40’ Standard Shipping Containers

When you are looking to purchase or rent a 40ft container, you can choose
between a factory original NEW (1 trip) container, or a USED (wind and watertight) container. They offer the best value for money if you have the space to accommodate them on site.

Available in standard height and HIGH CUBE, with the latter being more common these days and giving you 1ft of extra height internally.

Which option do I go for?

You have a variety of options to consider when choosing your 40ft container. Firstly, you must decide between standard height (dry van) or high cube (extra 1 foot in height). We recommend the high cube, as it offers you better value for money overall with extra internal cubic capacity! Then you much pick between a new or used grade container: NEW (1 trip) units built at the container factory in China. The gives you a lifetime of usage as this container has just been manufactured. Air vents offer maximum air flow, which helps to prevent any condensation build up inside the unit. A lockbox comes fitted as standard on all our new containers meaning the container is secure from vandals. With new (1 trip) containers, you pay for what you get!

The other option is you go for a USED container. This offers good value for money if you are looking for simple, secure, wind and watertight storage options at your site. If appearance is not of importance to you, let us know and we might be able to supply you with a cheaper container. *If ordering new containers in bulk, you can choose your own paint colour/ container spec
etc. Speak to our team to find out more.

PRIMARY USES

40ft containers are most commonly used for international shipping. They are some of the largest containers around, and 40ft high cubes are most commonly used to ship large,
palletised goods from the far East over to Europe and the U.S.A. They are also very common for conversion use, such as container housing, pop-up bars, ticket offices and changing room facilities to name a few.
