Used shipping containers are sold at the end of their useful life, and are counted in TEU's (twenty-foot equivalent units). Used 20' containers start as low as $1,100, but can cost as much as $2,500 in markets where supply is scarce. One trip 20' containers, which are like new, can cost anywhere from $2,000 to $4,000, depending on availability.
We'll coordinate your container delivery with professional local haulers, and be in contact within 1 business day with your delivery date (the driver will also call you on the day of delivery).
Every shipping container we sell is guaranteed with our 1 year warranty, covering the structural integrity of the doors, floors and roof (please note, warranty does not cover cosmetic condition).

We Source Your Shipping Container
Then we source your shipping containers directly from intermodal cargo circulation. We work directly with the largest intermodal container suppliers, so you avoid paying unnecessary middle-men. After your order is placed, you'll receive a confirmation email. You then get the next container off the stack that meets your criteria. We guarantee the doors, floors and roof (but not the cosmetic condition). Color cannot be selected.

Delivery: 4-7 Business Days
After you order, we'll be in touch within one business day to confirm your order and coordinate the logistics. To ensure everyone's safety, only customers with the proper equipment should select intermodal depot pick-up (please allow 2-3 business days for release information). Delivery is optional and calculated at checkout by zip code. Contact us with any questions, we're always happy to help.
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.
We need 60' of additional space in order to deliver a 40' shipping container (100' of total space), plus room for the truck to maneuver. Please make sure you've got space for delivery.
The truck that delivers you container could weigh over 45,000-pounds. If we're delivering on a soft surface (such as dirt or grass) please make sure your site can handle a heavy truck.
We'll coordinate with professional local haulers and be in touch with your delivery date within 1 business day of your order being placed (the driver will call when they're en route).
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. Make sure to check out the sample photos prior to making your purchase. No matter the grade, every container we sell is guaranteed to be structurally sound, and comes with our one year warranty.
