How To Buy Quality Used Shipping Containers

Taking a quick glance at a used shipping container and quickly deciding to purchase it is probably not the smartest move. Instead, giving the container a thorough analysis before making your decision is something that our team at Midwest Storage Containers encourages. Our team is not here to sell you something that doesn’t meet your expectations. Instead, we’re here to listen and help you make sure that you see all of the options in the specific grade you are interested in. When looking for a used shipping container to purchase, some important keys to remember include:
Get to Know the Container – Go inside and close yourself in the container. Does it look to be wind and watertight? If there is any rust visible, is it surface rust or something more alarming? Do the container doors work well? How is the flooring? Finding out about the fine detail regarding your potential used container before making the purchase can limit any potential headaches down the road.
Take a Whiff – When you enter the container, how does it smell? At Midwest Storage Containers, we are confident in the used containers that we offer, but you never know with our competitors. Make sure there are no foul odors or contamination inside the used container.
What Will You Be Using the Container For – Our conex containers come in a variety of grades, depending on what type of shipping you plan to do with the container. These grades include the One Trip/New, Cargo-Worthy, Wind & Watertight and As Is.
