Container prices vary with the market and depend on factors such as:
- New or used
- Volume purchased
- Current stock
- Currency exchange rates
- Delivery location within the UK
- Special delivery considerations
- Modification or conversions
You can purchase or hire new and used shipping/ storage containers within the UK, individually or in any quantity from S Jones Containers. Stock containers are 8ft, 10ft, 20ft and 40ft long, (see detailed Container Products); we can also modify to bespoke lengths.
Shipping containers are of all welded steel construction except the floors which are made of load bearing marine-ply over steel cross bearers. Containers typically have two weather sealed steel doors at one end hinged at or towards the outside edges with full height locking gear that attaches at the top and bottom. Additional security measures can be provided, (see Contain-A-Lock® security accessories). Our containers are free standing, self contained units with lifting points at each corner, weather proof, and very secure. Our container prices are also very competitive.
Security fittings such as our patented 'Contain-A-Lock'® padlock shroud and a high security padlock and any further modification or conversion including repainting a new colour or condensation inhibition are also available, (see Container Accessories).
To enable containers to be used for overseas shipping a current 'CSC Safety Approval' plate must be fitted. We are certified to carry out CSC approval if required on used containers. New containers are within CSC approval for up to 5 years from the date of original manufacture and the cost is incorporated in our container prices.
Our experienced sales team can advise on the above and help you decide what is most suitable for your need.
We pride ourselves on our service, our equipment and our ability to supply any container to anywhere in the UK.
Whether your requirement is to purchase one or more containers or to hire a single container for a week or you are a large organisation that is working all over the UK, we are able to offer a personalised service to ensure your needs are met.
All customers needs are different and because of fluctuations in the container market and other variables such as delivery S Jones Containers quote specific, fixed container prices directly from our container sales department for each individual sales or hire enquiry.
Hired containers can be purchased from us at any time when on hire at a negotiated container price.
Please contact us by free phone or email with details of your requirements and delivery point and we will be pleased to confirm a fixed delivered container price with absolutely no obligation and advise on what accessories may enhance the operation of your container.

“We found ourselves in urgent need of some immediate expansion space for storage. We found S. Jones on your very accessible website. Our enquiry was dealt with quickly, professionally. Calculation of the deal was fair and direct. Delivery and installation of the containers was by the boss himself. So I am compelled to say both were impeccable. The courtesy of your follow up call only reinforces my experience, which is that S. Jones are a top class company. We will, in time require further containers. We don’t know when, but we know from whom”
