15ft new shipping containers are not a standard manufactured length. This is because ISO containers are strictly standardised to comply with world-wide shipping trade regulations, therefore the vast majority are 20ft containers or 40ft containers, with a width of 8ft. But with the growing popularity of repurposing containers for a variety of applications, including storage and conversions, there is a big demand for all sizes. Containers Direct meet this demand by using cut down methods to make sure all our customers get the exact size they need. We are the only company to convert 15ft new shipping containers with a standard choice of four door types and a comprehensive range of optional extras, from shelving and electrics to ramps and cladding. We can modify any unit to give you the container you need at prices you can afford.

Why do we use shipping containers to build storage containers? The answer lies in their strength, security and cost. Nowhere else can you buy a better value, more dependable 15 foot unit for sale than a shipping container. After all a metal box is incredibly difficult to break into or damage structurally. Made from strong Cor-Ten steel, these 15 ft units come with a watertight guarantee and are made from genuine 40ft shipping containers cut down to size and completed with new doors, or a new end wall if you choose to retain the original doors. Our 15ft new shipping containers will be in top condition and have a long life-span, but if you are looking for the cheapest deals check out our used and refurbished containers. Second hand containers can last you a good 15 years or more, and with a repaint their cosmetic appearance is vastly improved.

Optional Extras

Our 15ft new containers all come with a steel lockbox, which protects the padlock from tampering (usual retail price £55).

The Build Process

All of our 15 foot new shipping containers are built in our in-house fabrication depot and deliver on weekly runs across the UK. The fabrication process involves taking a 40ft new shipping containers and cutting it down to 15ft in length, either retaining the original doors, end wall or neither. Based on our customers' requirements, we then manufacture new doors and walls, using high gauge steel and matching corrugated metal panels. All parts are then fully seam welded to create our new 15fts. Our emphasis on quality production makes these the UK's best-selling 15 ft new container.
