All of our new containers arrive in to the UK in either Blue (RAL5010) or Green (RAL6007), which are the standard colours for shipping containers coming in to the UK market. Our used containers are typically ex shipping line or lease line containers, so they are a brick red (light brown) colour.

Although these are the main colours for our containers, we can arrange painting at all our major depot locations, and the colours we can supply can be found in the brochure below. Visit our custom colour containers page for more information.

If you’re thinking about purchasing a container, it’s likely you have wondered the following.

How do I buy a shipping container?

Start by reading our guide: How to Buy a Shipping Container. Once you know what type of container you want to buy, please get in touch with our dedicated sales team, and we will provide you with a price – with or without delivery.

What is the process for delivery?

Our dedicated transport team will plan every aspect of your container delivery. Initially we assess the access to your desired delivery location to check whether our delivery vehicles can safely operate at your site.

For many trade buyers with large fork trucks, containers can be delivered using our standard artic lorries with skeletal trailers. For end users and deliveries to residential areas, we typically deliver using our rigid crane vehicles, which can off-load into position.

Where are your containers located?

We have stocks at our port depots in Southampton, Felixstowe, and Liverpool. As well as these main locations, we also carry stocks across the UK. If you would like to see your container before purchase, contact us to arrange a site visit.

How much do containers cost?

Shipping containers in the UK are very competitively priced; the cost of steel and the supply of containers to UK shores are determining factors. Many second hand containers are available to purchase for under £1,000 + VAT. Willbox is renowned for being competitively priced, and if we are beaten on price, we are happy to match like-for-like quotations.

How can I pay?

We accept all payment types: BACS, cheque, cash, debit or credit card (American Express currently not available). Customers can now pay online using our secure payment gateway.

Once payment is received, your container will be booked for delivery, and sent to your location.

LAURA JOHNS ROCKS YOUR WORLD! (and Rob the delivery driver!) You guys were brilliant - we called, we sorted, you delivered. Bish, bash bosh. Laura's excitement matched mine for our spanking container (who knew two gals could get so much chat and giggles out of a big blue box?) Rob was brilliant - he has some serious big box positioning skills - impressed - and he was lovely! Like a friendly uncle with a grin (even at 7.15am) and serious big truck manoeuvring kudos (our drive is a tad tricky!) Win win. Smashing service. We now have space to hide all our crap while we renovate one of the most derelict houses in Cornwall! I hope you share this review and you give Laura and Rob a bottle of bubbly at the Christmas party. Do you guys have parties in a big maze of containers? Now THAT would be epic! Cheers everyone!
Efficient, speedy service. Thank you.
Very helpful staff, and the portaloo hire was problem-free. We would use them again.
