Our 40-foot Open Containers have been purposefully designed to accommodate over-height cargo or those requiring top loading. The removable tarpaulin roof streamlines the loading and unloading process.

These containers are frequently used for transporting heavy machinery, boilers, farming equipment, pipes, and cables. With our comprehensive network of depots throughout the UK, we offer a wide range of new and pre-owned 20- and 40-foot Open Top Containers with nationwide delivery capabilities.
