What We Do

We're one of the the largest buyers of used shipping containers in North America.
About us

Sales & Rentals

We work directly with global intermodal equipment providers to sell off their end of life shipping containers, and we leverage our buying power to buy quality shipping containers at the best price, passing that savings on to the customer. What really sets us apart is making the buying or renting process as simple as possible through our online marketplace, cutting out the need to ever talk to a salesperson.

Western Container Sales is a division of Railbox Consulting, LLC. We're an employee owned and operated company based in Minneapolis, MN. Visit to learn about our other services.
