Generally all used shipping containers have varying degrees for wear & tear, from minor cosmetic dents and scratches to surface rust, visible damage and past repairs. To help with your decision most used containers are graded to identify the condition. We label ours Standard, Premium & Export Grade and of course there is always the option to buy BRAND NEW.

Shipping containers are painted in a many colours. Green, blue, grey, red and brown are common colours.
