Open Top Containers For Hire

THE SMART WAY TO STORE OR TRANSPORT THE ‘UNSHIPPABLE’ 

TITAN UK’s open top container hire gives you maximum flexibility when shipping or storing awkwardly-shaped or sized goods.

If faced with heavy, bulky or oversized items that no amount of forklifts can safely transport into a container from the end (or even from the side in one of our double door containers), going in from the top is the answer.

This is exactly what our rugged open top containers were made for. Available in 20ft and 40ft sizes, you can hire one for as long as you need from any of our 20+ UK-wide depots.

Once loaded into your open top container by crane, goods can easily be kept safe and dry with a heavy-duty tarpaulin with roof bows that is secured all around the top frame.

We also offer the option of hard-top open tops (a solid metal roof) that comes off in sections and can be securely locked in place once goods are inside the container.

A ONE-WAY DROP-OFF FOR OVERSEAS TRANSPORTATION 

Built to the same specifications as our robust, corrosion-resistant standard shipping containers, TITAN UK’s open top containers to hire are commonly used for the international transportation of goods.

That’s why we only offer them in 20ft and 40ft sizes – the precise sizes that cargo ships require in order to facilitate easy loading and to conform to ISO standards.

Many clients choose a one-way rental, which we can offer all over the world thanks to our wide global presence.

TITAN has a footprint in more than 90 countries worldwide, and renting an open top container in London, Manchester, Bristol or any other depot for a consignment to be dispatched to the US or Asia can be surprisingly affordable.

OUR OPEN TOP CONTAINER DIMENSIONS 

When you rent an open top container from TITAN, you have two options: 20ft and 40ft.

The exact measurements of these large storage containers (length, width, height) are as follows:

External dimensions

20ft open top container – 6.06m x 2.44m x 2.59m

40ft open top container – 12.19m x 2.44m x 2.59m

Internal dimensions

20ft open top container – 5.87m x 2.33m x 2.35m

40ft open top container – 12m x 2.33m x 2.35m

Pallet capacity

20ft open top container – 11 Euro pallets

40ft open top container – 25 Euro pallets

VERSATILE STORAGE AT YOUR WORKPLACE OR HOME

Open top container hire isn’t only for large shipping and logistics companies – we also rent open top shipping containers to private individuals and businesses, too.

Here are just two of the many reasons why people choose to hire them:

1/ Keeping bulky goods dry

When you have building materials, machinery or spare parts to store that can only be loaded into a container from the top, renting an open top container with a tarpaulin lid is the answer.

2/ Easy loading of scrap materials

Functioning like an extra-large skip, we have private and business clients who rent open top containers from us for lowering or throwing scrap metal and other items into.
