20ft Used Shipping Containers

20ft used containers are essentially a metal box made from Corten steel which makes them waterproof, extremely strong and very difficult to damage or break into. Also known as ISO shipping containers, they are designed to transport cargo overseas but make ideal steel storage containers too, both in terms of cost and security. Offering great value for money, 20ft used shipping containers are one of our most popular products. They also provide a great structure from which to modify and convert, even if this is something as simple as adding easy to use doors or putting extra doors in the side. Containers Direct are the only company that offer as standard 4 door types in the 20ft used shipping container range as well as an industry leading range of useful optional extras. 20ft used shipping containers are a popular size for people who want the security of a steel storage unit but are working with a smaller budget. The second hand 20ft is amongst the cheapest option available to buy in the UK.

We have a good range of great value, new 20ft shipping containers and used 20 foot storage containers for resale, at prices you're guaranteed to like. All our used 20ft shipping containers for sale will all have been quality checked or refurbished to ensure they are structurally sound and watertight before they are released for sale at a competitive price. To further assure our customers of the highest standards in the industry, we only select good quality used containers, and all of our 20ft second hand shipping containers come with a 12 month warranty. Used boxes can vary in terms of cosmetic appearance, but an exterior repaint will cover any cosmetic damage and wear and tear. In an industry dominated by re-sellers and agents, we are lucky to have our own in-house production facilities. This enables us to offer a unique choice of four different doors types as standard, each designed for the differing needs of our customers:

Repainting

We would suggest adding an exterior repaint in our specialist rubberised container paint to any of our used containers, as this improves the aesthetic appearance and may extend the lifespan of the container. The price to repaint a second hand 20ft container in a standard RAL colour - £190.00 plus VAT


Optional Extras





The Build Process

Containers Direct supply 20 foot containers from their fabrication depot and deliver on to all parts of the UK. In order to supply the choice of doors 40ft shipping containers are often used to cut down 20 ft long sections. New doors and end walls are then manufactured, using high gauge steel, matching corrugated metal panels which are fully seam welded to create new 20fts. The focus is always on quality production and customer choice. Learn more about how cut down containers are made.

We can even join up containers to give you extra wide spaces - perfect for the extra space required in garages and larger offices. Alternatively we can build new containers, providing wider or narrower widths than the standard 8ft, such as from our SlimLine range or 10ft+ range.





TESTIMONIALS


From Sue Brooks; Brooks Transport
"My initial enquiry to Cory Fairhurst gave me complete confidence in the spec, price + delivery of the container I was looking for. Lauren Mcintosh organised delivery & my communication with the transport. Overall I cannot fault the service I received from Containers Direct & would have no reservation in recommending their excellent service in all departments."
