Our open top shipping containers are generally used to ship oversize items that won’t fit inside a normal shipping container, or for goods that are best or more easily loaded through the top of the container.

Open top shipping containers typically come with a tarpaulin cover but a removable hard top option is also available. We can also help supply extra-large tarpaulins if your goods are too tall for the standard tarpaulin.

Open top shipping containers are available in either 20 ft container or 40 ft container options. If you are unsure as to which size might be best suited for the purpose you have in mind, feel free to get in touch with our team for no obligation advice.

Open Top Containers For Sale & Hire

All Open Top Containers, both 20ft and 40ft container options, are made from galvanised steel and the interior of all containers come with marine plywood flooring. They are especially suited to specialised export use and all come complete with a CSC plate.

The CSC plate indicates that the container has passed specific safety test and meets minimum standards for shipping, in additional to a four-digit code that identifies the container’s own and its intended use. New containers are fitted with a circa 5-year CSC plate, whereas used containers come with a minimum 6-month CSC plate.
