Storage Containers for Sale in the UK

Steel Shipping Containers For Storage

We sell a wide range of shipping container sizes that are suitable for most storage requirements; we sell containers in both new 'one-trip' condition and good used condition. All our units are sold in wind and watertight condition and so are ideal for keeping your items secure and dry.

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. Containers should be viewed as a high security storage option, when compared to other conventional storage such as wooden sheds.

You can store anything you like within your container, our only recommendation is to be careful with moisture build up. If your container is opened on a wet day moisture can become trapped within the watertight unit. We recommend using moisture control devices inside your container to keep the contents dry and prevent the build-up of any condensation.

All of our units are constructed from corten steel which is designed to be corrosion resistant and long lasting, we'd expect any of our containers to last significantly longer than a standard garden shed! We offer storage boxes (containers) in various sizes and types to suit our customer's needs.

If you have specific requirements for your storage and would like the standard container modifying to suit your needs, take a look at our previous case studies and get in touch with us to discuss your project. We are able to modify standard containers and customise them to individual customer requirements, for example, we've previously fitted containers with a side personnel door to make access to the unit easier. We also offer flat pack units which are a great direct alternative to a garden shed - click here for more info - these units are great if access to your location is limited.

Small Containers are also a great option if you've got limited space!

Are Used/Second Hand Shipping Containers the best option for storage?

Used containers will provide the cheapest option, with the standard sizes - 20ft and 40ft units offering the cheapest cost per square foot. But, there are also some advantages to buying a new container

  1. Improved appearance (new containers look new!) - so if you need to make a great first impression, buying a new container could be the way to go,
  2. Lifespan - although used containers should last 10-15 years from purchase, new containers will last even longer,
  3. Shipping - if you need to use your container for shipping goods overseas then for storing goods abroad, new containers come with a valid CSC Plate and can be used for shipping goods overseas.

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 selecting the right size for you is a decision you'll have to make, the best choice will vary depending on your personal circumstances. 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.
