20ft shipping containers are commonly used for car storage, but are more suited to longer term storage than frequent use. This is because shipping containers are 8ft wide, which leaves very little room to open the doors on an average sized car once inside. Unless you are very small or agile enough to exit via the sun roof, getting out the car inside an 8ft wide garage is a struggle. To resolve this, Containers Direct have come up with a design that combines the advantages of shipping container with those of a traditional garage structure. We've added extra width and doors that are easy to use, yet unrivalled in terms of security.

The CarTainer®2010 is 20ft long and 10ft wide, making it suitable for larger cars. The internal length is 19ft 3in, and the internal width 9ft 8in, so please check the size of your vehicle before purchase.

Optional extras

To enhance the performance of your CarTainer® 2010, upon request we can add a number of additional features from the list below:*Although the vents in the container will aid dryness, if you are planning to store your car in the garage for extended periods of time, we recommend using a condensation treatment such as Grafotherm to aid dryness, or ply lining and insulation which is the complete solution to condensation.
