Standard shipping container units have the ability to carry a large load, but there are times when particularly tall items require the extra foot of height offered by a popular variation – the 9’6” high cube shipping container. Surprisingly, the extra foot of height in a 40-foot high cube actually offers an additional 12% of very useful storage, in comparison to a standard 40-footer. Access is easy via 270-degree opening doors.
Shipping Containers Brisbane offer you a number of solutions for transporting or storing tall, awkward loads, and our high cube shipping containers (also known as sea containers) are a regular choice for discerning haulage companies. They can be easily stacked by crane and dock workers are very used to handling them. They are also ‘intermodal’ meaning they can be transferred from train to truck to ship without their contents being unloaded each time.
There are an unlimited number of scenarios where temporary extra storage is required, either as part of logistical scheduling or as a contingency plan. The beauty of high cube shipping containers is in the extra headroom they offer. This can allow a handy lighting rig to be installed or additional shelving, thus offering more versatility than a standard unit.
High cubes can be used as overflow storage for farms, mines and factories or as useful additional stockrooms for retail businesses and warehouses. We can install vents or you can use Absorpoles and de-humidifiers to combat the occasional problem of condensation, which can detrimentally affect some contents.
Due to their portability, high cube shipping containers can be brought in at very short notice to solve a short-term need even in remote rural locations, then simply taken away when no longer required. This is certainly more cost-effective than building a permanent storage facility that may remain empty for years. With lock-boxes to protect padlocks from thieves using power tools and bolt-croppers, you can rest assured that your contents will be well protected.
