10ft Used Shipping Containers

Containers Direct are the UK's largest supplier of 10ft used shipping containers with discounted weekly delivery runs to all parts of the country. Whether you are looking for a quality 10ft used shipping container, a new 10ft shipping container or a refurbished 10ft Containers Direct have the capacity to supply the right quality at the right price, wherever you are in the UK. 10 ft used shipping containers make excellent storage containers but can also be modified for a container conversion project. To ensure a faster service, that puts quality at the forefront, we manufacture and modify 10 foot containers in our own dedicated workshops, rather than relying on sub-contractors. This allows us to have total control over quality from initial enquiry through to delivery. The 10ft is offered with a unique choice of door types to choose from, which you can explore below, each designed to suit different requirements in terms of usage, cost and security.

10ft steel storage containers are suitable for a wide range applications, such as storage for schools, allotments, clubs, businesses, construction sites, and conversions. We can even create a 10ft container office. Their neat 10 foot size makes them ideal for smaller spaces, or smaller storage loads. The structure of shipping containers offers unrivalled strength and security, and they come with a 12 month watertight guarantee, making them one of our biggest selling containers. Choosing whether to buy a new or a 10ft second hand shipping container can be tricky, so Containers Direct have a dedicated team of sales advisors to help you make the right choice. If you are looking for something bigger then try our used 20ft shipping containers, or if you have the space, even a used 40ft shipping container, as these offer the best value of all in terms of price per square foot.

Optional Extras

Free with ALL 10ft Used Shipping Containers


The price of 10ft second hand containers includes exterior re-spraying with our specialist rubberised container paint, in a choice of standard RAL colours. Please note, for very light or bright paint options there is a supplementary charge.


All our 10ft containers come with a steel lockbox, which protects the padlock from tampering (usual retail price £55).

The Build Process

Containers Direct build the 10 foot container in their fabrication depot and deliver on discounted weekly runs to all parts of the UK. This process of fabrication involves taking used 40ft shipping containers and cutting them down to make 10ft containers. New doors and walls are manufactured, using high gauge steel, matching corrugated metal panels and then the parts are fully seam welded to create new 10fts! It's this emphasis on quality production that makes these the UK's best-selling 10 ft second hand container. Learn more about how cut down containers are made.
