HOW OUR OPEN TOP CONTAINERS SPEED UP LOADING TIMES

When you buy an open top container from TITAN Ireland, you can massively speed up the loading of certain types of goods.

Providing you have access to a crane, you can lower goods in much more quickly than trying to manhandle them in through end doors. Even side door containers don’t offer quite the same level of flexibility that certain types of client demand.

This includes anyone who needs to transport or store:

  • Oversized and extra tall items
  • Bulky materials, including grain and ore
  • Large, heavy machinery
  • Industrial cable spools and pipes
  • And more.

Winching goods straight into your container can not only be quicker, but it can also be much safer, keeping workers and forklifts well clear of the area that is being loaded up.

We have new (1-trip) and used open top containers for sale all over Ireland, and we offer fast, competitively-priced delivery.

KEEPING YOUR GOODS DRY WITH A SOLID ROOF OR TARPAULIN

Most people who buy an open top container keep the elements out by lashing a thick tarpaulin with roof bows to the top. Our containers have multiple fastening points all around the top frame to make this easy and keep rain out.

Another option, which we can also supply, is to use a removable roof/metal lid to create what’s known as a hard-top open top. This can be lifted off and reapplied in sections. These sections can be locked in place once your goods are inside your open top shipping container, and help to make your items even more secure.

If you’re unsure about what kind of lid you need, please contact our open top container sales team.

OPEN TOP CONTAINER DIMENSIONS

Our new and second-hand open top shipping containers to buy are available in 20 foot and 40 foot sizes. These cover most needs, and both conform to ISO standards – meaning they can be loaded onto cargo ships for international transportation.

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

External dimensions

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

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

Internal dimensions

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

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

Pallet capacity

20 foot open top container – 11 Euro pallets

40 foot open top container – 25 Euro pallets

A FLEXIBLE STORAGE SOLUTION AT WORK OR AT HOME

As well as larger organisations who purchase them for international shipping, we sell open top containers to private individuals and small businesses.

The main reason people buy open top containers from TITAN Ireland is the access they provide from the top, unlike standard containers. They are perfect when:

Protecting bulky goods

Construction materials, heavy machinery, fertilisers and other goods can often only be loaded into a container from the top using an overhead crane. No matter how big or small your business, a 20ft or 40ft open top container with a tarp roof on top is sometimes the only viable solution.

Throwing or dropping scrap and refuse

Some clients buy open top containers to use like a vast skip. Whether you’re dropping scrap metal in or using our container as a place to deposit building site waste, the top-down approach is often much simpler than loading from the end.

GET THEM BEFORE THEY’RE GONE!

We regularly have high-quality, second-hand shipping containers and other stock items ready to go at rock-bottom prices across Ireland. Check out our latest special offers now!
