6 Foot Shipping Containers

Home » 6 Foot Shipping Containers

6 foot shipping containers offer 5 cubic meters of space and are the smallest we have on hand. Their lighter weight compared to standard sized containers makes them easier to transport not only with a forklift, but within an 8ft or larger container. These containers are ideal for usage in space restricted areas such as in residential sheds for secure, safe storage of equipment or valuables. 6 footers can be modified to include shelving or extra security.

Advantages / Uses

They are often used on residential premises as storage for garden tools or equipment, small portable workshops or secure storage of valuable sporting equipment for sporting clubs at sporting ovals / facilities. They are also ideal as a small storage option at construction sites or other premises where space restrictions apply.

The obvious advantage of mini containers is that they are highly portable, you can shift them with a standard forklift and transport them within empty, bigger containers. When purchasing small containers in bulk this 'Babushka effect' can save you on delivery costs as we can load multiple small containers inside one another and deliver them as a single unit which can then be unpacked and used as multiple small storage solutions. To further save space at your site, the 6, 8 and 10 footers can be stacked on top of other containers.

Modifications

Small shipping containers can be modified to include shelving for categorized storage, a roller door for easy access or with a lock box for extra security depending on your specific requirements. They can also be modified to include windows, personnel doors, air conditioning and insulation for solutions such as mobile security boxes, ticket booths or mini workshops.

Common modifications include: Insulation | Access Doors | Equipment Racks | Shelving / Workbenches | Lighting & Power Points | Custom Painting | Ventilation | Lock Boxes
