WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A USED SHIPPING CONTAINER?

​Contrary to popular belief, used shipping containers provide excellent secure, dry storage.

When purchasing a used shipping container, you can expect a sturdy, robust steel structure with no holes. You can expect a fully weather proof ex shipping container with fully working door gear, vents and a marine ply floor.
