12FT CONTAINERS SECOND HAND
The process of cutting down smaller units means either new doors or a new end wall has to be made to complete the new 12ft containers. This is a great opportunity for Containers Direct to offer our clients a choice of three different door types, each with its own merits. The choice is yours!
SELECT A DOOR
We fabricate brand new doors to complete the containers that are light and easy to use. Made from flat steel panels, these are more user friendly than original shipping containers doors, which are corrugated and therefore heavier to handle. Flat panel doors are great for smaller storage containers and frequent use, and are a popular choice for domestic storage, schools and small clubs. The doors are secured by a single lockable arm, which can be protected by a special lockbox for additional security.
S1 Containers Cost £1195 plus VAT
These retain the original shipping containers doors and are the preferred choice for storage in the construction industry. Shipping container doors have the advantage of a rubber seal around them to prevent moisture entering the container.
S2 Containers Cost £1195 plus VAT
A unique design to Containers Direct, whereby we fabricate new doors, as with the S1 container, but with rubber seals too. These doors are great for storing items easily damaged by moisture, such as furniture, fabrics and paper goods.
S3 Containers Cost £1370 plus VAT
S4 doorsAnti vandal, galvanised steel roller shutter doors, with manual or electrical operation. At 8ft wide (the same size as standard container doors, they be fitted as an additional door, or a replacement for the original.
S4 Containers Cost for manual option- £1665 plus VAT
(Please enquire for cost of electric option)
If you'd like doors in the side of the container, we also have options available. You can have a side door in addition to the existing end door, or as a replacement.
FREE REPAINTING AND LOCKBOXIncluded in the price of all 12ft containers is repainting in rubberised container paint, in the colour of your choice for an attractive AND protective finish, and a protective steel lockbox for your padlock (retail price £50)
Please note, for very light or bright paint options (ie white, yellow, red, orange) there is a supplementary charge of £100
PadlockAdd one of our specialist Lock 2000 padlocks, compatible for use with the lock box, for a discounted price of £35 plus VAT
