Container Case Study of the Month


Made for Quarry Bank Community Centre as a workshop for metal work and woodwork, as for part of their Men In sheds project. This conversion required us to join 2 x 20ft containers together, to form a 16ft wide space to add to the community's allotment and outdoor recreation area. Find out more about the Quarry Bank conversion on our case study page.

Shipping Container News - brought to you by Sally Shipp

CONTAINERS WITH FORK POCKETS

CONTAINERS WITH FORK POCKETS
**UPDATED Are you planning to handle your storage container using a fork lift? In that case you’ll need to choose a container that has fork pockets. While most 20ft shipping containers come with these as standard nowadays, and it’s not uncommon to find them on 40fts too, smaller sized containers are not generally manufactured with fork pockets.

The good news is that Containers Direct can now supply all our containers for sale with fork pockets, upon request.

HOW WIDE ARE SHIPPING CONTAINERS?

HOW WIDE ARE SHIPPING CONTAINERS?
**UPDATED The question of shipping container dimensions is one we frequently get asked. In some ways this is a simple question to answer. Regardless of length, an ISO shipping container is always 8ft wide. But the story doesn't end there.
