New one way shipped containers Versus Used Shipping Containers

New ‘One trip’ Shipping Containers

  • Almost all new manufacturing of shipping containers is currently done in the far east, therefore all containers sold or hired in Europe have been one way shipped from the far east, hence the terminology one way shipped.
  • Most new shipping containers have a life expectancy of around 25 years.
  • Multi vented to reduce the chance of condensation.
  • Ease of door opening and guarantee of many years of maintenance free storage solutions.
  • Guaranteed colour options of blue or green, albeit larger numbers can be sourced specifically for individual customers colour/RAL code choice.
  • Free of charge already factory fitted latest slim line lock box facility as a standard feature enabling the best security possible for your storage container.
  • All new one way shipped containers have carried one cargo from the manufacturing point in the Far East to our UK depots, hence there will be potentially scratches and an odd dent etc, this is industry standard.

Used Shipping Containers

  • Used shipping containers normally come in the original shipping line colours or livery and have been shipped globally up until the point of sale.
  • They are sold next off the stack and come in a variety of colours, we do not guarantee any colour choice whatsoever.
  • They will have dents and rust patches and are normally aged between 9 and 15 years – industry standard.
  • Container life expectancy is approx. 25 years, therefore used containers are considered mid-life containers.
  • Used containers are guaranteed wind and watertight for 12 months from date of delivery, assuming you use/utilize in an appropriate manner, ie. nothing to be placed on the roof.
  • Doors may be stiff especially the left hand door which is due to less openings in global transportation, wd40 or similar is advised as routine maintenance.
  • Lock box facility is an optional extra – industry standard.
  • Less ventilation as new one way shipped.
