Open Top Containers For Hire

THE SMART WAY TO STORE OR TRANSPORT THE ‘UNSHIPPABLE’

TITAN’s open top container hire gives you maximum flexibility when shipping or storing goods with an awkward or unusual shape.

If faced with heavy, bulky or oversized items that no amount of forklifts can safely transport into a container from the end, 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 40+ container rental locations across the US and Canada.

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

We also offer the option of hard-top open tops, which have a rugged metal roof. This lid comes off in sections and can be securely locked in place once your products 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’s open top containers to rent are commonly used for the international transportation of cargo.

That’s why we only offer them in 20ft and 40ft sizes – these are the precise sizes 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 Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Oakland or any other of our rental yards for a consignment to be dispatched to Europe 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 – 20ft x 8ft x 8.6ft

40ft open top container – 40ft x 8ft x 8.6ft

Internal dimensions

20ft open top container – 19.3ft x 7.7ft x 7.9ft

40ft open top container – 39.4ft x 7.7ft x 7.9ft

Internal capacity

20ft open top container – 1,113.6 cubic ft

40ft open top container – 2,320.3 cubic ft

VERSATILE STORAGE AT YOUR WORKPLACE OR HOME

Open top container rental isn’t only for large shipping and logistics companies – we also rent open top shipping containers to the general public and businesses, too.

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

1/ Keeping bulky goods dry

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

2/ Easy loading of scrap materials

Functioning like an extra-large dumpster, we have commercial and residential customers who rent open top containers from us for lowering scrap metal and other items into. Please note that rental containers need to be returned in the same condition as when they were delivered.

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU TODAY?

We value your business and are here to provide quick and hassle-free support for any inquiries or concerns. Get in touch with us by phone for immediate live assistance – or send us an email. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
