10-foot sea containers - advantages and uses
10 foot sea containers can be extremely useful when you don't have a lot of space or don't need to transport or store a lot of items. They are exactly half the size of 20-foot containers, which is about half the size of a one-car garage.
Their size and portability make 10ft containers popular for small spaces for safe storage, but they can also be modified for many different uses. Because 10' containers are not common in commercial shipping, many used containers are made by cutting 20' containers in half and adding doors and side walls. However, only specially manufactured certified 10ft containers can be used on ships, while a shortened container cannot be certified for transport.
