Static Caravan- Shipping Container.

Does anyone have a nice 30ft ish Static Caravan they want to sell or a reasonable nick shipping container? Can arrange transport for both.

I think one can rent those shipping containers at pretty resonable rates. I heard 20pm mentioned once.

i know where there are literally thousands of shipping containers that they are trying to get rid of apparently,,,,,in new york,
they have a particular problem with a large build up of the things and have far too many

perhaps ports in the uk may suffer the same issue so you could make some calls direct to them

Have you tried www.thecontainerman.com ?

The last time I bought a container it was a grade B (used, not reconditioned, some cosmetic damage but sound) and cost about 600. That was 3 or 4 years ago though, so prices might have changed.

phone the usa and ask how much for one and to ship it back.....might be cheaper than you think as they can fill it with goods for the trip over then leave it with you

worth a go

As long as it's water tight, I'm not bothered about the aesthetics. Cheers, I'll see if the Containerman can.
