Since 2015 we’ve been offering new and used shipping containers for sale in the Chicago, IL area, and we’ve helped thousands of customers get a conex container delivered for their storage needs. We believe that you can’t talk anyone into a shipping container, so none of our sales reps earn a direct commission on your order and you can even buy your shipping container directly on our website if you prefer (remember we’re always a phone call away if you have any questions).

What makes Western different is the team of professionals that will be coordinating your container delivery once you place your order. We work directly with the largest intermodal container companies in the world, and we’re one of the largest buyers of decommissioned shipping containers in North America.

We also stand behind our containers with a 3-year structural warranty (even though fewer than 1% of our customers ever need to use it).

As Chicago continues to thrive as a hub for diverse industries such as manufacturing, technology, and construction, the demand for shipping containers has surged to accommodate the logistical needs of these growing sectors.

We Deliver Within 150 Miles of Chicago, IL

We work with local haulers that have roll-off trailers to coordinate your delivery. Because of the specialized nature of the equipment needed to offer ground-level delivery of a shipping container, the hauler isn’t usually able to find a backhaul. Because of that, the driver needs to be able to get out and back within their logbook hours, and this means we’re not able to offer delivery beyond 150 miles for purchases or 75 miles for rentals.
