Frequently asked questions

10ft containers are just as versatile as standard sized shipping containers (20ft) with the only difference being their capacity. The smaller size arguably makes them a more practical choice as they are able to be placed in a wider range of spaces while still offering good storage.

How much does it cost to rent a 10ft shipping container in NZ?

The cost of renting a 10ft shipping container will depend on a number of factors including the length of the hire period and the grade of the shipping container you are hiring.

How much can you fit in a 10ft shipping container?

A 10ft shipping container offers approximately 560 cubic feet of storage space, making it suitable for a variety of purposes. In terms of capacity, a 10ft container can typically hold 2 standard pallets side by side or accommodate roughly 60-70 cubic meters of cargo. This size is ideal for smaller storage needs, such as storing household items during a move, holding inventory for a small business, or serving as a compact pop-up shop or office space.

We dealt with Reuben right from start from initial enquiry through to delivery. Reuben was excellent to work with from guiding us through the process of choosing the 10ft high cube, on confirmation for navigating our neighbour’s slightly inclined driveway for access & delivery and through to after sales.
