    Have Any Question?

Shipping container dimensions are different for each shipping container. Shipping container dimensions are highlighted in this blog by the type, dimension (sizes), applications , delivery options and the main customer base for Shipping Containers Sydney.

What are shipping container types?

General purpose shipping container dimensions

General purpose containers are used for transportation of goods and cargo by sea and land. They’re built to marine specification- made with solid Corten steel to withstand shipment, storage, and handling. They’re incredibly strong, watertight and durable. Their strength and durability is the reason they are frequently used to store resources during a building construction or for a temporary office space during a job that involves being on site for an extensive period. But most importantly, they are a great storage option to store your goods!

High cubed shipping container dimensions

High-cube containers are like a general purpose container, but a foot higher. They’re one of the safest ways to store your goods because all shipping containers are solid steel, waterproof, wind-proof, and watertight. If you want to store tall goods or stack those large bulky items than this is the ideal shipping container for you. The extra height is also perfect for container modifications. Modifications can be done upon request at Shipping Containers Sydney.

What are shipping container applications?

  1. Storage
  2. Office space
  3. Catering
  4. Exhibiting promotion/stands
  5. Low-cost housing
  6. Portable ablution facilities
  7. Refrigeration containers
  8. Fire training facility

Converting a shipping container into a living, office or retail space is popular for many businesses. This is because it is cheap, environmentally friendly, secure and durable. There is also the opportunity to customise your shipping container and add accessories to include things like:

  • Shelves
