Key Features of Bespoke Length Containers

- Unsuitable for shipping overseas
- Available to be cut down from new ‘one trip’ and used containers
- Colours may vary
Standard vs. Non-Standard Container Sizes
Used shipping containers come in 20ft and 40ft lengths as standard. We can supply containers in other non-standard sizes, e.g. 10ft x 8ft, 16ft x 8ft, 24ft x 8ft, 30ft x 8ft. These containers are produced by cutting larger standard sized containers down, we can supply any length you require between 5ft – 40ft. We use good condition used containers or new containers, cut either the double doors or end panel, shorten the container body, then re-weld the doors or end panel back in place.
If you’re looking for a 16ft Steel Container, 24ft Steel Container or any other size container for that matter, we can create one for you.
Unless otherwise stated, our cut down containers come with a lock box on the double doors and are re-sprayed externally (in green as standard – other colours available but may be extra).
These containers are popular when you need a particular sized storage container, where a standard size may be a tad too small or large to accommodate your needs.
45ft Storage Container Information
We can also create containers larger than 40ft, and have previously created 45ft Shipping Containers for customers when they needed something an exact size (larger than 40ft!). In these circumstances, we would remove the solid end panel from a standard 40ft container, extend the side panels by the required amount, reinforcing the structure as required, then re-attach the removed end panel – welding it back in place, thus creating a 45ft steel container ideal for secure storage.
Containers larger than 40ft would not be suitable for standard sea shipping as they would be too large to be stacked efficiently on a transporter ships deck – but they are ideal for use on land and secure storage.
Bespoke Length 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.
We manufacture these units throughout our UK depots and they are generally ready for delivery approx. 5 working days from confirmation of order.
Shipping Container Delivery
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 provide us with your delivery post code when you enquire.
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 shipping container such as a 20ft or 40ft.
