20ft Containers For Sale Snapped Up For Storage In London

Monday, 7th February 2011
20ft containers seem to be the preferred choice for people looking for storage in London and Essex at the moment. A large percentage of containers for sale are bought by customers looking to keep them in the U.K for storage rather than using them just as a steel shipping crate. With space being at such a premium and the smaller roads in the U.K being so narrow many premises cannot cater for 40ft containers. There is a benefit of taking a larger box however if your storage goods will fill one, the cost to purchase 2 x 20ft containers will often far outweigh the price of a single 40ft. An option to consider that may be more economical is to purchase a 40ft and carry out a container conversion making it into 2 x 20ft. This type of modification can be carried out in a number of ways, either having both halves almost identical with standard marine doors and corner castings or to have the cut ends fabricated in flat steel which is often cheaper. A 40ft container and in particular a high cube will take some filling, the logistics involved when buying such a large box will mean an articulated trailer will usually be delivering it. This type of vehicle requires a wide gate opening and road in order to swing when turning in, something that will need consideration when placing on order.
