Sports and football kit storage containers

If you are a kit manager or the person responsible for your team’s matchday uniform, training gear, and other equipment, aluminium kit skips are essential.

Kit skips are lightweight yet durable aluminium containers perfect for transporting sports kit and equipment. Widely used by Premier League football teams, kit skips are easy to clean, easy to stack, and can include optional castors to make them easy to move. Also known as travel skips, they can feature your club’s crest and branding.

At GWP, we have supplied kit skips for professional, semi-pro, and amateur sports teams for over 25 years. We are official distributors of the widely adopted Zarges K470 range and have extensive experience customising them for football kit storage applications.

Do kit skips rust if used in wet weather?

Kit skips are resistant to water, rain, and dust and protect the items within from impact and mishandling. Besides this, the containers do not rust. Aluminium travel skips are also unaffected by temperature extremes, making them perfect for a cold midweek game in January or the pre-season trip to La Manga.

Can travel skips be branded in my team's colours?

Kit skips can have team crests and logos applied to the exterior surfaces, ensuring that your club colours and identity are displayed with pride. You can also have kit skips painted in all-over colours, too. As such, your kit skips can reflect the professional appearance of your team—whether it is at a high-profile Premier League encounter or a pre-season training camp.

Can kit skips have wheels or castors added?

Although the aluminium material ensures kit skips are lightweight and maintain an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, they can become heavy and difficult to handle when fully loaded with kit or training gear. As such, it is possible to specify removable wheels/castors or use dolly trollies for improved manoeuvrability.

Can football kit skips be stacked?

The stacking corners on aluminium travel skips allow you to stack them during transit or when not in use. This makes them much more space efficient and allows you to easily transport more kit and equipment as required.

Are kit skips suitable for air travel?

Kit skips’ light weight makes them the perfect solution for international air travel, where airlines typically determine costs by weight. In fact, due to this, the majority of cases are ATA-approved for air travel.

Are kit skips easy to clean?

The smooth surfaces of the aluminium case interior are easy to clean, making them ideal for transporting muddy or dirty kit. The aluminium material is also inert and will not react to cleaning solutions or chemicals.

What kit skip sizes do professional teams use?

A wide range of kit skip sizes are available (25 in total). However, football teams commonly use 750 x 550 x 380mm and 750 x 550 x 580. You can see all size options here.

Can I lock my travel skips?

Besides protecting your kit from the elements, you can also padlock your kit skips to prevent theft (a significant concern for professional sports kit costing many thousands of pounds). Please note that padlocks are sold separately and not included as standard.
