    If you’re on the hunt for the perfect solution to move or store your belongings, you’ve come to the right place. Perhaps you have considered a shed, a pole building, a trailer, or a moving truck.  At Get Simple Box, we take pride in offering top-notch shipping containers for sale and container rentals that go beyond just steel walls. Let’s take a closer look at the features of modern shipping containers that make them an ideal choice for such a wide range of applications.

    Diverse Sizes to Suit Your Needs

    One of the standout features of modern shipping containers is their diverse range of sizes. Whether you’re moving a small apartment, a large household, or just need some extra storage space, there is a container that can fit your needs. There is likely a container size that will fit your requirements perfectly.



    Don’t worry if you’re not sure which size is right for you; the team at your local container company can assist you in finding the perfect fit.

    Robust and Weather-Resistant Construction

    Gone are the days when shipping containers were simply metal boxes. Today’s containers are engineered with high-quality materials and built to exact specifications, making them incredibly durable and weather-resistant. Built out of Corten steel, our containers are designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions, ensuring your belongings stay safe and secure, no matter what mother nature throws their way. A thick rubber gasket seals up the door so that rain or shine, you can trust a shipping container to protect your precious cargo.

    Customizable Options

    Shipping containers aren’t limited to a one-size-fits-all approach anymore. We understand that each customer has unique needs, which is why we offer customizable options. Whether you need extra ventilation, additional doors, or specific interior modifications, a container can be tailored to meet your exact requirements. Adding features such as extra doors and insulation would be much harder to do in a Van, Trailer, or Shed!

    If you are considering customizing your shipping container, be sure to choose a local container company that can add windows and doors for you. A good container company will have experienced installers and can work together to create the perfect container for you.

    On Site Storage Solutions

    While shipping containers are built to move and transport goods across oceans, they have also become a popular choice for on-site storage. Need some extra space for your home renovation project? Looking for a secure place to store inventory for your business? A container rental may provide long term on site storage without the need for building a structure or renting space from a traditional mini storage unit. 

    WARNING: after 25 years in the business, we have heard many horror stories from people who have paid for a container on Craigslist, only to discover that the company took their money and had no way of delivering it. We recommend choosing a container company that does their own deliveries so that you can be sure the containers are placed exactly where you want them for on site storage.

    Budget Friendly and Eco-Friendly

    Eliminating waste is a core value for Get Simple Box. We simply don’t want our customers to have to pay extra for waste or defects. But our values go so much further than just eliminating waste – we want our customers to have great value on a quality product. 

    Besides being incredibly convenient, we believe shipping containers help us be good stewards of our resources:

    • Containers are built to last
    • Containers can be used again and again
    • Containers have environmentally friendly flooring and paint
    • Containers can be repurposed into other structures rather than thrown away.

    Additionally, Shipping containers hold their value well and often cost less than a mini-storage rental. 

    Mobility and Flexibility

    In today’s fast-paced world, mobility and flexibility are required. Projects change. Plans change. Closing dates change. In the words of Heraclitus, “it often seems the only constant is change!” Shipping containers offer the flexibility that you need to navigate that change.

    At Get Simple Box, one of our guarantees is that “if your plans change, we change with you.” If you’re moving to a new city, whether it’s across town or across the country, you can easily transport your container with all your belongings. This saves you time, effort, and money compared to traditional moving services. If your project is placed on hold, you can rest easy knowing that your tools and supplies can be easily moved to another job site without requiring extra labor to unload and load into trucks or storage warehouses. 

    In conclusion, modern shipping containers have evolved far beyond their traditional role. They are versatile, customizable, and cost-effective solutions for both moving and storage needs. Whether you’re looking to Rent, Move, or Buy a container, start by getting a quote for Container prices.
