A wide range of shipping containers and portable buildings for sale

Welcome to Containers Direct, the company with the award winning website that allows clients to view online and in detail a wide range of new and used versatile steel containers, portable container cabins and office units, flat pack containers and offices, and portable toilets – all in a wide range of sizes and design. Whatever your shipping, storage or portable accommodation requirements, you’ll find them here!

In 2008 the company became the first nationwide container dealer to introduce e commerce to the retailing of shipping containers and vandal proof site offices. This pioneering approach has seen the company develop and from being a traditional shipping container depot, serving the local market, into one of the UK’s leading and most innovative suppliers of shipping container products.

Shipping Containers

Made from tough corten steel, shipping containers are waterproof, rust proof and built for security, strength and endurance! All our containers for shipping are ISO certified for the export of cargo overseas and possess a CSC plate to this effect. We sell both new and used ISO containers to accommodate all price ranges, and they are available in standard 20ft and 40ft sizes, high cubes (extra tall) and specialist units such as refrigerated and tunnel-tainers.

Storage Containers and Flat Packs

Most steel storage containers are either used or converted shipping containers, providing the same excellent standards of quality and security. Used shipping containers for storage can either be purchased as an original shipping container, or modified for the storage market. They can be cut to any length, so whether you need just 5ft of storage space, or a whole 40ft, we can provide the container. Our 10ft containers are one of biggest sellers. Other modifications include the fitting of easy use storage doors, additional or side doors and repainting. As an alternative to the shipping container, flat pack containers provide are a great low cost option and are ideal as a flexible solution to storage in tight spaces or with difficult access.

Container Conversions

It’s important to us that our clients’ needs match the products we sell them, so we have our own on site workshops to adapt and convert containers. From a simple cut down, door change or repaint, right up to higher end specialist conversions, we have the experience and facilities to take on any project. We can even build them from scratch, to your exact size and design requirements. Take a look at some of recent client conversion projects completed at Containers Direct. From site offices, canteens, classrooms, pop-up shops, kitchens and bars, we can turn your vision into reality.

Site Offices

New and second hand anti vandal site accommodation - whether you need a portable office, a welfare unit or a clubhouse these units are a quality yet cheaper alternative to a traditional building structure. Available ‘off the peg’ or converted to your own interior specifications – so if you need kitchen space, changing rooms or a washroom/ toilet, it’s no problem. Units come in a range of sizes, are insulated for comfort, fully lockable (including steel shuttered windows), and with electrics installed.

By Mr Alan McDonald ,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank both you and your staff at 'Containers Direct' for the service I received from your company. In the first instance, I found it simple and straightforward to arrange the delivery of a container to the shop in Southsea, Wrexham. The prices were clear and with no 'hidden extras' to surprise us after delivery. The container arrived at the appointed time and your staff were extremely helpful and efficient. Even though the actual positioning of the container presented a few difficulties, your team were open to suggestions and utilised their obvious skill and experience to overcome the difficulties. Many people are quick to complain about services they receive but I feel that your company really does deserve praise for the service you provide. Thank you again

By Short Wood Primary School ,

Many thanks for the swift delivery of the 3 x containers. The containers were put together very easily and under 45 mins, much quicker and easier than a wood shed of the same size. The locks are superb and very secure. I would strongly recommend these containers to other schools as alternative storage areas.
