Second Hand 24ft Shipping Containers

< Back to Popular Containers

Containers Direct are filling the gap in the market for non-standard size containers by fabricating our own 24ft used shipping containers especially for storage use. These unique sized containers are made in our own workshops by cutting down standard size 40ft ISO steel shipping containers which are then refurbished with new doors and a range of features to give an excellent storage product. We always hold stock in store if you're in a hurry!

Choose from second hand or new 25ft shipping containers as the starting point for a strong, watertight product and a guarantee of the best strength and security of any storage container you'll find for sale. Our used 24ft shipping container prices reflect both value and quality and you also save money on the cost of delivery when you buy from Containers Direct with weekly runs to most parts of the UK. See our choices of door types and range of optional extras, and let us know if you can't see what you are looking for; if you can think it, we can make it!

Benefits of 24ft used shipping containers


Shipping containers are manufactured from 16 guage Corten steel making them strong and secure.


Our in-house depot can modify and convert shipping containers for a variety of different uses.


Shipping containers benefit from being portable, meaning you can move them when needed.


With an extensive range of optional extras to choose from, have your container modified to suit you.


We offer all our shipping containers with a 12 month guarantee for your peace of mind.

Optional Extras

We can also modify used 24ft shipping containers with a range of optional extras to either enhance your storage facility or convert the container into something else, such as a portable office, chemical store or pop up retail unit. 24 ft is roomy enough inside to work out of, but neat enough to fit into spaces too small for a traditional bricks and mortar buildings. And of course metal containers are portable, so they can be relocated when required.

Modifications can be as simple as doors in the side, or as ambitious as ply lining on the inside and wood cladding on the outside. We want all our customers to have plenty of choice, so they get the right container that's fit for purposes, regardless of whether it's a full scale conversion or a simple 24 foot container for basic storage.

Recommended Product for Used 24ft Containers



All our 24ft containers come with a steel lockbox, which protects the padlock from tampering (usual retail price £55).
Exterior repaint in our specialist rubberised container paint is recommended on used containers, not only to improve the aesthetic appearance but also to extend the lifespan of the container.

The Build Process

Our 24 foot shipping containers are all built in our in-house fabrication depot. We take a 40ft used shipping container and cut down to 24ft long, before adding new doors and walls from high gauge steel and matching corrugated steel panels. All new pieces are then fully seam welded to give a robust, leak-proof box. Quality is always at the forefront of production, making these the UK's best 24 ft second hand container.

See how versatile the 24ft can be!


The 24ft is a good size "in between" size and is popular for container conversion projects, easily adapted to make a portable office, catering unit, retail outlet and much more. We carry out an extensive range of modifications for a wide variety of purposes.
Flat pack option

Flat pack containers come in three sizes, each of which can be joined together to give the right sized area of storage space that you require. As they are man portable in flat pack form, they are perfect for areas with difficult access too.
Bespoke sizes

As well as cutting containers down to any length, we offer varying width options. Need a unit wider than 8ft? We can make extra wide containers that are custom built to any width. Alternatively we can join up standard width shipping containers to give you space as wide as you like. Or if you need a container narrower than 8ft then check out our SlimLine® range.
