20ft and 40ft side opening containers from 1st Containers

These side opening containers provide easy access to stock, and are ideal for transporting and storing a wide range of items. They are also frequently used for container conversion purposes.

The main advantage to our side access containers are their multiple access points; which are along the 20ft x 8ft6in side, as well as the standard 8ft x 8ft6in end. They also have a thicker bottom rail than standard units and come with waist high locking handles for easy opening.

These units are perfect for a wide range of uses, from transporting military machinery and equipment, to container conversions. Popular conversion projects include exhibition stands, housing biomass boilers, pop-up shops and bars and mobile shops.

1st Containers stocks side opening containers in two standard sizes. Our 20ft side opening containers offer an excellent alternative to standard shipping containers. Whereas the larger, 40ft version provides you with even more conversion opportunities.

All our shipping containers are constructed from Corten steel, are guaranteed watertight, very secure and rodent proof.
