Used Shipping Containers for Sale UK

Used shipping containers are an affordable, environmentally-friendly storage solution. Second-hand boxes leave less room for customisation and may have some aesthetic imperfections. But we don’t compromise on quality.

Every single used shipping container we sell is rigorously inspected. And Secure Stores Nationwide guarantee that all our second-hand containers are structurally sound, watertight and suitable for storage.

Your second-hand container will be around 10-15 years young. It will have fulfilled its use transporting international cargos. We are able to source used containers in a range of sizes and colours. But reddish-brown 20ft and 40ft units are most common.

If you intend to use your second-hand container for international shipping, it will need to be CSC plated. This is something we are more than happy to arrange on request.

Delivering your container

We have a network of depots across England, Scotland and Wales in cities including London, Bristol, Birmingham and Glasgow. Delivery fees are postcode dependent.

The average shipping container weighs in at between 1 and 4 tonnes depending on size. So our teams of experienced hauliers will deliver your container using a vehicle with a HIAB loader crane.
