Advantages of Used Containers

Many businesses overlook the cost-effective option of buying a used shipping container as a solution to their transportation or storage requirements. Second-hand containers can offer all the advantages of a new model at just a fraction of the price.

Alternative Uses

The age and condition of the container will affect its price and how it can be reused. The more expensive premium grade containers are in very good condition, and are clean, fully welded and without any surface damage – perfect for shipping food and other consumables. Older used shipping containers for sale such as as B and C grade are not as visually appealing but may be suitable for other purposes such as storage. NOR (non-operating reefer) shipping containers that are no longer useful for transporting refrigerated food are highly sought after in other industries for their insulation properties.
