New Shipping Container Dimensions
Before you buy or rent a shipping container, the dimensions are something you have to consider. New shipping container dimensions can vary depending on the type of container, but they’ll have an overall impact on which container you choose. You don’t want something too large or too small for your needs, but you have to keep any space constraints in mind.
For example, will there be a problem getting the shipping container delivered into your location? Do you have a crowded or narrow area where a shipping container won’t fit through? If so, you may have to rethink your size. Maybe you overestimated how much shipping container you need, and now you have tons of extra space in your container but very little space around it.
These things can all be problematic, and this is why it’s essential to get your new shipping container dimension before you order and the delivery service brings it to you. Since there are several types and sizes of shipping containers available, we’re going to give you the dimensions for general or standard containers below.
*10-Foot Container External Dimensions – 3.10 m long x 2.44 m wide x 2.53 m high
*10-Foot Container Internal Dimensions – 2.98 m long x 2.35 m wide x 2.38 m high
