10-Foot shipping containers are the ever-versatile backbone of the shipping container industry. Offering 16 cubic metres of storage space they make the ideal home or business storage solution. After all, they offer much better security and protection for your tools, gear, or other important items than a run of the mill garden shed, etc; making a 10-foot shipping container an ideal structure to use for your personal storage or business transportation needs. Plus these 10-foot shipping containers will outlast other traditional wooden, aluminium, or composite sheds, offering serious value for money. After all, if they can survive long sea journeys in arctic conditions, they can sure as heck survive in your back yard! And best of all, they’re portable. So if you move, you can take your 10 foot shipping container with you.

Check Your Local Council Regulations
One of the advantages of 10-foot shipping containers is that they are small enough to comfortably fit on most properties. You get to expand your storage space without having to invest in an expensive renovation or landscaping project.
They also are more likely to be accepted by your local council because of their compact size. Before ordering your container and having it modified, be sure to check with your local council to find out any rules and regulations that pertain to using a container on a residential property.
Check Your Site
Next, evaluate the area you want to use for your container. You want to make sure it is flat so the container will sit evenly on the ground. You can also arrange footings if you want the container to sit above the ground. Also, make sure your space is accessible. When your container is delivered, are there any power lines, overhanging trees, or buildings that will make it difficult to place it in your desired location?
