Large, secure shipping containers you can trust for every job

When transporting goods in bulk or storing large vehicles or equipment, 40ft shipping containers from 1st Containers provide you with more than enough room to fit items comfortably.

Clients who need large amounts of space are typically interested in our 40ft shipping containers. This size is commonly used by international trade operators, domestic freight companies, as well as relocation companies and similar providers. However, they can also be useful in a domestic context, making them useful to move bulky furniture during relocation (especially if you are moving abroad) or store rarely used items on a semi-permanent or permanent basis. The full content of a large house can often fit into just one of those roomy shipping containers without the need to stack up the items too tightly.

With a huge 2720 cubic feet of available space enclosed behind walls made of Corten steel, 40ft containers from 1st containers offer the best combination of convenience and security. They can be locked from the outside to prevent unauthorised entry, while the walls are nearly impossible for pests to breach. Since this is one of the standard sizes supported by export and import companies, 40ft containers are readily available and ideal for shipping.

Due to their affordable price and simplicity of customisation, 40ft containers are often converted into functional offices, temporary buildings or even accommodation. It’s even possible to stack several containers and create a unique multi-storey building. Electric lights, advanced plumbing and other amenities can also be easily added – and all the work is carried out by our experienced team in our own container depot.

We offer competitive short and long-term hire rates on our containers. Prefer to buy? We stock a wide range of units in a variety of sizes.
