New or used containers?

Quality used storage grade containers:

Used 20ft shipping containers in London are the best value for money. Between around 15 -20yrs old before they are retired from shipping goods, used containers will be showing plenty of signs of wear and tear and surface rust, but are sold structurally sound, watertight and with a 12 month warranty. 40ft shipping containers in London give you double the length for storage space, without doubling the price!

Repainting The appearance of used shipping containers can be vastly improved by respraying with a life-extending coat rubberised marine paint.

New shipping containers for storage:

New shipping containers in London are categorised as "one trip" containers, as they will have only made one import journey to arrive in the UK with goods. They show only a small amount of wear and tear from handling and make excellent dry storage containers, able to withstand heavy loads. Made from the toughest grade of weathering steel (Corten) they are theft and vandal proof.

Optional Extras

From our main depot in Liverpool, we can supply our customers with a whole range of optional extras to create the ideal container to suit your needs, whether that's ply lining and insulation to protect your container from condensation, or simple shelving to make the most of your storage space!

Other sizes

Although regular sized 20ft and 40ft containers are the best value to buy, these sizes do not fit all, therefore we also supply irregular sixed containers - anything from 5ft upwards! If you can't find the exact container size you're looking for, we have our own on site workshops, which specialse in cutting and adapting standard sized shipping containers to give a wider range of choice to our customers.

Using our conversion facilities

We are lucky 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 London to our customers own specifications.

"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"
