Product Description

These 20ft high cube shipping containers are suitable for storage or so export use, and are a foot taller than standard containers at 9ft 6ins high (externally). 20ft High Cubes are not used by the major shipping lines and leasing companies so are very rarely available as used items, but are brought into the UK for retail sale as one-trip containers. These near-new examples provide an opportunity to buy high cube containers at a substantial discount against one-trip prices.

What is a High Cube Shipping Container?

High Cube shipping containers have the same footprint as standard containers, but are an extra foot high. You can see all dimensions by clicking on the Technical tab above. They were created for shipping large items that will not fit in a standard height container. 40ft high cube containers are commonly used in international shipping, but their 20ft counterparts are rarely used. For this reason they are produced in much smaller numbers, almost entirely for the retail market. Prices are higher than for standard height containers, but for storage of large plant and machinery the extra height can prove essential. When used for conversions the extra height can be used to allow for recessed lighting or raised flooring without compromising ceiling height.

High Cube Shipping Containers for Storage

For most requirements a standard height container will provide the flexible storage that you need. But if what you need to store won’t fit then a high cube container may be exactly what you need! Large machinery, generators, plant and forklifts are all examples of items that will often fit into a high cube that might not fit into a standard height container. Worth noting also that the extra headroom will allow the use of forklifts that may not be able to operate in a standard container.

Some customers also like high cubes as it allows them to stack pallets inside,. but this will depend a lot of the type of goods you want to store and how you store them.

As you can see in the picture above they are matching blue, and are in a similar condition to any other one-trip example.
