Buy Container Designs for Construction

When buying storage containers, the first consideration is determining whether a cargo-worthy, refurbished or one trip fits your needs and budget. Cargo-worthy containers are a good value. They are wind-resistant and water-tight and typically under 10 years old. Refurbished containers are a better value. They are spot-grinded, primed and repainted with a high-grade industrial enamel and come wind and watertight with standard 4 bar, 8 cam locking system. One trip (new) containers are the best value. They only made one cargo trip. This is the newest possible option to buy. ISO shipping containers are not manufactured in the US.
