Our used stock is sold (to us) on a next from stack basis - so we can't always guarantee the colour of the units we provide. Used units are used on container ships for international shipping for a number of years; before being replaced within the shipping fleet, at this point, these units are released for resale to resellers like us. All used containers released to us for resale are checked to ensure they are still in good serviceable condition, they are wind/watertight and should last you a further 20-25 years if looked after well.

The used sales prices that we are able to offer are calculated based on - your delivery location, your off-loading requirements, the number of units you need and the base container cost. The cost of used containers does fluctuate up and down, but it's primarily driven by availability and the base price of corresponding new units.

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.

Your Offloading Requirements - this will determine which type of vehicle we need to deliver your container on - if you can offload the container yourself when it arrives - it'll cost less!

The Number of Units you require - if you are looking to purchase more than one container we 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.

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 buy in used containers. We always try and offer the lowest prices possible.
