40ft High Cube Containers

40ft high cube shipping containers are an alternative to the standard height 40ft containers. They are 9ft6 in tall as opposed to 8ft6in. Although the extra height may not seem a huge amount it gives 40ft high cube containers a number of important advantages. They are often used to store machinery such as mini diggers, fork lifts etc where the extra height allows larger machines to fit. They are also great for storage of pallets as you can generally double stack 2 standard pallets in these units.

The extra height also makes these units the go to for many container conversions, and even buildings built from containers. The extra height makes adding insulation in the ceiling and floor more practical and creates a finished product that feels far larger than a standard height unit could achieve.
