40ft Cargo Worthy Container: Description

Clients with a big project and plenty of space frequently choose one of our 40-foot Cargo Worthy Containers. This popular unit offers 1.4 times more space than a 20-foot storage container and costs less per square foot. With a frame consisting of 14-gauge corrugated steel walls, the rest of the 40-foot container features marine-grade plywood flooring, a layer of durable sealant at the seams to prevent leaks, and locking cargo doors on one end. As the name suggests, our 40-foot Cargo Worthy Containers stand up to ocean winds and rains and are capable of transporting more than 60,000 pounds of cargo, so the structural integrity is sure to stand up to your land-based projects. 

These ISO, also known as steel intermodal containers, are widely regarded as the most reliable heavyweight shipping units in the world. We survey each 40-foot container upon arrival to record any rust, dents, and dings and provide you with a damage-free certification. Whether you plan to use your container for shipping or for a permanent structure, we regularly recommend the 40-foot Cargo Worthy Container.

Cargo Worthy

The title pretty much says it all. Cargo worthy means just that. A cargo worthy storage container has been inspected and carries a damage­ free certification. If your needs include shipment or there is a chance you may want to ship your container in the future, we recommend purchasing a cargo worthy Storage Container. Cargo worthy units are typically still labelled by the shipping line, have some dents, scratches and surface rust where the steel has been exposed. Although this conditional category is a must for shipping we have found these containers insure a higher quality storage or special project unit. These containers have a 3 year watertight guarantee
