SlimLine® Shipping Containers

Shipping containers make superb storage units, strong, secure and watertight. The one down side of converted shipping containers into storage containers is the restricted sizing available "off the peg". The standard 8ft width of all shipping containers is an ISO regulation, to ensure safe, easy and affordable transportation and stacking of multiple containers. But if you want to buy a container for personal storage use, 8ft wide may not be your first choice.

The good news is that Containers Direct can offer your first choice. Our range of purpose built SlimLine® containers are built to smaller widths, giving you 5ft shipping containers or 6ft storage containers and 7ft containers, perfect for fitting into small, narrow spaces, or for storage loads that require more length than width.

Features of narrow containers

These are new builds, constructed in our own on-site workshops, with a starting point of 5ft wide to any specified length. Depending on what you want to store, you can request a length of 10ft, 12ft or 15ft. You can even have a narrow 20ft container or longer if required! If you require any other length this can also be provided. All our SlimLine® containers are made with the following specifications:
  • Cut from brand new 1.6mm thick steel sheeting, corrugated on our machines for extra strength

  • Single door (5ft wide) or Double doors (6ft-7ft wide) made from 3mm thick steel plate with locking arm and compressed door seals

  • Steel floor chassis overlaid with plywood

  • Lockbox

  • Lifting eyes

  • Painted to choice of colour

Choice of doors

The SlimLine® is offered with three door types. You can request for them to be positioned to your own preference.

S1 doors

These flat paneled doors are designed to be easy to use and with their smooth finish aesthetically pleasing. They are often the preferred choice of schools, clubs and for use as garden sheds and personal storage. The price of the SlimLine® includes the S1 door type across the whole range. These doors can also be fitted in the side upon request - £POA.
