Why buy a shipping container from Cleveland Containers?

We are committed to offering excellent quality containers to suit all budgets here at Cleveland Containers, so whether it be a new or used shipping container that you are looking for, we can cater for your needs.

We offer a comprehensive range of containers, available in all our 16 depots across the UK. Sizes include 6ft-8ft, 10ft, 20ft, 30ft, 40ft & 45ft – the majority of which are available as new or used. In addition to selling containers in their basic form, we also offer a superb conversion service; our team can design and create any bespoke container you require, ranging from homes to offices and everything in between.

New Containers

Our new shipping containers are designed and manufactured in China, then loaded and shipped to the UK.

We aim to be the one-stop shop for your entire shipping container UK based requirements. We offer a wide variety of tailor-made services to cater for individual customers’ needs, and work with all sizes of companies, from one-off sales to individuals through to order fulfillment for major shipping lines.

Our highly-skilled staff have handled major container refurbishment programmes on behalf of several global box operators.

Used Containers

Used shipping containers can be a great way to meet your storage needs with a lower budget. Second hand containers are generally older containers sold off from the shipping lines to make way for new stock. These vary in age and condition and depending on those variables, differ in price. Old containers can be a very astute option, financially.

If you need more than one shipping container, we offer discount pricing on multiple purchases.
