15FT CONTAINERS SECOND HAND
One of the benefits of cutting down a used shipping container is that it allows the customer a choice of door types. If you can imagine, once we cut up a 40ft into two 15fts and a 10ft container we are left with only one set of original doors, and one end wall. To complete the other sections of the container we fabricate our own doors, and a new wall, where appropriate. To this end we have developed three types of storage container, each with a different style of 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.
CHOOSE YOUR DOOR TYPE
S1 ContainersThe S1 container is fabricated in such a way that it is easier to use than the original shipping container door; it is lighter in construction and has one locking arm. It is designed, however, to ensure that security is not compromised. The S1 door is popular with schools, clubs and for personal storage.
Price of container with S1 doors - £1450 plus VAT
S2 ContainersThe S2 container is the original shipping container door and is commonplace on building sites. It has the advantage of rubber door seals.
Price of container with S2 doors - £1450 plus VAT
S3 ContainersThe S3 container is unique to Containers Direct. The door is constructed in the same way as the S1 but rubber door seals are attached which prevents any water ingress. This option is worth considering for archive and furniture storage in an environment where users would find heavyweight shipping container doors awkward to operate.
Price of container with S3 doors - £1625 plus VAT
S4 ContainersGalvanised steel, padlockable on both ends, 8ft wide roller shutter doors make a great alternative, or addition, to standard storage doors. They come in either manual or electrical options.
Price of container with manual Roller Shutter door - £1950 plus VAT
(Please enquire for cost of electric option)
Other door types
Personnel doors and side doorsChoose a steel security door for pedestrian use, incorporating multi deadlocks and offering high levels of security. Cost per door £565
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.

We include in the price exterior repainting to your choice of colour in rubberised container paint. Not only does this significantly improve the cosmetic appearance of the unit but the extra layer of protection will extend the useful life of the container.
Please note, for very light or bright paint options (ie white, yellow, red, orange) there is a charge of £100
LockboxAll of our 15ft shipping containers come complete with a lockbox underneath which you can attach a padlock. The lockbox (usual retail price £55) protects the padlock from tampering and provides a very high level of security.

TESTIMONIALSWe supplied a 15ft container with S3 doors, to be used as a classroom in a forest! Our client was very happy with our product and service, and has asked us to supply another one.
"Thanks for the delivery of the Container, it is making a great classroom for our forest school! Can we order another please? We could do with a 15ft S3 container in green, to go alongside the one that you delivered, to use as a tool store.
