40ft Shipping Containers Melbourne – What are Your Options
As one of Melbourne’s foremost authorities on shipping containers, we pride ourselves in offering high-quality 20ft and smaller container sizes at unbeatable prices. Our locally-owned and operated company has been satisfying the storage needs of Melbourne residents since 2002. We have a comprehensive selection of industry-standard containers at your disposal with transparent pricing, no hidden fees, and easy access, but what about 40ft shipping containers in Melbourne?
While 40ft shipping containers are the largest standard-sized containers on the market, and they offer substantial storage capacity, we’ve found that our customers frequently prefer the versatility and convenience of two 20ft shipping containers.
Pros and Cons: 20ft vs 40ft Shipping Containers
When you need the space, a 40ft shipping container certainly delivers that in spades. However, for residential and business use, the gains in storage volume come with significant logistical issues. For example, the truck size needed to transport a 40 ft container means that many residential and commercial areas will be inaccessible.
A fully loaded 40ft shipping container is incredibly heavy, which means that it requires more than a standard forklift or crane to move it around. Unfortunately, the type of forklift required cannot easily be transported on the same truck as the storage containers.
Your storage needs may be more extensive than what a 10ft or 20ft container can supply. Here’s why our 20ft containers offer a viable solution to get the storage space you need while eliminating the logistical challenges.
Size and Accessibility – Despite a 40ft shipping container offering ample space, its large size and length limit maneuverability in residential and commercial areas, whereas our two 20ft containers can easily access these streets. You simply won’t be able to fit a 40ft container in front of the average suburban home. Fortunately, we can provide an equivalent amount of storage without the difficulties of restricted access and maneuverability.
Durability – 40ft shipping containers in Melbourne, or Forty-foot Equivalent Units (FEUs), and 20ft containers, known as Twenty-foot Equivalent Units (TEUs), are built to the same tough standards. Both are manufactured from robust corrugated steel and are watertight, weatherproof, and extremely secure. Many of our clients have found that using two of our high cube 20ft containers in lieu of the 40ft options is the most flexible option.
Weight and Capacity – Melbourne shipping containers for hire are designed to carry specific types of cargo based on factors like weight distribution and volume. For heavy cargo and dense items like machinery and construction materials, 20ft containers are often more suitable. Despite the size difference, a 40ft container is not rated to handle twice the weight of a 20ft container.
40ft Shipping Container Costs When Using 2 x 20ft Containers
When your storage needs demand a 40ft shipping container hire, you will need to factor in the cost of hiring 2 or more 20ft shipping containers. At 1800 We Store It, our goal is to deliver safe, secure storage at the most affordable prices around Melbourne. We aim to simplify this by presenting the full cost of our containers on our website, with no hidden fees or charges.
While a 40ft container generally has a higher price range than a 20ft unit, two of our 20ft containers can be more efficient and budget-friendly simply because they are easier to move around. This makes them especially suited for mobile or temporary storage solutions in residential or commercial areas. If your storage needs are more modest, our 8ft and 10ft containers are available at affordable rates.
As one of Melbourne’s leading container solutions, we make it easy to hire shipping containers for home, office, or business. If you are a business or homeowner looking for 40ft shipping containers in Melbourne, consider 20ft containers as a better option.
