Manufactured from a standard container (usually 20ft or 40ft) - but with two sets of double doors (one at each end). Tunnel Containers are typically constructed by removing the solid end of the container and welding a new set of double doors in place. A tunnel container is great when additional access is required.

A tunnel-container is manufactured from a standard shipping container but has double doors at both ends (double ender). From a standard 20 ft or 40 ft shipping container, the solid end of the container is cut off leaving it open, then a new set of double doors is welded in place creating a two-way access. A 'tunnel' can also be constructed from a high cube container, for clients needing the additional height.
A tunnel shipping container can be used for a wide range of possibilities and are popular for a variety of reasons
They are typically manufactured from either 20ft or 40ft shipping containers, but they can also be bespoke built from a 10ft shipping container. Tunnel Containers can also be manufactured using high cube versions for when you need the extra height (9ft 6" rather than the standard 8ft 6").
Tunnel containers are available in both NEW and USED condition.
Choosing a Tunnel shipping container is down to the need of the client, they are easily converted for multiple uses from storage to personnel bridges but they can be converted into a wide range of conversions. A great reason to choose a tunnel shipping container is they are ideal for storage as they can be loaded from both sides and making it easier to get stored goods out from either side without struggling to get goods from the back of a standard shipping container.
Tunnel containers can be converted in many different ways, we can convert to your specifications. We have previously modified tunnel containers to install lighting and side windows. Due to their construction material (corten steel) tunnel containers are ideal for secure storage, or modification projects where a strong shell is required. If you would like to see some conversions that we have previously done check out our conversions page.
Please Note - Unless otherwise specified during the ordering process tunnel containers will be delivered on a HIAB Delivery Truck and the shipping container will be lifted into position by our driver using the HIAB crane. Please ensure there is enough space for the container to be planted.
*You can also collect OR if you have lifting facilities on site there are other delivery methods. Please let us know if you can lift the container off our transport when you make an enquiry as this will likely reduce the delivery charge.
