Shipping container already almost at an all-time high and are set to rise throughout 2017
For Immediate release
Press Topic: Shipping container prices rising dramatically
Name: Eva Arden Phone: 01708 558 999
Shipping container prices are reaching an all time high as various industry factors are causing a spike in international prices.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the price of new & used container is set to dramatically increase . This is due to many factors such as the increase in steel rates, new paint regulations, which has caused our factories to shut down to adhere to latest specification etc.
There is also a global shortage of containers due to high demand plus the dollar had against the pound. Therefore we can only advise our customers that price increases are unavoidable and beyond our control. Our quoted prices are valid for 7 days or whilst current stock last.
You can see more about the new painting regulations from an article from the Container Owners Association here: http://www.containerownersassociation.org/index.php/news/499-chinese-box-manufacturers-commit-to-waterborne-coatings.

Operating in a man’s world
A Havering-based container sales and hire company which is unusually staffed mainly by women is enjoying a boom in business.
Leigh-Ann Bath is owner and managing director of Containers4saleUK, which has its HQ at the CEME innovation centre in Rainham.
Her team operates a modern eco-friendly container sales and hire fleet business from sites throughout the UK. Leigh-Ann, who lives locally, said: “After working for many years for a global container leasing company, and witnessing many rounds of redundancies, I decided it was time to take control of my own destiny.
“This business was set up four years ago at the start of the current economic problems and we are enjoying a healthy growth year-onyear. We specialise in all types of storage solutions including
temperature-controlled refrigerated containers for hire within the food industry.
“We have a very diverse customer base ranging from local builders storing their tools to pharmaceutical companies storing vaccines, and major supermarket chains. “This is a strongly
male-dominated industry with very few women. I believe this is the only temperature controlled hire fleet operated by a prominently female workforce.”
Leigh-Ann, who is married with a teenage son, had left her former employers at the same time as Lynda Smallwood, who is the company secretary for Containers4saleUK.
She said: “She and I have worked extremely hard throughout these troubled times and thank our customers and supply network without whose support and loyalty our business wouldn’t be where it is today.”
