The storage container
These strict conditions do not apply to storage containers. A storage container can be any length, any size and built to any specification. As long as it's dry and secure it can do the job. The majority of large storage containers on the market are used shipping containers, either original (which give the best value), or modified (which increases choice). They may be cut down
to any size, or have a variety of alterations that improve their function - such as door changes, insulation and lining, shelving and electrics. The possibilities for adapting shipping containers for storage are vast.
Many people prefer a different style door for storage use, to the traditional corrugated shipping container type. This is because shipping container doors are notoriously heavy and awkward to use, and where frequent access to items is required, flat panel doors are more convenient.
