Flat Pack Containers offer an alternative to standard Shipping Containers for customers who need storage in awkward locations or need to move storage units around regularly. These units are quick and simple to assemble and offer great flexibility and convenience over fixed structure containers. They can be constructed and ready for use in as little as an hour, and transported without the need for a lorry mounted crane. This means they can be delivered virtually anywhere, even in the tightest of spots, AND you save money on transportation costs.

Reasons to choose Flat pack Containers

  • Easily delivered even to awkward sites

  • Can be built in less than an hour

  • Only tools required are a socket set.

  • Easy to follow instructions

  • Buildings can be extended by adding extra units side by side

The Expanda range

Flat Pack Containers are available in three sizes - 2 metres, 3 metres and 4 metres in length, and are part of our Expanda range. All units in the Expanda range are constructed from galvanised steel, making them durable, waterproof and corrosive resistant. They are available in either a galvanised finish or powder coated colour. Blue and green finishes are avaliable immediately, for other colours please allow 6 weeks lead time.

Optional Extras

Flat Pack Containers also come with a range of options including:

- forklift or self levelling feet
- snap in internal shelving
- surface mounted electrics

A dual locking system offers the high level of security you would want from a storage unit.

Other products in the Expanda range

In addition to Flat Pack Containers the Expanda range includes flat pack site offices and flat pack chemical containers which give you all the advantages of a flat pack product specially adapted for these uses.

The Glasgow High School Club purchased two flat pack containers with adjustable feet and a ramp. Mr Keith Hodgson, who dealt with the purchasing had this to say about his experience:

"I would recommend Containers Direct to anyone. From the point of contact in sales right through to the delivery driver everyone was extremely professional, knowledgeable about the product and most helpful, Well done."
