40ft high cube containers can be used for all types of general cargo. However, they are particularly suitable for transporting lighter, voluminous cargoes and over height cargoes up to a maximum of 2.70 m tall.

Think big!

40ft high cube containers are the largest product we sell, so if you have a very large load to ship, or store, this is the one. High cube containers are unique as they have an extra foot of height over ordinary shipping containers, standing at 9ft 6inches tall. In all other aspects they are identical to the standard 40ft shipping container, at 40ft long, 8ft wide, watertight, and exceptionally strong and secure. They are made from corten steel, which is able to withstand great strain, and is also waterproof and rust proof.

Choose 40ft high cube containers for home removals

High cubes are a popular choice for overseas home removals. The extra height means you can usually get a house load into one 40ft container instead of needing two. This cuts down on costs and is more convenient.

Ideal for storing plant machinery

High cube containers make the perfect store for plant machinery, as the extra height can accommodate taller equipment such as diggers. Or if you need the maximum height, but maybe not the whole 40ft length, we have for sale a 30ft high cube container, repainted and ideal for storage.
