Key Information for Used 40ft High Cube Containers
Used 40ft High Cube Shipping Containers are available for sale throughout the UK. 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. Used High Cube Containers are ideal when extra height is required.
High Cube Shipping 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 or lining to the inside of the container (i.e. 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.
40ft High-Cube Container Construction
Shipping containers are manufactured using high-quality cor-ten steel which is designed to stand up to the harsh rigours of sea conditions. Due to their 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 shipping containers are inspected when they arrive in the depot to ensure fully wind and watertight; 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 shipping container for shipping overseas, then we can update the details on the CSC plate. Please advise us if this is a requirement.

Used Shipping Container Security
Your container can be provided with a lockbox (steel box welded on the double doors to enclose a padlock thus making it less tamper proof), a high security padlock, painting and many other extras.
High Cube Containers are also ideal for secure storage due to their robust construction, a steel container offering significantly more security than alternatives such as a wooden shed.
