Optional Extras

Here at Boxtor, we understand that you might want to carry out a few extra modifications to your shipping container. Our depots have numerous facilities and services including repainting, repairs, grafo treatment application, lockbox welding and CSC plating of your container.


Our new containers come in either dark blue or dark “olive” green for our general purpose (standard type), high cube, open top and open sided shipping containers, and white for reefer units, however they can be repainted upon request to a RAL colour of your choosing for an additional charge at one of our depots. Let us know if you need your container painted in a certain RAL colour and we will do our best to make it happen!

Anti-Condensation Poles - Absorpole®

These poles can be purchased to reduce condensation inside the container. The strips consist of a moisture absorbent material inside a sturdy plastic holder which is suspended on the inside walls of the container.
Enquire today if you require single or multiple poles for your shipping container.

CSC Plating

CSC Plating optional extra

All our new (1 trip) containers already come with a valid CSC certification. This means the container has passed all relevant safety certifications and is therefore suitable for export shipping.

If you are buying a used container, this may well require an update to its CSC certification if you are using it for the purposes of shipping. We can happily update the CSC plate at one of our depots. Please make us aware if this is a requirement of yours.

  • CSC plating can be updated at our Depot
  • Validates your container for export shipping for 12 months +
  • All our new containers are already CSC plated


For an additional charge, the interior roof of a new container can be coated using a substance called ‘Grafo’, which reduces the effects of condensation inside the container. This can either be done prior to shipping the unit to you, or we arrange for one of our contractors to facilitate it at a location of your choice.

  • Up to 2mm coating applied to roof panels
  • Anti-flammable and non toxic solution
  • Light colour therefore matches the interior of container
  • Grafo applied at our depots.
  • POA

Padlock security cowl (Lockbox)

Steel General Purpose standard shipping containers provide a very economical and effective solution to potential problems of theft and vandalism.

All our new (1 trip) containers come fitted with security cowls (lockboxes) as standard. If you are purchasing a used container and require a lockbox to be fitted, please let us know.

Lockboxes help prevent potential break ins due to the steel cowl shielding the padlock from the likes of heavy duty bolt cutters or angle grinders. We can also supply and deliver heavy duty ‘Cesar’ locks for an additional fee to supply for your container doors.

Ensure your container is secure by fitting a lockbox to it.
