Portable storage containers, sometimes referred to as conex containers, cargo containers, portable containers, office containers, or shipping containers are ideal solutions for long term, secure storage. The containers are very durable and extremely secure. Many times we can help to deliver the container to your location.
Buying a portable storage container online from ContainerAuction.com will help to ensure you get the best quality container, at the best price available. Storage containers can be used without any modifications, or the container can be customized to meet your specific needs.
A standard portable storage container, directly purchased from a shipping line, will normally be 20 feet or 40 feet long, and have doors on one end. Occasionally, there are "off the shelf" containers with doors on both ends, but this is not as common. The price for this type of container is very straight forward and you will only need to pay for the container and any delivery charges.
Modified Storage containers can also be found to better meet your needs. The most common modifications are having man doors or roll up doors added, or a fresh coat of paint. In some cases, desk or rack space can be added, along with basic electric wiring to provide lighting or power for tools.
As with a rented storage unit, the cost of a portable storage container varies greatly with the amount of square footage, features, and amenities that you would like to include. For the best and most secure storage, it’s recommended that you find containers that are structurally sound, not “racked”, and free of rust or corrosion. With this in mind, it’s best to begin search for containers that are at least in “wind and water tight” condition. Wind and water tight containers will probably be in the $2000 region, depending on the area that you live in, and the price of storage containers will go up from there. Cheaper containers may be available, but the condition of these containers may be questionable and could cause issues later on.
