An Auction and Marketplace for Shipping and Cargo Containers

New Feature: Search for containers by distance

08.08.2011 - Posted by Updated On 08.08.2011    

Many people interested in buying shipping containers don't live in the main areas where containers are containers are located. This can make finding new or used shipping containers outside of a depot or storage site difficult; especially since not everyone is aware of the closest depot to them, especially retail buyers.

For example, a buyer living in Riverside, CA interested in a purchasing a container may not know that many of the containers available are located in Long Beach, which is approximately 50 miles away. Just as a buyer in Williamsburg, VA may not start their search in Hampton or Norfolk.

To make finding the best containers easier we've introduced a 'Search by distance' feature into the site. When performing a container search on the site, if you don't find containers in your immediate area you can expand the range of your search to include containers within set distances of your desired location. Once there, you can quickly review the containers, get estimates on shipping or delivery costs, and decide which containers are the best suited to your needs and budget.

To search by distance, begin your search on the front page of the website in the 'Advanced Search' box located in the left column. Type in your desired location, select the distance range where you'd like the container to be located, and click 'Search'.
