Key Information for Used 10ft Containers
Our 10ft Used Refurbished Containers are cut-down from a standard size container such as a 20ft or 40ft and fitted with either a new set of double doors (or flat panel fabricated doors) or corrugated panel. The containers are guaranteed wind and watertight, resprayed externally in dark green and fitted with a secure lockbox, but are no longer cargo worthy, and unable to be used to be shipped.
These containers are popular when you just don’t quite have the space for a standard size shipping container.
10ft 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.
To form a used/refurbished 10ft container for resale, a standard used, cargo worthy container that is both wind and watertight is cut down. To reform the container a set of pre-fabricated double end doors and/or an end panel is then re-welded into position (also known as “cut & shut”), as a result of this process the container is no longer cargo worthy.
Due to the fabrication process - unless otherwise stated, our 10ft x 8ft x 8ft 6″ containers are re-sprayed externally in our traditional dark green (other colours available on request but maybe extra). We weld a lockbox on the double doors for security.

*Dimensions stated above can be different with each 10ft used refurbished container as they are formed by cutting down a larger container
Used Shipping Container Security
Your container comes as standard fitted with a lockbox (a steel box welded on the double doors to enclose a padlock thus making it less tamper-proof).
Container Delivery Info
We manufacture these units throughout our UK depots and they are generally ready for delivery approx. 7-10 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). Please be sure to provide us with your delivery post code on the enquiry form below.
Note that a container formed from a cut-down (e.g. 10ft, 16ft, 24ft or 30ft) is likely to cost more foot-for-foot than a standard size container such as a 20ft or 40ft. As we are cutting down the container, we can actually cut this to any length you require. Find out more on our Bespoke Container Lengths page.
