These one trip / 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 available in green and blue options. 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 Â£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 for static storage use only.
However, these one trip shipping containers always offer excellent long term value and they are also a lot neater and smarter than a typical refurbished shipping container. If this unit will be on display for customers or visitors to your site, or if you want the best very long term value then a one trip container is likley a good option for you.
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.
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.
