They are great for storage, available in three sizes, and a choice of painted or galvanised.

Container Case Study of the Month

This bespoke container conversion provided a unique workshop on a building site. With a special requirement of being capable of lifting heavy items up to 500kg in and out of the container, we needed to fit a heavy duty beam. Fitted with a range of our optional extras, plus a few unusual extras, such a steel workbench with vice, and steel lining inside, we ensured this container was fit for purpose. Find out more about the workshop on our case study page.


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.

**UPDATED Are you planning to handle your storage container using a fork lift? In that case you’ll need to choose a container that has fork pockets. While most 20ft shipping containers come with these as standard nowadays, and it’s not uncommon to find them on 40fts too, smaller sized containers are not generally manufactured with fork pockets.

The good news is that Containers Direct can now supply all our containers for sale with fork pockets, upon request.
