30ft Container Specifications

Our self-contained 30ft storage containers are made from solid steel and fully seamed welded to ensure the highest levels of durability. The container floors are manufactured by cutting down a larger 40ft container.

There are weather-sealed steel doors at each end of the storage container to allow convenient access and loading. Although it is worth noting that 30ft containers cannot be moved once loaded, so ensure its positioning is correct before loading.

How Adaptable Are 30ft Containers?

Although they are restricted to empty lifting only (given they’re cut down from 40fts), 30ft storage containers can be used for a number of applications. For instance, a 30ft container is ideal if you have substantial storage requirements and want to store materials on site. 30ft storage containers can also be the perfect size to accommodate some medium to large-sized conversion projects. Previous clients have successfully converted 30ft storage containers into steel container offices, temporary bars, and other bespoke container conversions. However, if you are looking for a conversion project, one of our other container sizes may be more suitable, as their structure is slightly more durable having been built to size.

Firstly I think that the cost of the unit we bought was good value. The information pack and instructions were very clear so I knew what I had to do to prepare the site. The communication was excellent. The delivery was on the correct day, and the driver was very good. He was helpful and polite and dropped the container exactly where we wanted it. The container itself is in very good newly painted condition with an excellent lock that will deter the local hooligans. All in all it was a very rewarding experience and we now plan to acquire another container. Ten out of ten!
