1. What does HC mean?

HC stands for High Cube, which describes the height of a shipping container. These containers are 9’6″ tall (one foot taller than standard 8’6″ tall containers). See Common Shipping Container Terms for more abbreviations and standard container industry terms.

2. What are the interior and exterior dimensions of a container?

Container dimensions can be found on our Container Dimensions page.

3. How are the dry containers are delivered?

We deliver our containers using a tilt-bed trailer. With the trailer raised, the container slides off the trailer resting on one end. Then the trailer will pull straight out from under the container.

We are located in Western IL outside the small town of Smithshire, 3 hours from Chicago and 3 hours from St. Louis.

6. What size shipping containers do you have?

20’ and 40’ units are the common sizes we carry. However, upon availability, we can source custom sizes for you as well.
