High cube shipping containers are also a very popular shipping container, especially for conversion or modifying because of the extra headroom they give. High cubes are similar to a general purpose shipping container, with all the same solid steel strength and robustness, however they are an extra foot higher. This extra foot does give extra space for shipping, however it is important to note that it doesn’t give extra weight – the weight of the goods is restricted to the same weight that a standard shipping container carries. At Shipping Containers Sydney we have 20 foot and 40 foot high cube shipping containers available, in both new and used. (As mentioned earlier however, these are very popular for converting into other uses, so used ones do sell quickly.)
GENERAL PURPOSE SIDE LOADING SHIPPING CONTAINERS
For the ultimate in convenience and access to a shipping container, you may like to consider a side opening shipping container. Along with the standard double doors at the end of the container, a side opening container has double opening doors on the side as well. This makes loading and unloading extremely easy. Having the two points of access is handy because the container can still be accessed through the end doors if it has been stored closely to other containers. Side opening containers are also very popular for converting into other uses like retail shops, galleries, trade show stands and exhibition booths, because of the wide access. Here at Sydney Port Containers, we have side loading containers readily available in 20-foot sizes. If you want a 40 foot side loading container, we can easily modify one for you.
SIMPLE ACCESSORIES FOR YOUR GENERAL SHIPPING CONTAINER
General shipping containers are pretty much a big metal box. But let loose with a few accessories, and it can become an exciting Tardis-like structure! Simple accessories include whirlybirds, air vents, paint, shelving and lockboxes. Slightly more adventurous accessories include windows, doors, electricity and data points. Want the lot? A kitchenette, ensuite, air-conditioning and insulation can turn your metal box into an extremely comfortable living space that looks much bigger on the inside!
