New and Used 40 foot Tunnel Containers for Sale – UK Delivery

These Tunnel Containers are available in a choice of colours. We have new and used containers available, just ask for details.
External Dimensions: 40ft long x 8ft wide x 8ft 6in high.
Tunnel containers are equipped with two sets of cargo doors; one set at the front and one set at the
end. The easy access provided by two sets of cargo doors makes this container type ideal for storing
palletised equipment, bulky items and for easily managing stock flow. One of the things we often
hear about 40ft containers is that it can be difficult to access items at the back of the unit. Tunnel
containers eradicate this problem completely with their dual access points. Tunneltainers are often
used as temporary bridges during construction and are commonly used on self-storage sites with a
fitted steel bulkhead to split the unit into two 20ft containers, or to use as large multi-stores.
