Locating shipping containers for sale has been made much easier by the advent of the internet but with so many options to choose from how do you go about selecting the right container for you?

One of the biggest factors to determine the right container for you will depend a lot on what you intend to use it for. Most of us are familiar with the standard shipping containers that we see on roads and ships but did you know there are many other types of containers available?

Examples of other types of containers for sale:

Tunnel with doors at both ends

Open top containers

Open side

Refrigerated for storage at -25° to +25°


Most companies offer the choice of buying new or used containers although the price difference is not as dramatic as you may have first thought.

Once you have decided which type of container you want to buy then it can be a very good idea to ask the seller for images of their product so that you can get an idea of the quality before you purchase.

Prices tend to fluctuate month to month depending on the market so the best idea is to contact a supplier to check their latest offer.

Here is a round up of my advice:

Research which type of container will best suit your needs

Compare prices of new and used options

Ask the seller for images of their containers for sale
