New & used shipping containers for sale or hire

Our shipping containers are robust, watertight and windtight, providing safe and secure storage or for use as workshops, accommodation, changing rooms and even in the construction of buildings as an alternative to traditional materials. Our steel containers are for sale or hire in a wide range of sizes, colours and configurations at short notice.

We stock shipping containers across our sites throughout Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Gloucestershire and South Wales.

New shipping containers

Our new shipping containers for sale are manufactured using high quality Corten 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.

  • Store goods securely and safe from adverse weather conditions
  • Moisture treatments available to prevent condensation and corrosion of goods
  • New and used shipping containers available in a variety of sizes and colours
  • 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.

  • 10ft shipping containers in standard and high cube
  • 20ft shipping containers in standard, high cube, tunnel, side and tri door
