You may have been thinking about buying a 10ft wide shipping container but are unsure of whether or not this size of container is really the best choice for you. After all, isn’t bigger better? And what if you actually need more storage space than just this 10ft box?
If there is no immediate need for that much space however, a 10ft container may just be the perfect fit for you. Here are some telling signs of when you should opt for this smaller-sized container:
Space is at a Premium
When there isn’t much space available on which to put the container, then choosing a 10ft container makes the most sense. This size container can easily fit a single parking space or driveway, making it the most sensible choice for home storage needs. For temporary storage needs, you could even opt for 10ft container hire.
Manoeuvrability is a Must
One of the trickiest parts of purchasing a container is moving it. You can expect some difficulty when moving such a large item. With a 10ft shipping container however, this isn’t really a problem. This type of container can be transported in smaller vehicles than those of its larger counterparts, and can therefore be easier to transport. This is a particularly vital quality when moving the container in a residential area.
You Need a Custom Compact Space
10ft containers are not commonly used in shipping, which is why many of them have only been used once or are custom-made from larger containers. This makes them a great choice if you’re in need of a custom compact space. They can easily be customised as a mobile workshop, small office, outdoor cafe, food or market stall, pop up store and just about any other compact and/or mobile space you can think of.
Storing Dangerous or Perishable Goods
Probably the biggest advantage of a 10ft container is that it occupies the smallest space of all standard shipping containers and yet it is just as durable as the larger ones. Add to that the fact that it can be customised quite easily and these compact containers make for the ideal storage for time and temperature sensitive products like food, medicine and other perishable items. They’re durable enough to hold such items, can be customised easily to provide the ideal storage environment for such items, and they won’t take up too much space wherever they’re placed.
When it comes to storage shipping containers, sometimes bigger is not always better. Sometimes a good 10ft container is the best solution for your storage needs.
