All of our new containers arrive in to the UK in either Blue (RAL5010) or Green (RAL6007), these 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 pondered 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?

We have a dedicated transport team who 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 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.

  • These containers represent very good value for money. Instead of building a £45,000 building extension we purchased 3 containers, and to be honest they are better than the building would have been!
  • You cannot beat the service or the people I have dealt with at Willbox. If everyone could be as customer focused as you, life would be so much easier!
  • We have worked with Willbox in the South East for a number years. The service provided has been good and we have found their team flexible and willing to work with us.
  • I know that shipping containers are not normally something to get too excited about, but the level of service you have provided me with recently certainly is!
