Introducing our range of one trip (new) 20ft high cube side opening shipping containers. These have only come into the UK market in the last few years.
Ideal for quick and easy pallet access, many customers like the additional 30cm / 1ft of internal height to allow them to stack pallets or store even bigger items than can’t fit into our standard height 20ft side opening units. These high cube containers can also take most common sizes of fork lift should you want to run one in and out of your container. These units themselves can be stacked if needed to allow super easy super secure storage options for industrial operations.
Built to full cargo spec these 20ft high cube side opening shipping containers have a circa 5 year CSC plate for export use which can be renewed if needed (subject to suitability – much like a car MOT).
For static site storage use these are ideal for storage or items you want to get at quickly and easily, or for the storage of oversize items that simply can’t fit through the end doors of a container. Typically available in green or blue options, we can always repaint these any colour if required, or modify or convert these for a specific use.
These units come with a circa 28mm thick marine treated plywood floor throughout and are usually available with floor mounted lashing points (for strapping down your cargo). High security lock boxes (padlock covers) are supplied on each set of double doors.
Stored across the UK, these are specialist items and stocks can be sporadic. We can move these to any of our other UK locations at short notice. Viewings are usually available by arrangement.
These side 9ft 6 high 20ft high cube side opening shipping containers come in at a fair premium over the standard height 8ft 6 high alternative, so if you don’t need the extra height we recommend checking out the standard height range of 20ft side opening shipping containers.
You can also check out our video showing the door operation on a 20ft side opening container below: (This video shows an 8ft 6 high model, and widths of the ‘inner and outer’ doors on the long side will vary depending on the factory that built them, but the way the doors operate is the same between different factories)
Please be advised that these are sold as ‘one trip containers’ and are not brand new. All of our shipping containers are built in the factory in China or the far east and have done 1 trip into the UK since new. Some minor cosmetic wear may be evident from this initial trip. Minor dents and scrapes are reasonably common, as are tire marks inside your container where a fork lift truck or similar may have unloaded goods from inside the container.
All of our containers are checked over in our UK depots before sale, and are sold with our wind and watertight guarantees. You can read more on what wear we consider acceptable in our recent 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.
