Household items or archived documents

container, and also invest in lining and insulating
your unit. We modify containers in terms of size and internal fit at Containers Direct to ensure they’re suitable for long term, dry, top quality storage. We combine all the benefits of a sturdily built shipping container, with advantages of a conversion. Features include lining and insulating to protect the contents from damage caused by condensation, a protective lock box, and a choice of door types
- rubber sealed heavy duty shipping doors, or lighter flat panelled doors, with or without a rubber seal. For convenient access doors can be placed anywhere along the container body, and you may even want to have two or three fitted.
