Product description

The 20′ i.e. 6 m reefer container is our most famous and rented model. This popular reefer container is the perfect choice for you when you need to rent a thermally controlled space. All containers in our rental fleet are equipped with highly reliable machinery from either Carrier or ThermoKing. Their temperature range is adjustable between -25 °C and +25 °C with a one-degree accuracy. In addition, containers come with a standard humidity control which allows you to set the humidity inside the container between 50 and 99%.

The interior surfaces of the container are made of stainless steel and aluminium so they are easy to keep clean. Reefer containers come with a standard flat or T-grid floor, lockable double doors and most of the models in our rental fleet also have LED lights installed. The container requires 5-pole 32A power to operate. The container can be locked from the double doors with a standard padlock. Our container collection also has containers with different doors, such as 1/3 + 2/3 doors or a recessed access door. Oulu Region Environmental Agency has approved Konttivuokraus Oy’s reefer containers as food premises (YMPVI: 4619/712/2008, 30 November 2008). Our containers have also received top marks in the Oiva report on food control. The containers come with a standard 7–12 m power cord.

All of our reefer containers are ISO-compliant with a valid CSC plate, so they are suitable for safe international transport. Please note that a different plug is required for marine transport, so make sure at the ordering stage to indicate this, and we will put in a ship plug. All containers are subjected to a PTI test and they will be washed before being rented. Rental containers can be equipped with a ramp and shelves based on your needs. GPS + remote control system with remote monitoring of temperature logging + setting option is also available for rentals of more than 12 months. Some of the containers in our rental fleet are also 20′ HC (High Cube) models, where the internal height is approx. 30cm higher.

  • 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.
