20 ft shipping containers are a great way to get the most out of limited space if you cannot fit a 40 ft shipping container in your area. The exterior container dimensions are 20’L x 8’W x 8’6”H. That is the standard dimensions for a 20 foot shipping container. They are also manufactured in high cube, which means that they are a foot taller than the standard height. A high cube measures 9’6” in height. The weight of an empty 20ft shipping container is approximately 5,000 lbs. The max gross weight of a 20 foot container is 56,000 lbs. 20 ft shipping containers are great at fitting into places that a 40 ft shipping container would just be too much for. These shipping containers are perfect for personal storage, residential projects and commercial building projects. Call or email McLaren Container Sales for a quote today!
