When You Buy a Shipping Container in Detroit, MI From Professionals, the Whole Process is Simpler

Since 2015 we’ve been offering new and used shipping containers for sale in the Detroit, MI 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 have years of history with professional haulers that have the proper equipment to deliver your container directly onto the ground safely, unlike some of our competitors who tend to just go with the cheapest available hauler. 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).

In Detroit, a city renowned for its industrial resurgence, the growing demand for shipping containers mirrors the expansion of key industries such as manufacturing, logistics, and urban development. As these sectors thrive, the need for versatile and cost-effective storage solutions like shipping containers has become instrumental in supporting Detroit’s economic revitalization and adaptive urban planning initiatives.

Why Don’t We Make You Call for a Shipping Container Quote?

We know what a hassle it can be to call for a shipping container quote, as well as how annoying it can be to fill out a form on what appears to be a conex container sale site and consequently be bombarded with salespeople from third-party companies because your information was sold as a lead.  Unlike the big guys, we offer shipping containers for sale online with prices posted on our website.  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.
