Although standard sized shipping containers are 20ft or 40ft long x 8ft wide x 8ft 6in high, there a number of non standard sized shipping containers on the market too. These include cut down containers**, which can be ‘taken down’ to any length, extra long 45ft containers, high cube containers which are a foot taller, and pallet wide containers with an internal width of 8ft, which can accomodate two loading pallets side by side.

**Please allow for a tolerance of up to 190mm on cut down container lengths. These measurements may vary due to the construction and cut down process, where we may need to cut either side of the steel bearers.
