40ft Container Conditions

Boxhub's 40ft shipping containers are available in three different conditions: wind & watertight (used, not eligible for shipping), cargo-worthy (used, eligible for shipping), and one-trip (as new).

Wind & Watertight

These units have been retired from shipping.

They typically have patches of surface rust or slight cosmetic damage, but their floors are intact, their doors seal properly, and they’re guaranteed watertight, meaning they’ll work fine for storing goods during your move. These are the most budget-friendly containers on the market.


These units have previously been used, but can still be certified to ship cargo overseas.

While they may show some exterior signs of wear, all of Boxhub’s cargo-worthy containers are inspected for structural integrity, so they’ll work just fine for storing and transporting items while you’re moving house. They’re also less expensive than new containers.

One Trip (New)

These units have only been used once to ship a single load of dry cargo overseas. They’re the newest, nicest containers you can buy - and the priciest.

Built to last 25-30 years, they’re ideal if you plan to convert your container into an additional living space or long-term storage unit on your property after you’ve moved into your new home.

Love our new storage container! The process was easy and there was no surprises or hidden obstacles

The containers were in really great shape... Nice hard work floors! Thanks!

The unit was clean and just what I wanted. I will purchase another one before long.

For a used Container it is in great shape, the floors are in great shape as well.

The unit is actually MUCH nicer than I expected. The interior looks like it had just been refinished

[Requires] only cosmetic maintenance, and has proven weathertight...
