Frequently asked questions
How much does it cost to buy a used shipping container?
The cost of a used container will depend on its condition, size and features.
How long do used shipping containers last?
A used container can typically last up between 10 – 12 years at sea. It’s important to note that a shipping container’s lifespan can be reduced by constant exposure to moisture.
If it’s maintained well, the container can last up to 25 years. You can upkeep it by conducting routine inspections, removing rust and refurbishing it through priming and painting.
Are shipping containers waterproof?
Most shipping containers are designed to be watertight, which means that they don’t allow any water to enter and damage the stored goods.
On the other hand, waterproof containers are simply covered in a water-resistant coating. There’s still a chance that water can leak into a waterproof container and affect its contents.
Therefore, a shipping container should ideally be both waterproof and watertight. If you wish to find out more details about our used containers, get in touch with us now!
What should a shipping container sit on?
It’s recommended that you store a used shipping container off the ground as this will prevent it from coming into contact with damp ground caused by wet weather.
By doing so, it reduces any risk of the container absorbing moisture and becoming damaged.
