Shipping Containers in Southend

We are now supplying a wide range of shipping containers to Southend, from our holding depot in Tilbury Docks. This is great news as it allows our customers in the South East to enjoy the same competitive prices as other parts of the UK, meaning a saving of up to 30% on previous prices! Delivering direct from the depot not only saves you money from the cost of an otherwise long distance journey, it's good for the environment too! From standard 20ft shipping containers and 40ft shipping containers, to small 10ft containers adapted for storage, we can cover all your container needs in Southend.

About shipping containers

Most of our containers in Southend come with a watertight guarantee and a wide choice of sizes ranging from 5ft to 45ft. So whether you need extra space for your business, school or club, or your own personal use, there is a container to suit. We sell containers to suit all budgets at, ranging from builder's grade to brand new, and delivery of all units can be arranged by our specialist hiab service. In addition, we offer choice of doors types, and a range of optional extras, including repainting and ply lining.

Choose from new or used shipping containers in Southend

New shipping containers are sold with just one trip behind them, as they arrive in UK ports loaded with cargo for cheaper transportation. Used shipping containers will typically be around 10 - 15 years old, and the cosmetic conditions will have suffered from frequent sea-faring journeys and handling at ports. We offer a free repaint on all containers under 20ft, that will cover a lot of the cosmetic damage and greatly improve the appearance of the container. For containers over 20ft and over, we offer competitive repainting rates.

Container conversions

Start your container conversion project with a good quality shipping container. Both used and new shipping containers make a great base for conversion for a wide range of applications, including container offices, welfare units, and mobile catering outlets.

Your choice 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!
