Our new 16ft shipping containers for sale are manufactured from original 40ft shipping containers
, by taking these larger containers and cutting them down to the required size. They can be cut to any size, in our own workshops, to produce smaller great quality storage containers. Our 16 ft containers, along with the 10ft, are one of our most requested sizes of cut down containers
. Once cut down and adapted for storage, new 16ft shipping containers no longer conform to shipping standards, but they do make the best storage containers on the market. Genuine shipping containers are chosen to make new storage units as they cannot be beaten in terms of strength, security and durability. Made from strong COR-TEN steel
, which has rust repellent properties, and with heavy-weight bearing floors, they will give you years of secure, watertight storage at a cost that won't break the bank. We offer the 16ft with a unique choice of four standard door types
, each designed for the needs of different groups of users and applications.
We use either new or used steel ISO containers to cut down from, according to our customers' choice. A new 16 foot will be in better condition than its 16ft second hand container
counterpart, and will last longer, but used quality storage containers
represent great value for money and we guarantee they are watertight and structurally sound. Whether you choose new 16ft shipping containers or used, they can be refurbished with a range of optional extras, a choice of four door types (or doors in the side
), or we can convert them for a wide range of applications, including offices, and portable metal toilets. Notable for our experience in high quality conversion work, we can modify any container to match our customers' requirements, carrying out standard modifications such as ply lining, right through to full-scale high end conversions. When you buy from Containers Direct you get the container you need at prices that reflect both value and quality.
