We supply new and second-hand shipping containers for sale or hire to store and transport goods and equipment. Containers are available in three grades: 
‘A-grade’ new storage containers have had one trip direct from the manufacturer. ‘B-grade’ containers may have a few dents or blemishes but are still 100% fit for use. A ‘C-grade’ shipping container is supplied ‘as-is’.
