Shipping Containers


Shipping container sizes

We provide shipping containers in range of shapes and sizes to suit your needs. Choose from ten different lengths, from 6ft to 45ft, depending on your requirements. Some of our most popular lengths are the 20ft and 40ft containers, but we’ll be happy to advise on which is best for you.

The standard height of a shipping container is 8ft 6ins (2.59m), but again this can vary depending on the particular style of container you’re after.

Our shipping container prices

It’s not a case of ‘one-size-fits-all’ when it comes to pricing up our containers. Pricing can depend on the size and style of the container you choose, as well as your delivery location and any special requirements in terms of offloading or modification.

Shipping container delivery information

We use crane-fitted hiab lorries for the delivery and collection of most of our containers. Our skilled heavy lifting personnel are able to offload at your site, up to 18ft from the side of the lorry. Throughout the installation process, we aim to cause minimal disruption, so you can get on with enjoying your container as quickly as possible.

We agree all of our shipping container deliveries in advance, and we’ll work closely with you to arrange an appropriate date and time that works for everyone involved.

What’s the difference between shipping containers and storage containers?

Many people wonder whether shipping and storage containers are the same thing. The answer is that for the most part, they’re interchangeable - shipping containers can be (and are frequently) used for storage, and storage containers can take on many of the attributes and uses of a shipping container. The one difference is in their transportation.

The material that shipping containers are made of is highly resistant to corrosion, making them ideal for being out at sea. Storage containers are much more lightweight in comparison, and wouldn’t be suitable for moving goods.

Shipping container conversions

Shipping containers are gaining in popularity largely due to their conversion opportunities. No longer just used for storage, they can be transformed in incredibly creative ways to meet the needs of any project or concept.

Just some of the uses for converted shipping containers include:

  • Home office
  • Music studio
  • Pop-up bar/restaurant
  • Summer house
  • Gym
  • Brewery

We’ve provided many new and used shipping containers for conversion purposes, and we’re always open to brand new ideas from our customers. However crazy it might be, we love a challenge - so get in touch and let’s see what we can do!
