Choosing the Right Shipping Container



Choosing the perfect shipping container can be a daunting task, especially with so many options available. From size and grade to customization features, each decision plays a crucial role in meeting your specific needs. In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the step-by-step process of selecting the ideal container for your requirements, ensuring that you make an informed decision every step of the way.


Step 1: Length

The first consideration is the length of the container. While 20' and 40' containers are the most common, we offer a range from 10' to 53', catering to diverse storage needs.


Step 2: Height

Next, determine the height that best suits your requirements. Standard containers at 8'6" are suitable for most storage needs, while high cube containers at 9'6" offer additional space for larger equipment.
