Open Side Containers

At Royal Wolf, our line of open side containers for hire or sale provides customers with convenience and versatility, without sacrificing security and safety. This particular configuration, which has doors running down the long side of the container, gives you all the advantages associated with traditional shipping containers, but with the added benefit of providing easy access to whatever cargo is stored inside.

The open-side storage container doors come with tie-backs to prevent accidental closings. Our quality locks and fittings also give you an extra layer of security. They can can be moved with fork lifts, so you can load them just like you would a standard shipping container.

Royal Wolf’s open sided shipping container can be used to hold shop-front displays or as information or sales kiosks at trade shows or festivals. Some business owners even choose to modify a side opening shipping container and make it one of their primary retail spaces.

Delivery Instructions


The side loader truck delivers the container by picking it up from the trucks tray at each end of the unit and lowering it onto the site directly next to the trucks’ tray. This method is ideal for delivery of containers that need to fit into constricted spaces. It is important to consider which way the container should be loaded onto the truck as it can only be unloaded from the right hand (drivers’) side.

  • 6m Side Loader Clearance Requirements:
  • Height – 4.5m (15ft)
  • Width – 6m (20ft)
  • Length – 10m (33ft)
  • 12m Side Loader Clearance Requirements:
  • Height – 4.5m (15ft)
  • Width – 6m (20ft)
  • Length – 16m (53ft)


This delivery method is used when neither a tilt tray or side loader truck can access the site. Crane truck delivery allows for containers to be delivered over obstructions such as fences.
