Shipping Container Types

We only sell used containers that are rated "cargo-worthy (CWO)" which means:
- Working cargo doors with good seals
- No leaks or holes
- Strong and functional floors

New containers are also available at request.

Can I Visit the Yard and See My Shipping Container?

We currently do not offer retail hours during due to the pandemic. We send you photos and you have the right of refusal upon delivery if it does not meet your expectations.

How Long Does it Take to Deliver My Shipping Container?

It depends on two main factors - location and type of container. For simple storage containers, 1-3 days is a safe estimate. For custom builds such as container offices or container homes, 2-3 weeks is standard. We can also expedite shipping if you are located near the major cities we serve - Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, Denver, and Columbus.

What if I Don't See the Custom Build Options that I want?

If you want something that's not on our website, call or email us! We have an excellent crew, and we are confident that we can do most modifications on container homes and offices. 

Can I Sell You the Container that I Purchased from You?

Yes! If you no longer need your container for whatever reason, we will make you an offer based on the condition of the container. We will need to see some photos to make our assessment. Regardless of whether you purchased the container from us or someone else, we would be interested in taking a look!

Is My Container Home or Office Built with a New or Used Container?

It's up to you! For more details on which type to choose, check out our blog on this topic here.
