Why Invest In a High Cube Container?

Ship more cargo in fewer units thanks to increased load capacity with our weatherproof, wind and watertight, highly secure containers.

Ready to ship, our all new 20ft high cube shipping containers are supplied with a valid CSC plate.

Please note that second-hand units may require inspection and re-certification to renew the
CSC plate for shipping.

Recommended Uses

  • Store more contents: take advantage of 15% more load capacity in a high cube container vs standard storage unit (37 cubic meters vs 32 cubic meters respectively in the 20ft models).
  • Loading is made easier thanks to the increased door height, offering improved forklift access.
  • Customise your 20ft high cube container with a range of additional accessories that improve security, functionality and the control of condensation.

We have just recently purchased 2 - 20ft x 8ft Storage Containers for our Self Storage Depot. Having dealt with Rachael. H the customer service was fantastic throughout and making the purchase as easy as possible for us. They went out of their way to find Transport for us as we needed the delivery as soon as possible. We placed the order on the 3rd July and we had our containers on site on Friday 6th July. We will be in touch when we need more containers for our site. Once again thank you for you efficiency.

SJones were very friendly, competitive and efficient with their service. The channels of communication were excellent from my initial enquiry, to setting up an account, dealing with the logistics company delivering our container through to monthly invoicing for our rental. Wouldn't hesitate to use their service again or recommend.
