Containers Direct have a wide variety of STEEL CONTAINERS FOR SALE. Before deciding which one to buy, it's important to understand which type is best for the specific use you require a container, otherwise you could be making an expensive error.

STEEL CONTAINERS FOR SALE are broadly divided into two categories - those suitable for shipping and those suitable for storage. This can be confusing to the buyer as some containers fit into both categories, and technically most steel containers are shipping containers. However in order for a shipping container to be passed as fit for shipping purposes, it must be of a certain condition, without any alterations and hold a current CSC plate, which is the equivalent of an MOT for containers.

These 20ft nearly new STEEL CONTAINERS FOR SALE are ideal for shipping. For lower priced shipping containers we also sell good condition used containers, plated for shipping, but will also make great storage containers.

But a large proportion of STEEL CONTAINERS FOR SALE will be purchased for storage only, so although they are still shipping containers, they don't need to meet the required shipping standards, and many of these have been adapted to make better storage containers. These modifications include containers that are cut to different sizes, and/or have new doors added, or doors repositioned to the long side of the container instead of the front end. If you are buying a container for storage these features can enhance your container, but if you attempt to use a shipping container sold as a storage unit for shipping purposes this will be a costly mistake.

If you are buying a container for storage it's important to assess the condition, as previous use will affect its quality as much as the age. To make a suitable storage unit it must be structurally sound and wind and watertight, otherwise your stored items could get damaged. As it's not always practical for our customers to personally inspect every container, Containers Direct offer a 12 month warranty on most STEEL CONTAINERS FOR SALE.
