The following blog will give you some great information between high cube and standard containers. Although they may look a bit different, there are more similarities than differences. McLaren Container Sales has all the information you need to know about comparing the two.
20’ containers are the standard size container and are seen almost everywhere. The standard dimensions of a 20’ container are 20’ L x 8’ W x 8’6” H. McLaren Container Sales keep a wide variety in stock from as-is quality to cargo worthy.
The only difference between a high cube and a standard container is the height. The high cube container is exactly one foot taller than the standard container. The dimensions of a high cube container are 20’ L x 8’ W x 9’6” H. McLaren Container Sales has a wide variety of containers for all of your logistical needs. Whether shipping internationally, using them for personal storage or even building a habitat for yourself; we have what you need.
The obvious benefit of purchasing a high cube container is the extra foot of space you have to utilize. This can be used so that certain items can be stored or transported right side up. This may let the container fit more items inside if they are able to stand up rather than laying on their side or if you have an item that needs to be standing and cannot be laid on its side. For customers not needing the extra height of the high cube container, the standard container will work great for all your needs.
The best way to choose what container you need is simply what works best for you and your storage or shipping needs. McLaren Container Sales has the experience and expertise to recommend exactly what you might need when purchasing either of these types of containers.
