CarTainer® - 10ft Wide Garage Shipping Container
However, the one drawback with using a shipping container as a garage has always been its size; more specifically, the width. The majority of shipping containers come in a standard width of 8ft, which can make things difficult for storing for any vehicle from your average car size and upwards. You may be able to squeeze your vehicle into the container, but try opening the doors to exit the vehicle after you've parked it!
After putting our heads together at Containers Direct, we launched a brand new product that solves this problem; the 10ft wide CarTainer®. By adding an extra 2ft in width to the standard container measurements, we have come up with a container that combines the strength, security and convenience of using a shipping container as a vehicle store, with the additional space to manoeuvre inside! The CarTainer® is now the UK's best selling shipping container garage. The CarTainer® is available in three standard sizes:
Standard Features of the CarTainer®
Fabricated using 16 gauge corrugated steel construction for strength.
All CarTainers are fitted with a sloping roof as standard to provide rain water run off.
Steel and ply floor
We create a steel box section chassis for the floor overlaid with 25mm plywood.
Full width 3mm steel doors with two marine shipping handles and an industrial lock.
Using solvent free rubberised marine grade paint in a choice of colours.
The CarTainer® has 8 shipping vents fitted as standard to provide ventilation.
CarTainer® UpgradesThe CarTainer® can be customised with a whole host of useful optional extras including some of the features you may expect in a conventional garage. The most popular upgrades include anti-vandal personnel doors for ease of access, an electrical installation and ply lining and insulation to reduce the risk of condensation. Why not ask our sales team for the best upgrades to suit your garage container?
