Manchester Container Hire & Sales

About Willbox Manchester

Our Manchester depot is located in the town of Bury, north of Manchester, in the Greater Manchester area. Our Manchester depot has quickly become one of our largest and busiest areas for container hire, and anti-vandal cabin hire.

Due to the heavily populated areas surrounding Manchester, the need for storage units such as steel storage containers is high, and there are also a vast number of construction sites in the area, that demand our site-accommodation units for site setups.

Our Manchester depot is able to supply storage containers for hire in the city of Manchester, as well as the hire and sale of ISO Shipping containers. One of Willbox’s main activities is complete site setups, whereby our selection of anti-vandal site accommodation units are used to provide the entire range of welfare facilities required for workers on building sites.


Willbox also carry one of the largest stocks of new one-way ISO Shipping containers for sale. Not only do we sell new shipping containers in Manchester, but our Manchester depot acts as a wholesaler providing shipping containers for trade customers, and self-storage yards across the UK.

All of our storage containers, shipping containers, and anti-vandal cabins are delivered on hiab crane vehicles (both rigid or articulated) and they are located on site by our experienced team of HGV drivers, and all deliveries are made under RHA standard terms and conditions. Willbox’s fleet of hire units are some of the modern products in the industry, and we attend to ensure that our hire stock is replaced over a four year period to ensure that our customers receive the best quality storage equipment on the market.

Manchester is a large city situated in the metropolitan county of Greater Manchester. The city lies 30 miles east of Liverpool in Merseyside, and sits on the River Irwell. Manchester has a population of over 500,000 and an urban population of over 2.5million, making it the largest populated area in the northwest and the second most populous area in the UK. Manchester’s growth was due in most part by the huge growth in the textile industry during the industrial revolution, and this resulted in Manchester becoming the world’s first industrialised city.
