KNOW HOW: How to buy used Shipping Containers

Used Shipping Containers are considered the best if you have a limited budget.

They are cheaper than the new ones (obviously) and you can avail them at

great discounts.

You must keep in mind the purpose of buying a container that is, whether you

want it for mobile or stationary purpose.

Several things need to be kept in mind before buying a used Shipping Container-

1. As discussed earlier, know the purpose of your purchase. You shouldn’t

buy just like that. If you want to move with your container on a truck

and use it for loading and unloading, you should go for a mobile

container. If you want it for the purpose of dumping/storing things in

your grocery store or backyard, you can select accordingly.

2. Quality should be the primary concern when you go out to buy a used

shipping container. It is true that they have a long lifespan but you need

to make sure that they are not too old. Also make sure that the

containers are made of high quality material and should preferably be

ISO marked.

3. Check for the cracks and dents. Do not buy if you feel that the roof might

come down some day. Make sure that the container is in a good


4. Get information about the company you are purchasing from. You

should make sure that the authenticity is maintained in the products.

And for that you need to check the services provided by that company.
