New 10ft Shipping Containers

< Back to Popular Containers

Need a small storage container for long term use? Although 10ft second hand shipping containers offer great value for money, if extended years of trouble free use, or a superior cosmetic condition are important you may wish to consider a 10ft new shipping container. In the UK, most new ISO containers are also known as 'one trip containers', as they are manufactured in China and shipped over with cargo, so the odd dent or scuff mark from handling is to be expected. Other than some evidence of handling, a one trip container will be as new. We modify most of our 10 ft containers from these one trip containers, which either be a standard sized 20ft container or a 40ft container, by cutting them down to size and refurbishing them with either a new door, or new end wall. We use high-gauge strong steel for this conversion, to guarantee your container is watertight and gives unmatched levels of strength and security. This process allows us to offer a unique choice of different doors types, each designed for different needs of our customers.

Used containers should give you similar benefits as new containers. As the prices are lower, you will have an initial cost saving but the containers will be cosmetically inferior and won't last as long. We can advise whether a 10ft new shipping container or used is best for your requirements. If you need a bit more height then opt for a high cube container, which stand at a foot taller than standard size at 9ft6 high. They are a popular size for converting into chemical stores and small offices, and when ply lined and insulated make a great environment for storage of paperwork and delicate items. We also supply 10ft new shipping containers in narrow widths: our SlimeLine® range offers new 10fts in any width from 4ft wide to 7ft wide. For shipping purposes, we hold good stocks of ISO 10fts which retain the original corner posts and are certified for shipping. All of our 10 foot containers are delivered at heavily discounted rates, making weekly runs to all areas of the UK.

The Build Process

We manufacture the 10 foot container in our in-house fabrication depot. This process of fabrication involves taking 40ft new shipping containers and cutting them down to size. New walls are manufactured, using high gauge steel and matching corrugated metal panels and then the parts are fully seam welded to create new 10fts! This process is what allows us to give our customers a range of door options to best suit them. It's this emphasis on quality production that makes these the UK's best-selling 10 ft new container.

See how adaptable the 10ft can be!


The 10ft makes a sound base for small container conversion projects. Most popular for Chemical Storage, toilets, gate houses and small offices, but remember, we can convert any sized container for any purpose!

Flat pack option

Where space is at a premium or access difficult, our flat pack containers come into their own. Sizes start from 2m long!

Wider, narrower or even longer or shorter!

See our extra wide containers if the standard 8ft width is not enough. We can build to widths beyond 8ft wide and regularly take requests for 10ft wide containers. If you need something narrower then our SlimLine® range offer widths as narrow as 4ft! If 10ft is too long or short for your requirements, Containers Direct also cut to shorter or longer lengths.
