6ft Wide Containers

With our extensive on-site workshops at Containers Direct, we've been able to offer our clients a unique range of new build containers for storage, which we can make to ANY requested dimensions. This is an exciting development as traditionally the vast majority of storage containers on the market in the UK are used shipping containers and therefore restricted to a standard width of 8ft.

Although we've always provided cut up shipping containers of different lengths to our clients, our new build service means we can now offer width and height variations too.

6ft wide containers for tight spaces and small loads

Some of our most popular containers manufactured using our new build facilities are 6ft wide, a handy SlimLine® container for fitting into tight or restricted spaces. SlimLine® containers can be built to any length or height so you don't need to compromise on overall capacity. For instance, this 6ft wide container has a length of 20ft.

Here are some of the most popular uses our clients have been buying our 6ft wide containers for:
  • bike storage

  • archive paperwork store

  • tool store

  • allotment/garden sheds

  • sports and hobby equipment

How we make 6ft wide containers

  1. Using our specialist machines, brand new sheets of steel are cut to size and corrugated to your chosen profile for reinforced strength

  2. The floor panel is made from a steel framework and overlaid with ply

  3. Doors are cut from steel and finished off with a compressable seal, locking arm and lockbox to protect the padlock

  4. Lifting lugs are fitted for lifting and moving your container

  5. The finished container is painted externally to the colour of your choice

SlimLine® containers are also available in 6ft and 7ft widths.

For other sizes please contact a member of our sales team who will be happy to arrange building your specified size container.

Optional extras

To enhance the performance of your container, the following options are available upon request:
  • Lining and insulating - using ply wood and rockwool to maintain a more constant temperature within the container and eliminate condensation

  • Grafotherm - a cheaper but effective solution to condensation problems. The inside of the container is treated with a spray on coating

  • Electrics- basic installation includes 2 twin sockets, 2 strip lights and heater

  • Shelving - great for organising the contents of your container

  • Melamine lining - for containers used in the catering and food trade, we can line the walls with melamine - easy to clean, sealed with plastic trim
