Extra Wide Shipping Containers

Looking for a shipping container wider than 8ft? Welcome to Containers Direct, home of the New Build Container

We are one of the only UK manufacturers of the extra wide new build shipping container, offering single bespoke builds to order. Many of our competitors require bulk orders for special build containers, including extra large storage containers and extra wide shipping containers, so if you require a "one-off" you've come to the right place!

The WideLine® range - extra wide containers at affordable prices

1510 WideLine
2010 WideLine

3010 WideLine
4010 WideLine
Our WideLine range offers four standard lengths at a fixed low-price. Direct from our dedicated 10ft wide, new build container workshop, retooled to streamline and refine production, we can pass the benefits of improved speed and efficiency on to our customers in the price-tag.

Top reasons to chose a WideLine®:

  1. Certified quality! Due to the size, weight and increased load-bearing of WideLines®, each container is supplied with a set of certified structural calculations to ensure this product is up to the job, strong enough to last and fit for purpose.

  2. Corner castings! These are included as standard for the safe stacking of WideLine® containers, so if you need another WideLine® container in the future, and you want them safely stacked on top of one another, you're already covered!

  3. Fully portable! Portable buildings are classed as a temporary structure, therefore they usually don't require planning permission. This is great news if for instance you are struggling to get permission to build a conventional garage on your property, as our 10ft wide containers are frequently bought by our clients for this reason.

What is the widest container available?

You may be wondering exactly how wide the widest shipping containers are. We build new extra large containers to widths from 9ft up to 12ft. Any wider and delivery becomes difficult! However, if more width is required, we can build from scratch new shipping containers designed to link together to form larger spaces.

We can also modify both new and used 20ft shipping containers and 40ft shipping containers, to create spaces as wide as 16ft, 24ft, or even 32ft. We do this by joining up shipping containers; simple to deliver and designed to easily fit together on your site. If you require any other lengths we can accommodate those too, including small sizes such as the popular 10ft shipping container. We usually hold in stock standard 20ft by 10ft wide storage containers for quick dispatch, and we build to order extra wide containers for a whole range of applications, including container offices and shipping container classrooms, and extra large storage containers too. If you have a lot of stuff to store it may be easier to site a large shipping container rather than two smaller ones.

Don't just take our word for it! Read what our customers have had to say:

From TONE Scaffolding, who purchased a 15ft x 10ft new build container, with roller shutters on each end:

"Very helpful and product was exactly what was expected."

From Heather Dixon:

"Just to let you know the container has arrived and we are delighted with it. The haulier was excellent, it was not easy access for him but he did a fantastic job without complaint. Overall it's been a fantastic service from you all from start to finish and a great product."

From Naomi - Leeds Bike Mill

"The best price I could find for a non-standard size container. Especially as it includes repainting - great range of colour choices. I was concerned about ordering from far away (local companies are able to do a site survey) but was able to communicate by email about the site to reassure us. The delivery company was also excellent and placed the container perfectly despite the site being a bit tricky."
