STANDARD SHIPPING CONTAINERS

The most readily available types of standard shipping container are General Purpose (Dry Vans). These are available in 10’, 20’ or 40’ lengths, with each container type having an external width of 8’ and a height of 8’6”.

20’ and 40’ High Cube shipping containers are also available and the increased height of 9’6” can provide useful extra capacity. The width is the same as the standard containers at 8’.

10’’ Standard Shipping Container

These are a smaller alternative to a 20’ standard shipping container. When your site is constrained by space, these are great options to store your goods.

Often used on construction sites, gardening centres, for offshore marine activity and for general domestic self-storage. Our wind and watertight 10’ shipping containers come with multiple air vents, a variety of door choices and a lockbox (optional). These containers can be delivered on a rigid HIAB.

20’ Standard Shipping Container

These are the most standard size of container available and our most popular choice for both purchase and rental.

40’ Standard Shipping Container

These are the largest containers that we provide for both rental and purchase.

Used for either storage on site, domestic transportation of goods/ machinery, and most commonly, for international shipping. Our 40’ containers come in a variety of colours, age profiles and specifications.

20’ High Cube

20’ High Cubes are the same length as our 20’ Standard shipping containers, but they have an extra 1 ft of height. This gives you extra loading clearance and therefore additional capacity for storage. Often used to transport slightly bulkier goods, when a standard 20’ won’t quite manage the job. Our 20’ High Cubes come in a variety of colours, age profiles and specifications.

40’ High Cube

40’ High Cubes are the largest containers that we provide for both rental and purchase. The same length as a 40’ container, but with an extra 1 ft of height, the extra clearance gives you that extra capacity which some may require when using a forklift to load pallets etc.

Used mainly for domestic transportation of goods/ machinery, and most commonly, for international shipping. Our 40’ High Cube containers come in a variety of colours, age profiles and specifications.

CONTAINER TYPES - SPECIALISED EQUIPMENT

At Boxtor, we have more than just standard shipping containers in our fleet. We can provide a number of specialised containers to cater for a wide array of industries and sectors.

OPEN TOP SHIPPING CONTAINERS

Our open top containers are part of our specialised equipment range. They are ideal for transporting oversized and overheight cargo. If you need to ship bulk freight that simply won’t fit into a standard shipping container, then half height and full height open top containers are the perfect solution.

Manufactured using the same materials and specifications as a standard 20’ and 40’ container, ‘open tops’ have the metal roof removed and replaced with a tarpaulin cover, to ensure it remains watertight. The tarpaulin canvas roof offers extra height and capacity inside the container for a variety of different shipping uses.

Ideal for loading and unloading via crane or ‘crab’ bucket overhead, or via the steel container doors at one end. Open Top containers normally have a moving or detachable top frame above the doors.They are often used to transport machinery, timber, steel and scrap metal to name a few!
