New 25ft Shipping Containers

< Back to Popular Containers
Containers Direct are one of the biggest suppliers of 25ft new shipping containers in the UK. We always hold stock in store if you're in a hurry! The supply of 25ft containers is limited by ISO size standardisations for shipping, but we make our own non-standard size containers for the storage market, or to convert for a wide range of applications. Our 25ft new shipping containers are cut down from 40ft shipping containers and fitted with either new doors or a new back wall to complete the unit. Our new doors are made with 3mm steel for security and strength, whilst our container walls in matching corrugation are 16 gauge providing equal strength as if it was from the existing container. The remaining piece of the container is made into a 15ft unit, so no part goes to waste! Containers are fully seam welded to ensure a lasting watertight join, and are have a year's guarantee to that effect. This also applies to our 25 ft used shipping containers, which are manufactured in the same way, but from second hand containers. Whether you buy a new or used 25 foot unit, you can be assured of great value and outstanding quality at affordable prices. What's more, with every container made we offer a choice of four door types, and the option of side doors.

As well as offering a range of non-standard container sizes for sale, we sell refurbished containers. We can modify any container to fit the intended purpose, which can mean anything from doors in the side, an extra strong metal ramp or ply lining to a full scale conversion into an office or workshop, for example. Tell us what you need and we can make it! Delivery charges are kept to a minimum as we hold stock of 25ft new shipping containers in all our supply depots located at nine strategic points across the country, so there's no need to pay the cost of a long distance delivery.

The Build Process

All of our 25 foot shipping containers are manufacturerd in our on-site fabrication depot. Using high gauge steel and matching corrugated steel panels, we add new end walls and doors to our new 24ft containers, and then fully seam weld all pieces together to give a robust, leak-proof box. This is why we are the UK's preferred supplier for a 25 ft container. Learn more about how we make cut down containers.

See how versatile the 24ft can be!


Have a container conversion projectin mind? 25fts can be modified to give spacious conversions such as portable offices, chemical stores, classrooms and more. We can carry out anything from simple installations to make your container fit for purpose, to high end, full scale conversions.
Flat pack option

Designed to overcome the hurdle of tricky site access. Flat pack containers are available in three sizes but can be joined together to create larger areas of space with no limits in any location. If you are concerned you don't have room for a shipping container then think flat pack.
Bespoke sizes

Our range of extra wide containers cater for anything above 8ft. Our custom build 10ft wide container range is the most popular choice when 8ft is wide not enough. Alternatively we can join up new or used shipping containers to give unlimited width. If you need a narrower container then see the SlimLine® range catering for widths below 8ft. And we can cut containers to ANY length if you require longer or shorter than 25ft.


"I received nothing but genuinely superb service from everyone from start to finish. Everyone was helpful, professional, quick to respond and knowledgeable from sales to accounts to transport. Price was superb and next time I need a container (!) you will be the first call. As you've probably gathered, very pleased"
