10 Foot Shipping Containers

Simple Box 10 foot container

A 10 foot container provides 80 square feet of sturdy storage space (much stronger than a garden shed). Standard 10 foot container height is 8 feet 6 inches outside, which allows for and Interior storage height of 7 feet 8 inches.

Our new 8×10 containers typically come in tan or gray color. They feature a built-in lockbox for added security and forklift pockets to for ease of moving around. Thick rubber door gaskets help keep the container free of wind, water, and rodents.

Although most of our 10 foot containers come with standard cargo doors, some of our 10 ft containers have a roll-up door option.

10ft_Roll-Up Door

We take a decent used shipping container and cut it down to 8×10 size. We then install a brand-new steel end wall and finish it off with a fresh coat of paint (typically light gray or tan). These 10′ containers have the option of either standard cargo doors (a little lower cost) or a 6 foot roll-up door (a little more convenient). The nice thing about choosing a custom-built 10 foot Container is that you get just the right sized space for a lower price than a new Box.

Because of their smaller size, the cost to ship them overseas has not been subsidized by having freight inside them… as a result, you can expect a new 8×10 or 7×9 container to often cost the same amount or even a little more than a new 20 foot container. But if you are needing secure space for a good price and don’t have room for a larger Box, the 10 foot container is the perfect solution. Typical 10 ft Container Pricing in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho can range from $2500-3700.


How Containers Are Delivered
