Second Hand 30ft Shipping Containers

30ft used shipping containers are a size that we always hold in stock. ISO shipping containers usually come out of the factory as 40ft or 20ft, the universal size for intermodal transport and shipping, however if want the strength, security and low cost offered by a proper shipping container you may well not want to be restricted to these sizes. We specialise in modifying 40fts to any length required with 30ft used shipping containers being one of the most popular lengths. 30ft used containers are a popular choice for use as basic storage containers, with perhaps the addition of optional extras such as ply lining or repainting. Often we are asked to fit doors in the side for easier access or add windows and pedestrian doors for use as a workshop or office space. The 30ft is also a common size for more industrial conversions such as biomass boiler houses or for housing heavy machinery, where vents, sliding roofs and more complex engineering work is required. Check this out for an example!

We create 30fts by taking new or second hand 40fts and cutting them into two new containers - one 30 ft and one 10 ft. 10ft containers are in high demand too so the cost of the conversion work is spread across the two boxes. Not only does cutting down used containers produce a wider choice of sizes, but also allows them to be refurbished with new steel doors. Picture a whole metal box cut up into two pieces - only one will have the door remaining intact, so we have to fabricate a new door to complete the other newly created container. This allows us to create different door types to suit individual customer needs. We offer 4 door types as standard on all of our containers for sale. The S1 and S2 doors are the cheapest to buy, but the S4 Roller Shutter option or the higher price of the premium quality S3 door type offer great value too.

Optional Extras





The Build Process

We supply 30 foot containers from our in-house fabrication depot and deliver to all parts of the UK. In order to supply our customers with a choice of doors, we cut down 40ft shipping containers into both a 30 ft long and 10ft long container. One of our new doors and end walls are then added, using high gauge steel and matching corrugated metal panels, which are fully seam welded. Learn more about how cut down containers are made.
