Shipping containers as standard come in 20ft & 40ft lengths. To form a 30ft shipping container, a standard 40ft container is cut down from a good condition used, wind & watertight cargo worthy shipping container. The double doors or end panel is then re-welded into position (also known as "cut & shut"). The width and height of 30ft containers is the same as standard length units (8ft 6" high & 8ft wide).

Due to the fabrication and unless otherwise stated, our 30ft containers are re-sprayed externally in our traditional dark green (although other colours are available on request - costs of other colours will depend on the colour). We also 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 full 40ft shipping container, or need something slightly bigger than a 20ft container.

Shipping Container Construction

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. A 30ft steel container refurbished by us will also last just as long.

30ft Shipping Container Delivery

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 delivery see our delivery info page. Please be sure to provide us with your delivery postcode on the enquiry form below.

Note that a cut-down size such as a 30ft shipping container is likely to cost more foot-for-foot than a standard size container such as a 20ft or 40ft. But as we are cutting down the container, we can actually cut this to any length you require - so if you need a 32ft container instead of a 30ft we can also do this. See our "other store sizes" section on our website for a bespoke quotation on this.
