20FT SG SHIPPING CONTAINERS
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.
WHAT IS A SG CONTAINER?Our SG shipping containers (the SG stands for storage grade!) are ISO shipping containers that are no longer deemed suitable for the rigours of international shipping. However, as they are former shipping standard containers they have the advantage of being strongly built from corten steel with heavy duty solid door and thick weight bearing floors.
What type of storage are SG shipping containers recommended for?
- Plant machinery
- Building Materials
- Packaged Commercial Stock
We would describe the appearance as reasonable with some surface rust, paint failure and minor denting. If a good cosmetic appearance is important you may consider having the container re-sprayed to your choice of colour or opting for a higher grade of container.
CHOOSE FROM THREE DOOR STYLESOur SG containers come with a choice of doors

We can add a compressed door seal to S1 containers for a cost of £65 plus VAT
