These one trip (new) 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 style / range of shipping container is on offer as a one trip (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, or if you have any large bulky items to store that wont’ fit through the end doors of your shipping container. Some ranges offered do come with 2x sets of side doors and a central pillar also.
This is a relatively new design of shipping container and we are finding the exact specs on different ranges vary slightly. If you need any specific features or specs to your container please let us know. Otherwise we will usually look to quote the nearest or most cost effective option for you as this will be the best option for most customers.
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.
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‘
