These 20ft shipping containers have all just done one recent trip over from China with freight inside. They won’t have been on any domestic hire jobs or used for any other imports so they are genuine new / one trip / fresh as you can get shipping containers. Typically, 2-5 months old we take 4-5 deliveries every year into most of our UK depots
These are the best spec standard 20ft shipping containers available in the UK in terms of build quality and available additional features. We typically recommend the standard ranges for static storage use, and the high spec option for customers who may end up moving the container around a fair amount.
Other ranges are available and you are always welcome along to our depot to view the containers prior to purchase. We commonly hold similar spec containers with eco-friendly and non-porous bamboo floors which are ideal for self-storage facilities or for anyone who may want to store engine parts, hazardous chemicals or anything that may leak that you don’t want seeping into a plywood floor.
As with all one trip containers, these have all done one trip over from china and may have some small imperfections consistent with this first trip (e.g. minor dents, tyre marks from a forklift unloading etc.). All containers are checked on arrival and if necessary repaired. If they had taken a big smash on this first trip we wouldn’t be selling them as a standard new container but please do not expect these to arrive in perfect condition. Strictly speaking they are not sold as ‘new’ but as ‘one trip’ containers.
All our containers come with our 12-month warranty against natural water or weather egress. These new one trip seaworthy containers come with a circa 5 year CSC plate. All containers are structurally sound and sold in a seaworthy condition, and all our containers come with our 12-month warranty against natural water or weather ingress. You can read more on this in our recent news article ‘what to expect from a one trip shipping container’.
We recommend these new build containers for very long term use. These containers will last 2-3x the life of a typical used container, they will look a lot smarter (will it be on display for your customers / visitors to site to see?) and they will hold a much better resale value should you want to sell it on in 10+ years.
Made from COR-TEN A grade steel, these 20ft shipping containers rust very slowly (as rust forms, the rust itself is non-porous and won’t let water through making them extremely resilient) and if sat static on your site there’s really very little to go wrong with these units and although we offer a 12-month wind and watertight guarantee with every container we sell, you should really expect up to a generation of quality use from one of these containers.
