  • Large Shipping Containers

High cube containers share most of their attributes with the regular general purpose shipping container when it comes to both width and length. The only aspect where they differ is the height.

Tiger Containers is Australia’s premier choice for high cube shipping containers for sale or hire. With more than 30 years experience in the industry, you can be confident you are dealing with experts. We can even modify a shipping container for your specific requirements.

Shipping containers are also known as:

  • Intermodal Containers
  • Sea Containers
  • Cargo Containers

No matter what name you want to label them with, shipping containers are certainly one of the most important components of modern day shipping, coming in second only to the shipping vessel itself.

Like any other form of “container”, sea containers come in different shapes and sizes to cater to a whole variety of different storage and transportation needs.

The different types of cargo containers include:

  • Reefers (or refrigerated containers)
  • Open-top containers
  • Open-side containers
  • Bolster containers
  • Flat-rack containers
  • General purpose containers

General purpose containers are the most common, making up 90% of the global container fleet, and under the general-purpose category falls the high cube container…

The star of this show.

High Cube Container Features

Some common features for both 20ft and 40ft high cube containers includes:

  • Solid corrugated construction made from high-quality steel
  • Timber flooring
  • Waterproof and windproof sealed double doors
  • Doors that open the full 270 degrees for access
  • A security lock box (this could be an optional feature sometimes)

 

Common Uses for High Cube Shipping Containers

Apart from the obvious use, which is shipping, high cube containers are also ideal for the following uses:

  1. Modifications – High cube sea containers are perfect for repurposing with modifications. They can easily be turned into offices, sheds, granny flats, restaurants, kitchens, homes and so much more. In addition, these modular structures can be stacked to create more spacious structures. The taller containers make higher-ceilinged structures which enhance air circulation and comfort for occupants.
  2. Storage – High cube containers provide a few cubic metres more space for goods storage as compared to regular cargo containers. They do this without increasing the footprint of the container’s base.
  3. On-site storage – Because high cube containers are robust, secure, and extra spacious, they are ideal for onsite storage of tools and equipment, or even as an office.
  4. Vehicle storage – These containers are well suited to vehicle storage, especially where the vehicle being stored requires additional headroom. High cubes are the perfect solution.

High Cube Container Dimensions

High cube containers share most of their attributes with the regular general purpose shipping container when it comes to both width and length. The only aspect where they differ is the height.

High cube container dimensions are as follows:

20ft High Cube Container:

  • External Length: 6.06m
  • External Width: 2.44m
  • External Height: 2.90m
  • Interior Length: 5.90m
  • Interior Width: 2.35m
  • Interior Height: 2.70
  • Internal Volume: 37.44m3

40ft High Cube Container:

  • External Length: 12.19m
  • External Width: 2.44m
  • External Height: 2.90m
  • Interior Length: 12.00m
  • Interior Width: 2.35m
  • Interior Height: 2.70m
  • Internal Volume: 76.14m3

Although high cubes have similar dimensions to regular general purpose containers, they are 0.3m taller externally and 0.27m taller internally, providing more headroom for taller cargo requirements.

While high cube containers provide more storage capacity as compared to standard containers, it’s worth noting that the gross weight limit for the two containers is the same when shipping. Although this is irrelevant if you are just using the container for storage.

High cubes are made hardy, using top-quality steel to ensure that they can withstand the rough conditions of the sea.
