Used shipping containers come in 20ft & 40ft lengths as standard. To form a smaller 10ft container, these are usually cut down from a larger good quality cargo worthy shipping container with a set of double doors and/ or an end welded back into position, depending on how the unit is cut down.
Shipping containers come in 20ft and 40ft lengths as standard. To form a 10ft container for resale, a standard used, cargo worthy container that is both wind and watertight is cut down. To reform the container a set of prefabricated double end doors and/or an end panel is then re-welded into position (also known as "cut & shut").
Due to the fabrication process - unless otherwise stated, our 10ft x 8ft x 8ft 6" containers are re-sprayed externally in our traditional dark green (other colours available on request but maybe extra). We weld a lock box on the double doors for security.
These containers are popular when you just don’t quite have the space for a standard size shipping container.
Shipping containers are manufactured using high quality corrugated cor-ten steel which is designed to stand up to the harsh rigours of sea conditions. We would expect a properly maintained used refurbished shipping container to last you in excess of 20 years from date of purchase.
We manufacture these units throughout our UK depots and they are generally ready for delivery approx. 5 working days from confirmation of order.
Unless otherwise specified, we will deliver your shipping container on a HIAB assisted vehicle (we will lift the container to ground where you need it), for more info on our delivery process see our delivery info page. Please be sure to provide us with your delivery post code on the enquiry form below.
Note that a container formed from a cut-down (e.g. 10ft, 16ft, 24ft or 30ft) is likely to cost more foot-for-foot than a standard size container such as a 20ft or 40ft. As we are cutting down the container, we can actually cut this to any length you require. See our other store sizes section on our website for a bespoke quotation on this.
