Got Questions?

Buying Shipping Containers Frequently asked questions.

Our team of experts has meticulously crafted detailed responses to ensure that you receive accurate and helpful information.

Used Shipping Containers

Typically, delivery takes between 3 to 7 business days for readily available stock. For faster delivery, we recommend early purchase to ensure prompt scheduling. Delivery times for reserved inbound stock may vary due to potential shipping delays.

A “wind and watertight” container has no cracks or holes, ensuring the floor is in good condition and the door seals are tight, keeping out wind and water. If you stand inside with the doors closed, you shouldn’t see any light, indicating it’s secure from weather elements.

Unfortunately, choosing the color of a used container isn’t an option. Used containers are stored in large depots in high stacks, and when your container is selected, it will be the first one available regardless of color.

The floors are made with marine-grade plywood for durability and moisture resistance. They consist of steel cross members, wooden floor joists, and treated plywood sheets.

A 20ft shipping container has an internal area of 140.3 sq ft and an external area of 159 sq ft. A 40ft standard or high cube container has an internal area of 304.6 sq ft and an external area of 320 sq ft.

For a comprehensive understanding, please refer to our detailed delivery guidelines. A 20FT storage container requires at least 60 feet of straight clearance, while a 40FT or 45FT container needs a minimum of 100 feet. Ensure gate width is at least 10 feet and clearance from low-hanging branches is around 14 feet or more, especially at the drop-off area, to facilitate truck bed elevation.

We use tilt-bed trucks and trailers designed to place your storage container on the ground. The container slides off gently as the truck bed is raised and the truck moves forward. If you have the means to unload a container yourself, such as a forklift or crane, please inform your sales representative, as discounts on delivery fees, especially for long distances, may be available.

Ensure the site is level, smooth, and firm. Our trucks can unload on various surfaces, including cement, pavement, asphalt, or gravel. We recommend placing pavers or concrete blocks under each corner of the container for better airflow and ease of relocation if needed.

Full payment is required before delivery. We accept personal and business checks, Wire and ACH payments, bank deposits, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card, and Zelle payments.

Anyone can purchase a shipping container without needing ownership transfer or registration. However, check local regulations regarding storage container usage. The container’s BIC code, printed on all four sides, identifies it during international shipping and storage.

Unfortunately, due to our wholesale nature, we don’t offer container modifications. Our containers are shipped directly from ports and depots. However, shipping containers are easily modifiable for DIY projects.

Ensuring your container is level is crucial. If it’s not on level ground, leveling it post-delivery is necessary. Misalignment, often due to uneven placement, can cause door closure issues. For guidance, watch this instructional video on leveling a shipping container: https://youtu.be/IxpqXuegZSo.
