Shipping container dimension can seem a really complicated and confusing subject to the layperson. But in reality, working out what shipping container dimension you need for your company’s transportation or storage requirements, is actually a lot more straight forward than you might think.
Standard Container Sizes
In the world of container sales and hire, standard shipping containers come in 10ft, 20ft and 40 foot sizes. And if you’re working in an industry (like mining, construction, energy, etc) where 40 foot containers might not be big enough; you can super-size your order by adding additional containers (either side by side, or stacked) with the use of our very own, industry leading ‘Port Joining Kits’.
All our shipping containers are water, wind and vermin proof, come with 270 degree opening doors and are build from solid structural steel. They are also transportable, which means your storage container (no matter what dimension), can be transported to almost any location you need. And of course they come with a 30 day money back guarantee, so you can always shop with complete confidence.
