30ft Shipping Container FAQs

What can 30ft shipping containers be used for?

Although they are restricted to empty lifting only (given they’re cut down from 40ft shipping containers), 30ft storage containers can be used for a number of applications once they are set up at their destination.  Common uses include storage solutions, construction site offices, mobile workshops, pop-up shops, temporary housing, and modular building blocks for larger structures. Some of our previous clients have successfully converted 30ft storage containers into steel offices, temporary bars, and other bespoke conversions. However, if you are looking for a conversion project, one of our other units may be more suitable, as their structure is slightly more durable having been built to size. For more information on the storage containers available, visit our container buyers guide page or contact our friendly advisors to discuss your storage container requirements.

Can I rent a 30ft shipping container?

Yes, we offer rental services for 30ft shipping containers. Renting can be a good option if you only need a storage unit for a temporary period. However, if you’re looking for a more permanent solution, we offer competitive pricing on 30ft shipping containers.

Are 30ft containers weatherproof?

Yes, containers are built to be weatherproof. Made from steel, they can handle harsh weather conditions and other challenges that may occur during transportation and storage. In order to maintain this durability, it’s important to ensure the container is properly sealed to prevent water or moisture from getting in.
