Understanding Shipping Containers

Types and Configurations

Shipping containers come in various sizes and configurations to accommodate different shipping and storage requirements. The most common lengths are 8ft, 10ft, 20ft, 30ft, and 40ft. Additionally, there are a variety of configurations available, such as open-top containers, refrigerated containers, and high cube containers that provide extra height. Consider your intended use and the items you plan to store or transport when selecting the right container for your needs.

New vs Used Containers

When purchasing a shipping container, you have the option to choose between new and used units. New containers offer the advantage of being in pristine condition with no wear and tear. They are ideal for customers who require a container for long-term use or want a more aesthetically pleasing option. On the other hand, used containers offer a more cost-effective solution without compromising on quality. They are thoroughly inspected and repaired to ensure they meet industry standards and are suitable for your needs.
