This is the smallest container you can have and is exactly half the size of the 20ft unit.

The 10ft shipping container comes in handy when space is at a premium, but you still require the strength and portability of a shipping container.

The 10ft container is about half the size of a single car garage and this makes them ideal for small space storage applications, but they can also be modified to make countless shipping container products.

This sized container is not very common in shipping, so second-hand 10ft containers are usually made by cutting a 40ft container into four equal parts and adding back walls and doors to the cutout pieces. One piece retains the original back end of the larger container while another retains the original door of the container.Tiger containers supplies both new and used 10ft shipping containers for sale and hire. Our containers are of high standard and are competitively priced.

Because the container is about 3m in length, it can fit in the smallest of spaces saving you the headache of having to look for space to put it.

Enhanced mobility

The smaller size of the container makes it more mobile as it can fit on smaller, more manoeuvrable vehicles as compared to larger units.

Toughness and durability

This container is made of high-quality steel and has all the durability features of the larger sized containers. This will ensure that the container lasts for a very long time.
