10ft Shipping Containers

Containers Direct build the 10 foot FG3 in their fabrication depot in the North West and deliver on discounted weekly runs to all parts of the UK. This process of fabrication involves taking 40ft used shipping containers and cutting them down. New doors and walls are manufactured, using high gauge steel, matching corrugated panels and then the parts are fully seam welded to create new 10fts! It’s this emphasis on quality production that makes the FG3 the UK’s best-selling 10 ft second hand container. Learn more about how cut down containers are made.

This process of fabrication has the added benefit of giving clients a choice of 4 standard door types, along with a whole host of useful optional extras to finish off your 10ft used container.


S1 doors

These flat panelled doors are much easier to open and close and are more aesthetically pleasing. They are often the preferred choice of schools, clubs and for use as garden sheds and personal storage. Take a look at our most popular S1 container
