30ft containers are hard to come by, because to conform to ISO standards enabling shipping containers to be stacked safely on top of one another for the voyage, the vast majority of shipping containers are either 20ft or 40ft long. However, having restricted sizes is not always convenient for buyers wanting to use a shipping container for storage. This is why cut down shipping containers have become so popular for storage - you can make virtually any size of container required by taking standard 20ft and 40ft shipping containers and slicing them up.

Making up 30ft containers

Containers Direct usually supply 30ft containers cut down from 40ft containers, to give the customer more choice. Made up from top quality shipping containers, 30ft containers are unrivalled in terms of strength and resilience to theft and damage. We highly recommend them as an excellent site store for heavy materials, or large loads such as building materials and machinery because:

  • They have lock boxes added to protect the padlocks from being sheered off

  • If required they can retain the original ISO shipping doors with rubber seals. For doors fabricated from lighter, flat panels that are easier to use, see our choice of door options
We offer a full range of optional extras to enhance and adapt your container for your personal use.

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

Side doors

For easier loading and loading, we can supply 30ft containers with side doors and additional doors.

For different side door options and styles, see our page 30ft Side Door Containers.

Regional depots for the best delivery rates

We have 30ft containers located in our various supply depots across the country, which means we can offer delivery on these at a discounted charge.

30ft container office conversions

We also sell 30ft containers that have been converted into site offices. Site offices combine the benefits of an anti vandal shipping container with the facilities provided by welfare units.
