20ft SHIPPING CONTAINERS
Because of its middle-of-the-road sizing, the 20ft shipping container has proven to be the most popular shipping container for almost all uses, whether hiring or buying from us.
Their more compact size enables the containers to be transported using smaller, manoeuvrable vehicles and be stored in smaller spaces – approximately a single vehicle parking space – all while still providing adequate room for storage.

20ft Shipping Container Variations
The 20ft shipping container comes in two common variations from the standard model to suit different shipping and storage needs. These include:
The 20ft high cube container - This is a slightly taller version of the standard cargo container and is designed to provide extra headroom for taller cargo. It retains all the other traits of the standard container but with a slightly higher build.
The 20ft open top container - This type of container has an open roof design and is meant for transporting extra tall cargo that cannot fit inside a high cube container or standard container.
uses for 20ft sea containers
Shipping cargo - This is the reason why the shipping container was invented. It enables consolidation of goods, makes handling easier and enables easy transition from one mode of transport to another. This all occurs while keeping the goods inside safe from the elements, theft, and pilferage.
Storage - This mobile storage will work just as well when in a fixed location to keep the things inside safe. Just about anything can be stored in a sea container including tools, machinery, sporting equipment, documents, household items, motor vehicles and more. They can also be used as independent sub-storage units within the warehouse for storing expensive items securely.
Conversion - Cargo containers have proven quite popular outside their normal realm and are increasingly being converted into different structures for use outside of the shipping industry. Popular shipping container conversions include accommodation, offices, ablution units, sheds, pop-up shops and cafes.

Seats are arranged in an adjacent open space to give costumers that outdoor feel as they enjoy their drinks.
