GLOBAL SHIPPING MADE EASY 

Logistics can be a complicated business, and while TITAN doesn’t actually move your goods for you, we do take care of one very big part of the equation. We’re the people to call when you need a strong, durable container to put your goods in so they’re protected when in transit.

If you’re looking for a large container to give you extra space outside your home or workplace, check out our storage container hire page.

But if you’re in the business of moving goods from A-B, renting a shipping container from TITAN Containers is as easy as 1-2-3.

First, check out our many options. As well as standard shipping containers in multiple sizes, we also have many fantastic specialist shipping containers, including flat racks and high cubes.

Next, fill in our easy quick quote form and tell us what you need. All you have to do now is confirm your order when your quote comes back.

A MUST-HAVE FOR EVERY SECTOR 

Our shipping containers can be seen up and down the country and further afield serving a multitude of needs, moving goods for:

  • Retailers 
  • Construction companies 
  • Wholesalers 
  • Industrial clients, including those in manufacturing, agriculture and automotive
  • And many more types of business

When shipping internationally, TITAN Containers’ 20ft and 40ft models are the exact specification you need to be accepted on a cargo ship. Plus, they’re crafted from corrosion-resistant materials that are well-suited to life at sea.

Take a look the next time you’re at a large UK port and see a fully loaded cargo ship. Some of the shipping containers on the back will almost certainly be ours.

RELOCATING? RENT A SHIPPING CONTAINER FOR THAT, TOO! 

If you plan to spend a long time in another country, renting a shipping container from us means you can take your possessions with you safely and securely. Our shipping containers for hire are perfect for:

Business relocations – when a UK business is moving offices to another country, there are often large volumes of furniture, files, stock and other items to transport safely. Hiring a 20ft or 40ft shipping container from TITAN is a popular option.

Expat services – if you’re thinking of starting a new life overseas, you can fit the entire contents of your UK house into one or more of our shipping containers. They’re the perfect cocoon for your goods as they follow you around the world.

Vehicle shipping – take your precious car or motorbike collection with you when you’re touring or moving to another country.

WHY OUR 20FT SHIPPING CONTAINER IS PERFECT FOR (ALMOST) EVERYONE  

When you rent a 20ft shipping container from us, you’ll find it’s roomy enough for most needs – whether you’re a private customer or a business client. The 20-footer is our most popular model and is widely used for European shipping and transporting goods domestically. We have huge numbers of 20ft containers in stock across the UK for fast delivery.

The internal dimensions of our 20 feet shipping container are:

  • Length – 5.90m
  • Width – 2.29m
  • Height – 2.38m

GREAT FOR COMMERCIAL CLIENTS 

For commercial clients, our 20ft shipping containers for hire are the ideal solution across multiple industries, including retail, agriculture, pharmaceutical, renewable energies, technology, and leisure.

They are popular with logistics companies, supply chain businesses, facilities management companies and any kind of business that needs to move things safely and securely.

Many clients choose us because of our incredibly high stock levels and UK-wide distribution. We can offer great deals on delivery rates because we’re usually just a short drive away.

Our standard shipping container is available in other variations, too, offering you multiple choices when transporting your goods. We also have insulated containers for added protection, as well as open sided containers and double door containers (also known as tunnel containers), which are great for easy access when loading different types of goods.

AND FOR PRIVATE CLIENTS, TOO! 

A 20ft shipping container gives you a floor area of almost 14m2 – not far off the same as the average UK living room. That means when you rent a 20ft container, it’s great for transporting a large number of belongings such as furniture, clothing, collections, garden items and more.

And don’t forget, the floor area doesn’t paint the full picture, as you have plenty of height, too – 2.38m of it. While we don’t recommend that you cram your shipping container so full of belongings that you can’t move, when you rent a 20-footer container you can easily move the contents of a whole house in many cases. We also have much smaller models available, such as our 6ft shipping container.

20 FOOT OR 40 FOOT ONLY FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING 

One important note when it comes to international shipping: cargo ships generally accept just two sizes of shipping container – 20ft and 40ft. This helps ensure efficient and safe stacking. Our 20 foot and 40 foot shipping containers for hire are the precise standard ISO containers you need when planning on using cargo ships to transport your goods.

If you’re looking for the biggest possible container for international shipping, check out the high cube versions of our 40ft containers. They offer an extra 10% height to give you maximum space.

HOW OUR UK-WIDE DELIVERY DRIVES DOWN SHIPPING CONTAINER RENTAL COSTS 

Using a shipping container hire company with a single depot in Birmingham won’t be cost-effective for a client in Scotland or Ireland (or anyone beyond Birmingham, to be honest). That’s why we have built up a network of 20+ depots across the UK and Ireland.

Shipping containers are big, bulky items. The longer your delivery driver is on the road, the higher the total cost will be. We have strategically created delivery depots in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, the North West, the North East, the Midlands, the South East and the South West – with all major cities such as London, Belfast, Manchester and Edinburgh easily covered.

It means your delivery costs when hiring a shipping container will be as low as they can be – and also enables us to offer you a truly local service, even though we’re a global company. We typically deliver using HIAB vehicles, though this can change. To be well prepared for our arrival, please read our delivery guide.

One last tip to keep costs down even further: go with the flow! While we’re happy to meet specific requests of every kind, the cheapest option for you will always be to rent a standard container that we have in stock at your local depot.

When only a precise model or even a bespoke container will do, we’ll move mountains to get it for you. But if you don’t care about the colour and are flexible on size, then ask us what’s available today at a great price. You won’t be disappointed!
