These new (one trip) 40ft high cube side opening shipping containers offer excellent capacity, easy flexible access and a superb level of security. They are ideal if you need to store pallets, large oversize items or for emergency response setups where you may need access to a variety of kit at very short notice.
This container is on offer as a new option only, this is a relatively new design and the shipping lines do not use them in their own fleets, hence there are no major sources for us to get used equipment and we have to wait to see if any of the customers we have supplied to date, then want to sell one back when they are finished.
These shipping containers are fitted with 1 huge set of side doors and a single set of end opening doors. This configuration is ideal to ensure that you can access to your goods quickly and easily, especially if you have a large turnover of goods and want to rotate them frequently without the need for expensive warehouse space. Some ranges offered do come with 2x sets of side doors and a central pillar also.
We currently only have units available ex our Southampton depot, so please contact us to ensure we still have this available and for price information. We get very occasional stocks in for these units and pre-ordering is advised.
All of our containers will be structurally sound and are all built from corten (COR-TEN A grade) steel – an anti-rust alloy of steel. When rust does form on corten steel it is non-porous (it won’t let water through the rust) meaning the metal underneath the surface rust is protected, which in turn means that these containers will last an extremely long time.
As with all one trip shipping containers they have come in on a boat from China, and may have 1 or 2 small imperfections consistent with this first trip, but on the whole will be in very good condition. You can read more about this in our news article ‘what to expect from a one trip shipping container‘
We have a superb range of other side opening containers, including 4 other types of 20ft side opening shipping container. Please feel free to check out our post on the different types of side opening shipping containers that are available if you want to check out the options.
