40ft High Cubes are 9ft 6" high, 8ft wide and 40ft long as opposed to the standard shipping containers which are only 8ft 6" tall. The only difference between high cubes and standard containers is the 12 inches (300mm) of additional height.

High Cube Containers are a great starting point for conversion projects, they offer an additional 12 inches of headroom and so make the space inside the container feel much more comfortable (especially for taller people). Container conversions will typically add some form of internal cladding, lining or insulation to the inside of the container (i.e. the ceiling panels and flooring) this reduces the amount of usable space - so choosing a high-cube with 12" of extra vertical space is a popular decision.

40-ft High-Cube Construction

All Shipping containers are manufactured using high-quality corten steel which is designed to stand up to the harsh rigours of sea conditions. Due to their robust steel construction, we would expect a properly maintained used shipping container to last you in excess of 20 years from the date of purchase.

All of our used containers are inspected when they arrive in the depot to ensure fully wind and water tight; up to cargo worthy industry standard.

The double doors will be fully operational and door seals fully intact to prevent any water ingress, the internal flooring is formed from 27mm hardwood.

They are typically 10 – 15 years old from date of manufacture.

Our shipping containers are usually picked from the depot on a “next from stack” basis. The external colour may vary.

If you require your used high cube for shipping overseas, let us know and we can update the details on the CSC plate.

High-Cube Container Security

Containers are inherantly secure due to their construction, but you can improve the security of the containr doors by adding a lock-box (a steel box welded on the double doors to enclose a padlock thus making is less tamper proof) and a high security padlock.

A steel container offers significantly more security than alternatives such as a wooden shed.
