Container Details

Shipping containers are designed to protect their cargo as they travel across oceans on freight ships and over land on trains and trucks. They protect the cargo from the elements and secure the cargo from people as well as pests. For these reasons, shipping containers are the perfect solution for on-site storage needs when they are used as portable storage containers. Steel storage containers are built with 12 or 14 guage corrugated steel sides with 6-8 guage steel framing. The floor is usually an inch thick and is either hard wood or bamboo. Shipping containers come standard with double doors on one end of the

Storage Container Conditions

"As-Is" Containers
"As-Is" storage containers are appropriate for those that want the lowest cost container and do not care about its visual appeal. "As-Is" containers make their way into the re-sale system after they are deemed unfit to transport goods across the ocean. These storage containers have visible signs of wear and usually bear the original manufacturer's paint and logo. In some cases they can have rust and visible signs of corrosion.

It is important to clarify that "As-Is" containers can be classified as Wind and Water Tight (WWT) or "As-Is". The WWT containers are weather proof and the true "As-Is" container maybe be vulnerble to the elements. We can ensure that the "As-Is" containers arrive weather proof but we cannot guarantee how long these units will remain that way. If you require wind and water tight, then consider "One-Trip" or "Refurbished."

"One-Trip" containers work well for customers that demand a container that is Wind and Water tight and is in better visual condition. As the name implies, these contaienrs only make one trip across the ocean and therefor have less wear and tear. They have less visual evidence of erosion and far fewer dents and structural imperfections. In general, they will last longer and require less maintenance. The one-trip containers don't always have the original manufacturer's logo so do consider that as well.

Refurbished Containers
These steel containers are perfect for customers that require a finished and professional look. Refurbished units are reconditioned and repainted to an almost new condition. These storage units are guaranteed weather proof and they are usually painted a solid color. In most cases, these work best as on-site storage units.
