Second Hand 10ft Shipping Containers

Second hand 10ft containers are one our most popular products; especially with schools, clubs and allotments. 10fts do not come as standard so we take a "grade A" 40ft container and slice it up to make smaller containers. We also offer a flat pack option. Because we can fabricate a container to any length our customers are not restricted to 10ft only. Need a 8ft, 12ft, 15ft, 25ft, 30ft, or even 30ft 4inches ? It’s no problem to us! If you want to know a little more have a look at our 10ft container article

Flat Pack Self Assembly Containers

Flat pack containers are quick and easy to assemble, give maximum flexibility AND come with low cost delivery. Flat pack containers can be delivered to even the most awkward locations, without the expense of a heavy lifting vehicle, and their steel construction makes them very secure. They are great for storage, available in three sizes, and a choice of painted or galvanised. Alternatively, we sell flat pack offices for a quick, low cost solution to providing extra site space, and flat pack chemical stores.


As a long established and reputable company, we want to instil confidence in our customers that we can deliver on our promises, and provide high quality products and service. But don't just take our word for it, see for yourself what our past and present clients have to say about Containers Direct.

Oct 10, 2017 "Thanks for all your support getting the order processed and repeatedly trying to get a delivery date for us. You did your best to accommodate our site limitations. In particular to Sonia, always helpful and understanding when I finally returned her calls." From Derby Hockey Club

Sept 25, 2017 "The delivery man made installation look easy despite working round a Fiat 500 which was left in front of the area we roped off for access......after negotiating a residential road with parking both sides and while towing a trailer with a second container. He was also irrepressibly cheerful, despite his long drive, and he did the whole installation single handed in less than an hour.
We're very pleased with the container and would like to thank you for your help and excellent service. One very delighted Club!"
From Portsdown Archery Club.

Shipping Container News - brought to you by Sally Shipp


**UPDATED Yes, there is more to shipping containers than a uniform metal box - especially when it takes on the job of providing storage or accommodation for business use. While cargo doors (the original doors manufactured for all shipping containers) are a necessary requirement for shipping, and indeed meet the needs of the job perfectly, they don’t always provide the best option for other uses the container will frequently go on to.

We now offer five distinct door styles for shipping container products. Read on to demystify the confusion over the number of different door types you will find on containers, what they are for and how to make an informed choice when choosing the right one for you.
