10 Foot Shipping Containers - Benefits & Uses

10 ft shipping containers can be extremely useful when you don’t have a lot of space to work with or you don’t need to transport or store a large number of items. They are exactly half the size of the 20-foot containers which is roughly half the size of a single-car garage.

Their size and portability make 10ft containers popular for small space secure storage applications, but they can also be modified for many different uses. Because 10-foot units aren’t common in commercial shipping, many second-hand ones are made by chopping 20 ft containers into 10 units and adding doors and back walls. Also, only purpose-built 10’ units can be shipped, a chopped down unit cannot be certified for shipping.
