standard size shipping container width.

Standard size shipping containers and high cube shipping containers have a standard width of 8 feet, which is more than enough for moving cargo and storage purposes.

But what about if you need a shipping container that's wider than 8 feet. This type of containers don't really exist in the market. The only way to get such a container is by modifying one container or use two containers to get to the desired width.

Check out this 12ft wide shipping containers " Image to the left " that we built last month for an out of state customer. It's a 40ft high cube, 12 feet wide, fully insulated with roll up doors and a man door.

Same thing goes for a none standard length. If you're restrained by space and your project require a 30ft long container for example. You're out of luck. Again 30ft long shipping containers don't exist in the market or anywhere for that matter. So what to do?.

Just contact us. That's all. There isn't a shipping container that we can't modify, There isn't a modification that we can't do, There isn't a length/width that we can't achieve.
