CONTAINERS FOR CAR STORAGE

If you've thought about using a shipping container as a garage for your car, but are unsure about the fit, the CarTainer, exclusive to Containers Direct, is the answer. Built to a 10ft width, the additional 2ft of space over a traditional shipping container gives you the space to get in and out after you've parked up, without the wriggle. This container for car storage has been designed and built from scratch, using our expertise in garage design. As well as additional room, we've added ventilation to stop condensation, and top notch security locks, to keep your pride and joy safe and dry.

Getting in and out

With a low level floor, driving a car into a container is not usually a problem. However, as some as our clients prefer to use a ramp, we have designed this 8ft x 4ft CarTainer ramp for use with container car storage. The ramp is low level so it can be left in situ, even when the opening and closing the container doors.











Keeping condensation out

The vents installed as standard on the CarTainer allow for a cross flow of air to keep moisture build up at bay in a container that is in frequent use. However, if you are planning to use the container for car storage over long periods of time shut away, then we recommend looking at further condensation treatments. We offer two options as extras:

Please note, the CarTainer must be sited on a level, hard standing surface.
