Red face Fitting 2 Defender 90's & a 110 in 40ft Container?


I am looking to find out if two Defender 90's and one Defender 110 will fit in a 40ft Container for shipping.

My calculations seem to show that I have only 5 spare inches

- Inside a container is 39"5' (473 inches)

- a 90 is 146.5 inches and a 110 is 175 IN

I wonder if I gain more by taking off the rear lights? I assume the measurement is with the spare tire off

Let 's hear what you think!

Yes have done it many times.

You have to take the spare wheels and carriers of of all the doors though. Also hitches if these are on the same height as the bumper of the next one and the bumper itself if it makes the car longer then a stock one.

By the way, it is easier to take the doors, including spare, out and put them in the back
