As a company that works with a wide variety of private and commercial clients, 1st Containers tries to keep its product portfolio as diverse as possible. Our 6ft long shipping containers are the smallest units in our product range, but despite their seemingly small dimensions, they can be very practical and hold a surprisingly large volume of goods. They are made of corten steel using the latest manufacturing technology by experienced engineers, and they are just as reliable, secure and durable as any other shipping container we supply. 6ft storage containers are available to buy or rent, so they offer a cost effective storage solution for home and business owners alike.

Our 6ft and 8ft containers are frequently used by homeowners in need of extra room, sometimes on a temporary basis and sometimes as permanent solutions. They are commonly used to store furniture, household appliances, garden equipment, workman’s equipment, small quantities of commercial cargo and a wide array of other items. Our dry storage units are weatherproof and protect goods from moisture, so they are ideal for an outdoor setting such as a garden or office grounds. They can also be locked to protect them from intrusion, while all the edges are well sealed, preventing vermin from gaining access. Additional protection can be installed on request, with lock pads, alarms and other security features available as customisations.

Our 8ft shipping containers are popular due to their practicality and affordable price, they are also mobile and flexible. The same container can be used in multiple roles, moved between locations or converted for a different purpose.
