20ft Container Hire FAQ’s

What fits in a 20ft container?

A 20ft shipping container can hold the contents of a 2 bedroom flat – approximately 200 double mattresses or 7,344 gallons of water in the 150sq ft of storage space.

How much space do I need for a 20ft container delivery?

The minimum width requirement for a 20ft container delivery is 15ft to access the site and approximately 24ft for offloading (plus the width of the container). However this will be dependent on the reach required by the crane to successfully deliver a 20ft shipping container. Our containers are offloaded to the side of the vehicle so make sure you calculate the amount of space required for delivery ahead of purchasing your container.

As usual the service has been very good. We have a slight problem as the left hand door is very difficult to open and close. Hopefully with use this will ease.
