Shipping Containers For Sale Newcastle

With iconic landmarks and a rich history as the wealthiest coal port in the country, Newcastle has long been renowned for innovation and extensive industrial heritage. It comes as no shock that Newcastle has embraced the use of shipping containers for a wider range of creative uses than they were traditionally intended for.

Newcastle is already home to a creative container settlement beneath the iconic Tyne Bridge which includes a Tap Room, cafe, bike shop, and unique private hire spaces. The city is constantly innovating, with new shipping container entertainment venues and street food and leisure complexes becoming commonplace in Newcastle’s landscape.

New shipping containers in Newcastle

No matter whether you’re shipping goods or undertaking a modification project, our new shipping containers offer a viable solution. Each new container in our selection is built to ISO shipping standards using high-quality Corten steel, offering the highest quality in durability and security.

Our new shipping containers are ideal for a range of uses and come in a variety of different sizes:

  • New 10ft Shipping Containers – Tight spaces and smaller storage needs call for smaller solutions, and these compact containers are the perfect size for efficient space management.
  • New 20ft Shipping Containers – If versatility is what you’re looking for, this option is ideal for everything from storage to transport and modification, making it a hugely popular choice.
  • New 40ft Shipping Containers – From vast storage needs to high-volume shipping demands and complex modifications, these containers offer a great solution.

We also provide containers outside of standard sizing for more unique requirements:

  • New 8ft Shipping Containers – Perfect for smaller spaces and minimal storage needs, or as secure spaces for valuable equipment.
  • New 9ft Shipping Containers – While a smaller container, this step-up from the 8ft offers a little more flexibility for storage without taking up too much room.
  • New 30ft Shipping Containers – As a mid-size container, this size provides plenty of space for both storage and modification.
  • New 45ft Shipping Containers – With maximum space, our largest shipping container option is ideal for projects where size and volume are key.
