Shipping Container Dimensions

When selecting a shipping container, the most important consideration is determining the shipping container size you require. SEA Containers offers one of the largest ranges of shipping containers sizes in New Zealand, so whatever your requirements, we can supply the right container for the job.

Shipping containers come in many sizes with the most common standard shipping container dimensions being 40, 20 and 10 feet in length. However, shipping container sizes and dimensions can vary drastically. There are two common shipping container heights; general purpose or high cube, and pallet width containers are also available to order.

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.

Testimonials

"Thanks again to the team at SEA Containers for another delivery of 20ft containers (this time 2 x standard 20ft one-trip containers).  The containers arrived in excellent condition and were again very reasonably priced when all the alternatives were considered.  At Devotus we are wine growers, within the heart of the Martinborough Terrace, making just a handful of bottles of ultra-high quality Pinot Noir.  We have quite a bit of valuable seasonal vineyard and winery equipment that needs to be safely stored away until when it's next required in the following vintage.  These containers are perfect as they are totally weather proof and secure, without getting into all the hassle of building permanent structures."
