Daintons , Exeter. Big money these days owing to scrap prices. A 20x8 site safe store is a more secure option if you can find one, double plated lock s and internal hinges. Try Hewden Hire, they offload occasionally. A cordless grinder or gas axe would open a shipping container quite easily.

look at refrigerated truck backs, cheaper because they cost money to dispose, insulates so less condensation. and relativley secure as the foam slows down and sticks to normal cutting blades. Otherwise normal truck backs are good as alot of them have fiberglass roofs making it brigher inside also relativley secure but not as good as a proper shipping container

I got one at avonmouth docks , lots of companys selling them there , drive around all of them and view as condition and price was variable to say the least .
PS. if I was doing it again would pay the extra for insulated as condensation is bad.

Agreed. Condensation is a pain. Bubble wrap lining helps.
