Welcome To Northern Containers

Northern Containers have extensive stocks of one-trip (new) and used containers in a range of sizes and types suitable for shipping or storage and available for delivery or collection from our depot in Stourton, Leeds.

Standard container sizes are 20’ and 40’ meaning these are the only sizes that are suitable for shipping. Northern Containers sold for shipping are inspected and CSC certified to ensure that they meet the required standards to be shipped on a container vessel.

After the standard 20’ and 40’ containers, 10’ and 30’ containers are the most commonly used sizes for storage. Northern Containers can also fabricate any size of container to suit your requirements in our on-site workshop using a new or used unit.

As well as the humble general-purpose container Northern Containers have a range of other container types in 20’ and 40’ sizes, all of which can be shipped or used for self-storage
