The second-hand containers we supply are guaranteed to be structurally sound, water tight and suitable for use as secure storage containers. They can also be certified as suitable for shipping. All our used containers are inspected by our own depots prior to dispatch. We guarantee the condition of our equipment and if you are dissatisfied in any way we will either refund your money, or pay for any repairs.All our containers have:

  • High tensile anti-corrosion Corten steel construction
  • Double opening doors on one end – fitted with locking bars and locking catches
  • Marine ply floors tested to ISO standards
  • Ventilators for air circulation
  • Anti-theft padlock cowls

Using containers is also an environmentally friendly solution in that they have fulfilled their primary role of carrying cargo, and can then be used again.  Cost effective recycling!
