At Shipping Containers Adelaide we have both new and used general purpose, high cube and side opening containers available, in 10-foot, 20-foot, and 40-foot sizes. These three containers are the most commonly used for shipping, storage and converting. We can also modify and customise your shipping containers to your exact specifications, from simple items like extra doors, windows, shelves, air-vents, and painting, to complete conversions like roadshow exhibits, accommodation, container cafes, shops and bars.
Most commonly seen stacked high on a ship or in the dockland area around Port of Adelaide, general purpose shipping containers are – as the name suggests – the most well-known of the various shipping containers available. Simple and versatile, exceptionally strong and nigh-on-indestructible, they are designed to withstand hundreds of long sea or rail journeys, as well as the constant transfer from ship to truck to train to warehouse (and vice versa). This strength and versatility of the general purpose containers makes them popular for purposes other than shipping as well.
