40FT SEA CONTAINER
In order to conform to ISO shipping standards a 40FT SEA CONTAINER has the following measurements:
Height: 8' 6''
Maximum gross weight: 30,480kg
If you are planning to use our overseas removal service, it is vital you use an ISO certified container to take advantage of the lowest costs available. A 40FT SEA CONTAINER will give you a cubic capacity of 2360 ft, and all you have to worry about is loading and unloading at both ends of it's journey. We also sell 20ft shipping containers with a cubic capacity of 1160 ft for smaller requirements. Whichever size you chose to ship, make sure it has been CSC 'plated' to show it has been inspected and passed as safe for shipping. As your container will be handled and stacked alongside many others, it's not just your container and its contents that could be adversely affected without these inspection rules being in place. Think of this as similar to an unroadworthy car on the roads, and how this can affect other road users too. Fortunately we have a system whereby your car must have a valid MOT, so in the same way a 20FT or 40FT SEA CONTAINER must have a valid plate for the journey.
Every ISO compatible 40FT SEA CONTAINER is made from galvanised steel with interior ply flooring, and rubber sealed, forward facing locking doors, viewable close up on this 20ft model.
