Shipping Containers in Blackburn

Looking for shipping containers in Blackburn? Containers Direct have been delivering shipping containers in Blackburn from the docks in Garston for over 20 years with our own in-house hi-ab transport service. Our experience in the business has taught us it makes good economical sense to supply our clients with containers from their nearest supplier depot rather than charge for the cost of a long distance delivery across the country. Therefore we strive to source clients the best value containers locally in order to pass these substantial savings on. We supply an extensive range of shipping and storage containers, from standard used 20ft shipping containers to cut down containers of all lengths, so whether you're looking for a quality 8ft shipping container or a large 40ft shipping container, we have them stock ready to deliver to Blackburn.

Containers for shipping

Containers for shipping are called ISO containers, and must meet the criteria set down by the International Standards Organisation for safe sea transportation. Any container passed as suitable for shipping will hold a certificate, known as a CSC plate, which will allow it to travel at sea. We offer the two standard sizes of shipping containers: 20ft and 40ft in length. We also offer both used and once-used shipping containers. Once-used containers are categorised as nearly new as they have had minimal use and therefore few signs of wear and tear. Our used containers are lower priced than once-used, but are still structurally sound and cargo worthy, protect by our 12 month warranty.

High standards and customer satisfaction guaranteed

Customer satisfaction and high standards are important to us, so we always inspect the container being sold before dispatch, to guarantee it is structurally sound, watertight and suitable for the job required by our clients. This is especially important when the container is required for shipping, as standards are more rigid for containers used for shipping than they are for storage. But whether you are choosing a container for shipping or storage, our warranty policy gives you peace of mind and covers your container for 12 months - full details can be found in Clause 6 of our Terms and Conditions.

Containers for Storage and Conversion Projects

We are fortunate enough to have our own conversion and new-build facilities on site in our main depot in Liverpool, which means we can supply shipping containers in Blackburn to our customers own specifications. Whether that's a simple cut down container to a specific length, a modified container with doors in the side and ply lining, or even a full scale conversion like a pop-up catering unit or shop, exhibition stands or new build garage container. Give our sales team a call to discuss your requirements!
