Additional Details about Side-Open Containers

General Details about Side-Opening Containers

What are side-open containers used for?

Since they are highly versatile, side-open containers are used by businesses across various industries, including construction, warehousing, and manufacturing. In addition to transporting and storing goods, open-side containers are frequently used for creative building projects. Transform your side-opening container into a classroom, cafe, restaurant, and even office.


What are the benefits of side-open containers?

The major benefit of side-opening shipping containers is their side bi-fold doors that simplify the loading and offloading of goods with a forklift, a tractor, or a bobcat. This feature is particularly useful for unloading the items that are located deep inside the shipping container. 


What are the available open-side container dimensions?

Side-opening containers come in standard 20 ft. and 40 ft. lengths. They are available in regular (8’ 6”) and high cube heights (9’ 6”).


How do you open an open-side container?

The doors of the open-side container are similar to the regular container doors. You can open them either from the inside or the outside, depending on the handles. Some open-side container models even have roller doors instead of their standard counterparts, allowing you to move wide and bulky cargo into the container without getting it stuck

Open-Side Storage Container Information

Open-side containers are some of the most versatile storage units on the market. As a shipping container with side-opening doors on one of the long sides of the container, you no longer need to worry about accidentally loading an important piece of cargo in the back end of a standard container. Easily load and unload heavy machinery from the side of the shipping container.

This container also makes for a great addition for bars and restaurants, retail shops, and shipping container homes based on the already installed door hardware.
