Cargo Shipping containers

Moving your cargo from one site to another is easy with using Acorn containers. We have containers for any situation regardless of dimensions, distance or final destination.

What is a shipping container?

Shipping containers manufactured to endure the elements as well as freight and handling. All Acorn containers are wind and watertight, and our containers will get your load where you require it. All Acorn containers are ISO and CSC certified (storage containers are not CSC certified).

Why use shipping containers?

Shipping containers are adaptable and can be used to move or store goods. From storing furniture to filing office inventory, our storage containers can meet your needs. Were you looking to ship cargo to another country? No problem, our CSC plated shipping containers are ready to help.

Varieties of shipping containers

Not all cargo pieces fit neatly into a conventional shipping container, so Acorn containers have a range of special containers to satisfy your precise requirements. Options include standard ISO shipping containers, 20ft & 40ft open-top containers, ISO containers with double doors and flat racks.

Storage shipping containers

Suppose you need a storage solution that's friendlier to your wallet and environmentally friendly. Using retired shipping containers as storage containers is the perfect answer. We inspect all our storage containers to ensure their structural integrity, and they are wind and watertight.
