45ft Long High Cube Container

The 45ft high cube is the big daddy of containers - the very largest size you can buy. It not only offers an extra 5ft in length over the next largest common 40ft shipping container, but also an additional foot in height. They are also "pallet wide", meaning the internal width allows for two standard 4ft pallets to be accommodated in the container side by side. However, these shipping containers are not commonly available and are hard to come by in the second hand market, where value for money is usually better.

Advantages of using a 45ft high cube container

  • An extra 315 cubic feet loading capacity compared to the 40ft high cube shipping container

  • Increased loading capacity means increased efficiency for transportation, and therefore lower costs - why pay more to send two containers when you can do it in one! (Max weight load is similar to that of the 40ft high cube container, therefore the 45ft high cube container is most efficiently used when transporting voluminous lighter cargo)

  • Used as a site store it can securely accommodate tall plant machinery (i.e. diggers)
