20FT NEW SHIPPING CONTAINERS
Definition of a new shipping containerAs all cargo containers are manufactured outside the UK, a new shipping container is defined by the container industry as new if it has had no more than a single journey for delivery to the destination of sale. New containers are often referred to as 'one trip containers', as they are loaded with cargo for the initial voyage, as this makes economical sense and keeps costs down. Therefore some evidence of handling may be present, but the container should remain completely structurally sound.

TestimonialRed Tree Building Contractors ordered a new 20ft shipping container with door seals and locking levers, for their contract with Wythenshawe Hospital. The container was lined, insulated and repainted, electrics installed, and we delivered and positioned the container directly to the hospital site.
Thomas Eccles from Red Tree had this to say:
"Thanks! It was a more complicated off load than dropping it on the side of the road. The driver did a good job and the hospital were happy, so all good."
