These one trip (new) 20ft high cube shipping containers are ideal for site storage or export use. However, at a premium over our standard height (8ft 6 high) containers these are recommended if you have to store or ship an oversize item that won’t fit inside a standard height container. Links to other popular 20ft ranges shown at the bottom of the page.

You can see the full internal and external dimensions by clicking the technical tab above. They are very popular with building sites wanting to securely and anonymously store plant and machinery and also for conversion into boiler rooms or biomass plants.

Unfortunately, the major shipping lines & leasing companies do not use these containers in their own container fleets, and as such used or refurbished 20ft high cube containers are extremely rare. We will only be able to offer a genuine used container if and when a customer who has previously purchased a new one sells one back to us. We can make a refurbished 20ft high cube to spec but these come in only a snip less than the new price. Quite frankly though, the quality difference is significant enough that we recommend the new build units nearly every time.

As these one trip 20ft high cube shipping containers are reasonably scarce, we have a range of suppliers that offer a slight difference in shades of green and blue and the numbers of vents and other minor specifications will vary. This gives us the best possible availability for an item, and usually means we have one locally to you which will ensure the most cost effective option. You can be assured that everything we sell will meet the specification offered and meet all international standards. When used for storage every container we sell comes with our 12 month guarantee against leaks and naturally occurring defects.  If there is a specific feature you need or want on your container, let us know and we can work to ensure we offer you an option that meets your own requirements.
