5 Reasons That Make Shipping Containers The Perfect Storage Solution. Need somewhere to securely store machinery, tools or other goods? When it comes to the ideal storage solution, a shipping container ticks all the boxes. Let’s take a closer look at the reasons why:

1: Capacity:

When you’re in the market for storage, knowing you’ll have sufficient space to comfortably store your belongings is one of the most important things to consider. To give you an idea of their capacity, a 40th-foot shipping container can store 40,000 shoe boxes.- That’s a lot of Air Force 1’s!  We stock containers ranging from 10ft to 40ft in length so are sure to have an option to suit your capacity needs.

2: Durability:

Shipping containers are specifically designed to withstand multiple ocean crossings whilst exposed to the elements – In short they are made to last, and can comfortably serve as your perfect storage area for decades.  

3: Versatility:

For some people, a standard bare steel unit is perfectly sufficient for their storage requirements. However, if required shipping containers can be easily customized and fitted with additional features such as insulation and electrics. Need to adjust your unit’s positioning? No problem, shipping containers can be easily moved around by crane or forklift. (when operated by competent personnel!). If you need to, you can even arrange for your container to be transported to the other end of the country or beyond.   

4: Security:

Their self-contained steel design makes shipping containers secure by default. Heavy steel doors can also be fitted with a locking box as an increased security measure, meaning that a break-in would present a significant challenge to even the most motivated of intruders.

5: Value:  

Given their usefulness and longevity, shipping containers tend to hold their value very well. If you go about selling your container in the future, you are likely to make your money back or even turn a profit, depending on the current demand levels.
