Collapsible Containers

Collapsible containers are mobile storage units, or flat pack containers that are screwed together on site, while maintaining the capacity for quick and easy relocation. This makes them a great all rounder for general purpose storage in any setting, either business or domestic, either on a permanent or temporary basis. These metal containers are strong and secure, have a two euro deadlocks to deter thieves, and are suitable for any setting.

Quick and easy!

The whole process of moving a collapsible container should take no more than a couple of hours from start to finish and can be done during quiet times at work (or on your day if used for private storage).

These containers can go to the parts other containers cannot reach! Non collapsible stores require hiab delivery (lorry mounted cranes) which is not only expensive, but can be impossible for places with limited access. This is where collapsible containers come into their own, because they are transported in a flat pack, there are no obstacles to getting them delivered, even if it's to the back of your house! On top of this, you will make substantial savings on the cost of delivery. This also makes them ideal as a mobile store, for frequent moving. Choice from galvanised or powder coated in blue or green.

Combining lower costs with quality

Our collapsible containers represent great value for money, while also retaining their reputation as the UK's best quality flat pack container. They are manufactured from steel, with ply board flooring in a steel frame, giving them longevity and resistance to damage, intruders and adverse weather conditions. They come complete with a double locking system and a range of optional extras including snap in shelving, levelling feet and a ramp. This is also a modular product, which means that with the aid of a simple linking kit you can join the units together to create larger areas if storage space. They can be joined either end-to-end or side-by-side.
Containers with in-built insulation are available if you are planning to store contents susceptible to the effects of cold and condensation.

Taking the hassle out of self assembly

Full technical support is offered on the how to put together our collapsible containers, but if you are wary of self assembly products (which have been given a bad name by certain stores that shall remain nameless), have a look at our initial guide and make up your own mind. No specialist tools are required and two people can have the 2m store up in less than an hour. Larger collapsible containers of 3m and 4m will take a little more manpower, but the process remains the same. All sizes are compact enough when collapsed to be stashed away for future use.
