These new 40ft high cube tunnel containers are the same as a standard high cube container, but with a set of double cargo doors at each end. Much like the standard height 40ft tunnel containers we offer they are popular for a variety of applications including boiler rooms, stores needed double end access, even garages or diggers, forklifts or ‘higher’ cars!
Commonly come in green and blue options, these tunnels are called ‘one trip’ because they have only had one trip over from China. They can have a dent here or there consistent with that initial trip but otherwise these containers should be considered in top condition. You can read more about this in our recent news article ‘what to expect from a one trip shipping container‘. They come with a lock box of each set of doors as standard.
These units are not in widespread use in the shipping industry, and as a result only available as a new option in a factory made, export ready spec.
For export use we typically find these are also of interest for specialist applications, but as with all our new containers you can expect a circa 5 year CSC plate and the container to meet all international shipping standards.
For site storage use we can also commonly offer a refurbished option that may come in as a more cost effective options depending on your use. For example if this container is intended for static storage use at your site, and you do not intend to lift it loaded with goods we might offer a unit we have fabricated that will save you around £1000, but as we’ve made it in our yard it wont’ be suitable to lift when loaded with very heavy weights and should be used fore static storage use only.
In the case of refurbishments and customisations we can also fit additional doors into the sides as well or undertake other work such as doors or windows As a reasonably specialised item we typically only take a few deliveries per year – so stock and availability constantly shift.
Technical Information for 40ft Shipping Containers
Please note whilst we have tried to be as accurate as possible, some measurements (notably internal measurements) can vary slightly with the development and modernisation of manufacturing techniques over time with different manufacturers of equipment and with different additional features. If you have a specific sized problem or item to load that’s near these dims please double check with us in advance and if needs be we will get someone to measure your exact container before delivery.
