New Shipping Containers

New containers are also referred to as new (once shipped), or one trip containers. If aesthetics are of primary importance and you are storing goods that require a clean, neat and tidy environment, this is the best type you can purchase. They are more expensive than used containers but their lifespan is significantly longer and the cost difference is relatively minor. These containers usually come with a high security lockbox as standard, to improve security and protect your padlock. They come with either marine ply or bamboo floors as standard and usually have four small vents for air circulation. New containers will always be structurally sound and weather proof, and they have been used on one occasion to ship goods into the UK by cargo vessel. These container types are usually suitable for shipping. 

Used (A Grade) Shipping Containers

All of our used a grade containers are good quality, wind and water tight and perfect for domestic storage. If aesthetics are not of primary concern, these containers are ideal, they also present a more cost effective alternative to new containers. Used containers do not normally come complete with a high security lockbox as standard, however, one can be fitted for a nominal fee. These containers are always weather proof and structurally sound, and they can be upgraded in order to be suitable for shipping if required. They usually have marine ply or bamboo flooring as standard with four vents for air circulation.
