Derbyshire Shipping and Storage Containers

Our shipping containers have been specifically designed to withstand harsh weather conditions and heavy loads during transport across the world. Our inventory in Derbyshire includes a variety of new and used steel containers that are ideal for storage and container projects. Whether you need a container for domestic storage or a base for your next project, our robust containers are guaranteed to meet your requirements. We offer a wide range of used steel containers in different sizes, with standard sizes being 10ft, 20ft, and 40ft, however, we have the capability to modify the containers to your specific needs. So why not take advantage of our large stock and get in touch with us today? Our knowledgeable team will be happy to help you find the perfect container for your needs, and our expert hauliers will get it to you safely and on time.


In Derbyshire we have a stock of used containers that have been owned by a reputable shipping line and have been used to transport goods within the country. We carefully inspect each used container before and after storage to ensure it is weatherproof and in good condition. Despite being at least 10-12 years old, we believe that with proper maintenance, our used containers can last for up to a decade. We can also enhance the security of the containers by adding a lockbox with a high security padlock.


A new container has been manufactured, most likely in China, and filled with cargo. It has been loaded onto a shipping vessel and commenced its journey around the world, with cargo loaded and unloaded as required. The container reaches its destination in the UK and is emptied for entry into the UK domestic market. They are aesthetically pleasing and showcase a neat appearance; commonly available in either blue or green.


A wide variety of ‘special’ containers can also be provided in wider Derbyshire, these include Side Loading Containers, Dual Side Loading Containers, High Cube Containers, Double Door or Tunnel Containers, High Cube Double Door or Tunnel Containers and Open Top Containers.


3J Services Ltd are based near the West Midlands. Locally we store in Cannock, Tamworth, Aldridge and Birmingham. Our containers in the West Midlands are also delivered into Mid Wales! From here we can offer:

Our team spends a lot of time in the North West as this is where our main container conversion facility is located along with where high volumes of our containers are stocked (Liverpool and Manchester). Storing here gives us the ability to provide cheap delivery into North Wales. Here you can find:

Our standard storage and shipping containers are held in the North East depots (Leeds, Hull and Newcastle upon Tyne) so from here we can offer fantastic rates on 20ft and 40ft, new and quality used units along with fast delivery services.

New containers are sometimes known as ‘one-way’ or ‘once shipped’ containers.

Aesthetically, they are much neater than used containers, generally speaking they are available in blue or green.

As two of the main container ports in the UK (Southampton and Felixstowe), high volumes of containers arrive in these depots every day. Containers that arrive into Southampton and Felixstowe are often distributed around the country by road and rail. From here we can offer the best prices on new (once shipped) containers, specialist containers and used stock when delivered locally or purchased in bulk.

From these two depots (Bristol and Cardiff) you may see our 20ft and 40ft storage containers heading out for delivery around South Wales, Devon and Cornwall! Both depots are smaller in size so capacity is a lower than other areas, this is a massive benefit if you need your container quickly!

Our storage facilities in Aberdeen and Grangemouth near Glasgow both have the ability to provide certified shipping containers, as well as storage units and simple container conversions such as painting. Here we also store DNV container stock. The majority of the containers stored in Scotland are railed up from Felixstowe or Southampton as this is the most cost effective way of moving stock up to the North.

We have over 70 combined years experience in the container industry, with a focus on excellent customer service. We have worked with our suppliers and hauliers for many years and they too understand the quality of service we expect.

“Excellent experience using Gordon and his team to sort out a condensation problem on a single skinned metal roof in two units on one of our estates. Clear communication and quotation process, turned up when they said they would and installed the Grafotherm in occupied units without any issues. Clean and tidy when they left - definite and easy 5* review. Will definitely use again and not hesitate to recommend.”

“I ordered a used 45ft container from this company, the service has been second to none, they are super efficient and very professional. Very quick with response, communication was spot on. Once everything had been agreed, the container was very good, clean, watertight, obviously used so had some war wounds, but a very reasonable price I might add, the planning for the delivery was super fast. The delivery could not have gone smoother, the driver was very polite, professional and helpful. Gordon is a credit to this company, well done and keep up the good work, I may be ordering another very soon.”
