needed for additional storage of materials or equipment, but they are also used for the transport of goods.

due to age as it costs the shipping companies too much money, so they are sold as used shipping

SOME USEFUL INFORMATION ABOUT CONTAINERS AND WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
• Look for "one-trip" containers if you are looking for a nearly new look and condition. These containers are
usually made in China see www.multiboxxuk.com and used once for cargo shipping before being sold.
They are often listed as "new" or "like new" but they will have a few scratches from their initial trip. You will
not get new containers at competitive rates as everything is shipped loaded from factories. New unused
would cost much more.
• Look for "corten steel" if you want to use containers in inclement weather or near the ocean or long term
static storage. This relatively new material is also used in construction projects and it can stand up to
more weather without rusting.
• Look for a "factory paint" label if you want it to be freshly painted, instead of refurbished. Refurbished
containers can have problems with paint peeling from rust. Factory paint implies that it has only been
painted once, when it was made.
• A designation as "no shipping label" means that you will not find a large company logo on the container.
It is likely painted a single colour, without many other markings.
• A "cargo worthy" container indicates that the unit has been inspected by a cargo surveyor see our site
• Shipping containers that are categorized as "as-is" are the most worn and economical option. It is likely
that they have been retired by shipping companies, they have some leaks or damage, they are partially
rusted and they have 1 or more shipping labels painted onto them. There is a large supply of as-is shipping
containers across the globe, so you are likely to find a good price.
• Modified shipping containers are also available at various prices. Many of these containers have been
repainted. Other options include roll up doors, heat units, air conditioning units, skylights, security bars,
partitions, vents, fans, framing and insulation. Keep in mind that the addition of new doors or windows will
compromise the seal and security of the original model. How ever see our website
• Other well used containers are classified as "wind-water-tight". Wind and water tight conveys that the
seller believes it to be a well sealed container, but it has not been inspected by a surveyor.
