40FT Container Conditions

Boxhub's 40ft 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.

40ft 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.

Cargo Worthy

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

40ft 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.

40ft 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.
