Container sizes & weight

Container dimensions, sizes & weight are always an important factor when deciding what type of container to use in a given project. Here, the purpose of use is of course of crucial importance – is it a custom solution that must be rebuilt and arranged for a specific purpose, or do you need a container with extra height for transporting oversized goods? At DC-Supply, we offer many sizes of containers – for example, you can buy or rent both new and used standard containers in sizes from the very small 6-foot containers to the large 40-foot containers. Concerning custom design of containers, container sizes & weight are of crucial importance – and are of course always part of the considerations when we calculate, design and produce a solution.
