How to Hire a Shipping Container in UK

Shipping containers are perfect to be used as a Secure Storage container. They are robust, lockable and watertight. They are ideal as an outside shed/lockup. You can hire a shipping container for a short or long term period.

There are many things to consider when renting a container.

1. Weekly Rate –  We always offer a minimum hire period of 26 weeks from £12 per week plus VAT for a 20ft container. That’s a lot of secure container space for £12 per week! Please do see the different sizes available for hire: Container Hire

2. Size container – We offer many sizes, ranging from 20ft to 40ft long. Again the prices vary depending on size and length of lease. Just click on the sizes above to see the many configurations we offer.

3. The delivery location – You will be required to pay transport and offload both to and from your site. Transport prices will start from £175.00 plus VAT each way. It all depends on how close you are to our depot. Here is a list of our depots across England: Depot List

4. Your site – You will need to ensure that whoever you hire a shipping container from is aware of these obstacles. Please do have a look at the video on this page that shows you how a container is offloaded from the vehicle. Please do remember if you are doing building work around the container, the area must still be clear for our collection.

5. Damage incurred to the container – When you hire a shipping container, you will be responsible for the insurance of the container whilst it is in your possession. There will be a ‘Write off value’ for the container on our ‘Hire agreement’. The container must be in the same state it was when you first hired it, so any damage or cleaning required will be billed to you at the end of the lease.

6. Locking system – We supply containers with a Lock box (shrouded area on the double doors, where you can’t get bolt croppers at the padlock). The lock box is included in the rental price, however the padlocks are sold at £50 each plus VAT.

7. Extras – If you require anything to be added to the container e.g. absorpoles or portable lights etc. then we can help, just call us for a quote.
