10FT CONTAINERS SECOND HAND
This process of conversion enables clients to choose the type of doors most suitable for purpose. From most suppliers the choice will be between original container doors or flat panelled doors. We believe that the level of security offered between the two is very similar. In addition, Containers Direct offer an exclusive option, which combines the best features of both, and the option of a roller shutter door.
Please note cut down containers are not suitable for shipping, stacking or lifting when loaded. They can be modified upon request if these conditions are required. Unless we are told of height restrictions, we may allocate either 8ft6 or 9ft6 depending on which one next comes out of the stow. Please speak to us if you have any particular requirements we should be aware of.
These flat panelled doors are much easier to open and close and are more aesthetically pleasing. They are often the preferred choice of schools, clubs and for use as garden sheds and personal storage. Take a look at our most popular 10ft S1 container
