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.

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

Our haulers need 80' of additional space in order to deliver a 40' shipping container (120' of total space), plus room for the truck to maneuver. Please make sure you've got space for delivery. 20' shipping containers are delivered on a different size truck, and so we only need an additional 55' of space (75' of total space) to deliver 20' containers.

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.

Shipping Container Dimensions & Specifications

shipping container dimensions, storage container dimensions

Shipping containers are held to very specific dimensional standards to ensure they can be safely stacked on top of, and below, any other shipping container in the world. Standard shipping containers are 8' wide, and are measured in TEU's (twenty-foot equivalent units). Ocean cargo containers are held to a rigid standard to ensure that there are no issues during shipping.  Each intermodal shipping container (sometimes called "conex" containers) must be able to not only stack perfectly on a cargo ship, but also lock into chassis trailers safely and securely stack on rail cars.  The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) sets the standards for shipping container dimensions (via ISO 668).

More Information About Shipping Containers

The information listed on intermodal shipping container doors is standardized so that the container can be handled at any port in the world. From the manufacturer information on the CSC plate, to the size & capacity information, to the container identification number, everything is standardized on a shipping container. Furthermore, to ensure the same equipment can safely handle the containers anywhere in the world, shipping containers are held to a very specific set of specifications and dimensions.

How Do Steel Storage Containers Compare to PODS?

The largest nationwide portable storage company is PODS (Portable On Demand Storage). While both PODS and Western Container Sales offer nationwide portable storage rentals, there are some key differences.

Primarily that PODS' containers are smaller, lighter units that are made from a combination of steel, fiberglass, aluminum and plastic, and designed to be moved while loaded.  In contrast, our rentals are re-purposed used shipping containers

(all steel construction, with wood floors over steel cross members).Overall, steel shipping containers are a larger and heavy duty alternative to the standard PODS storage containers. PODS now offers a an all-steel 16 ft container.

PODS Will Move Loaded Containers, We Won't...

While Western Container Sales offers steel storage containers in sizes up to 40' in length, PODS offers smaller, 8', 12' and 16' storage units with aluminum and plastic exteriors, in addition to a 16' all-steel container option. Steel shipping containers are difficult to load/unload without the heavy equipment found at ports and depots, but PODS units are small enough to be easily managed with light duty lifts. Western Container Sales does not move loaded units, so if you need your container moved after it's loaded PODS or similar companies might be a better option. However, if you need storage at your location we offer larger, all steel containers. Our cost per square foot is almost always lower, as well.

We Deliver Within 250 Kilometers of Edmonton, AB

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 250km.
