Shipping Container Dimensions

Shipping Container Dimensions - What is the size of a shipping container?

Shipping containers come in many different sizes. 10ft, 20ft and 40ft containers are of course standard lengths, however they do vary in their heights (General Purpose or High Cube) and sometimes in their width (pallet wide containers).


If you are storing household contents from an average 3 bedroom home, it would be recommended that you utilise a 20' shipping container, where-as a 1-2 bedroom house you may only require the use of a 10' shipping container depending on the size of your large furniture items.

If you require shipping container dimensions for our specialist equipment such as opentop containers, flatracks or our opensider containers, please contact the team who can easily provide the information you require.

The shipping container dimensions shown below are for guidance only since individual containers can vary slightly:
