Most people know that you can bid on new and used shipping containers through the auction on, and now you can also purchase shipping containers directly through the site.

On we've added to our buying options by adding the "Marketplace" feature. Marketplace listings are available for immediate purchase, with no bidding or waiting times. These types of listings are ideal for situations for times when buyers are ready to purchase a shipping container right away.

Finding Marketplace listings on the site is as easy as performing a regular search. The best place to begin is on the Advanced Container Search page. Select "Marketplace" from the search options, add in any other criteria that's necessary for your container, and click on the search button. If you're already on the search results page, just select Marketplace from the options in the left hand column. Once clicked, the site will automatically filter out all traditional auction listings.

The rest of the process is the same it's always been. Once you find a shipping or storage container that you're interested in, you can contact the seller to ask them any questions about the listing, or click on the "Buy Now" option, confirm that you have read and agree to the sellers agreement, and an invoice will be sent to you within 24 hours. If you have more questions on buying a shipping container, you can find other helpful information on the site or contact our office and we'll be glad to assist you with any questions that you might have.

The Marketplace feature is part of the new commercial container trading platform that is being introduced by in early 2012. If you are a high volume seller of shipping containers and would like to learn more about the platform, please contact our office and we can arrange a convenient time for a demonstration.
