New & Used Shipping & Storage Containers for Sale

There is no doubt that you are already aware of the benefits of buying a shipping container, you may have decided on the size you need and possibly even where it’ll be positioned, but....... there is more to this than just purchasing a container off the internet?

So, what are the key factors that you should consider when buying? We explore a few of these questions below and would love to chat should you have any further questions.

Purchase your shipping container through ST Containers in the knowledge that your delivery will be hassle free and expertly carried out by our parent company Sussex Transport, a leading, and expert provider of container transport and logistics services.

What will you be storing in the container?

One container is not the same as another container – they all have different ages and could have been used for a plethora of different purposes. Think about what you are using the container for. For many, it will be simple storage of items, whether it be domestic or commercial. However, if you are using it especially for a food-based industry then you need to ensure that the container has been classified as ‘food standard’ before purchasing. If you're looking for inspiration on how to use a container, take a look at some of our suggestions.

How old is the container?

We always say that the newer a container, the better. There is less risk of rusting or structural deficiencies, especially if the container has been used for shipping for a large portion of its life. It may be slightly more costly, but a one trip (or nearly new) 10 year old container will provide you with greater storage life and security than a 210 year old container.

How do I get the container to where it needs to be?

This is one of the key concerns we have found; the costs of moving the container can be high, especially if the company does not have their own transport arm or methods of transferring the container. 

Thankfully, at ST Containers we have a transport fleet we can call on to ensure that your container will not only get to where you want it, but using a system called what3words, we can ensure it can go exactly where you want it. Not only that, but we have the experience to move anything, anywhere – no job is too complicated for our experienced and knowledgeable team.

Who should I buy the container from?

Quite simply, go for reputation. Ensure that the company you purchase from has a solid reputation for providing good-quality containers. You want to ensure that, like anything, you are getting good value for your money and the company you purchase from are able to deliver on their promises…and deliver the container ideally too.

Research reputable companies…or just come to us– we have the pedigree and experience to be able to not only match but exceed your expectations!

We needed a container to house our possessions during a large extension on our property and the team at ST Containers helped us work out which size to go for and also allay any fears about damp / mould as the container is fully vented and feels brand new.
