Some of our team have been involved in the shipping container industry for over 25 years, so we know a thing or two about steel boxes! That is why we want to understand your requirements when deciding to purchase/ hire a container. We can then ensure the best type of container is selected for the job. We manufacture our own ‘new build’ shipping containers at our facility in China, providing our customers with containers of the highest build quality (ISO) and best possible price. We pride ourselves in our customer service. We aim to provide you with a seamless experience when purchasing your container, from the initial enquiry right up to the delivery of your container.
