If you’re in the market to purchase or a portable storage unit, or mobile offsite storage, it makes a lot of sense to consider purchasing a used shipping or cargo container to have delivered to your location. Used cargo containers make great storage units because they are durable, environmentally friendly, cost efficient, and portable.

Durable: Cargo containers are designed to be transported around the world carrying all types of products. By design, they are able to withstand industrial abuse while keeping all items inside secure and dry. Under normal conditions and use a container is kept in service for approximately fifteen years. After its shipping life has passed containers are still well suited for storage conversion projects, or even housing modifications.

Environmentally Friendly: Converting a cargo container into a storage unit requires very little modifications, and many cases no modifications need to be completed. The steel shell, frame, and flooring mean that virtually the entire product can be recycled.

Cost Efficient: Used shipping containers are very affordable. Depending on the type of the container, age, location, and condition the prices can be as low as $1200. Considering that the internal space of a 20’ container is 1160 cubic feet and a 40’ container has 2360 cubic feet that puts the cost of your storage space to be very low, and even less as a one time cost.

Portable Storage: Shipping containers can be moved, relocated, or even sold after you’re finished with them. Depending on the type of foundation that the container is put on, moving a container can be very easy.

ContainerAuction.com hosts regular sales and auction of cargo containers throughout the United States and around the world. The most common containers available are 20’ shipping containers, 40’ shipping containers, and high cube containers.
