Our Shipping Containers for Sale in the UK

Our containers are sourced from container ports, depots and other locations such as container self-storage sites throughout the UK. We also buy from large container ports abroad so that we can offer a wide variety of products to our customers. Most of our sales are standard 20ft and 40ft shipping containers, but we also sell a wide range of non-standard sizes and specialist units. So if you're looking for a standard 10ft, 20ft, 30ft or 40ft container, give us a call.

If we don't have the container you're looking for in stock when you call, we've got a network of industry contacts we can use to find one for you. We aim to offer good quality new and used containers at great value.

Our Shipping Container Pricing

The most common question we get asked is "How Much?" and unfortunately the answer is "it depends". Our sales prices are calculated based on your delivery location, your off-loading requirements, the number of containers you need, the base box cost and the cost of any modifications you require.

Choosing the right container

Although new and used container prices fluctuate depending on supply, equivalent used wind and watertight units are always cheaper than new units. So depending on your requirements choosing a good condition, structurally sound, used container could be worth considering. All our containers are wind and water tight so you can be sure when your container arrives it will be in good condition. Standard length containers are generally cheaper than smaller and larger non-standard units. Standard 20ft containers are usually cheaper than smaller 10ft units. Likewise, 40ft containers are often cheaper than smaller 30ft containers.

High cube containers are also worth considering, and increasingly popular. If you require a taller unit, high cubes offer an additional 12 inches of height compared to standard height units. If you’re looking to convert your container into an office, workshop or living accommodation, having an additional foot of headroom can make a big difference. High cube containers are typically more expensive than the equivalent standard height units. See our high cube container pages for more info.

Optional extras are also available, such as a secure padlock or a lock box fitted to the double doors, this will also contribute to the price we're able to offer.

How to Buy a Shipping Container from us

We want to make buying a new or used shipping container easy, to begin we need some information from you.

To provide an accurate price we need the following information:

  1. The type of container you would like (e.g. 20ft Standard, 40ft High Cube, 20ft DNV, 40ft Open Top etc. etc.)
  2. The condition you would like (i.e. New one-trip or Used)
  3. The quantity you require
  4. Your delivery location - preferably the full delivery location postcode (this allows us to select the best depot location and minimise delivery costs)
  5. Any specifics/extras - such as if you require a lock-box, padlock, CSC tag or a certain colour.
  6. Your contact info (it really helps if we can get in touch with you!)

For the majority of our container sales that's all we need, but if you require something a bit different, we are also happy to modify a standard container for you.

If you're looking for any modifications to the standard unit, this could include lining the container, re-painting in a certain colour, adding personnel doors or windows etc. etc. let us know what you'd like. Click here to see some example case studies of our previous container conversions.

If you provide all the above info on your initial enquiry our sales team will get back to you with an accurate price, but if we need some more specific information we'll get back to you.

We've sold thousands of containers over the years, but we know that you could be buying your first - so if you do have any questions we're happy to help.
