Our most popular unit, these 20 foot secure storage containers provide roughly the same space of a standard household garage.

Our 20 foot by 8 foot steel containers offer more storage space but are still very manoeuvrable and easy to accommodate on site. One of the industry standard shipping container lengths, they are suitable for a wide range of construction projects and across all industries, from engineering to education.

With over 30 cubic metres of space to fill, these ISO containers can store the contents of an average three bedroom house! Imagine 100 washing machines or 200 full mattresses stacked and you get the idea! Perfect if you are moving house or undergoing a renovation project.

Constructed from corrosion resistant Cor-ten steel they are also painted in non-toxic paint ensuring their durability and longevity without compromising their eco-friendly credentials.

As well as being protected from weather damage, they are also designed to meet high security standards and feature anti-jemmy hinge protectors and Kaba experT reversible key locking systems with ‘KITEMARK’ for Enhanced Security Lock Cylinders to BS EN 1303:2005, manufactured to protect against bumping, picking and drilling.
