Tiger Containers have a range of 40ft Open top shipping containers.

These are specially designed container which does not have a standard steel roof, they have removable steel roof bows which support a removable tarp.

The top rails above the doors are also designed to unlock on one side,  so the header bar will swing open allowing easier access for over height loading and unloading.

These are perfect storage solutions for products which are over height or will not fit in a conventional shipping container.

Benefits of 40ft
shipping containers

Robust and durable

Shipping containers are built to withstand the rough conditions of open sea which makes them hardy and durable.


The 40ft shipping container can be used for a variety of purposes such as shipping, conversion or storage.


Sea container conversions provide a way of making structures using re-purposed old shipping containers improving the way we utilise resources and minimising wastage.
