About 20FT Shipping Containers

20ft containers are designed to carry small volumes of heavy cargo, such as machinery, cement and steel. These qualities make them ideal for the storage of large items — like farming and construction equipment — or re-use as the frame of a modular home.

20FT Container Conditions

Boxhub's 20ft shipping containers are available in three different conditions: wind & watertight (well used), cargo-worthy (gently used), and one-trip (as new).

Wind & Watertight

Containers that have been retired from shipping. They are typically 10-15 years old.

20ft wind & watertight containers show clear evidence of wear (e.g., scratches, dents, surface rust) but are guaranteed to be watertight, with doors that seal properly.


Containers that are used, but can still be certified to ship goods across the ocean.

20ft cargo-worthy containers show less evidence of wear compared to wind & watertights. They are guaranteed to pass a maritime surveyor's inspection, if desired.

One-Trip (New)

Containers that have only shipped one single load of dry cargo to the U.S.

20ft one-trip containers are built to last decades, with no upfront maintenance/painting required. They are ideal for tiny home/office projects or placement in highly visible areas.
