High Cube Shipping Containers for Sale
High cube shipping containers are similar to standard, general purpose shipping containers, and offer all the same strength, durability and security. Their difference lies in the extra height they offer – a whole extra foot. Which may not sound like much, but it really can make all the difference. For instance, a high cube 40 foot container give you an extra 344 cubic feet of storage capacity over a standard 40 foot shipping container!
High cube shipping containers are useful when either extra height for tall goods, or more room to stack bulk cargo or storage items is required. Like the general purpose ocean cargo shipping containers, they’re made with solid steel and are completely waterproof, so offer a sturdy, durable, wind-proof, watertight, secure method of storing or shipping your goods.
Whilst the high cube shipping containers offer more storage capacity than a standard container, it is worth noting that the gross weight limit of both containers is the same across both containers, so the weight of the goods being shipped does need to be taken into consideration. If you’re just using it for storage, however, this is not a problem.
