Product Description

Flat Pack Storage Containers

Our galvansied flat pack storage containers are great storage units for a wide range of applications. The major bonus versus a shipping container is that these can be built almost anywhere, including places where we can’t deliver a ready built shipping container. (locations that aren’t accessible for our delivery trucks, eg back gardens, fields, tight church yards and more.)  These 4 x 2.1m flat pack storage containers arrive flat packed in individual panels that can be carried into position. (please note the weight of the floor panel when considering if you can move it into position and how many helpers you will need)

Main features include.

  • Easy To Build. you will need a socket set, a screwdriver, a spirit level and some helpers to build this. All parts, nuts, bolts, locks etc are included.
  • Secure. They come with 2x 5 cylinder locks as standard.  There is an additional locking bar and padlock option if you feel you need an extra level of security on these.
  • Well designed. this is a tried and tested product that has been on sale for many years with us.
  • Colour options. Available in a plain galvansied steel finish (cheapest) or with green or blue powder coating options. (£200 + VAT additional for power coated options)
  • Lots of feature built in. The design includes built in ventilation, roof gutter / drainage system,  stainless steel door hinges and come with a hoast of custom designed extra options includign levelling feet, forklift feet, folding steel ramp, insulation kits and more. (please see below for the full list of extras)
  • Guaranteed wind & watertight
  • Stocks held in UK
  • All instructions provided (and please check out our ‘how to build’ video below which shows off these flat packs in details, plus this also includes a few handy tips it building one of these yourself). Instructions are easy to follow.
  • Optional linking kit – allowing you to join any 2 equal length sides on 2 containers together to make  a larger single space.
  • Optional insulation kit for condensation  control (ideal if storing fabrics or textiles, polished furniture, foodstuffs, stock to go into retail or other potentially moisture sensitive items)
  • Advertised as a 2 person build. With these larger 4m units, we suggest you may need more then 1 helper, especially if you want to lift and move the floor panel. (Panel weights listed below)

Our flat pack storage range has recently been subject to a ‘makeover’. They now feature rounded die cast aluminium roof corners, stronger wall panels, improved double-locking system and stainless-steel hinges.

The new stainless-steel hinges not only look good, they improve security too and the door and frame are made from thicker steel. We now also offer an optional insulation pack that fits directly on to the profiled panels within the unit which don’t need any additional fixings to install them.

To assemble the unit, you will need a  socket set with a 13mm and 19mm socket, plus a screw driver. All nuts, bolts and assembly instructions provided. A couple of helpers will be needed, expect this built to take 3-4 hours if this is your first flat pack. You can likley reduce this time significantly with experience or pre planning.

If you have linked units together, you can’t lift or re-position the units. Single (un-linked) units may be lifted using a fork lift (with the forklift feel option) or top lifted by crane or similar (if using the lifting eye option)

For demounting and relocating the units in their flat-packed condition, we suggest you only use the original packaging whenever possible. Most importantly keep the transport bolts handy for re -use if this is your plan.

This 4 x 2 metre flat pack storage container is ideal for a number of light industrial or domestic applications. These units are totally man portable (minimum 2 people per panel) and are ideal for a range of hard to access locations such as gardens, courtyards and other enclosed outdoor spaces.

These units are new ex-factory, very smart, solid and secure, quick and easy to install and, for the quality, come in at an exceptional price.

Made from 0.60mm  galvanized steel panels with box profile corrugations, 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.

Flat pack storage container options and prices

Prices ar4e plus delivery. Delivery charges for the 4 x 2 metre flat pack storage containers to UK mainland addresses range from £1-300 depending on location and based on a part load (ie 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 kerb-side only. Collection available from our warehouse in Surrey if preferred.

All our standard (cheapest) deliveries are undertaken on a 2 week rotation service. Our warehouse has 1 delivery truck and sends the truck into one area of the UK each day, taking approx. 2 weeks to cover all regions. This means we wont’ setup a delivery for a specific day you choose. Instead – once we have your order and payment in, we will authorurise the warehouse to send the goods out for you. They will then confirm over the following day or two when we will next have a delivery truck in your area. Obviously this assumes we have stock in hand ready to go. in the event we are out fo stock or can’t deliver in this standard timeframe we will let you know at time or order if not before.

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

For the 2 x 2m flat pack, you can only use the 1900mm wide shelves (1 per side and 1 x 1000mm at the closed end). For the 3 x 2m flat pack, you can use the 1000mm wide shelves (2 per side and 1 at the closed end).
