We offer a wide variety of 20ft shipping containers and 40ft shipping containers in Boston, ranging from one-trip, cargo-worthy, to wind & watertight units. We also offer conex containers and cargo containers. In order to find the right shipping container for your needs, it’s important to understand the three types of containers Boxhub can source.

Used: Having spent anywhere from 12 to 18 years at sea, used wind & watertight containers include fully functioning doors and floors — making this type of unit ideal for static storage uses.

New: A new, or one-trip, type of container has only made a single trip to transport goods across the United States and doesn’t require upfront painting or maintenance.

Both new and used containers can be certified to ship freight across the ocean. CSC shipping certification is an at-cost service provided by Boxhub upon request. Whether for static storage or to construct a tiny home, we have the perfect solution for you. All available in 20ft or 40ft containers.
