40ft containers are one of the two industry standard sizes, because of this, they are often the most cost-effective option when looking for a used container. 40ft Used Shipping Containers are amongst the cheapest shipping containers you can buy. We always have extensive stocks, available for delivery world wide (or you can collect from our depots). Second-hand 40 foots are one of our most popular product as they offer superb cost per square foot storage and are great for conversion projects.
40ft Used Shipping Containers are manufactured using high quality cor-ten steel, which is designed to stand up to the harsh rigours of sea conditions. We would expect a properly maintained used container to last you in excess of 15 years from the date of purchase from us. Our second-hand shipping containers are typically 10 – 15 years old from date of manufacture, the double doors will be fully operational and the door seals fully intact to prevent any water ingress. Flooring is formed from 27mm hardwood.
Each container is usually picked from the depot on a ‘next from stack’ basis, so the external paint colour of each unit will vary.
If you require your used container for shipping overseas, we can update the details on the CSC plate. Please advise us if this is a requirement when ordering.

40ft shipping container dimensions are standardized by ISO for guidance only. Slight variations between manufacturers’ specifications may occur.
To improve the security of a 40ft Used Container we can provide your container with a slimline lockbox. We weld the steel box onto the double doors to create a protective shroud over a padlock making it less tamper-proof. There are also high security padlocks available that partner the lockboxes.
All American Metals sells both new and used containers. New containers come direct from the factory, as one-trip units, meaning they have only been used to carry freight once. Used containers are available in a range of conditions. All American Metals categorizes containers into four classifications.
New ISO containers are constructed of steel with marine-grade plywood flooring.
Container uses include weather-tight storage, overseas shipping, portable offices and restrooms, modular buildings, machinery and equipment storage, military command centers, hunting shelters, and much more.
