Open Top Containers
20ft and 40ft open top containers from 1st Containers
Open Top Containers with no fixed roof can accommodate even the bulkiest of loads and where top loading of cargo is required.
At 1st Containers, we understand that our clients are facing a lot of different challenges, and we try to provide them with shipping containers for every situation. Our 20ft and 40ft open top containers are designed to solve some of the issues commonly encountered in the transportation industry – namely the need for a container that is not vertically bound by fixed barriers. This allows clients to store or move goods that are significantly taller than the standard container height or stack up additional quantity of lighter, but large volume goods.
Like all of our other shipping containers, 20ft and 40ft open top containers are made Corten steel. They are often delivered with a tarpaulin to fasten across the top of the container protecting the cargo from the weather. Open top containers are a logical choice whenever there is a need to transport heavy pieces of equipment that need to be loaded and unloaded with a crane, since overhead access makes this task much easier.
In order to provide clients with the optimal amount of choice, 1st Containers stock open top containers in two standardised sizes. 20ft containers are a great option for moderately sized items, while 40ft containers can be used instead when additional length and height is needed. Both types can be delivered quickly across the United Kingdom.
Owing to our high-quality products and top-notch service, 1st Containers is widely respected across the industry.
