We all know that shipping containers are used primarily to ship goods on cargo ships, but there are many other uses for these versatile steel boxes:
Residential: Our shipping containers are sturdier than a shed, built to last, wind and water tight, and are the perfect solution for residential storage. Residential uses include:
Commercial / Retail: Shipping containers are a great solution for commercial or retail outlets in need of extra room for inventory or additional work space. Commercial uses include:
One Trip / New Containers
These containers are manufactured in China and shipped over with cargo one time, hence the name one trip containers. These containers are near perfect, but can have minor scuffs or dents that may have occurred while loading and unloading.
Wind & Water Tight Containers (WWT)
These containers have been retired from the cargo ship, but are still structurally sound and more importantly dry. All of these will have surface rust, dents, and patches, but they will have good solid floors, doors, roofs, and seals. For storage, these are your best value!
The truck bringing a 40' container to your yard is going to be 70ft long and weigh over 30,000lbs so there needs to be room for the truck to get in and out as well as a suitable road surface for him to drive on:
Cargo Worthy Containers (CW)
These containers are still suitable to be used on cargo ships to ship goods, hence the name cargo worthy. They're very nice and will pass all inspections, but will have cosmetic imperfections such as surface rust, dents, and the occasional patch.
