 2 people moving some of the other panels if you haven’t got big burly builder types helping with this.
  • Secure, coming with 2x 5 pin cylinder locks as standard, and with the option of an additional locking bar if you feel they need an additional level of security.
  • They are well designed with good ventilation built in, a rooftop gutter / drainage system, stainless steel hinges and a load of well designed extras such as leveling feet, insulation kits, ramps and more available.
  • Colour Options: Available in plain galvanised steel, or with green or blue power coating options.
  • All instructions provided, and you can also check our ‘how to build’ video below which shows you how to build, shows off these containers in detail and offers a few handy tips when building these.
  • Stocks held in the UK
  • Guaranteed wind & watertight.
  • New ex factory product, your flat pack will not have been used by anyone else previously, and they are smart and neat storage units.
  • Experienced: We’ve been selling these units for approx. 8 years and have a reliable, trusted supply chain.
  • Optional linking kit: join any 2 equal length sides on 2 units together for a bigger storage space
  • Optional insulation kit for condensation control. Ideal if storing fabrics, textiles, foodstuffs, stock to go into a shop or any other potentially moisture sensitive goods.

To assemble the unit, you will need a 13mm and 19mm spanner and a socket set with a 13mm and 19mm socket, plus a screw driver. All nuts, bolts and assembly instructions provided.

If you have linked units together, please do not lift or re-position the units. Single (un-linked) units may be lifted using the optional fork lift or the lifting eye set.

For demounting and relocating the units in their flat-packed condition, we suggest you only use the original packaging whenever possible and keep the transport bolts handy. (when the flat pack storage container arrives it has 4 very large transport bolts holding all the panels together)

This 2 x 2 metre flat pack storage container is ideal for a number of light industrial or domestic applications. These units are totally man portable (requires 2 people) and are ideal for a range of hard to access locations such as gardens, courtyards and other enclosed outdoor spaces.

Ideal for use as tool sheds and a variety of domestic storage applications, additional small storage for smaller retail operations with spare outside space, Secure storage for event stallholders and event managers, temporary sheds, shelters, workshops and more.

Made from 0.60mm box profile galvanized steel panels, strengthened with a galvanized steel frame These units are solid and sturdy and offer an excellent level of protection for anyone wanting to secure their stuff.

The door is 1250mm wide, hinged on the right and opens outwards.

Detailed look at our Flat pack Storage containers.

Please feel free to check out this 5 minute ‘how to build’ video that shows off a lot of the features and offers some helpful tips if building yourself. This was us building the 3m x 2.1m model but the process is identical for this 2 x 2.1m option.

Flat pack Storage Container Colour options

Galvanised Steel is the standard option. Blue RAL 5010 or Green RAL 6005 finish also available at additional cost.

How heavy is each panel on our flat pack container range?

This is a common question from our customers when buying a flat pack unit. We would suggest that minimum two people carry each panel at a time to be safe. If handlign the chassis (base) we recommend more than 2 people.  Below is a chart for each of the panels:

Panel Type 2M Unit
Chassis 88 KG
Side Panel 31 KG
End Panel 31 KG
Door Panel 67 KG
Roof Panel 48 KG

Flat pack storage container options and prices

Prices exclude delivery, delivery charges for the 2 x 2 metre flat pack storage containers to UK mainland addresses range from £100-£300 depending on location and based on a part load (i.e. we try to group our deliveries together to keep the costs down for you) faster dedicated deliveries are available but will be costed individually. Delivery for accessories is free when ordered with the main product, otherwise charges will apply. Access for a large rigid vehicle will be required. Delivery is to kerb-side only. Collection available from our warehouse in Surrey if preferred.

Delivery lead times for our flat pack storage containers.

Deliveries are undertaken on a 2 week rotation service, ie we have 1 truck, and this heads into one part of the UK each day with a full load, and this truck will take approx. 2 weeks to cover all areas of the UK (eg we deliver all Cornwall and Devon deliveries day 1, South wales day 2, north Wales day 3 etc)

Once we have your order and payment in, we will authourise the warehouse to dispatch your goods ASAP. The Warehouse will then tell us when they next have a truck delivering into your area. This does mean with our standard (cheapest) delivery service that we can’t confirm an exact delivery date until 1-2 working days after we have you order and payment in.

Collections from our warehouse in Surrey are available – you will need a truck for pickups, we cannot load these into Vans or allow you to do the same. From experience there is a very high chance you will damage panels whilst loading and for safety we do now want people unpacking the flat packs in our warehouse loading area to then load panels into a van.

Shelving guide for flat pack containers

Our shelving guide is designed to assist you in selecting the right number of shelving uprights and arms to suit the weight (UDL) per shelf that you require. Please note that the weight range for this shelving is 30 – 60kg UDL per shelf – UDL is Uniform Distributed Load. The shelves are sump shelves, designed to capture any leaks. The shelf uprights are the vertical supports that hold the shelf arms in place onto which, you place your sump shelves. The shelf uprights simply snap into place so, no need to drill holes in the unit. The maximum number of shelves that can be accommodated per pair of uprights is three. For both the 1000 and 1900mm shelves, you’ll need two shelf uprights per shelf and 2 shelving arms when storing 30kg UDL per shelf. For storage of 45kg UDL, you’ll need three shelf uprights and three shelf arms per shelf. And, for storage of 60kg UDL per shelf, you’ll need four uprights and four shelf arms per shelf.

Prices

Shelf uprights – £18.00 each Shelf arms – £10.00 each Sumped shelf (1000mm) – £28.00 each Sumped shelf (1900mm) – £45.00 each So, for 1-tier of 1000mm shelving you’ll need 2 x shelving uprights, 2 x shelving arms and 1 x 100mm shelf. This will cost 2 x £18.00 + 2 x £10.00 + £28.00 = £84.00.

Shelving configuration
