All of our 20ft Used Containers for sale are inspected when they arrive in the depot to ensure fully wind/ watertight and up to cargo worthy industry standard. Used Containers have typically been used within the shipping industry on container ships to transport goods around the world - once they reach a certain age - shipping lines release them for resale in the used market - any that pass the inspection are good for many years more use.

20ft long x 8ft wide x 8ft 6" high - 20-foot shipping containers are an industry standard size, because of this, they are often the most cost effective option when looking for a used container. We always have extensive stocks of used 20-foot containers available for delivery throughout the UK (or you can collect from our depots if you prefer).

20 foot 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 container to last you in excess of 20 years from the date of purchase from us.

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

The units 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 used containers are usually picked from the depot on a 'next from stack' basis, so the external paint colour of each unit will vary.

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

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.

Your Container Delivery

Unless otherwise specified, we will deliver your container on a HIAB assisted vehicle (we will lift the box to ground where you need it). Please be sure to provide us with your delivery postcode on the enquiry form below. For more info on our delivery process click here.
