45ft Used Shipping Containers

45ft Used Shipping Containers for Sale
The 45ft shipping container is the giant of all containers, giving an extra 5ft in length over the commonly available 40ft container, and an additional foot in height on the high cube model. Most 45ft used shipping containers are also "pallet wide", meaning the internal width allows for two standard 4ft pallets to be accommodated in the container side by side.

However, the used 45ft shipping container is quite hard to come by in the UK, due to their rarity and excellent value for money they offer per square foot.
