    Can shipping containers be delivered to Edinburgh?

    Although our main business address is based in the Northwest of England, we frequently deliver container conversions nationwide – from Land’s End to John O’Groats and anywhere in between!

    This is true for all of our products, including new and for-hire shipping containers, as well as shipping container conversions.

    Delivery times are generally around 3-4 working days after we have received payment. However, it is important to note that this is subject to confirmation – to see how long delivery will take, you should contact our expert office staff who can give you a personalised delivery estimate.

    Just give us a call on 0870 240 9405 or fill in our contact form and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

    I need a bespoke container for transporting goods – can Gap Containers help?

    One of the best ways to ensure your goods get safely from one destination to another is to design a bespoke shipping container, with the all-important valid CSC plate.

    So, if you need something other than our standard-size ISO containers (10ft, 20ft, 30ft, or 40ft), we can build a sturdy, secure, and watertight container that will hold your goods safely, no matter the conditions they experience on the way.

    They are suitable for both overseas shipping and storage purposes as they are constructed from high-quality Corten steel – unlike other steels, it has increased resistance to atmospheric corrosion.

    Want to add a colourful external coating or add your company branding? No worries, while our most common options are green or blue, we can use any RAL Colour to personalise the appearance of your bespoke shipping container, making it easier to spot and collect once it arrives at its destination.

    For more information about our bespoke container service, call us on 0870 240 9405 or fill in our contact form and we’ll get the process started for you.
