Things to Know Before You Order a Shipping Container

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.

The Trucks are Big, and We Need Space to Deliver

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 Trucks are Heavy, and Need a Firm Surface

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.

Plan on Delivery in 4-7 Business Days

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 are "Next Off Stack"

Please note that used containers are next off the stack at the intermodal depot, and color cannot be selected. Make sure to check out the sample photos prior to placing your order.

Used 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. 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.
