CONTAINER CONTAINER ARE AN INDEPENDENT SUPPLIER OF QUALITY SHIPPING CONTAINERS, SECURE STORES & CONTAINER CABINS.

All of our 20ft Used Containers are inspected when they arrive in the depot to ensure fully wind/ watertight and up to cargo worthy industry standard. All our used second hand containers are checked to ensure the double doors are fully operational and door seals fully intact to prevent any water ingress.

20ft Used Shipping Container

Industry Standard Shipping Container Sizes

20ft and 40ft (both 8ft wide and 8ft 6" high) shipping containers are considered the industry standard sizes and are usually the most cost effective options because of this. We always have extensive stocks of 20ft used containers throughout the UK ready for immediate delivery.

20 ft Shipping Container Construction

Shipping containers are manufactured using high quality cor-ten steel which is designed to stand up to the harsh rigours of sea conditions. We would expect a properly maintained used shipping container to last you in excess of 20 years from date of purchase.

All of our used shipping containers are inspected when they arrive in the depot to ensure fully wind/ watertight and up to cargo worthy industry standard.

Double doors will be fully operational and door seals fully intact to prevent any water ingress. Flooring formed from 27mm hardwood.

Our second hand shipping containers are typically 10 – 15 years old from date of manufacture.

Our shipping containers are usually picked from the depot on a “next from stack” basis, so the external colour may vary.

If you require your used shipping container for shipping overseas, then we can update the details on the CSC plate. Please advise us if this is a requirement.

Shipping Container Security

Your 20 foot shipping container can be provided with a lock box (steel box welded on the double doors to enclose a padlock thus making is less tamper proof), a high security padlock, painting and many other extras.
