Open Side Containers

Side opening shipping containers are containers that can be accessed via additional doors positioned on the side. side containers offer superior access to stored goods. The doors simply fold out of the way in use and then return into their closed position for transport and secure storage.

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

Royal Wolf’s open side door shipping containers 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 tilt tray truck is ideal for delivery to many locations. The container is loaded on the truck in the direction requested ensuring the unit will be in the correct position once delivered. The truck must reverse to the delivery point where the tray of the truck tilts to the ground and the container slides off the back.

  • 6m Tilt Tray Clearance Requirements:
  • Height – 4.8m (16ft)
  • Width – 3m (10ft)
  • Length – 18m (59ft)


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.
