#1 Shipping containers are bigger than they look – they probably offer more storage space than your garage
Shipping containers may seem like a bit of an industrial solution to your storage woes, but their benefits are many and varied.

In fact, with some careful and precise packing, we reckon you could just about move everything you own in a shipping container.
#2 With solid steel construction and sturdy doors, shipping containers offer very secure storage
If you’re going to put a large proportion of your belongings in the one place, you want that place to be secure. And if you use a shipping container for storage, security is exactly what you’ll get! Most shipping containers are constructed from steel. They have solid doors, powerful hinges and almost impenetrable locking mechanisms. All you need to bring is a solid padlock, and your possessions will be strictly off limits!
