General Purpose Shipping containers have come a long way since their first incarnation as ‘trucks without wheels’, but the original, general purpose shipping containers that can be seen on ships and trains and at ports such as Port Melbourne are still the most-used, most popular containers around today. Portable, stackable, easily transferred from ship to truck to train to warehouse, they can withstand wind, heat, rain and years of travel – and then they’re often converted into something else for a few more years’ service!
At Shipping Containers Melbourne, we have a wide range of new and used shipping containers that you can buy, hire or modify. General purpose containers are available in 10 foot, 20 foot, and 40 foot sizes and all come equipped with double doors that open to a full 270°. High cube and side loading containers are also available. These are ideal for either shipping or converting into other purposes. Conversions can range from the simple (shelves, windows, doors, air-vents, air-conditioning etc) to the magnificent (as a quick look around the internet, and even our own special projects page will show.)
