40ft High Cube Container Benefits:

  • Store more: a 40ft high cube has a 14% greater cubic capacity vs a standard unit.
  • Loading is made easier thanks to the larger door aperture, offering improved access for forklifts.
  • Enhance your purchase with a range of additional container accessories to improve security through lockboxes & padlocks, and functionality through flat pack shelve racking and condensation control.

Cost Effective

  • Store efficiently: all 40ft High Cube Shipping Containers are weather proofed to be wind and watertight whilst remaining highly secure – making them ideal for storing plant machinery such as diggers.
  • Ship efficiently: All new units are supplied with a valid CSC plate* and can be used for shipping. The extra foot of height will allow you to stack more pallets in fewer units, without taking up extra floor space.

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