One of the advantages of 20ft International Standards Organization (ISO) shipping container is that you will know what you are receiving. ISO shipping containers are manufactured with identical size specification in terms of exterior height, exterior width and exterior length. Conditions of steel containers vary from new "One Trip" units, IICL-5, Cargo Worthy, Wind and Water Tight and "As Is".

The 20ft shipping container have become the standard for portable jobsite, personal storage and commercial storage needs. A 20ft container has 1,165cu.ft. of interior space and can transport up to 62,150lbs. Each 20 foot container for sale are comprised of 14-gauge corrugated steel and marine grade plywood flooring with a safe and secure cargo door on one end of the container.

Another advantage is the 20 foot container can fit in a single parking space and be transported and delivered with a much smaller and maneuverable vehicle. Typical rule of thumb for delivery space needed for any container is twice the length of the container plus 10ft. Adequate height and width need to be taken into consideration for delivery as well.
