WHAT SIZE CONTAINER IS THE BEST VALUE FOR MONEY?

We are asked regularly for a price of the smallest container we supply, as most people will assume less steel, less container, less money! But oddly, this isn’t the case.

20ft and 40ft long shipping containers in used condition, are the most common size of shipping container in the UK market. Shipping Containers are built to perform like Lego blocks, making them easy to transport and stack so, by retaining these sizes, it allows them to be handled and moved by a variety of different methods on the road, rail and at sea.

In terms of used equipment, there is only around £200 difference in the cost of a 20ft and 40ft container so if you are thinking of getting a pair of 20ft containers, or a couple of smaller units, be sure to ask us what would be the most cost effective method of getting the same amount of storage space on site!
