Shipping containers are 8ft 6" high as standard. High cube shipping containers are 9ft 6" - which can be handy when the standard height just isn't quite enough. 20ft High Cube Containers are therefore 20ft long x 8ft wide x 9ft 6" high.

NEW 20ft 'One Trip' High Cube Shipping Containers available for delivery throughout the UK, these units are 9ft 6in high as opposed to the standard 8ft 6in, giving an extra 12 inches of internal height which is useful when extra height is required.

Providing an extra foot (12 inches) of headroom, high cube units are a great choice for storage and conversions as they make standing inside the container more comfortable, especially if you plan on lining the container as installing internal cladding will generally reduce the internal space by 3-6 inches (depending on which materials you choose to use).

High Cube units are often used for transporting and securely storing machinery such as generators and equipment such as diggers - where additional height is required.

High Cube Pricing

The price of high cube units does fluctuate quite regularly, the price depends largely on the quantity of these units available at the given time. High-cube units are less common than standard height units - so the price of an individual high cube is usually higher than the equivalent length standard height container.

In order for us to provide you with an accurate quotation, please specify your exact delivery location (postcode) when making your enquiry - this allows us to establish the best container depot to select your container from and also provide an accurate delivery price.

20ft High Cube Container Construction

As with standard shipping containers, high-cubes are manufactured using high-quality cor-ten (corrosion resistant tensile stength) steel which is designed to stand up to the harsh rigours of sea conditions. New containers are manufactured in China and have one clean cargo over to the UK before being sold on. This explains the term 'one trip' often used to describe new containers.

Internal Flooring can vary slightly but is typically formed from 27mm hardwood. The external paint colour is usually green or blue, but this may also vary depending on the shipping line - if you need a specific colour please let us know when you inquire.

If you require your unit for shipping overseas, the initial CSC certification lasts for 5 years from the date of manufacture. The date of manufacture is clearly stated on the CSC plate on the double doors. CSC certification can be updated after this initial 5 year period if required, certification verifies that the containers construction is adequate to transport goods safely and up to a stated weight limit.

The cubic capacity of a 20ft High Cube Container is approximately 37.30 mor 1317.237 cubic feet (this will vary slightly depending on construction methods and flooring used).

High-Cube Security

Your container can be provided with a lockbox, this is a steel box welded onto the double doors to enclose a padlock thus making it less tamper proof, we can supply a high-security padlock if requested. Other customisations such as external painting or internal dry lining can also be carried out depending on your intended use for the unit.
