20ft Shipping Container to Hire and for Sale

WHY OUR 20FT SHIPPING CONTAINERS ARE THE RIGHT SIZE FOR MOST CUSTOMERS

TITAN Containers has been in the shipping containers business for more than 35 years. In that time, we’ve learned a lot about big metal boxes!

And if we had to stock a single size, it would be 20ft. That’s because a 20ft shipping container is:

  • Perfectly sized for most business needs. It’s the length of roughly 1.5 cars – so it’s big without being too big.
  • Generously proportioned for private customers. It offers a huge amount of storage space, and the contents of entire homes will often fit in a 20ft container.
  • Great value for money.
  • Widely available in multiple colours and conditions across Ireland.

Trust us. If you have the space, a 20ft shipping container is almost always the way to go.

THE WIDEST CHOICE OF COLOURS AND CONDITIONS

As with all container companies, when you rent or buy from TITAN Containers, delivery is a significant part of the rental or sale price. If you want a specific container that is only available in a depot hundreds of kilometres away, the price will rise.

The good news when renting 20ft containers (or buying them) from us is that we have so many of them at our 20+ depots in Ireland and across the UK there is a high chance we’ll have the exact colour you need. And if you do want to buy a 20ft container, we’ll probably have the condition you’re looking for locally, too.

OUR 20FT SHIPPING CONTAINER DIMENSIONS

Buying or renting a 20ft container needs a moment’s pause to make sure you have enough space for it. Knowing the external dimensions of a 20ft shipping container can be a big help here:

External dimensions

6.06m (length) x 2.44m (width) x 2.60m (height)

But how much space is inside? Our 20ft containers have an internal floor area of 13.51m2 and are capable of holding 11 standard Euro pallets. The precise internal dimensions are as follows:

Internal dimensions

5.90m (length) x 2.29m (width) x 2.38m (height)

WHAT CAN YOU FIT IN A 20FT SHIPPING CONTAINER?

A better question: what can’t you fit in a 20ft container! Seriously – there are very few individual items that are longer than 20ft and wider than 7.5ft. The average car is just under 6ft wide – meaning you could fit a full car inside and still have around half a car’s length for extra stuff.

That means a 20ft container works in many cases as:

  • Industrial storage space – store anything from large machinery to spare parts and even whole vehicles, including forklifts.
  • Commercial lock-ups – stash large volumes of stock or supplies.
  • Private storage – if you have room in your garden or drive, renting a 20ft shipping container gives you masses of extra space.

While many clients choose to rent 20ft shipping containers from us because of the great rates and flexibility we offer, buying means you can customise your container however you see fit. We also offer bespoke 20ft container conversions.
