Buyer’s Guide

Everything you need to make an informed decision when buying from us.



What fits in a 10ft container?

The internal dimensions of a 10-foot shipping container are 9ft 4” long x 7ft 8” wide x 7ft 10” high. These dimensions yield approximately 72 square feet of storage. A 10ft container will hold the contents of a one bedroom flat – ideal for singles and students.

How much space do I need for a 10ft container delivery?

You will require a minimum width of 15ft to access the site and approx. 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 10ft or 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.

How much does a 10ft container weigh?

The empty weight of a 10ft container is 1.5 tons.
