Shipping containers have multiple practical uses and help thousands of individuals and businesses every day in the United States. Whether you are looking for used shipping containers for sale or new storage containers for sale, you’ll be able to find a solution for all of your shipping and storage needs if you work with a professional container supplier.
When looking for new or used shipping containers for sale, however, it’s important that you understand the dimensions of each option available to you. If you’re in need of large storage for your commercial business, for instance, you might want to purchase a much larger container. Similarly, if you are only using these containers for personal storage use, a standard twenty- foot equivalent unit (TEU) container should suffice because these TEU containers can hold approximately 3,500 small shoe boxes.
Here are the types of shipping containers to consider using for your shipping or storage needs.
20 Foot Containers
These 20 foot containers are the most standard and common size for both shipment and storage. The reason these containers are so popular is because the size, though not as large, is typically large enough for just about any storage or shipping job, and the containers themselves are of the highest quality. Each container is watertight, fully secure, and are practically impervious to all kinds of elements such as rodents, rot, insect infestation, decay, and high levels of humidity. The exterior dimensions of these containers are 20 feet in length, 8 feet in width, and 8 feet 6 inches in height.
Insulated Containers (varying sizes)
Not everything can be transported or stored in the same type of container. Certain things require specialized containers because they are sensitive to extreme temperatures. Refrigerated and insulated containers are great for transporting and storing all kinds of items and products including food and beverages, chemical products, pharmaceuticals, commercial equipment, household items, and vehicles with leather interiors.
40 Foot Containers
Keeping the same height and width dimensions as the 20 foot container, the 40 foot model is clearly designed for much larger storage and shipping needs. These large-scale containers are great for storing agricultural supplies and machinery, heavy loads of hazardous materials and chemicals, furniture and appliances, large vehicles, portable generators, and other large commercial or personal needs.
