New 40ft 'One Trip' High Cube Shipping Containers are available throughout the UK. 40ft High Cubes are 9ft 6in high, 8ft wide and 40ft long as opposed to the standard height containers which are 8ft 6in high, High Cube containers are ideal when extra internal height is required.

40ft High Cube Shipping Container Construction

High-cube containers are manufactured using high-quality quality cor-ten steel designed to stand up to the harsh rigours of sea conditions.

Our New 40ft x 8ft x 9ft 6in High Cube Containers are manufactured in China and have one cargo over to the UK before being sold on. This explains the term 'one trip' often used to describe new containers.

Flooring is typically formed from 27mm hardwood.

The external colour is usually green or blue. 

If you require your container for shipping overseas, the CSC certification lasts for 5 years from date of manufacture. The date of manufacture is clearly stated on the plate on the double doors. The CSC certification can be updated after this 5 year period. 

The construction of High Cube units is exactly the same as standard height containers - they are simply 1ft taller to provide additional height.

High Cube Container Security

Your container can be provided with a lock box (a steel box welded on the double doors to enclose a padlock thus making is less tamper proof), a high-security padlock, painting and many other extras. Please contact our sales team if you have any questions regarding shipping container modifications.
