8FT CONTAINERS SECOND HAND

Small sized containers are always in demand, for storing smaller loads, or using in areas where space is limited. We make this neatly sized container at Containers Direct, by cutting down from used, larger shipping containers. For example, a 20ft shipping container can be divided into an 8ft and a 12ft piece - the basis for two new containers. And a 40ft container can yield five new 8ft containers!

Once the 8ft sections have been cut, we need to make complete the process with either new doors, or a new end wall, or both, depending upon where the cut has been made. Containers Direct specialise in manufacturing new doors for cut down containers, offering a choice of four distinct styles.

Door styles for 8ft containers

S1 doors


These are flat panelled steel doors, are much easier to open and close than standard shipping container doors, as well as being more aesthetically pleasing. Often the preferred choice of schools and clubs, for use as garden sheds, a bike store, or general storage. Take a look at an example of an 8ft S1 container


Price of 8ft container with S1 doors - £950 plus VAT





S2 doors


The original shipping container door is most popular on building sites and has the advantage of retaining the rubber door seals, for complete watertightness. The disadvantage is that you may have to struggle to open and close them, unless you are used to working in manual labour! See our standard 8ft S2 container

Containers Direct offer a unique third option which combines the advantages of both types of door. This door which is both easy to use, secure, and has rubber door seals. See our 8ft S3 container for more product details

8ft wide roller shutter doors with a choice of manual or electric operation. Made from galvanised steel, they are frequently used for container conversions, and can be fitted as an additional door, or a replacement for the original.
