Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the delivery time frame?
We work with top delivery companies that are quick and effective. Usually we deliver containers within a week, however we always want to let our customers know to allow up to 2 weeks in case of bad weather or any unexpected situations.
What is the condition of a used container?
Used containers come in different levels of quality. Used containers are leak free and in “storage-condition” which means that you can keep your “stuff” dry. Even though most used containers look good from the outside, there are some with more dents than others or more rust than others, however they won’t have any holes. We sell “Cargo Worthy” containers. Some companies call them “WWT” or “Wind and Watertight”

Reused shipping containers have been turned into houses, hotels, storage units, stores, restaurants, food trucks, green houses, schools, libraries, and even art studios, by modifying them and welding them on top of each other or side by side.
Reusing shipping containers, and turning them into buildings, can prevent the use of bricks and cement as the production of cement is a major source of CO2. It can also help reduce the usage of steel.
One of the most significant advantages of reusing a shipping container is that they are very affordable, and can be built incredibly fast. Instead of building a house, renting a place, or investing in land, shipping containers can be bought for a much cheaper price, and can easily be moved if needed.
Controlling the temperature is one of the biggest challenges of reusing a shipping container, especially as a housing unit. As a result of the steel, containers easily absorb both cold and heat, which means the temperatures easily get very low in winter, and too high in summer. So, insulation is a very important process, and needs to be done carefully.
Containers are not corrosion or rust-proof, they need continuous care and attention. The reaction between steel, water, and oxygen can cause rust and corrosion on containers. Various Climate conditions may speed up this process. The weather needs to be mostly dry, not too rainy and wet, to avoid these issues. You can power wash and clean the container or paint it to extend its life
