Used Shipping Container Conditions

Shipping Container Conditions

Used shipping containers come in a wide variety of conditions. The most common are One Trip, Cargo Worthy (CWO), and Wind & Water Tight (WWT). There are also "As Is" Containers, which we do not sell because they are usually damaged, and thus cannot be guaranteed. As well as containers repaired to IICL (Institute of International Container Lessors) standards.

While we don't offer IICL containers as an option, we do sometimes sell IICL condition containers. Our experience has been that containers repaired to IICL standards are in excellent structural condition, but don't look cosmetically different than CWO or WWT containers (and, due to dents often being patched/welded instead of simply pounded out, IICL containers can sometimes look less visually appealing than their wind and water tight or cargo worthy counterparts.

Please Note: All used containers will have rust/dents. No matter the grade, every container we sell is guaranteed to be structurally sound, and comes with our one year warranty.

Things to Know Before You Order a Shipping Container

There are a few things to consider before you order a container, the most important is to be ready for delivery. We deliver containers on a roll-off trailer, so you won't need a forklift or a crane to unload at delivery, but you'll need to make sure you've got enough space for delivery and that your site is ready for the truck.

Space Needed for Shipping Container Ground Level Delivery

In order for the driver to be able to safely deliver your container, we'll need an additional 60' of space for the truck and trailer on 40' containers (100' total to deliver a 40' container), and we'll need an additional 40' of space for 20' container (60' total to delivery 20' containers). The truck will be 10' wide, and we'll need an additional foot of space on each side to safely maneuver (12' wide minimum), and will be 13'6" tall when loaded (and up to 16' high when tipped at delivery). Please make sure you've got enough space to deliver your container, and always feel free to contact us with any questions on your site.

Using Your Container For Export? You'll Need a CSC Survey.

For customers who plan to export their container, please make sure to purchase a CWO (cargo worthy) or One Trip container as well as a CSC Survey. Please note that we cannot move loaded containers, and strong recommend customers that are exporting their container work with their shipping company to pick-up the container after the survey is complete.

The driver was very helpful with the delivery and the containers were in great shape. Nothing more I could have expected. Thanks to everyone for making it so easy. :)"

Shipping Container Dimensions & Specifications

Shipping containers are held to very specific dimensional standards to ensure they can be safely stacked on top of, and below, any other shipping container in the world. Standard shipping containers are 8' wide, and are measured in TEU's (twenty-foot equivalent units). Ocean cargo containers are held to a rigid standard to ensure that there are no issues during shipping.  Each intermodal shipping container (sometimes called "conex" containers) must be able to not only stack perfectly on a cargo ship, but also lock into chassis trailers safely and securely stack on rail cars.  The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) sets the standards for shipping container dimensions (via ISO 668).

More Information About Shipping Containers

The information listed on intermodal shipping container doors is standardized so that the container can be handled at any port in the world. From the manufacturer information on the CSC plate, to the size & capacity information, to the container identification number, everything is standardized on a shipping container. Furthermore, to ensure the same equipment can safely handle the containers anywhere in the world, shipping containers are held to a very specific set of specifications and dimensions.

We don't believe you can talk anyone into a container they don't need... And when you contact us the person on the other end will just be focused on helping you, not closing the deal.

We know what a hassle it can be to call for a shipping container quote. Or how annoying it can be to fill out a form on what appears to be a conex container rental site and consequently be bombarded with salespeople from third party companies because your information was sold as a lead.  Unlike the big guys, our shipping container prices are posted online.  Why do we do this when other companies won't? Simple, we know our prices are fair, and well below what you'd see with our large corporate competitors.

Western Container Sales will get you a fair price for a used shipping container sourced directly from global intermodal equipment providers, pulled from their inventories at your nearest intermodal depot. Because the containers were recently moving cargo, we know they won't leak and we guarantee it.  Check out our current shipping container prices (please note they do change with inventory levels). We also make renting steel storage containers just as easy, with our online rental order form.
