High Cube Containers! More Space for Less.

High Cube Containers! More Space for Less.

Published In : 12-October-2023

At Container Technology we have a variety of shipping containers and storage containers for rent or purchase. Many customers choose a standard sized 20ft container or 40ft shipping container but another option is a high cube or HC storage container.

High cube or HC storage containers are available for sale in 40 ft, 45 ft container, and 53 ft container lengths at Container Technology

45’HC-ContainerA high cube or HC shipping container gets its name due to its extra foot of height. A standard shipping container is 8′ 6” high. In contrast, a high-cube shipping container is 9’6” high. When compared to a standard height storage container of the same length, a high cube or HC shipping container offers up to 15% more storage space.

All of our high cube or HC shipping containers are constructed out of 14-gauge corrugated steel panels, have lockable double doors on one end, are wind and watertight, and are equipped with 1 1/8” marine plywood flooring.

Like all shipping containers and storage containers, high cube shipping containers have a wide variety of applications and uses:


40’HC-ContainerHigh Cube storage containers are the perfect option for when you need extra storage but have limited space on-site. Think vertically instead of horizontally! That extra foot of height provides up with up to 15% of extra space when compared to a standard container. Like a standard shipping or storage container, high cube or HC containers provide ground access to your storage items in a secure, weatherproof, and durable shipping container. We will deliver your high cube or HC shipping container exactly where and when you want it. They are inherently portable and can be easily repositioned or even taken with you in the event of a move

Container Modifications

40ft-high-cube-container-conversion-1-gHC or High cube containers are also a popular choice for those clients who want to modify shipping containers or storage containers for use as housing or for other commercial uses. The extra height means that the interior space of the container feels much more like the interior of a building built with more traditional means. The extra height is also important when considering adding ductwork or HVAC.
