ISO shipping containers such as 20' or 40' General Purpose are the most commonly used containers in shipping and road freight as they meet international standards. They are also built pallet wide accommodating 2 standard size pallets (side by side) and in high cube formats for an extra foot in height.

Other options may include cargo doors on one or both ends and additional side opening doors built in by the manufacturer or installed by our modifications team.

Advantages / Uses

Standard ISO shipping containers we have for sale offer good possibilities for cargo securing thanks to their internal space being closed on all sides. Lashing rings are also installed to secure storage from movement during transit. Internal hold rails can be used for hanging garments or suspending fragile goods. Containers like these come standard with forklift pockets, gooseneck tunnel, corner castings and grappler pockets for handling. They are also wide enough for a small forklift, with the assistance of a ramp, to drive into for loading/unloading.

Open side containers (OS) feature side opening door(s) on one or both sides. This kind of access is useful for side loading and unloading via forklift which is particularly important for handling dangerous, heavy, buky or palletized goods. An ISO container in a stack with double side and end doors could potentially open at all 4 sides without affecting structural integrity as it is the corner posts that bear the weight of containers stacked above. Side access doors are also useful for ventilation into the container, especially if the container has been modified into a storage container or portable workshop .

Modifications

Walls are built from corrugated steel which naturally offers better air flow and is easy to repair and fabricate. The main structural beams at the corner posts allow them to be stacked or to be used as building blocks for accommodation or site office projects. Containers are watertight, weather and vermin proof and are coated with rust resistant paint for longer life. Thanks to its qualities, the humble ISO shipping container has many applications when modified .

Common modifications include: Insulation | Access Doors | Windows | Vinyl Flooring | Equipment Racks | Shelving | Custom Painting | Ventilation | Partition Walls | Lighting & Power Points | Plumbing | Mesh Platforms | Windows | Plumbing | Aircon | Lock box | Custom painting
