Container Sales 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 units from larger container ports abroad so that we can offer a wide variety of high quality products to our customers.

All our new container stock is bought directly from manufacturers in the far-east as no new containers are manufactured in the UK. We hold a stock of these new units in the UK ready for immediate delivery. Our most popular products are standard 20ft and 40ft boxes, but we also sell a wide range of non-standard sizes and specialist units. So if you're looking to buy a standard 10ft, 20ft, 30ft or 40ft container, give us a call.

If you're looking for a specialist container, such as a 20ft half-height container or for a container to be converted into a site office we can help with that too - take a look at our conversions page for some examples of our conversion work.

Shipping containers are great for secure storage on building sites, allotments, farm land and in residentail settings. 

If we don't have what you want in stock when you call, we've got a network of industry contacts we can use to find one for you. We'll utilise our network to find you the best price we can, then get back to you once we know the best price we can offer, our aim is to offer good quality containers at great value.

Container Pricing

The most common question we get asked is "How Much?" and unfortunately the answer is "it depends". Our sales prices do change quite regularly so that we can keep up to date with the market and always offer customers the best price.

Our prices are calculated based on your delivery location, your off-loading requirements, the quantity of containers you need, the base box cost and the cost of any modifications you want, so it's hard for us to simply print an exact price without knowing your specific requirements.

Choosing the right container

Although new and used container prices fluctuate depending on supply, equivalent used units are always cheaper than the same new units, otherwise everyone would just buy new!

So choosing a good condition, structurally sound, second hand shipping container could be worth considering. All our used containers are wind and water tight so you can be sure when your unit arrives it will be in good condition.

Standard length containers are also generally cheaper than non-standard units, e.g. standard 20ft units are often cheaper than smaller 10ft units and 40ft containers are often cheaper than smaller 30fts. This is because standard sizes are more common, 20ft and 40fts are commonly used on container ships by shipping lines - so there is always lots of these units available. 

High cube containers are also worth considering, they are becoming increasingly popular. If you want a taller unit, high cubes offer an additional 12 inches of height compared to standard height containers. If you’re looking to convert your unit into an office, workshop, storage space 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.
