Despite the huge storage capacity of Shipping Containers Adelaide’s standard 20 or 40-foot shipping containers, there will be occasions when you require even more space for big consignments. This is where our 9’6” high cube models come into play, offering a significant 12% in extra volume over a standard height 40-footer. They can be used for haulage purposes over any distance or as safe and secure, long-term storage, and are available for hire or purchase.
Extremely Tough Construction to Protect Your Consignment
All sea containers in our outstanding range are built to last from tough, corrosion-resistant, Corten steel right here in Australia. High cube shipping containers come with standard 270˚-opening end doors for easy loading and unloading, and are ‘intermodal’, ensuring they can be transferred from train to truck to ship without the inconvenience and expense of unpacking and repacking cargoes. Flooring is made from either resilient hardwood or plywood, creating a stable platform for your load. The containers can be painted in a choice of colours and, if purchased, can be emblazoned with your company logo and livery. The extra height also allows a lighting rig to be installed if required.
A Convenient Solution to Transporting Your Over-Height Loads
The high cube shipping container is just one of several great options Shipping Containers Adelaide can offer you for transporting large, over-height consignments. They are regularly used by customers throughout Adelaide and South Australia to move or store heavy equipment destined for inland mining operations; machinery for farms and sheep stations and produce from wine regions like Clare Valley and Langhorne Creek. There are also many industrial operations in Adelaide that require storage and haulage, including those in the defence and technology. Although storage capacity is increased by volume, please note that the gross weight limit remains the same as our standard shipping containers. If even more height is demanded, we have other options, like our open top and flat rack containers.
Ideal for Long or Short-Term Secure Storage
Many industries and agriculture-based businesses experience periods when extra storage capacity is required, sometimes at very short notice. Luckily, Shipping Containers Adelaide can usually deliver a high cube shipping container to any South Australian destination within 24 hours, provided there is truck access.
Wine producers and farmers may need increased storage for bottles or crops at harvest time but don’t want to incur the cost of constructing permanent facilities. Portable shipping containers are ideal in this scenario, delivered fast then taken away when no longer required. If you are concerned that condensation may damage flour, grains and other dry goods, we can introduce a series of counter-measures, including vents, dehumidifiers and ‘Absorpoles’, which effectively remove moisture from the atmosphere.
High Cube Shipping Container Modification
The use of high cube shipping containers is no longer limited to basic haulage and storage because Shipping Containers Adelaide are also specialists in converting our standard units into an unlimited variety of other uses. Imagine them used as offices or canteens on construction sites; workshops on industrial estates; or even boutiques, bars or cafés in the Adelaide CBD! In fact, anywhere there is an available plot of land you could set up an exciting new business at a fraction of the cost of a conventional building, provided you get planning permission.
There are very few limits to the modifications Shipping Containers Adelaide Pty Ltd can make for you. Our container engineers can install extra windows, extra doors, shelving, cupboards, counters, serving hatches, electrical wiring, heating, skylights, air-conditioning and many other useful features. Simply call us to discuss your plans.

And with Adelaide’s property prices going up and up, a stylish, one-of-a-kind container home may just be the solution you’ve been looking for.
The extra headroom provided by our 9’6” high cube shipping container makes them a really clever container choice if you are looking to get a container home built. Higher ceilings always help give a home that sense of opulence and style. And at Shipping Containers Adelaide Pty Ltd we are lucky enough to work with some of Adelaide’s finest architects and interior designers to build some truly impressive container homes. Big or small, fancy or functional, a shipping container home gives you the budget to be brave, and the scope to be spectacular.
Modifying a Shipping Container is Easy
There are many additions or modifications you can make to your container, and our accessories list gives you a good idea of the most requested modification items. Whirlybirds, air vents, windows, shelving, power-points and data points, work benches, bathrooms, fluorescent lights, paintwork and more are all available. Your modifications can be as small (lockbox, shelves, flooring etc) or as extensive (entire residential fit out, including bathroom, kitchen, and laundry) as you want. If you have a grander idea in mind – an envy-inducing, customer-attracting trade show exhibit, for instance, or a movable feast of food festival booths, then we can also help. Shipping Containers Adelaide have one of the largest container modification facilities in Australia and a talented team of modification experts, so your shipping container can be customised to your specific needs with ease.
