8ft is the standard width for a shipping container so what options do you have if you want to retain the strength, security and cost benefits of containerised storage and the space available to site your containers is less than 8ft wide?
Containers Direct have met this gap in the market by designing and building the SlimLine range of shipping containers. From 40ft long down to 5ft long with widths available from 4ft to 7ft the SlimLine offers an off the shelf answer to storage requirements where an 8ft width container just won’t fit!
A stand out feature of the SlimLine is that the doors can be fitted in the side to a place of your choosing at no extra cost. The ability to choose any length, any width and any door position, along with whole host of available optional extras makes the SlimLine range the most flexible and cost effective small container available in the UK today. The SLM5 range, which offers a length up to 40ft and a 5ft width is the best seller in the SlimLine range and a selection of these are held in stock for quick dispatch.
The SlimLine is offered with three door types:
These flat panelled doors are designed to be easy to use and with their smooth finish aesthetically pleasing. They are often the preferred choice of schools, clubs and for use as garden sheds and personal storage. The price of the SlimLine includes the S1 door type across the whole range. These doors can also be fitted in the side upon request - £POA.
The S3 offers an upgrade to includes external rubber doors seals, the type that are used on original shipping containers along with an extra locking arm. The seals ensure 100% water tightness in even the most adverse weather conditions.
The supplement for the S3 door is £175 plus VAT
The S4 features roller shutter doors with a choice of manual or electric operation.
The supplement for the S4 - £650 plus VAT
The SlimLine comes with all the options that you would expect from Containers Direct. For a comprehensive list see our page Customising Your Container.

SlimLine containers also lend themselves well for chemical storage where loads may be small, space tight, but adhering to Health and Safety regulations is essential.
Bigger, smaller, flatter! Considering other options
Flat pack stores come in three sizes, meaning you can go smaller and lighter than standard shipping containers.
Standard 8ft wide shipping containers can be cut to any length, meaning you have plenty of options for a smaller container.
10ft wide containers are newly built at Containers Direct, in the same way as SlimLines, except with extra width instead of less.
