Selecting your shipping container

New shipping containers are normally manufactured from high tensile rust inhibiting corten steel, (see corten steel page, click here.) which increases life span. Having a CSC plate (MoT) they can be used for shipping containers. They come in a wide variety of sizes and types 40’, 20’, 10’ and 8’ x 8’6” standard height, or 9’6”, single or double ended doors. Consolidated Containers Sales have many of these units in stock (see gallery, click here.) in their depots throughout the UK and Ireland, and have over a thousand arriving every month.

Second-hand or Used Containers

The previous use of the shipping container will determine the condition. They should be offered in W/W (wind and watertight) condition, and be structurally sound. Always ask the age and condition of the container. If viewing before purchase, pay particular attention to the roof and doors, known weak areas.

The majority are of standard 8’6” height and much sought after. The 40’s, can also be 9’6” high. A conventional shipping container does not have a lock box or cowl fitted (see security, click here.) Ask your supplier about fitting one, which will considerably improve security. Do not attempt to use a container sold as a Storage Unit for Shipping Purposes as this can be a very expensive mistake.

Always discuss the specific use for your container(s), as practical advice may identify points you have not considered.
