Refurbished Shipping Containers

Second-hand containers are a more affordable alternative to one-trip containers. If you need a secure storage solution but don’t want the expense of a brand new container, we offer refurbished used containers that last just as long and still remain cosmetically appealing.

Refurbished Shipping Containers – Secure Storage at 75% of the Cost

If you have a lower budget but still need a reliable storage solution, a refurbished container from S Jones might be the answer for you. While these used containers have travelled more than our one-trip containers, our skilled painting and renovation services can minimise their dents and rusty appearance with the total price coming to 75% of the cost of a brand new unit.

Those looking to purchase used containers will often find that initially they come in a range of colours and may have large shipping decals on

them. This can make them unsuitable for storage on certain sites, or generally unsightly.

That’s why we offer our affordable and popular re-painting service to our customers. We utilise our professional container spray-painting booth at our main depot in Aldridge to achieve excellent results that speak for themselves.  See our recent renovations and customisations below:

It is not uncommon for a repainted container to still show dents and corner post markings however our skilled repair team will have worked to make it look the best they can.

Containers are moved with container lift trucks and hiab vehicles. Due to the nature of these machines, corner castings and posts can show some scratches which are unavoidable.

Simply put, no. When we repaint used containers we work on the worst or ‘more noticeable’ areas but cannot go through every single inch of the unit as this is very labour intensive. This can actually make the repaint more expensive than a buying a new unit therefore, there may be some areas of your container that are still marked.

3rd Jul 2024

I just wanted to thank everyone at S.Jones for the brilliant, professional service throughout the whole process of buying and delivering my container and also for their patience whilst we coped with very unhelpful weather on site. Special thanks to Rachel and Lorna and Lee at John Butlin & Co. Ltd
Transport and the very helpful, professional and efficient driver on the day. I had never bought a container (which by the way was very smart for a reconditioned one) and they all helped me when I must have been a complete pain at times!
