Open-top containers are perfect for over-height cargo and share similarities with general-purpose shipping containers, except for their removable tarpaulin roof. This design simplifies the loading and unloading process. Typical cargoes include machinery, boilers, farming equipment, pipes, and cables. We offer new and used 20’ and 40’ open-top containers across our UK depots, ensuring nationwide delivery capability.
