Product Description

These one trip (new) 40ft high cube shipping containers offer terrific long term value for any storage applications. Compared to a used container they will last significantly longer, they look a lot sharper and will hold a better resale value should you want to sell these on in 10-20 years. All new 40ft high cube shipping containers come with a circa 5 year CSC plate if being used for export, a circa 28mm thick marine plywood floor throughout, and heavy duty cargo doors with a rubber seal.

These 40ft high cube shipping containers offer fantastic quality and they look clean and sharp, ideal for use in any yard where you want to keep a clean tidy appearance. All of these containers come with a high security lock box (padlock cover) as standard.

The high cube option is popular with customers who need the additional height, or who may want to run their forklift truck in and out of the shipping container. (fork truck sizes vary of course, but many more models can fit inside a high cube container versus a standard height container)

We typically recommend you to seriously consider a new container if looking for a permanent or very long term (10 years +) storage option. At this sort of time span, they start to offer best overall value.

Typically, available in a red, brown or grey. Dark green (RAL6007) and dark blue (RAL5013) or medium blue (RAL5010) may come at a premium a price.

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.


Not all of our new 40ft high cube shipping containers will include fork pockets – if you need this option please make it extra clear to us to ensure we get you what you need. Fork pockets can only be used to move around a 40ft shipping container when empty. These fork pockets are not designed to be used to lift when loaded with any sort of cargo. If you do lift a 40ft shipping container from the fork pockets when its loaded you will likely bend the container and write it off in a matter of seconds.  They are an option and not a standard feature and not all of our suppliers have fork lift pockets built into their shipping containers any more.
