What fits in a 10ft container?

The internal dimensions of a 10-foot unit are 9ft 4” long x 7ft 8” wide x 7ft 10” high. These dimensions yield approximately 72 square feet of storage. These containers can fit the contents of a one-bedroom flat - so they’re ideal for temporary storage.

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 unit) however this will be dependent on the reach required by the crane to successfully deliver a 10ft container. Our containers are offloaded to the side of the vehicle so it’s important that we have considered the amount of space you need for delivery and our friendly hire team can assist with this.  If you can provide any relevant photos, videos and dimensions and we will be happy to devise a delivery plan.  Please contact us on 0808 115 3710.

How much does a 20ft container weigh?

The empty weight of a 10ft container is 2.4 tons
