Why should I choose UK Container Sales?

UK Container Sales provides a friendly, reliable service along with excellent value. Our on-site team have over 125 years experience within the container industry and are always on hand to offer you help and advice. We also provide a wide range of containers for all of your needs.
Are shipping containers expensive to purchase?

For the obvious reasons, used containers are cheaper to purchase than new units. At UK Container Sales we can give you the most competitive prices for both new and used containers.
How durable are the storage containers?

A new container purchased from UK Container Sales with maintenance once every ten years should last upwards of 50 years. This time, the scale would obviously vary on used storage containers, but any unit purchased from us would have many years of storage life, due to the top quality build of each unit.
How secure are shipping containers?

The units supplied by UK Container Sales are built to a very high specification. The steel structure makes the storage containers waterproof, vermin proof and vandal proof. The most vulnerable part of a steel storage container is the doors, and for added security UK Container Sales recommend a steel lockbox to be fitted to the container doors.
Can you do conversions from shipping containers?

We have very experienced engineers who carry out conversions of shipping containers. They can convert a unit for extra office space, on-site washrooms and lavatories. Conversions to onsite kitchens and cooking facilities, even living space.
What size container would you recommend for my needs?

UK Container Sales has a broad range of different sized containers from 6ft to 40ft. Below are sizes and a guide as to how much can be stored in a unit if storage is the purpose of the shipping container.

8ft (2.3m) 9.95m³ Contents of a 1 bedroom property

10ft (3.0m) 15.9m³ Contents of a 1-2 bedroom property

20ft (6.1m) 33.2m³ Contents of a 3 bedroom property

40ft (12.2m) 67.6m³ Contents of a 5+ bedroom property
How is the shipping container transported to my site?

UK Container Sales will deliver the container, of your choice, direct to the site of your choice. We can transport our containers to virtually anywhere in the UK and assist with all other logistical requirements.
Do I need to take up any particular site preparation for the delivery of my shipping container?

The only requirement is that the area where the shipping container is to be positioned is level and firm, as the main problem with uneven surfaces is the opening and closing of the units doors. Sleepers or paving slabs can help to level up the container, and although it is the responsibility of the purchaser to make sure these requirements are met, our drivers will help with positioning the container where ever possible.
How do I maintain my shipping container?

Steel shipping containers are very robust and require little or no maintenance. They a
