Key Information for New 40ft Containers

All 40ft (40ft long x 8ft wide x 8ft 6 inches tall) New ‘One Trip’ Shipping Containers are manufactured in China and have one cargo to the UK before being resold. This ‘one trip’ to the UK explains the term often used to describe new steel shipping containers, which are still in excellent ‘as new’ condition. 

New 40-foot units are ideal for cost-effective secure storage – they are wind and watertight and have good quality door seals to provide an ideal storage environment. If you’re looking for 66.83m3 of secure storage – you’ve just found it. 

If you require your New ‘One Trip’ Shipping Container for shipping overseas, the original CSC certification lasts for 5 years from the date of manufacture. The manufacture date is clearly stated on the CSC plate which is on the double doors of each container. CSC certification can then be extended after this initial 5-year period.

40ft Container Construction

40ft containers and 20ft containers (20ft x 8ft x 8ft 6inches) are considered within the industry as the standard shipping container sizes. These new units are manufactured using high quality corten steel which is corrosion resistant and designed to stand up to the harsh rigours of sea conditions. Heavy duty corrosion resistant steel makes the units cargo worthy for as long as possible. On top of this, the containers are also painted to protect the steel as much as possible and extend the containers lifespan. 

Internal flooring is formed from 27mm heavy duty hardwood. The external paint colour is usually green or blue, but may vary, if you need a specific colour please let our sales team know when you make your enquiry.

New Container Security

The new units that we sell are fitted with a lockbox on the double doors as standard. This is a metal box welded on the double doors to enclose a padlock, thus making it less tamper-proof. If required, we can also supply a high-security padlock.

Container Delivery Info
