Side Opening Shipping Containers

For easier loading of large items, better access or for display purposes, consider side opening containers. Opening on their longest side, these containers are best suited to site storage of bulky items, exhibiting or use as a stall.

Things To Know About Our Side Opening Containers

Side opening container units are generally available in 20ft, 40ft, or 40ft high cube. The wide access point is on the longer side panel, consisting of full concertina cargo doors. There are also standard cargo doors on one 8ft end of the unit.

Side opening doors are heavier than standard cargo doors so the roof and floor of containers are reinforced to create a robust container. As a result of the reinforced floor and roof, there can be a loss of internal height in the container.

Side Opening Shipping Containers For Conversion

Side Opening Shipping Containers offer many conversion opportunities and the units can be easily customised to suit your needs.

As the container has doors on the longer sides, they are great solutions for those looking for unique exhibition stands, performance venues, ticket kiosks, pop-up bars or retail outlets. The side opening containers can also be divided into multiple sections, so you can have two or more office spaces or retail displays in the same container.

Having never ordered a shipping container before Scott couldn't be more helpful…or patient! The ordering process was easy, even for me and the communications were first class. Charlotte was very attentive and professional when it came to confirming delivery details. The container arrived as expected, when expected. The entire process from quote to delivery was flawless. Our newly painted container now proudly sits, waiting to be loaded! Thank you all.
