These new 20ft high cube shipping containers are ideal for site storage or export use. However, at a premium over our standard height (8ft 6 high) containers these are recommended if you have to store or ship an oversize item that won’t fit inside a standard height container. Links to other popular 20ft ranges shown at the bottom of the page.
You can see the full internal and external dimensions by clicking the technical tab above. They are very popular with building sites wanting to securely and anonymously store plant and machinery and also for conversion into boiler rooms or biomass plants.
Unfortunately, the major shipping lines & leasing companies do not use these containers in their own container fleets, and as such used or refurbished 20ft high cube containers are extremely rare. We can make a refurbished 20ft high cube to spec but these come in only a snip less than the new price. Quite frankly though, the quality difference is significant enough that we recommend the new build units nearly every time.
As these 20ft high cube shipping containers are reasonably scarce, we have a range of suppliers that offer a slight difference in shades of green and blue and the numbers of vents and other minor specifications will vary. This gives us the best possible availability for an item, and you can be assured that everything we sell will meet the specification offered and meet all international standards. If there is a specific feature you need or want on your container, let us know and we can work to ensure we offer you an option that meets your own requirements.
All our containers are checked in our depot prior to sale and are guaranteed wind & watertight. As with all one trip containers that are built in China and shipped in, there may be 1 or 2 small imperfections (minor dents, paint scrapes, tire marks on the floor inside from a fork lift unloading etc.) but will be in otherwise immaculate condition. If a container took a major smash on its first trip it would be sold elsewhere on this site as a damaged unit and not as a normal new (one trip) container. You can read more info on what to expect from a one trip shipping container from our recent news article.
Viewings of specific units prior to purchase can be arranged in the majority of our depots, please aim to give us 24-hours notice of a viewing where possible so we can ensure we have a container out of the stacks and ready for you to view.
