40FT SHIPPING CONTAINER
The 40ft storage containerTo illustrate, this 40ft shipping container is for sale as a storage container. Due to its age and condition it no longer passes the rigorous standards required by the ISO that enables it to go to sea and be stacked up along with other ISO passed containers. But as a unit for storage it is perfect for the job!
The 40ft ISO containerIf you are looking for a 40ft shipping container for overseas journeys, they are still a number of good quality second-hand ISO containers on the market, many which have only been used a handful of times. These 40fts stored in our Birmingham supply depot, are suitable for either shipping or storage.
Containers Direct low cost overseas removalsIf you are planning to use your 40ft shipping container for sending household goods abroad Containers Direct offer a low cost home removals service, whereby the container is delivered to your house for loading, and then taken directly to the port. For more information on this service, visit our Overseas Removals webpage.
Need extra width or height?You may see some of our 40ft shipping container stock described as pallet wide, or extra wide. Most shipping containers are made with a standard width of 8ft, but our pallet wide containers give you a few extra inches of internal width to make loading easier, as they can accommodate two pallets side by side.
For an extra foot of height - 9ft 6in as opposed to the standard container heights of 8ft 6in, choose a high cube container. These are especially handy for voluminous lighter cargoes, or oversized items for storage, such as plant machinery.
TestimonialBroomheath Plantation Bushcraft Academy ordered a used 40ft container from us, repainted green (of course!).
"How easy was that? Phone conversations were quick and to the point and email conversation was appropriate. Nothing was made harder than it needed to be but we felt that if we had expanded our requirements the level of communication would have expanded appropriately too. Our go to company for containers and container based buildings in our woodlands"
