Our new and used 10ft storage containers in Edinburgh are perfect for the domestic storage market, where space can sometimes be hard to come by. 10ft containers are not to the same ISO standards as 20ft and 40ft containers so are generally only suitable for storage purposes. However, other than the 10ft length, these containers conform with the 8ft width and 8ft 6ins height of standard shipping containers, they are simply not classed as standard ISO containers. We are also able to supply high cube units providing 9ft 6ins of height. 10ft storage containers can be fitted with standard cargo doors or with flat panel, easy access doors which have less locking bars than the standard cargo variety. The descriptions below explain what we mean when we say new or used.
