The largest container in our range, we can supply 45ft shipping containers for sale across the UK.
Available in used condition only, the 45ft high cube shipping containers we stock are spacious in size, as they provide an extra foot of height and are four inches wider than a standard container.
These pallet-wide containers are the perfect option for the safe storage, transportation, and international shipping of large cargo.

45 Foot Shipping Container Features

Our structurally sound stock of used 45ft shipping containers is guaranteed wind and watertight, with plywood floors and multiple air vents and lashing points. As the 45ft shipping containers we supply are second-hand and vary in appearance and condition, we offer a repainting service if a fresh lick of paint is required. A lockbox can be installed onto our used containers for an additional charge prior to delivery if this is desired by the customer as a security measure.

External: 45ft (13,710mm) long, 8ft 2ins (2,500mm) wide and 9ft 6ins (2,890) high
Internal: 44ft 5ins (13,556mm) long, 8ft (2,430mm) wide and 8ft 10ins (2,692mm) high

45 Foot Shipping Container Uses

45ft shipping containers can be used for various purposes, including:

  • Transporting cargo internationally by sea, land, or rail. They are mostly used for shipping a wide range of goods, including consumer products, machinery, and oversized items, around the world.
  • Temporary or permanent storage solutions for businesses or individuals
  • Being modified into various structures for bespoke business needs such as offices or workshops

If a 45ft unit is too big for the space you have available, we also offer multiple types of smaller containers in sizes 10ft, 20ft, 30ft and 40ft.
