Flat Pack Shipping Containers
Why choose flat pack containers?
Quick and easy assembly
Our flat pack range is quick and easy to assemble with no specialist tools required.
Made from galvanised steel with inbuilt double locking system, flat pack containers offer great security.
These units are delivered in flat pack form and are completely man portable making them a perfect option for difficult to reach areas.
Demountable and portable
Flat pack containers are demountable meaning they can be relocated and re-assembled multiple times.
We offer all of our flat pack units with a 12 month fair wear and tear guarantee for additional peace of mind.
Quick and easy assembly
Take a look at our guide to erecting flat pack containers in eight simple steps. It's not as tricky as you may think, and the smallest size can be put together by two people in less than 60 minutes. The reverse process will bring your container back down to flat pack form for easy removal to a new location, or to be neatly stored away.
Flat Pack Container DimensionsWe supply these flat pack containers in three sizes 2 metre, 3 metre & 4 metre. All the units are 2.1 metres high and 2.1 metres wide. As these units are from the 'Expanda' range they are all completely modular, so additional units can be joined together at any stage, by linking them either side by side or end to end with a simple linking kit. For instance, joining up a 4m and a 2m flat pack container will give you near enough the equivalent of a 20ft shipping container, while three 4m units give you a 40ft shipping container. For reference, a 3m flat pack container is around the same size as our standard 10ft shipping containers.

Bespoke colour options from the RAL chart may be available from the manufacturer on a special order (approx. 12 week lead time) subject to confirmation.
NB: The adjustable levelling feet do not go on the corners, but approximately 400mm in. We would suggest fitting the levelling feet before assembling the rest of the unit.
Cheap delivery nationwideWe are able to offer low price delivery rates on flat pack products, as they are transported in bulk in a compact form.
Flat pack containers are typically delivered on a 26 tonne rigid lorry with a hiab crane to offload, and all deliveries are made curb-side. Although flat pack containers are designed to fit into difficult spaces, the vehicle will still need to have good access and sufficient room for the crane to setup and offload. If the delivery vehicle can't get quite where you need it, all components of the container can be carried separately. These units are completely man-portable!
To keep delivery rates competitive and cost effective, flat pack containers are quoted based on a shared delivery rate. This means we are unable to guarantee a specific time. If you need a dedicated delivery, our sales team can advise on the best option for you.
