Containers Built To Last

Containers are designed to carry up to 30 ton of cargo and to survive all the hazards a sea journey can subject them to.

The salt in seawater corrodes metal and for that reason, Shipping Containers are made from high tensile, rust resistant Cor-Ten steel.

Containers not only have to endure the constant exposure to highly corrosive salt water, but also have to survive the abuse suffered in transit. They have been swung around on cranes often crashing into other containers. Sea waves can completely crush the whole side of a container making it totally unusable.


Depending on their size they are made from 2.5 to 6 ton of high tensile, rust resistant Cor-Ten Steel. Their corrugated sides improve their overall strength and durability even further. Their main structure consists of Top
Rails, bottom Rails and four corner posts. The flooring is made from highly durable Marine Plywood supported by steel bearers, called cross members, which run widthways, joining the two bottom, side rails . They are built to carry 30 ton in cargo. For further information see the diagrams on our Technical details section.

It is therefore not surprising that Shipping Containers will greatly outlast any other similar use product i,e wooden sheds, or plasticoated cabins.

They offer great value for money.


A large part of our business is steel fabrication. We have our own in house team who can design, construct or convert anything you may like in steel.

Made out of high tensile and rust resistant Cor-Ten steel they are made to last. They are strong, durable and adaptable and will outlast any of their wooden or plastic counterparts.

From cafe/bars, ice cream parlours, beauty saloon, office space, sheds, chicken shed and school classrooms we have the skills to create any unique conversion.


We aim to ensure that whenever and wherever possible our prices are the lowest in the market and ask our customers to advise us if they find otherwise. If you have been offered a lower price then please advise us and we will do our utmost to beat it. Capital Containers provide a fast efficient and comprehensive service. We can source any kind of container or accommodation unit. We pledge to maintain very competitive prices without compromising on quality. We pride ourselves on our honesty and integrity and as we make this price promise we will do our utmost to fulfil it.
