Cheap 20ft Shipping Containers for Sale in London

Used Shipping Containers for sale in London

In June 2018, we secured a super deal on a batch of ex Textainer fleet shipping containers in our London depot. These cheap used shipping containers are sourced directly from the 2nd biggest leasing company in the world and these containers are all checked and if needed repaired in our yard before sale. All containers come with our market leading 2 year wind & watertight guarantee, or if required for export use can come with up to 12 month csc plate from the date of purchase.

As with all our used shipping containers, these are sold ‘cosmetics not guaranteed’ so whilst the container is solid, sound and in good order – they will come in their original shipping line livery, they will have dents and some surface rust. They will have almost certainly had some repairs done to them during their lifetime.  However as with everything we sell all these containers are all professionally checked over in our UK depots before sale, allowing everything we sell to come with our 2 year wind & watertight guarantee.

We expect most of these to come in an original Textainer livery, very similar overall to the reddish brown colour shown in the featured image, As textainer have brought up a lot of other smaller leasing companies over the past few years, and as they have leasing agreements with a lot of the major shipping lines we expect to have a range of colours and options available – but we must highlight that plain dark green containers (the most commonly requested option) are extremely rare to find.

Repainting used shipping containers for improved appearance

If you need something a little smarter we can also repaint any of these used shipping containers if your choice of marine grade paint finish. Whist we overspray the original livery we do not guarantee exact shade matching. We recommend darker shades where possible as these will show any dinks and dents less well than a lighter shade. Our most common colours are help in stock and these are dark green / bottle green RAL 6007, dark blue RAL 5013 and medium blue RAL 5010.

We can offer a basic external repaint in you choice of RAL colour for £200 + VAT or we can offer a premium repaint which included masking off the door seals and locking bars for a better cosmetic finish for £300 + VAT.
