10FT CONTAINERS SECOND HAND
Shipping containers come as a standard 8ft wide, and either 20ft or 40ft in length, so 10ft containers are usually cut down from 40ft containers. A 40ft shipping container will therefore produce four 10ft containers one of which will have the original container doors & one the original container end (or front wall to the use the proper terminology!)
This process of conversion enables clients to choose the type of doors most suitable for purpose. From most suppliers the choice will be between original container doors or flat panelled doors. We believe that the level of security offered between the two is very similar. Containers Direct offer a third, exclusive option, which combines the best features of both.
These flat panelled doors, are much easier to open and close and are more aesthetically pleasing. They are often the preferred choice of schools, clubs and for use as garden sheds & personal storage. Take a look at our most popular 10ft S1 container
Price of container with S1 doors - £1095 plus VAT
The original door is most popular on building sites & has the advantage of having the rubber door seals to seal the unit. The disadvantage is that you often have to be a burly builder to open and close them! See our standard 10ft S2 container
Price of container with S2 doors - £1095 plus VAT
At Container Direct we offer a unique third option which combines the advantages of both types of door. We are lucky to have manufacturing facilities on site and have designed a manufactured door which is both easy to use and has rubber door seals. See our 10ft S3 container
