How to Purchase a Shipping Container: FAQs

Can I pick my shipping container color? 

We understand that there are times when you want a container to match your facilities or brand. That’s why when you buy a shipping container from us, we give you the option to choose a custom paint job as part of our extensive customization options. 

How do I know which shipping container to purchase?

There are several factors to consider when browsing through our cargo shipping containers for sale. One of the most important is determining the size you will need as well as how you will use it. If you’re planning to use it for anything other than shipping, you will most likely want to take advantage of our modification services. If the condition isn’t as important to you, we also offer a wide range of used storage containers for sale that give you the opportunity to save money on your purchase. If you’re overwhelmed by your options, our experts will be happy to guide you through the selection process so you can find the perfect match for your needs. 

Where can I get a shipping container delivered?

We can have your container delivered almost anywhere, as long as you make sure the space can accommodate it. You’ll need to measure the space, with the general rule of thumb being twice the length of the container plus 10 feet in a straight line. This is to make sure the truck can maneuver and provide roll-off delivery. We also recommend making sure the ground under the container will be level and provide adequate drainage around it. In general, our delivery trucks require 14 feet of height clearance and 12 feet of width clearance along the route. As long as these conditions are met, there’s a good chance we will be able to deliver to you. 

Should I go with a new or used/refurbished container?

Choosing one of our used shipping containers for sale can be a great way to save some money on your next purchase. If you’re not afraid of some scuffs or dings, choosing a user container can be a great choice. If you’re looking for something customized to your exact specifications, however, you’ll have better luck with a new unit. 

When do I need a WWT container?

Wind and watertight (WWT) containers are sealed against harsh weather, which makes them ideal for storage situations where they will be kept outside for extended periods of time. With a WWT container, you can rest assured there will be no risk of damage to your goods due to rain, snow, or wind. 

When do I need a high cube shipping container?

Because they stand a foot taller than standard containers, choosing one of our high cube shipping containers for sale is great when you need a little extra headroom. They work well for storing taller items or when converting into an office or living space.
