We have new and used shipping containers for sale

Our containers are built to the highest industry specs

Many traders build containers for domestic use to a lower specification, using lower grade steel, less door components, lower grade floors and one less coat of paint. Our experience is that the cost savings are not worth it, so our commitment remains to provide the highest quality equipment available.

This page lists Boxman's range of shipping containers for sale only. They are sorted by size (length). If you can’t find the container or the features you're looking for, try our full listing of all shipping containers - or contact us. We can also build just about any sort of container you can dream up.
