20 Foot Moving Containers

20 Foot moving containers are our most commonly used container for residential relocation within Australia. The contents of a 3 - 4 bedroom home usually fits comfortably in a 20 foot container.

20 ft HC Container:

✓  The capacity is 38 cubic metres
  The dimensions are: 6 M (Long) | 2.35 M (Wide) | 2.7 M (High) 
✓  Tie off points situated throughout the container for securing your goods
✓  Vapour vents to reduce condensation buildup inside the container


20 ft GP Container:

✓  The capacity is 33 cubic metres
  The dimensions are: 6 M (Long) | 2.35 M (Wide) | 2.35 M (High) 
✓  Tie off points situated at floor and ceiling for securing your goods
✓  Vapour vents to reduce condensation buildup inside the container


40 Foot Moving Containers

40 Foot moving containers are usually used for commercial relocation purposes.
For residential customers requiring a 40 foot container, we usually recommend using two 20 foot containers as they are better equipped for residential moves. This is because 40 foot containers do not container as many tie off points inside, they do not come with packing equipment and the trucks that deliver 40 foot containers are generally not suited to residential locations.
