High cube container is a taller version of the standard General Purpose container. They are usually preferred for their extra spaces because they are taller than usual containers. However, despite the difference in height, both containers have the same maximum gross weight. Most transport services don’t charge more either because both types of containers have roughly the length. Hence, the true difference will be crucial only when you need to store tall items, such as household furniture, office equipment, or craft materials. Most high cube containers also have a recess in the flooring at the front end to stabilise the container on the gooseneck chassis, which allows it to lay lower and be of higher construction.
