Extra Long Containers


The longest containers available (and transportable) are used 45 ft and 53 ft containers.  53 ft long containers are also an extra 6” wide, providing over 60% more internal storage capacity than a 40 ft standard height container.  These containers are specifically designed for truck & rail transport, and are typically retired from the rail lines after at least 10 years of use.  They tend to have less corrosion than a typical used container, as they spend less time at sea.  Features on these units sometimes vary, and aluminum is sometimes incorporated into the construction.

Popular for the storage of extra-long items, or as a practical alternative to buying a 2nd container if your storage items won’t fit in a 40 ft container.  Available in limited quantities and locations; please contact us for availability and pricing.
