What can you fit in a 20ft Storage Container?

Did you know the whole contents of the average 3 bedroom home could fit into a 20ft x 8ft container, approximately the equivalent of a single garage? Don’t believe us? Let’s do the maths.

The above total of 939 cubic metres is well within the 1173 cubic capacity of our 20ft storage containers. Even if, as is often the case, you are unable to fit the items in perfectly, there should be enough leeway. It’s no wonder the 20ft container is our most popular container size.

What’s more, our containers are not just suitable for household storage; they can be used for all sorts of shipping and storage requirements. They feature hardwood flooring for stability and ventilation each side to remove any chance of condensation. They also have waist high door handles for easy-opening, locking bars on each door and lock boxes as standard.
