Containers Direct specialise in producing great value 12ft used shipping containers by taking good quality second hand ISO containers
and adapting them for use as a storage container
. Because shipping containers
are built for withstanding the rigours of shipping and the carrying of heavy loads these metal boxes give unrivalled strength and security, certainly compared to most other storage containers that are available for sale. Shipping containers are made as new to a narrow range of standard sizes, mainly 20ft shipping containers
and 40ft shipping containers
, so to produce a 12 ft unit we cut them down in our workshops. The process of cutting down to smaller units means manufacturing new doors, or a new steel end wall, in order to complete our 12ft used shipping containers. We can also make new 12ft containers
in this way. When we modify these containers it's a great opportunity for us to offer to our clients a unique choice of four distinct door types, each with its own merits. Explore the four standard products below, where you can find more information on which doors would be best for your project.
Some clients prefer to have side door containers
, which we can fit as an alternative to end doors, or as an addition. This is a relatively low cost and simple procedure. A 12ft used shipping container can be converted for purposes other than storage. For instance, a simple personnel door and ply lining can be added to make a small workshop
, or melamine lining and a hatch, or roller shutter, for a pop-up catering business
. We can also install electrics, or add a ramp for easy loading. Our range of modifications to 12 foot containers are carried out by our own skilled, in-house workforce and are offered at prices that reflect our commitment to quality and value. With no contractors or middle-men to pay, when you buy a refurbished steel container from Containers Direct, you get the cheapest deals and the confidence of a 12 month watertight guarantee.
