10 ft shipping containers to hire or buy

The 10 ft shipping container is a versatile option that offers a more compact solution for transporting and storing goods. About half the size of a single garage, these containers are great for when space is in high demand. Alternatively, if the items you need to store are smaller in size.

A rare and unique type of shipping container, they can be used for multiple reasons. Including an extra office space, workshop, garden shed or the ultimate storage solution. Here at ContainerCo, we offer both new and used 10 ft containers for sale NZ wide. These are available for sale in Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch, the Waikato religion and containers NZ-wide.


Almost exactly half the length of a standard 20 ft container for sale, these containers are great for small, compact items. Such as garden tools, shelving, bikes and even furniture. To put it into more visual terms – they will comfortably fit a single bed, a desk and a set of drawers. This makes them a great option for that little bit of extra living or office space.

To put it into more technical terms, the external dimensions of these containers are 3 metres in length, 2.44 metres in width and 2.44 metres in height. The internal dimensions measure 2.9 metres in length, 2.35 in width and 2.39 in height.

All containers feature the standard attributes. Including full, durable steel construction, forklift pockets for easy transportation and lashing points for cargo. The containers can come with a single door or double door. Windows and sliding doors can also be added to further personalise the space.


The humble 10 ft container is a very useful container that has a multitude of helpful features and benefits. The first of which is the size. Compact and square in shape – they can be placed on smaller sections of land and backyard clearings. This makes them very versatile in terms of function.

It also benefits from enhanced mobility. Smaller in size, this also means that the container is lighter and easier to manoeuvre or transport. It can even fit on smaller vehicles.

Made from high-quality, durable steel – these containers will last a lifetime. With only general maintenance necessary for complete weatherproofing with seals offering protection from wind and water.

When should you buy a 10 ft shipping container?

If you’re are unsure whether this size of the container is right for you, it is important to consider the purpose it is going to be used for. If you have only a few items you need to store then this option is the most beneficial.

A few of the reasons this container might be right for you include:

  • When space is limited – Occupying the same space as a single car park, these containers can easily fit on your driveway. This means that a large amount of space is not necessary. Container hire can also offer an easy temporary solution.
  • Manoeuvrability is necessary – Being able to transport the container to and from locations using a smaller vehicle is a great benefit. Making this container especially beneficial for residential areas.
  • You need a compact, modified space – These containers can be modified for your own individual needs. Whether to include plumbing, electricity, insulation or ventilation to create your very own portable workshop or office. At ContainerCo, we are the experts in container modification in NZ.

These containers can even be purchased as a high cube for that little bit of extra vertical space and storage.
