These near-new 20ft Tunnel containers are available from our London depot. There are 3 available and we don’t expect to have any more at this price, so please contact us soon if they are what you’re looking for!
What is a Tunnel Container?
Tunnel containers are of the same overall dimensions as standard shipping containers, but have full-width container doors at BOTH ends, not just one. This can make for easier loading and unloading of large or heavy items and makes for easier access when used for static storage.
Tunnel Containers for storage
Tunnel containers can be a great option for a variety of storage applications. Just as they can offer easier access to items when being used for international shipping, the extra doors can be an ideal solution for convenient loading and unloading of a storage container. They can also be very handy for rotation of bulk products. New stock can be loaded into one end, whilst product to be used is taken from the other. This reduces the risk of spoilage as you will always be using your oldest stock first.
Tunnel containers can also be used to make excellent small storage units. They can be divided using shipping container divider walls, to give you 2 secure storage units totalling 20ft (so 2 x 10ft units, or 1 x 15ft unit and 1 x 5ft unit, etc). Each will be accessible via thier own full width cargo doors with no access between, ideal for rental units. We have also supplied Tunnels in the past for conversion to garages, boiler rooms and chemical stores. We have even converted tunnel containers into a night-vision shooting range!
Near New Containers
These tunnel containers are rare near-new examples. Usually only available as one-trip options these represent a significant saving and, apart from being a couple of years older, are in very similar condition.
When built shipping containers are usually given a 5 year CSC plate (which allows it to be used for international shipping). As these containers are a couple of years older then we’ll be very happy to check the validity of CSC, just let us know that you intend to use the container for export. We can have the containers professionally inspected and the CSC renewed if nessesary.
These containers were orignally purchased as ‘one trip containers’ and have been used for static storage since, until coming into our stock. They were built in the factory in China or the far east and have done one trip only, into the UK. 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. We guarantee that our one-trip containers have never been used for static storage, which is why we are selling these at a discounted rate.
Please note that we are awaiting pictures of these exact containers, example pictures on the page show one-trip tunnel containers. We will update with pictures of the exact containers when received.
