New 40 ft Container

New 40′ containers often come in light gray or tan color. The nice thing about starting with a brand new Box is that since it has just made one trip across the ocean (called a “one-tripper” in the container industry), it typically has little to no dings, dents, or rust. New 40 foot containers are typically cleaner and have several years of cargo-worthy certification (they can be shipped overseas).

Used 40 Foot Shipping Containers

Our used 40 foot containers typically come in dark red, blue, or green color. All of our 40 ft Containers are available in both standard height (8′ 6″) or “High Cube” (one foot taller at 9′ 6″). Because these containers have made many trips across the ocean, roadways, and railways, expect them to have plenty of dings, dents, and scratches. Some used containers can be re-certified for shipping overseas (called “Cargo-worthy” in the container industry), but must be surveyed and certified cargo-worthy prior to purchase.
