New shipping containers

All our new shipping containers are manufactured to exacting industry standards making them an ideal solution where security and safety are required with multiple lashing points and lock boxes as standard on new units.

Our new shipping containers are manufactured using high quality Corton steel which is corrosion resistant and painted using a high quality shipping approved paint, designed to stand up to the most extreme rigours of sea conditions. Our new build shipping containers have a life-span under normal European weather conditions of at least 30 years.

Why buy new shipping containers?

As well as meeting your transportation needs our shipping containers are perfect for commercial and domestic storage. Wind and watertight with high quality door seals and a heavy duty marine ply floor our shipping containers are a great long-term investment that will protect your contents for years to come.

All our new shipping containers are imported and sold with all HMRC duties fully paid.

Used shipping containers

Painting and servicing can prolong the life of a used shipping container. Like everything, if you periodically service your shipping container by checking door seals, inspecting moving parts and retouching areas of corrosion, it will last for many years.
