Extra Wide Shipping Containers

Looking for a shipping container wider than 8ft? Welcome to Containers Direct, home of the New Build Container

We are one of the only UK manufacturers of the new build and wide shipping container offering single bespoke builds to order. Many of our competitors require bulk orders for special build containers, including wide shipping containers, so if you require a "one-off" you've come to the right place! With a large, onsite workshops and a highly skilled workforce, we have been manufacturing extra wide containers to bespoke sizes and specifications since we opened our fabrication depot in 2008 using quality materials and methods to ensure a strong, secure and functional container that will stand the test of time. This includes:

16 gauge corrugated steel panels

3mm thick steel doors with steel locking arm

Steel floor chassis overlaid with plywood

What is the widest container available?

We build new containers to widths from 9ft up to 12ft. Any wider and delivery becomes difficult! However, if more width is required, we can build from scratch new shipping containers designed to link together to form larger spaces.

We can also modify both new and used 20ft shipping containers and 40ft shipping containers, to create spaces as wide as 16ft, 24ft, or even 32ft. We do this by joining up shipping containers; simple to deliver and designed to easily fit together on your site. If you require any other lengths we can accommodate those too, including small sizes such as the popular 10ft shipping container. We always hold in stock standard 20ft by 10ft wide storage containers for quick dispatch, and we build to order extra wide containers for a whole range of applications, including container offices and shipping container classrooms.

Don't just take our word for it! Read what our customers have had to say:

From TONE Scaffolding, who purchased a 15ft x 10ft new build container, with roller shutters on each end:

"Very helpful and product was exactly what was expected."

From Heather Dixon:

"Just to let you know the container has arrived and we are delighted with it. The haulier was excellent, it was not easy access for him but he did a fantastic job without complaint. Overall it's been a fantastic service from you all from start to finish and a great product."

From Naomi - Leeds Bike Mill

"The best price I could find for a non-standard size container. Especially as it includes repainting - great range of colour choices. I was concerned about ordering from far away (local companies are able to do a site survey) but was able to communicate by email about the site to reassure us. The delivery company was also excellent and placed the container perfectly despite the site being a bit tricky."Read all testimonials here!
