These 40’ HC have ceilings a foot higher than our standard models, coming in at 9.5’ for the exterior height. Our 1-trip containers are called that because after being built in the factory, they are then shipped to Vancouver with cargo in them, and once the cargo is removed they come to us. This means that they are close to new and have only gone through one cargo trip. Each unit is inspected multiple times to ensure excellent quality before we sell them. These 40’ containers have a premium feel and are perfect for general secure storage, or get in touch to learn about our custom modification options!

New 40’HC (1-trip) Shipping Container:

The 40’ “High Cube” (9.5’H) shipping container gives an extra 1’ of height compared to the “Standard height” (8.5”) Container. 

If you’re looking for containers that are almost brand new, then a 1-trip shipping container is the best option for you. The reason they are called “1-trip” shipping containers is that after they are built overseas, the units are then lent to a steamship line or freight forwarding company. These freight forwarders will fill the container with cargo destined for our target location to mitigate the freight cost. Once the freight is unloaded the empty container is then returned to us for an inspection!

We offer several different delivery options:

Tilt decks: Tilt decks are self-unloading trucks that are designed to back into place, tilt the deck downwards and slide the container off the trailer. This is typically the most cost-effective self-unloading method but requires the most run space. 20’ tilt decks require about 60’ of run space whereas 40’ tilt decks require a minimum of 120’ of run space.

HIAB Crane Truck: We offer a variety of crane trucks in various sizes. This option will allow us to get the shipping container into tighter areas and provides the benefit of lifting over obstacles like fences. It’s important for our team to understand exactly what you are trying to accomplish so we can arrange the right size crane.

Flat Deck: Flat decks are typically the most cost-effective option, but they require the customer to have the proper equipment on site to off-load.

STD (standard height) is 8.5’ (exterior height). HC (high cube) is 9.5’ (exterior height).

Yes, payment is due prior to pick up. Once payment is received, we can issue a release# for you to pick up the container.

Yes, we do ensure that all containers are watertight. However, if you make the request to select your container, we can either send you photo options or you can come to one of our locations and hand-pick the unit you want!

Used Containers: These units typically spend about 10 – 15 years circulating cargo for the steamship lines before they are retired. During this time it's normal for the container to incur some dents and surface rust, the floors are also going to show much more wear than a 1-trip container. All our containers are inspected to ensure they are watertight!

New (1-trip) Containers: We build new containers at the factory in Asia. To mitigate the freight cost from the factory to our locations the container is given to freight companies that essentially borrow the shipping container to transport their goods one time. Thus, the name “1-trip” the container can incur some minor dents and scuffs along its journey from the factory.

Yes, we now sell bare containers in Washington and can quote to ship modified containers all over the United States.
