Containers for Gardens

Anyone with a garden will know how much space is needed to store away safely all those garden essentials and importantly, keep them stored with the highest levels of security possible.. For example lawnmowers, tools, and outdoor furniture during the winter months. And to add to the list for anyone without garage space - bicycles. Garden owners are increasingly turning to heavy duty metal containers as an alternative to the traditional garden shed, as metal garden sheds offer unbeatable levels of security and a long lasting solution to garden storage. Designed to industrial strength and standards these garden stores will still be standing long after a timber shed has rotted away. A traditional timber shed can be cheaper but has a much shorter lifespan and doesn't offer much in the way of security. We offer shipping containers, in all sizes, including 20ft containers, to fit the space you have available, and also flat pack container options. Choose from either small shipping containers, including SlimLine® containers with narrow widths, flat pack containers, or purpose built prefab metal sheds.

Not in my back yard? Well yes, you can with one of these!

Containers Direct have containers for gardens specifically designed for garden storage that will to fit almost any outdoor space. However small or difficult access to your garden is, this neat little 2.5m x 1.5m garden container will fit your space. It comes flat packed, ready for self assembly, and every component is man portable, so even a terraced house without side access is not a barrier to owning a shipping container shed. Their robust design also makes them hard wearing, leak-proof and long lasting. Suitable to secure all your garden equipment like lawn mowers, garden furniture or bikes, it comes with a range of optional extras, including shelving to help organise your garden storage.

Containers for gardens are delivered as flat panels which are light enough to be unloaded and carried by hand to any location. They are sturdy and will last you many years without rotting or rusting. Assembly is simple and can be done with a standard socket set and they are easy put back down again if you need to relocate your garden container. This metal tool shed is made from galvanised steel panels and has a double locking system, making forced entry very difficult.

Larger Flat Pack Steel Sheds

We offer a range of flat pack containers for gardens. These are also suitable for allotments. If you have more space, we offer a traditional flat pack store in three sizes, which are very quick and easy to assemble, making repositioning at anytime a viable option. Flat pack stores designed for bike storage are also an option for your garden. To give you some idea of how quick and easy it is to put together one of these containers, see our guide to self assembly of flat pack containers, although a comprehensive set of full instruction and fittings is provided with every purchase.

Our containers for gardens start at 2m x 2.1m, so even the smallest of gardens can accommodate one! Our medium container is 3m x 2.1m, and our largest for bigger gardens or larger storage loads is 4m x 2.1m. Because our garden stores are made from galvanised steel, they give high levels of protection against theft that other garden stores cannot compete with. A range of steel, snap in shelving is available as an optional extra for easier access to smaller storage items. Other extras include a linking kit, so you can join units together for larger areas of storage space, the option to have the doors located in the side, and double doors.

One of our clients purchased a flat pack container to use as a shed:

"Great for personal use as sheds as they don't need re-felting! More likely to cope with adverse weather. We were happy with the service all round, very informative and there was no pressure to make our decision. Good product and service thank you."Read all testimonials here!
