3 Big Benefits from Small Shipping Containers

Good things come in small packages—or so the saying goes. But as true as this might be, small is hardly a word anyone would use to describe a shipping container. After all, these massive metal boxes have long invoked images of apartment-sized structures, stacked on top of each other, sailing across the high seas.

But the truth is not every shipping container is a 40ft behemoth. If you are looking for a more compact storage solution, shipping containers come in smaller sizes. When space is limited, we have you covered with our mighty mini container options.

Check out all the big benefits small containers can offer up.

1. What size do small shipping containers come in?

First, it might be a good idea to go over exactly what constitutes a smaller sized container. Usually, anything less than 20ft long will fall into that category.
At Axcess Box Mobile Storage, we have a large stock of small containers to choose from. We offer storage container solutions in 8ft, 9ft, and 10ft options.

2. What are the benefits of using small shipping containers?

Compactness. A fraction of the size of the big boys, a small container is perfect for those people short on space. Whether you need extra storage on a construction site or a modest residential backyard, you will have no trouble making space for these mini options.
Mobility. A 40ft container will handle the heavy storage, but moving it from one location to the next is going to take some time and planning. Not so with the tinier units. Their smaller sizes mean easier mobility.

Sturdy. Just because you need a smaller container shouldn’t mean you have to compromise on toughness. Small containers are every bit as tough and long lasting as their bigger cousins. They are constructed with corrosion-resistant Corten® steel, complete with double locking door posts, hardwood flooring, and a vandal-resistant lock box for good measure.

3. What can I store in small shipping containers?

The short answer? Anything you want. Perfect for gardening tools, landscaping equipment, bikes, documents, and patio furniture, the list goes on and on. And the best part? With your very own small container, you won’t get dinged with those outrageous off-site storage fees. Before you know it, your container will have paid for itself.

When it comes to shipping containers, bigger isn’t always better. Going small has a ton of awesome advantages you simply can’t afford to ignore.
