40ft shipping containers for hire and sale

In addition to our 10ft and 20ft shipping containers, we are also able to offer the larger sized 40ft shipping containers for hire and for sale.  These 40ft units provide ideal storage solutions on-site where space is no issue.  40ft containers are often seen alongside railway lines to store vital railway equipment, track and long lengths of cable (which would not fit into 20ft containers).

Given their sheer size, 40ft units also make brilliant places in which to carry out container conversions, where one can combine a wide range of uses all within a single container.  For example, a recent conversion project included multiple offices, a kitchen and toilet facility all in the same 40ft steel box!

This size also makes it ideal for residential container conversions for use on-site or even in towns and cities where space is not so much of a problem.  Otherwise, 20ft units usually suffice.
