24ft New Shipping Containers

24ft New Shipping Containers for Sale
24ft new shipping containers are manufactured exclusively at Containers Direct. As 24ft is not a standard size of container - ie 20ft and 40ft -they need to be cut down from these readily available sized containers, and completed with the addition of new doors or end walls.

For new cut down 24ft shipping containers we start the process with a 40ft container that has only had one import journey, as standard 40ft shipping containers are manufactured in China. Once the container arrives on our shores we take it into our workshops to modify to the required size. Find out more about cut down containers. We also offer cut and shut containers if the container is needed for lifting heavy loads or stacking.

Choose your own doors

As part of the manufacturing process we allow our customer to select from a choice of five door types which will reflect your specific need for a shipping container. You may choose to retain the original shipping container door, in which case only a new end wall is required for your 24ft new shipping container. For standard storage use we recommend S1 or S3 doors as they are quick and easy to use.

Doors in the side

These can be useful for a number of reasons, including easy access and the option to site your container with the longside facing out. We can also fit extra wide side doors, and multiple sets, and side doors can be either replace the end door, or be fitted in addition to it.
Prices for additional doors are:

S1 and S2 - £645,

S3 - £805
