Second Hand 10ft Shipping Containers

Second hand 10ft containers are one our most popular products; especially with schools, clubs and allotments. 10fts do not come as standard so we take a "grade A" 40ft container and slice it up to make smaller containers. We also offer a flat pack option. Because we can fabricate a container to any length our customers are not restricted to 10ft only. Need a 12 ft, 13ft, 17ft , 30ft , 12ft 4inches ? It's no problem to us! If you want to know a little more have a look at our 10 ft container article

Shipping Container News - brought to you by Sally Shipp


**UPDATED Not sure whether a new or used container is best for you? What's the difference in quality and performance between the two? And how much value can you expect to be added in paying extra for a new container? For the answers to these questions and more, read on...

**UPDATED Shipping containers are often used as the basic structure for conversion into an accommodation unit (ie site office, clubhouse, welfare cabin). They make the perfect low cost secure, anti vandal site accommodation, but as shipping containers are manufactured in a standard width of 8ft, this can sometimes prove restricting if a larger space is required. The solution to this is to join shipping containers together, side by side to give a width of 16ft, 24ft or even 32ft. These larger conversions can also be used as extended storage area.
