What Makes Western Container Sales Different?
We're one of the largest buyers of used shipping containers in North America. We work directly with some of the largest intermodal companies in the world to help ensure you can buy quality shipping containers, and you'll leverage our buying power. We also believe in providing up-front and transparent pricing to our customers.
Compare Western Container Sales to PODS:
The largest nationwide portable storage company is PODS (Portable On Demand Storage). While both companies offer nationwide portable storage rentals, there are some key differences... Primarily that Western Container Sales offers all steel units, and PODS offers smaller, lighter units that are made from fiberglass, aluminum and plastic, and designed to be moved while loaded.
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. 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.
