ISO steel shipping containers are not manufactured from new in a 16 ft length, as odd sizes are not compatible with the intermodal systems designed to transport sea containers. However, as shipping containers also make excellent quality storage containers offering strength and security, Containers Direct see no reason why these should be restricted to 20ft containers
and 40ft containers
, which are standard sizes. We set up our own container conversion
workshops to modify containers to make superb storage units for sale, with 16ft used shipping containers being a popular size, particularly with schools, clubs and for personal, domestic storage. When you buy 16ft used shipping containers you not only get value for money, as the cost of second hand
is cheaper than new 16ft containers
, but a guarantee from Containers Direct that your metal unit will be strong, secure and watertight. We also give you the cheapest delivery rates available, direct from our nearest depot to your location. The 16ft comes with our industry leading choice of four doors types
, the S1 is very popular with schools and clubs were frequent use is required as we build them to be easy to operate for mixed users.
What else are 16ft used shipping containers good for? Not just for storage! They are very easy to convert
for so many different uses and applications with either a few basic procedures like condensation prevention and electrics, or high end features such as patio doors and air conditioning. We make everything from offices to workshops, catering units to chemical stores. Or containers can simply be refurbished with features such as doors in the side
, a roller shutter and a ramp to give you a luxury end storage unit. All modifications are carried out in our own site workshops, giving quality workmanship at affordable prices.
