Container Sales & Hire

New and used steel shipping containers for sale or hire to domestic and commercial users, for use as self-storage containers, conversions and export shipping.

The majority of the new shipping containers are built in China, containers are built for shipping purposes. This means that they will be clean, dry, watertight and secure.

The shipping lines and leasing companies use new shipping containers for shipping for around 10-15 years and then they sell them off as a used (second hand) shipping container for one more shipment or for static storage.

In the factory we ask to have a lock box or cowls fitted to the double doors for extra security. With the lock box you will need a padlock that fits inside, we can supply a high grade padlock. The Shipping lines or Leasing companies don't actually need this, as they fit seals to the double doors to avoiding someone tampering with the cargo.

Self-storage companies particularly like the new (once used) containers as their customers prefer the cleanliness and the look of them.

With all of the above taken into account, "New does not mean New", we also refer to them as 'Once used' or a 'One way shipper'.

So what you need to look out for is a New,once used or one way shipper container:

The new shipping containers are transported from China, and handled by loaders and unloaders, docks/ports, ships, trains and roads before they reach your site.

So here is what you should look out for on a new shipping container:

  • There will/may be some minor dents and minor scratches.
  • There will/may be some floor markings.
  • They should be structurally sound, watertight and look tidy
  • Transport costs
  • Accessory costs

We check all containers prior to leaving our yard, to ensure we meet our customers requirements.
