Used Shipping Container FAQ
Purchasing used storage containers isn't easy, and if you haven't purchased one before you probably have a lot of questions. Here are some of the most common questions customers ask when they are buying a used storage container:
How Much Does a Used Storage Container Typically Cost?
You can expect to pay anywhere from $1,000 for a smaller container, and over $4,000 on units 40' and longer. Prices fluctuate with demand, and there is currently a shortage(there has been since 2008), so prices keep going up. The best way to get a good deal is to shop around.
Do Used Storage Containers Come With a Warranty?
It depends what company you purchase from. If you are buying it on Craigslist or from a private seller you will almost certainly have no warranty(but you will pay less for it). If you buy a used storage container from one of the bigger companies in the industry they will often come with a warranty for standard things. Warranties typically cover the door hinges, the container itself, and it's ability to remain water tight.
How Much Does Delivery Cost?
Deliveries can range anywhere from $100-$200 for local
deliveries(usually around 100 miles from your location), to a few
thousand dollars if its being shipped hundreds or even thousands
of miles. Always consider the cost of delivery when researching
prices, it usually makes sense to go with a local supplier.
