Containers for shipping

Most of the shipping containers for sale available on this website are suitable for export, comply with ISO requirements and are certified and plated. However, if you do intend to ship overseas it is always recommended that you contact the office to confirm suitability. Standard sizes for containers for export are 20ft and 40ft - take a look at this typical example of a 20ft model. For shipping larger loads this moderately priced 40ft container comes with a CSC plate, ready to be shipped.

All shipping containers are made from high tensile corten steel, and are built to withstand the rigours of overseas journeys, as well as being rust proof, watertight and highly secure.

Containers used for storage are not bound by rigid ISO shipping standards, therefore they can be adapted in all sorts of ways to fit a variey of purposes. Some common modifications for storage containers include:
