  • Description

This is an example of a new 12ft container with easy-opening doors. They have the advantage of being easier to open than original shipping container doors and are particularly popular with schools, allotments & clubs.

Used vs. New
Used Shipping Containers are anywhere from 10-15 years old, and will be ex-shipping lines. This means they will have travelled and been handled in different ports across the world, leading to signs of wear and tear e.g. dents, scrapes, surface rust and patch repairs. These containers are good if you are working on a tight budget, or if aesthetics aren’t as important. However, in order to improve the external appearance, all of our used containers under 20ft all come with a free repaint as standard!

New Shipping Containers have only been used once to transport the shipping container from the country of manufacture to the UK. Although these shipping containers are considered “new” in the shipping industry, they are also referred to as “Once-Used” due to their one transportation journey. As they will have been filled with cargo to get here and handled once in port, minor scrapes and the odd dent may be visible.

Both used and new containers are structurally sound. Any signs of wear and tear are purely cosmetic.

Delivery Information
Delivery of a shipping container is very different to the delivery of a parcel. The delivery vehicles range from 39ft long rigid lorries with hiab cranes, to 65ft long articulated lorries. As you can imagine, they require significant space and suitable site access! For more details, check out our Delivery Options page.
Optional Extras
Often our customers want to further customise their containers based on their specific requirements. We offer a wide range of optional extras designed to enahance all our shipping containers for a variety of different purposes. You can find out more about our range of optional extras here
Planning Permission
One of the most common questions regarding shipping containers is “Do I need planning permission?”. Planning permission requirements can differ depending on your local authority, so we would always recommend double checking with them first if you’re uncertain! However, in our experience, some of our popular optional extras can help in gaining permission such as timber cladding, a sloping roof and even a simple repaint to blend the container into its surroundings.
We’re committed to quality, so all of our shipping containers come with a 12 month watertight guarantee. For more details, check out our Terms and Conditions.
