Shipping Containers are ideal for storage, that's why they're used on Container Ships to securely transport cargo throughout the world. Containers are made from heavy duty cor-ten steel, so when you compare this to an average garden shed made from wood or plastic, these units provide a much more secure environment. Containers provide a wind and watertight interior space to protect whatever you want to store inside and keep it dry.
We sell a wide range of shipping containers that are suitable for storage - selecting the right type/size will really depend on how much space you have, and how much storage space you need!
We sell storage in both new and used condition, the only real difference between new and used units is their appearance and age, new units will look new, they will have less dents and scratches and the paint will look great, used units might have the odd scratch or dent and the paint may look a little worn but it will still provide dry secure storage for your items. We'd expect a used unit to last several years (10+) every unit we sell is checked to ensure its wind and water tight so it is suitable for storage.
Steel Containers offer a great alternative to wooden sheds because of their increased security and more robust construction materials, to secure your container even further we can also install a lockbox. A lock box, combined with a strong padlock will ensure anything you store inside your container is secure.
You can store almost anything you like within your container - provided it'll fit, we've seen containers used for food storage, car storage, building material storage, tool storage, we'll leave what you store up to you. Our only recommendation is to be careful with moisture build up. If your unit is opened on a wet day or you add wet items to your unit, moisture can become trapped within the watertight box. We recommend using moisture control devices inside your container to keep the contents dry and prevent the build-up of any condensation.
Corten steel is designed to be corrosion resistant and long lasting, so we'd expect any of our containers to last significantly longer than a standard garden shed! We offer storage boxes (containers) in various sizes to suit our customer's needs.
If you have specific requirements for your storage or if you'd like a standard container modifying to suit your needs, take a look at our previous conversion case studies and get in touch with us to discuss your project. We've converted loads of containers for different storage applications in the past - so we're sure we'll be able to help, for example, we've previously fitted containers with a side personnel door to make access to the unit easier, we've also installed shelving and racking. You may want to consider a side opening container to improve access. We also offer flat pack units which are a great direct alternative to a garden shed as they can be constructed on-site - click here for more info - these units are great if access to your location is limited. Our Small Containers are also a great option if you've got limited space!
Used units will provide the cheapest option, with the standard sizes - 20ft and 40ft units offering the cheapest cost per square foot storage space, you can decide which size is best for you. There are some advantages to buying new
Selecting the best size container for you will depend on the amount of space you have available and the amount of storage space you need. Our containers range from small 6ft x 6ft x 6ft containers right up to 40ft high cube shipping containers so there are plenty of options to choose from. High Cube containers are great when you need extra height.
We also offer a container conversion service, some of our previous customers have chosen to partially convert their containers into workshops or site offices, combining that space with storage, if you'd like us to help with the conversion just let us know.
Self-Storage Companies! Shipping Containers are ideal, that's why many self-storage companies use them to provide usable space to their customers. If you're looking to purchase several containers to set up a new or expand an existing site, get in touch as we may be able to offer you a better rate if you're buying multiple units.
