Shipping containers are useful, but we don’t think you know how useful they can be. Below we look at a definitive list of shipping container uses – we guarantee you’ll want one after!
Shipping containers are containers that are designed to be strong enough to be shipped and handled whilst protecting the items inside. They can come in many different shapes and sizes – from large steel cubes designed to be shipped long distance, to corrugated boxes. They come in various different sizes and are commonly between around 20 and 40 feet and above 8 foot high. The doors are commonly double doors that are attached to one end and hinged for maximum access. Although self storage is extremely popular within the UK at the moment, shipping containers don’t get as much of a spotlight, despite having more uses than standard storage units.
A standard storage unit is supremely useful for storing anything from seasonal furniture to stock, but it is in a fixed location. Storage containers differ because you can move them around, and do so much with them.
