Open top containers, as the name suggests, are shipping containers that have an open top, which means they lack a solid roof and can be loaded or unloaded from the top. The open top of this type of container is beneficial for types of cargo that are too high and can’t fit into standard shipping containers. As with all our shipping containers, you can either hire or purchase our open tops in 20ft or 40ft lengths.
Open top shipping containers are flexible and convenient when it comes to loading and unloading cargo. Their open roof helps cranes, forklifts, hiab cranes and other lifting equipment to place goods straight into the container, which saves you time, labour and costs especially if whatever you are storing is too tall to fit into a standard shipping container.
Our open top shipping containers are commonly used in industries that require loading and unloading of cargo from the top or when the cargo's height exceeds the internal height of enclosed shipping containers. Some of the industries that use open top containers include construction, mining, agriculture, and oil and gas. If you have equipment that needs storing or transporting that is too tall, hire or purchase our open top containers by filling out an enquiry online or contacting our sales or hire team 0800 023 5060.
