How to choose a container

When you buy a container it's very important to select the model that will suit you best. So you should spend some time for making a proper choice.

The main container's characteristics that should be taken into consideration during container's choice are their size, type of a container, type and shape of doors and windows in it and a system of fastening.

The size of a container is defined according to its future use and the types of loads it will be used for. The usual choice of our customers is a 40-feet container that has enough space for huge loads and bulk and can be used as a spacious storage for their warehousing. Such containers are equipped with a wide-open gates for a convenience of uploading.

If there is no necessity in transportations of huge loads you can choose a smaller 20-feet model. Its compact size makes it available to lower the time of reloading that speeds up their transportation. Such containers can be also used as warehouses and workmen's shelter.

What about fastenings they all comply with the international ISO standard and allow to transport such a container by many means of transportation including sea, railroad and automotive transport. However, if ou are going to transport some brittle loads it is better to choose a container with the additional inner fastenings that will help to preserve the integrity of transported loads.
