53ft Storage Containers vs. 40ft Storage Containers

By August 7th, 2012 About Containers, Creative Uses 3 Comments

53ft container rental for retailers

Is a 40ft storage container big enough? For businesses needing larger storage containers, a 53 foot storage unit may be a better value or fit. When making your decision, it is important to consider the amount of product you need to store, the monthly rental cost and how long you plan to keep the storage container on-site. Even though the 53’ containers are a bit more per month, the additional storage capacity they provide may be worth the monthly investment.

The 40′ containers are made from heavy duty corrugated steel panels. They have an outside dimension of 40’L x 8’W x 8’6”H. Our 40ft storage containers are an ideal long term or short term solution for additional on-site storage. They are typically used for farm equipment, commercial storage, construction equipment, retail purposes and more. If you are a smaller company the 40’ container may be suitable for all your storage needs. One of the obvious reasons for going with the 40’ storage container is the monthly rental cost.

A 53ft storage container is constructed very similarly to a 40’ container. They are considered a high cube container. High cube storage containers are 9ft 6in tall on the outside. They are 1’ ft taller than standard height containers. They are also 8ft 6in wide, making them 6in wider than regular containers as well. A 53’ cargo container will give you approximately 50% more interior storage space than a standard 40’ container.

53 ft Storage Containers – What are the advantages and Ideal Businesses

The ideal businesses that would require the 53ft containers are often times large retailers or outlet stores. Mega warehouse space retailers that have excessive amounts of inventory overflow would be ideal candidates. Some of those might include Wal-Mart, Costco, Sam’s Club, BJ’s, Kmart, etc. One of the biggest advantages the 53’ containers have over the 40’ storage containers is their storage capacity. You can fit two pallets side by side inside these containers… making them perfect for these large warehouse and retail businesses.
