staticonthesignal asked: Can a small forklift, like one rented from a hardware store, lift empty containers? And are there any reinforced variants of the 10' containers? I'm wondering if they can be used as a storm shelter without being buried.
A rented forklift might be able to lift a 20’ container, but probably not a 40’ container. A 20’ weighs around 4,600 lbs, a 40’ closer to 6,000 lbs.
10’ containers, or “duo-cons” are harder to come by and can be pretty expensive. Reason being, all ports are geared for 20’ or 40’ units, so to move a 10’ unit they weld two units together, which adds a lot more material. Now, to answer your question: You might be able to find a reinforced 10’, but it would be done after market. If it were up to me, I’d take a 20’ and be creative with building banks around it and anchoring it down.
If you still have questions feel free to ask.
