Shipping container projects, from onsite storage units to storm shelters and cabins are continually increasing in popularity, and the summer is a great time to get started on them. Obviously, people tend to have more spare time and enjoy longer days during the summer, but summer also leads to great summer sales on new and used shipping containers.

This week's cheapest shipping containers are found in Chicago, Illinois. One of the larger lines that sell through has dropped their prices dramatically and now wholesale and retail buyers can benefit from the significant savings.

Chicago isn't the only place to put cheap containers out on the market. There are some great summer sales available on new and used 20' shipping containers in Montreal, Canada. Note that the used container inventory tends to sell quickly there, so you'll need to be ready to jump on any deals that come on the market.

Lastly, Denver Colorado is always a busy market. Both new and used 20' shipping containers in Denver sell very quickly and they tend to be a little more expensive due to the logistics involved in getting them there. Check this line to view shipping containers for sale in Colorado.

Shipping Container Project Ideas

So what's everyone doing with all of these shipping containers? Project sizes vary greatly with the ideas and applications, but there's no shortage of ideas.
