Side-door opening shipping containers are modified containers that make it easier to access your goods and stored items via other doors positioned on the side. They come standard in a 20-foot size, with a side-opening 40-foot modified shipping container also available upon request. These containers come with solid timber flooring and are naturally equipped with our versatile double doors at the front that open to 270 degrees.

Versatile and Easy to Load

As shipping containers became a popular and practical form of transporting goods and cargo around Canada and the world, more and more ways were found to modify them in order to make them more convenient to use. Loading items through the double doors at the front of the container is not always practical, which is why the side-door opening shipping container was created.

As you would expect from their name, side-door opening shipping containers open up from the side of the container, allowing for wider and easier access, with one whole side of the container opening outwards via two doors. Something that makes loading and unloading significantly easier. Particularly if you’re stacking goods like boxes or crates with a forklift.

Advantages of Side Door Opening Containers

Whilst a side-opening shipping container is certainly advantageous, it does mean that more space is required for the doors to open on the side, which is a consideration you will need to take into account if you are limited to external space. If this is not an issue, however, then the easier access makes a side-opening shipping container a viable and useful option for much quicker loading and unloading.

Conversions For Side-Door Opening Shipping Containers

Along with their shipping and storage benefits, side-door opening shipping containers can also be modified to create unique and unusual container conversions. Site offices, media centers, art galleries, festival stands, coffee shops, pop-up retail shops, and food carts are just some of the many shipping container conversions you can create with a side-opening container
