Spotlight on- Exclusive 40’ Shipping Containers
Note that the word “exclusive” simply indicates you are utilizing a full container (FCL) for yourself and not sharing. The container is exclusively yours.
Dimensions- The internal dimensions of a 40-foot container Interior Dimensions (in feet): 39′ 6” long x 7′ 9” wide x 7′ 10” high. Internal Dimensions (in meters): 12.025m long x 2.352m wide x 2.393m high., allowing for the accommodation of 20 standard pallets or 24 Euro pallets without stacking, depending on the type of pallet used.
Home Size- It’s important to note that everyone’s situation is unique, so the amount of space needed may vary. However, in general, a 40-foot container can hold the household belongings of a two-to-four-bedroom apartment, condo, or house. If more space is required, SDC can use a 40-foot “high cube” container that provides around 500 extra cubic feet of interior volume.
Vehicles- If you plan to ship a vehicle in your container along with your household goods, it’s important to note that typically, cars take up about the first 13 to 18 feet of space in the container.
