Shipping Containers UK. Updated daily with new and secondhand containers for storage or shipping



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!)

Choose your doors

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.

S1 doors

These flat panelled doors, are much easier to open & close & are more aesthetically pleasing. They are often the preferred choice of schools, clubs & for use as garden sheds & personal storage. Take a look at our most popular 10ft S1 container

S2 doors

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 & close them! See our standard 10ft S2 container

S3 doors

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 & has rubber door seals. See our 10ft S3 container for more product details

Keeping your container condensation free

All our containers can be treated with Grafotherm, a highly effective solution to keep condensation within containers at bay. To treat a 10ft container the cost is 100.

Don't forget - the price of all of our 10ft containers includes re-spraying to your choice of colour and a protective steel cover for the padlock, retail price normally 50!


Michael J Snell from Alva Glen Car Park was very happy with the 10ft storage container which fitted conveniently and neatly on the car park's premises.

"Just to say that we had our first workday today using the new container for storing our tools. Everyone is very impressed.

Thanks for you help.
