20ft containers are one of the most popular products from our range. A good all-rounder that can be used for shipping, storage or conversion. Unmodified it offers the best value for money, as 20ft is a standard manufactured size, so supply is plentiful, and in it's original form, requires no cutting.

Choose from either a once-used, or used shipping containers.

Secure storage - from household goods to industrial equipment

These days it's common to see 20ft containers used as economical and safe storage units. Made from galvanised steel to protect against corrosion and leaks, they are extremely tough, long lasting, and very hard to damage or break in to. The price of 20ft containers has been driven down because the UK ships more goods into the country than out - the surplus that arrive are resold to container dealers at competitive prices which can be passed onto the customer. Virtually anything can be stored inside, although if the items for storage are susceptible to moisture damage, we recommend having the container lined and insulated.

Modifications for storage - resizing and replacement doors

One of great advantages of using 20ft containers as storage units, is their capacity for modification. Before they are resold, shipping containers can be cut to any size the customer requires. 10ft containers are in big demand, as not everyone has the use for 20ft of storage space, or the room to home a 20ft container. Part of the process of cutting the container down to size is fitting new doors, which gives the customer the flexibility to have the new doors positioned anywhere along the container . Side doors are particularly handy for containers to be kept in areas where space is tight. Please speak to one of our sales team for more information on modifying 20ft containers.

Additional Upgrades

"Luxury" upgrades are also available and are popular with container conversions. These include wood cladding and UPVC windows. See our full list of container customisations.


Brynteg Glamping Ltd purchased a 20ft once used container. Gary from the company was very happy with both our service and the delivery!

"It has been great dealing with you. I appreciated very much your advice on the thermal coating. Many others would have just sold it me! I do like to give credit where it's due. I have some wagon drivers come here who to be fair should stick to driving a car! It's embarrassing! But Andy can handle his motor and has a professional attitude!"
