Product Description

Introducing our brand new range of new 20ft high cube side opening shipping containers.

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 fit into our standard height 20ft side opening units. 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 an MOT for a car).

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. Currently we only have green units available but we expect to be ordering more soon and if we get a lot of interest we will likely have a blue range available soon (in the meantime we can always repaint any colour you needed for a marginal additional cost).

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 in Felixstowe and Southampton depots we can move these to any of our other UK locations at short notice. Viewings 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.

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 ‘inner and outer’ doors will vary depending on the factory that built them)

As with all new build containers, These units have done 1 trip in from china with freight inside the container. With any one trip container you can expect 1 or 2 small imperfections consistent with this first trip over from China. You can read more about this in our recent news article ‘what can you 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.

Technical Information for 20ft High Cube Side Opening shipping containers

Please note whilst we have tried to be as accurate as possible, some measurements (notably internal measurements) can vary slightly with the development and modernisation of manufacturing techniques over time. We recommend considering a circa 1 inch (2.5cm) tolerance. Where possible we have given a range on known variations in dims between ranges but we can’t guarantee this to be totally accurate for all ranges. If you have a specific sized problem or item to load that’s near these dims please double check with us in advance and if needs be we will get someone to measure the exact container for you.
