Built from weathering carbon steel, these units are secure from wind, water, vermin and thieves.

The shorter and less commonly available 40ft container is suited to large sites with ample space for onsite storage. Measuring just over 12 metres long, these usually do not suit standard residential blocks, although they can be squeezed onto large driveways in some cases.


Given the large internal volume, they are often used for more than just household or business goods storage. They are an affordable and ready-made alternate solution to sheds or workshops. They can store machinery and equipment parts, or be used for site offices or accommodation away from the main building, with some minor modifications.


Whatever you store in your 40ft shipping container, you can rest assured it will be safe.

How should I move a shipping container?

  • When transporting portable shipping containers, tilt bed trucks allow cargo to easily slide off the bed, reducing the amount of machinery required to place your container at its temporary destination. For moving containers around a job site, reach forklifts that can lift at least 15,000 pounds are recommended for quick transportation.

The 40ft new shipping container is part of our new shipping container lineup. It is built with CORTEN anti-corrosive steel that is more durable and has better rust properties that improve the life of the container. New shipping containers are often referred to as one-trip containers.

The container floors are built with 19 plies of Keruing-Apitong marine-grade plywood. The quality of this plywood surpasses that of regular plywood because it has a high density which translates to very low moisture content, preventing fungi and termites from attacking it. It is the reason why shipping containers are able to withstand frequent cargo loading and sea travel.

The 40′ standard-height storage containers come equipped with 4 weatherproof vents for air ventilation throughout the container, 36” high locking bar door handles for easy access, forklift pockets for easy handling, and a secure lockbox for maximum security.
