20ft containers are available as new (once shipped), or in a variety of used standards and conditions. Their steel structure, marine ply floors and heavy duty cargo doors make them suitable for a wide range of applications.

The container industry describes a new 20ft container as a steel unit which has been loaded with cargo at its place of manufacture, transported to the UK and then sold to the domestic market. A used 20ft container is a unit that following its journey as a new container has been used several more times for storage of goods in the domestic market. These containers conform with the 8ft width and 8ft 6ins height of standard containers, they are also available as accommodation units, tunnel containers (double ended) and high cube units providing 9ft 6ins of height. A number of other specialised 20ft containers are available, ask us for more details.
