Frequently Asked Questions

What is a bolster shipping container?

Answer: A bolster shipping container is a specialised type of flat-rack container. It is not as wide at the base as a standard flat rack and it has no end walls. Bolsters are commonly used for transporting heavy machinery and other massive items that don’t need protection from the weather.

What is the original purpose of shipping containers?
Answer: Steel shipping containers were first used to enhance the efficiency of operations within the transportation and shipping industries. However, today, these highly durable containers are used for everything from constructing underground living quarters and mobile cafes, to temporary office sites and solar-powered gardening spaces.
What are 10ft shipping containers used for?

Answer: Our 10ft shipping containers can be used for numerous purposes. They provide weather-tight, thief-proof security for lawn mowers, bicycles, tools, garden and pool equipment, seasonal items and more. They are constructed with corrosion-resistant steel and provide maintenance-free storage for decades.
