Why People Love Our 40ft Containers

See what our customers had to say after purchasing 40ft containers from Boxhub.

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...
