About 40ft Used Shipping Containers

Need a spacious storage solution that doesn’t break the bank? Look no further than a 40ft used shipping container. 40ft used containers have been retired from international shipping after an average of 15-20 years at sea. While these containers are no longer recommended for stacking, they’re perfect for re-use as single-story storage units —  a cheap and convenient alternative to renting a storage unit or building a garage/shed.

In international shipping, 40ft freight containers are used to carry large quantities of lightweight goods — like cotton, electronics, and consumer furniture. These qualities make them ideal for storing high-volume items such as household items, retail inventory, or construction materials.

Looking for a 40ft container to convert into a home, cabin, or gym? We recommend purchasing a 40ft new shipping container instead.
