New ‘one trip’ shipping containers for UK sale
New standard shipping containers and specialised ‘one trip’ shipping containers for sale throughout the UK.
We sell new containers in the standard shipping container sizes; including new 20ft and new 40ft containers. We also source and sell many specialised container sizes/types including the increasingly both 20ft high-cube and 40ft high-cube containers. so if you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, just contact us – we’d love to help you buy a new shipping container.
All of our new shipping containers are available for sale throughout the UK, our delivery prices will vary depending on your delivery location i.e. the distance you are from one of our depots. Delivery costs are also impacted by your unloading requirements when we drop-off your container, please let us know if you are able to unload your container as this will likely reduce the price we are able to offer! We wouldn’t expect most customers to have the required equipment to unload a new shipping container so as standard we’ll quote with unloading included! Please see our delivery page for more info on container delivery.
We want to make buying a new container from us easy – if you have any questions, give us a call.
Our new container stock is bought directly from our suppliers in the far east. New units are transported into the UK on container ships with some ‘clean’ cargo, they’re then sold as new ‘one-trip’ units. All new containers for sale in the UK have been used once – unfortunately, no one produces new containers in the UK. One-trip units are still in excellent as-new condition, they’re wind/watertight and will have only very minor cosmetic imperfections.
How is the price of a new container calculated?
The new sales prices that our sales team are able to offer are calculated based on several factors as detailed below. The cost of new containers does fluctuate up and down, depending on local issues in the far east, over the past few years the cost of new containers has steadily increased, and we do expect this to continue, so there is no better time to buy a new container.
Your Delivery Location – this will affect our delivery costs; we’ll always try and keep delivery costs as low as possible but the cost will largely depend on the distance your location is from one of our depots. Collection from one of our depots is also a great way to reduce the overall cost of your new container.
Your Offloading Requirements – this will determine which type of vehicle we need to deliver your container on – if you can offload the container when it arrives we’ll use transport without a HIAB so the delivery will cost less!
The Number of Units you require – if you are looking to purchase more than one container our sales team may be able to offer you each container at a slightly reduced price as we may be able to reduce the delivery costs per unit. If you’re a business looking to bulk order containers, we may be able to offer a reduced rate for bulk purchases or b2b container sales.
The Base Container Cost – the price we are able to offer our customers largely comes down to the price at which we are able to bulk buy in our new containers. We always try and offer the lowest prices possible.
