The U-Move Standard

The internal size of your container will help you determine if your goods will fit in the container, while the external size is important for the location or surrounding area your container will be placed. With the outside area a few more things should be considered, like will the box be able to conveniently be picked up or moved around if needed? This means you’ll need to ensure there is ample space above and around the container.

How We Determine Container Sizes

The external length should be measured from the farthest point along the longest side of the container. The external width should be measured from the narrowest side (unless the container has been modified).

You can then measure the external height from the bottom of the frame to the top of the frame.

To determine the internal measurements of a shipping container, and how much you can store or transport in it, the same steps can be taken as above, except from the inside of the container.
