7 Critical things that people don’t know about buying a shipping container
- Beware of backyard operations – There are a heap of container “Brokers” in the market today and they seem to offer great prices but do not actually control the quality of the container you are being sent and may struggle to provide support if there is an issue.
- Look for a real container depot that has trained staff and a good reputation – Because they deal with 1000’s of container, often own the containers and will inspect the containers at the highest professional level as they want to maintain their reputation in the industry for quality and service.
- Find a supplier that can back their product – If for some reason you get a container that does not meet your expectation will you be able to Fix or swap the container. Only a real container yard can offer this level of service
- Beware of container grading – Unfortunately there is no industry standard for grading used shipping containers, which means it can be hard to compare prices. Make sure you ask about the details of the condition of the used container not just the grade.
- Tell your supplier what you intend to use the container for – A really great container supplier will advise you on the best grade or type of used container for your requirements rather than just sell you what ever you ask about.
- Look for a supplier with experience in transport – As there are a number of options for delivering a shipping container it is really important to get the correct transport otherwise you may find that you can not position the container where you need it once it arrives. Tilt Tray, Side Loaders and Hiab trucks all have different abilities and restrictions for positioning. Find a supplier that knows how this works
- Find a supplier that cares – A Company that sells used shipping containers for storage should really ask you about Security and Ventilation. These may not seem important but for the small additional cost can save you from theft or potential damage (from moisture build up) of your stored items if this is not taken into consideration
A good quality used shipping container has the advantage that it can be a very cost effective way to store items while still retaining a good resale value if you no longer need the container. At Containers First we pride ourselves in ticking the box on the above 7 items (and more!) so that you get the best value and service.
