We ensure your contents are stored in tip top condition in these perfect 10 foot ISO shipping container units for as little or as long as required. A very popular and useful size to opt for as you can actually store smaller quantities, but as much as a studio flat or small one bedroom property snuggly. They are easy to use also! They are also perfect for people wanting to store trade materials and business papers.

These are one trip container units capable of holding a massive 10 tonne. They have wooden floors, plywood, or gloss varnished finishes, and can hold a one bedroom house of contents. They look smaller than they are, but remember, they are only half the size of our massive 20 foot container units. 

The steel structure of the unit is designed for harsh conditions across countries, but in self storage environments, have a very easy life. This is a very handy size of unit if you don't have the need of a full size unit.

Our 10 foot container units are kept in fresh, clean order and are a perfect size for those with less to store.

These storage container units, like their larger full size ones, are easy to operate, with heavy duty handles. They have two front opening doors. The units have trickle vents and rubber seals which keep contents sealed from the elements. These type are purpose made 10 foot units - they are not 'cut down' versions of their larger full size cousins meaning the double doors on the front are correct specification with rubber seals and correct locking mechanisms.
