Steel storage containers in 40ft sizing from SPAREBOX are known to provide more-than-sufficient space for most regular uses, including shipping. To envision their volume, think of a two-car garage on a footprint equivalent to two tandem parking spaces. They will typically fit the contents of a 3 to 4 bedroom home.
The high capacity of a 40ft container makes them top choice for those transporting large quantities of goods. This can be very cost-effective in a commercial application, where items are bought and traded in bulk amounts. As the largest standard size shipping container available, it makes sense to opt for one of these rather than two separate 20ft sized units, if applicable.
SPAREBOX’s 40ft shipping containers are also capable of functioning as an extensive and secure storage facility on dry land. Robust and fully lockable, they can house all manner of possessions including furniture and even large machinery.
