One trip or second hand 10ft containers for sale

We offer our 10ft shipping containers in a one trip and second hand option.

10ft one trip shipping containers for sale

In the UK, new shipping containers are defined 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.

Containers Direct is very unique in the industry as the majority of new shipping containers are manufactured and sold in the standard 20ft and 40ft sizes, however we are able to efficiently fabricate from a 40ft new shipping container four new 10ft units in our own workshop.

** AMAZING VALUE ** All of our 10ft containers come with a FREE steel lockbox included, which protects the padlock from tampering (usual retail price £55)

10ft second hand shipping containers for sale

With our second hand 10ft containers, we use the exact same method, just cutting down from a 40ft used box, again complete with a free lockbox. To achieve a good appearance we also include a free repaint in a colour of your choice on all second hand 10fts, see our RAL chart for options.

Please note cut down containers are not suitable for shipping, stacking or lifting when loaded. They can be modified upon request if these conditions are required. Unless we are told of height restrictions, we may allocate either 8'6" or 9'6" depending on which one next comes out of the stow. Please speak to us if you have any particular requirements we should be aware of.
