If you're looking to transport goods domestically or internationally, Boxhub will source a cargo-worthy shipping container in the size of your choice. Each unit is watertight, easy to load, and durable — no matter the length of the shipment.


A shipping container can do more than transport your belongings to your next home — it can also double as storage after the move is complete. Whether you're moving across Michigan or across the country, our specialists will help you find the right moving shipping container for your needs.

Detroit's food scene is ever-evolving, and shipping containers are playing a part. These containers can be transformed into trendy cafes, bistros, or food stalls, offering a distinctive dining experience.

We offer a variety of shipping containers for sale in Detroit. Our inventory includes one-trip and wind & watertight conex boxes, which come in 20ft and 40ft standard and high cube sizes.

One-trip containers have only been used once to transport goods across the United States. They don't require any maintenance or painting, which makes them ideal for constructing container homes and offices.

Used containers, on the other hand, have been at sea for 12 to 18 years but are still in good condition, with functioning doors and floors. They are excellent for static storage purposes.

Both new and used containers can be certified for international freight shipping. We can provide CSC shipping certification at an additional cost upon request. Learn more about CSC container certification.
