A Guide To Open-top Shipping Containers For Sale In NZ
12 April 2020
Shipping containers can be used for a large variety of purposes. Transporting and storing goods is the most common purpose, but shipping container modifications have allowed them to be used for a larger range of functions.
Open top containers are one of the most common modified shipping containers. These containers function with a similar purpose in the fact that they are used for both transporting and storing goods.
The main benefit they provide is the fact that they do not have a roof. This allows for a larger amount of vertical space similar to our high cube containers, giving it the ability to hold larger and taller items.
Instead of the traditional corrugated steel roof, these containers come with a removable and durable tarpaulin cover to provide protection from wind and water. This cover is held down by steel trusses. These containers are great for bulk good transport.
The open-top also means that the loading and drop off of goods can be done through either the top or the side opening for full side access. This makes these containers ideal for the transportation of loose items that take up large amounts of space.
At ContainerCo, we offer 40 ft containers, 20 ft containers and 10 ft containers for sale.
The uses for open-top containers
The reduced restrictions of open-top containers mean more oddly shaped and bulky goods can be transported and stored as you are not restricted by the normal specifications of traditional dry steel containers. It also means that more goods can be stored.
Some of the most common goods transported in these containers include:
- Large machinery
- Construction supplies, debris and vehicles
