20ft Shipping Containers

When you are looking to purchase or rent a 20ft container, you can choose
between a NEW (1 trip) container, or a USED (wind and
watertight) container.

NEW (1 trip) 20' standard shipping container

New 20ft shipping containers are the most common size/ type of container we supply to the UK market. A fantastic option for self-storage operators and those who need a bit of extra storage capacity on site. New 20ft containers offer secure, lockable, weatherproof storage at an affordable price. Built at the factory in China and shipped ‘one way’ to the UK, our new containers are manufactured to the highest ISO standards and have the following industry leading specification:

NEW (1 TRIP) 20 FT RAL 6007 DARK GREEN

NEW 20ft shipping container features

up to 18 air vents

SLIMLINE LOCKBOX FITTED

coated hardwood flooring (easy to clean)

dark green & dark blue paint colour

3 LOCKING BAR “EASY OPEN” DOORS WITH waist heigh rubber handle

NEW (1 TRIP) 20FT RAL 5013 DARK BLUE

USED 20 ft shipping containers

Used shipping containers offer good value for money. Most of our 20′ standard containers will be between 10 and 15 years old. Having spent much of their life being used for international shipping, they will be structurally sound and graded as “wind and watertight” condition. They will show clear signs of heavy usage, as they are a shipping container after all! This will include dents, imperfections and fading paintwork.

Which option do I go for?

You have two options when choosing a 20 ft container. You either go for a NEW (1 trip) unit built at the container factory in China. This gives you a lifetime of usage as this container has
just been manufactured. 14 air vents offer maximum air flow, which helps prevent any condensation build up inside the unit. “Easy open doors” are great for those using the containers frequently, such as self-storage sites. A lockbox comes fitted as standard on all our new containers meaning the container is secure from vandals. With new (1 trip) shipping containers, you pay for what you get!

The other option is you go for a USED container. This offers good value for money if you are looking for simple, secure, wind and watertight storage options at your site. If appearance is not of importance to you, let us know and we might be able to supply you with a cheaper container.

*If ordering new containers in bulk, you can choose your own paint colour/ container spec etc. Speak to our team to find out more.
