Shipping Containers for Hire

If you need to tackle a storage problem but don’t want to purchase a container, shipping container hire could be the option for you.


Container sizes available


Here at Cleveland Containers we have a large stock of containers for hire, with all sizes from 6ft to 45ft available. Most of the high-quality shipping containers we use for transporting and storing goods must follow rigid ISO and CSC standards, which makes them versatile for a wide range of applications and usages.  

Our containers make great storage vessels, due to their innate properties (having originally been built to carry cargo around the world on container ships). They are manufactured to be secure, strong and wind- and water-tight, making them ideal portable storage solutions, with the added security provided by a fitted lockbox and security padlock. 

A 40ft or 45 ft container is a storage unit perfect for storing larger equipment, machinery, sports equipment or construction equipment, as it measures up to roughly the volume of a two-car garage.

We can deliver your hire container to the location of your choice, using a specialist HIAB vehicle, (subject to vehicular access).

For further information on stock in each of our depots, please contact a member of the sales team on 0300 005 5111 or sales@clevelandcontainers.co.uk
