High-cube shipping containers are similar to standard, general-purpose shipping containers, and offer all the same strength, durability, and security. Their difference lies in the extra height they offer – a whole extra foot. It may not sound like much, but it can make all the difference. For instance, a  high cube 40-foot container gives you an extra 344 cubic feet of storage capacity over a standard 40-foot shipping container!

High cube shipping containers are helpful when either extra height for tall goods, or more room to stack bulk cargo or storage items is required. Like the general-purpose ocean cargo shipping containers, they’re made with solid steel and are completely waterproof, so offer a sturdy, durable, wind-proof, watertight, secure method of storing or shipping your goods.

Whilst the high cube shipping containers offer more storage capacity than a standard container, it is worth noting that the gross weight limit of both containers is the same across both containers, so the weight of the goods being shipped does need to be taken into consideration. If you’re using it for storage, however, this is not a problem.

The containers are available in 20-foot and 40-foot sizes and are fully painted, both inside and out to prevent corrosion.

High Cube Containers – Ideal for Container Modification

The added one foot in height means that high cube shipping containers also make a higher-ceilinged workroom, shed, office, or accommodation, so is the ideal container for modification. At PSC we can easily customize a high cube shipping container to suit your needs by adding accessories like doors, windows, air vents, shelving, container ramps, and whirlybirds, just to name a few. Our accessories list will give you a good idea of the different basic customizations we can do, or we can offer bespoke customizations to your specific requirement.

High Cube Container Homes

High-cube shipping containers are also perfect for building your shipping container house. Sturdy, stackable, modular, and durable, you can build up or out (or both!) to create a unique and cost-effective home. There are many articles and videos available online as to what sort of buildings you can create out of new and used high-cube shipping containers, as a quick search will show. Luxury houses, off-grid houses, art galleries, bush retreats, garages, offices, restaurants, coffee shops and bars, and even a sauna and swimming pool. The possibilities are endless.
