20' Insulation

Product addons


The 20′, or 6m, insulated container is our most popular rental container for storage use. This container model is your choice if you need storage space with no moisture problems. The thick 40–60mm PIR insulation prevents moisture from condensing inside your container, keeping what’s inside dry. We use PIR insulation for the walls, door and ceiling of our insulated containers. The interior walls are white steel sheets, so this bright space is not only easy to keep clean but it also keep humidity out. PIR insulation does not turn mouldy or lose its insulation capacity and, with less insulation, offers up to 50% better insulation results than wool, enabling maximal use of internal dimensions for storage We supply our containers with mouldings that provide a stylish finishing touch to the carefully designed whole.

The 6m insulated container’s standard accessories include double doors at the end, and disc valves for ventilation. We can also add other accessories, such as lighting, heating and shelves.  We recommend a radiator for winter storage, with the heating unit equipped with a thermostat maintaining a steady temperature.  The container’s floor is insulated from below with 50mm XPS, making the floor’s load capacity the container’s design value, that is, more than 25,000kg. This also makes loading with a pallet jack easy as there is no extra threshold. Unless otherwise stated, all our rental containers are either new or in class A.

For international freight purposes, we can offer SOC insulated containers.  These SOC containers are suitable for international transport like normal containers. They are equipped with a valid CSC plate+stamp and meet ISO requirements. Please note that the floors of SOC containers are not insulated and that ventilation is implemented with the container’s own ventilation valves.

  • What does "handling fee" mean?

    Every time a container, whether it is a container for lease or sale, is moved around a depot, it requires a lift. The handling fee is a one-time cost that covers moving the container around in the depot areas. The fee is only applicable when you lease a container or have a one-way deal with us. We never charge you a handling fee when you buy a container outright, so there are no hidden costs.

  • What do the different container delivery options mean?

    It does not matter if you buy or lease a container; MC Containers can deliver it to you. We use a variety of container delivery methods, including the following container trucking methods:

    • Chassis / CPT (Carriage Paid To)
    • On ground / DAP (Delivered At Place)
    • FOT DEPOT / FCA (Free Carrier)

    Chassis delivery means that your new, used or modified container will be delivered to the destination on a container chassis. However, this service does not include removing it from the chassis. If you decide to buy a container, it is your responsibility to organize a crane or another piece of machinery to offload it. This is the most common container delivery method in Europe due to the better availability of trucks and cost effective rates.

    On Ground Deliveries are done with a truck that can drop the container to the ground with it’s own equipment. Normally, the container delivery is done using a side loader or a truck equipped with a crane. The standard delivery price includes 30-45 min of unloading time per container and any extra time is billed at an hourly rate. If you don’t have a crane available or cannot organize one then this is the best and only option for you.

    FOT DEPOT means Free on Truck in depot. With this container delivery method, the buyer is responsible for organizing a pickup from the chosen container depot. The seller will organize a lift to the chassis in the container depot, so you will not need a crane or side loader for the pickup.

  • Financial Lease

    Would you like to buy a container, but the price is just too much for your budget to pay in one payment? No worries, together with our partner we offer a flexible financial container lease service. We offer our clients the possibility of buying containers through a financial lease plan. This enables fast delivery with little capital investment. This payment type is only possible for clients with a European VAT ID.

    • Fast handling times and delivery of containers
    • Staggered affordable payments


    To order a shipping container through our lease plan service, the minimum order must be at least 500€, and the person leasing must have a European VAT number.

  • How long can a container be used?

    Shipping containers are made of corten steel. This sturdy material enables them to withstand extreme circumstances (wind, water, fire, ice, salt, sun) and any possible rough handling. A shipping container is used from 5-14 years for shipping; after this, they are released and used for other purposes, such as storage containers or modified container units for food and offices.

    Containers that are not used for shipping are perfectly suitable to be used as storage containers. If taken care of, a used shipping container can be used for storage up to 10 years. It is also possible to extend the storage container’s use by regular maintenance, such as, painting, patching holes, changing seals, fixing the floor and taking care of or changing twist locks.

    New shipping containers are usually brought to Europe from China. A new container can last anywhere up to 30 years when used as storage as long as it is looked after properly.
