Shipping Containers in Manchester

Containers Direct have been supplying shipping containers in Manchester for over 20 years, with our own dedicated hiab delivery service. Based in the North West Containers Direct are able to source shipping containers directly from Garston Docks to deliver to Manchester and the North West. Local supplies means local transportation rates, so you'll find it's not just our container prices that are unbeatable, but our delivery charges too. From standard 20ft shipping containers and 40ft shipping containers to neat little 10ft storage containers, we sell all sizes, both new and used. If you are looking for a shipping container, or maybe a new build container, we convert and build these for a wide range of applications on our own local premises.

A wide range of sizes

The dimensions of our shipping containers in Manchester cater for a multitude of requirements, available from as small as 6ft in length, right up 45ft, although the best value containers to buy are the standard ISO manufactured lengths of 20ft and 40ft. The standard external width of a shipping container is 8ft but we do have some pallet wides available with an internal width of 8ft, and our high cube containers give an additional foot of head height, standing at 9'6".

Take advantage of our conversion facilties

We have our own rapidly expanding on site conversion and new-build facilities in our main depot in Liverpool which enables us to supply shipping containers in Manchester tailored to our clients own specification. For example we can modify the size of any container, add a number of different styles of doors (and/or reposition them), line and insulate, and repaint containers to any colour choice. Higher end conversions include providing bespoke accommodation and business units. Take a look at some of our Container Conversions to come out of our workshops recently.

A Range of 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!

PS - we don't just sell shipping containers!

A range of other quality steel buidlings and units are also available in addition to our shipping containers in Manchester. We sell new and reconditioned anti vandal site offices, portable toilets and steel self assembly containers at competitive prices.

"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"
