10ft shipping containers

10ft shipping containers are half the size of a standard shipping container and are a great solution when space is limited. They are frequently used by both business owners and homeowners for the storage of goods and/or equipment. They are also commonly modified for a variety of purposes e.g. site office at a construction site, garden shed for a household, coffee kiosk at a retail park etc.

10ft Shipping Container for Hire

The 10ft container is designed and constructed for the transportation of general cargo at sea and on land (road or rail) throughout the world and will be suitable for the environmental conditions imposed by those modes of transport. All materials used in the construction are able to withstand extreme temperatures ranging from -40C to +70C without effect on container’s strength and watertightness.
We offer both Premium Grade and Standard Grade for our 10ft hires.
Our Standard Grade 10ft hire containers are refurbished units that have been cut down from a 20ft shipping container.  To the end unit we add a single shipping door H2400 x W1200, we then prime and paint the exterior and interior of the 10ft container. Refurbished units come as either 1x door or 2x door 10ft’s.

Frequently asked questions

What are 10ft containers used for?
10ft containers are just as versatile as standard sized shipping containers (20ft) with the only difference being their capacity. The smaller size arguably makes them a more practical choice as they are able to be placed in a wider range of spaces while still offering good storage.
Do you sell modified 10ft containers?
Yes, we currently have modified 10ft container kiosks that are framed, welded and ready to go. These are perfect for trade shows, events and festivals and are extremely transportable for those travelling all across the country.
What colour do they come in?
Typically, our 8ft and 10ft shipping containers are either Blue or Beige. However, it’s a good idea to check with us as we sometimes have other colours. Of course, we can always paint any container in any colour of your choice for a modest fee.
I’m planning on moving house. Can a 10ft container fit all my belongings?
Typically, we advise using a 20’ft container for a 3-4 bedroom house. Also, 20ft containers are cheaper to transport as they can be put on a swing-lift truck whereas a 10ft requires a Hiab truck which is sometimes up to twice the price.

So easy to deal with, friendly and responsive. The price was great and the transport company were fantastic. Could not ask for more. [Near new, 20ft, black container]
