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).

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.
