10ft steel storage containers are suitable for a wide range applications, such as storage for schools, allotments, clubs, businesses, construction sites, and conversions. We can even create a 10ft container office. Their neat 10ft length makes them ideal for smaller spaces, or smaller storage loads. The structure of shipping containers offers unrivalled strength and security, and they come with a 12 month watertight guarantee, making them one of our biggest selling containers. Choosing whether to buy a new or a 10ft second hand shipping container can be tricky, so Containers Direct have a dedicated team of sales advisors to help you make the right choice. If you are looking for something bigger then try our used 20ft shipping containers, or if you have the space, even a used 40ft shipping container, as these offer the best value of all in terms of price per square foot.

The Build Process

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