Used Containers

Used shipping containers have many uses and come in many varieties within the UK. The main use of used containers within the UK is for secure storage. These containers are perfect for this for as they are secure, dry and easy to transport or relocate. They are also readily available and very affordable when compared with building a permanent structure.

Used containers within the UK are generally ex shipping line units. They are still in cargoworthy condition, which means they are in good condition and could still be used for shipping. This makes them perfect for sites where budget constraints or the location does not warrant the use of a new unit. Although not as aesthetically pleasing as new units they are still good solid containers that will keep your goods dry and secure for many years to come.
