Are there condensation problems with steel containers?
Container condensation problems can sometimes occur depending on what is stored, the atmospheric humidity and temperature changes. All containers have a degree of ventilation which is usually sufficient but if considered necessary we can supply an anti-condensation coating to the inside roof of the container that prevents droplets of condensation forming, we can also supply moisture traps and drying crystals. Containers can also be fitted with a lining.
Can our container be a specific colour of our choice?
The new and used containers we have in stock will be a variety of colours. If the colour you require is not available we can spray paint the container whatever RAL or BS colour you need. Unless otherwise specified we use a high specification marine paint system on all re-sprays.
What is the expected service life of a container?
This depends on the use of the container. However, shipping containers are designed and manufactured to cope with a long and arduous life moving goods around the world. As such, they are very sturdy and secure. A used container will usually have been in international operation for in excess of 10 years and sometimes longer but depending on your use, depending on its location and reasonable maintenance it is not unreasonable to expect a further 10 plus years of use. New containers will have completed one journey from their country of manufacture and with reasonable use and maintenance can be expected to complete over 30 years as a storage container.
