Let’s tick off a few more interesting stats of what fits inside a 20-foot shipping container:
About 50,000 bananas (depending on their size)
200 full-sized mattresses
400 flat-screen televisions
Around 60 fridges
A large car or 2 small cars
Over 1000 25kg bags of cement
Almost half a million eggs
9600 wine bottles
You’re starting to get the idea. It’s actually quite amazing what will fit inside one standard 20ft shipping container.
Of course, what you can squeeze into the container also depends largely on the shapes of the items and how well organised your packing of the container is. The use of packing materials, such as blankets and protective sponge, will also need to be factored in.
The 20-foot shipping container is the most popular for good reason. It’s much cheaper to hire and transport than a 40-foot container, and on most occasions, the 20ft container is comfortably roomy enough for most peoples’ requirements.
