New 24ft Shipping Containers

< Back to Popular Containers
24ft new shipping containers are manufactured with care and attention to quality and detail, exclusively at Containers Direct. We always hold stock in store if you're in a hurry! As 24 ft is not a standard size of ISO container, such as a 20ft or 40ft, in order to create a 24 foot we cut down from a new original 40 ft container. We use new ISO containers for this product, but we also offer the choice of second hand 24ft containers for sale at cheaper prices. Whether you buy new or used, both come with a wind and watertight guarantee and are made from CORTEN steel, giving unrivalled strength and security. As well as giving you a strong and secure storage container they are also provide an ideal basis from which to produce a wide range of shipping containers conversions such as portable site offices, workshops, classrooms and chemical stores as well as for joining together to created larger spaces. Cutting down larger containers allows us to offer our customers a unique choice of four metal door types each designed for different applications and different groups of users.

Save money on delivery of 24ft new shipping containers with our nine depots located nationwide. This means that wherever you live we can get your container to you fast and at a cost that won't break the bank. If you need your container modified we carry out all work in our own workshops before delivery. Our highly skilled workforce can modify with cladding, ply lining or fitting doors in the side of any 24 foot container, to name but a few of our comprehensive range of optional extras. Let us know what you need and we will do it!

The Build Process

Our 24 foot shipping containers are all built in our in-house fabrication depot. We add new doors and walls from high gauge steel and matching corrugated steel panels to our new 24ft containers, made from cut down 40ft containers. All new pieces are then fully seam welded to give a robust, leak-proof box, making these the UK's best 24 ft container. Learn more about how we make cut down containers.

See how versatile the 24ft can be!


A shipping container makes an excellent base for a conversion project. It's strong and versatile and can be used for container conversion projects, from offices to workshops, garages to pop-up catering units, chemical stores and much more.

Flat pack option

For hard to reach areas our flat pack containers are the answer. Easy to assemble and join up together to give any required size, they are completely man portable, meaning you can carry them to wherever you want them!

Bespoke sizes

For extra wide spaces we can join up containers, which are ideal for the extra width needed for garages and larger offices. Alternatively we can build new containers, to give wider or narrower dimensions than a standard 8ft. For these type of containers see our SlimLine® range or extra wide range.
