Financing Your Shipping Container(s)

Shipping container ownership is something you can be proud of for many reasons, but sometimes the initial cost can be of concern. We are proud to offer various financing options for you to acquire the shipping container of your dreams. Whether you are looking to finance one of our designs or come to us with one of your own, we have solutions for you. Take a look at our options below.

In House Financing

Our first option for financing your shipping container home or office is to finance with our in-house financial team. These projects will require 50% upfront to kick off the build and our standard term is 2 years. For example, taking our 40 ft Alpine model, your mortgage would be calculated close to the following:

  • Base Price - $34,500
  • Services & Fees - Variable According to Specs
  • 50% Deposit - Half of Sum from Above
  • Term - 2 Years
  • Approximate Monthly Payments - $875

As you can see, these can be much more enticing than traditional home financing and are far shorter terms than their 15 or 30 year counterparts. This is a great option for those who have some money to throw down up front, but still need some flexibility in finalizing the cost. This removes any external services from the mix and you only deal with us. If you have the cash to put down initially, this option is a no-brainer for financing.

Third Party Financing

We offer options to finance through third party providers as well through Billd and Lightstream financing. We have done our due diligence to find the best opportunities for you to make your money stretch as far as possible. These options have to do a soft pull (no credit impact) to pull your rates and understand what type of borrower you have been in the past. These are competitive options and can fully fund a shipping container project as long as it is not cost prohibitive. An example of a cost prohibitive build would be a multi-container build requiring hours of work, design, welding, and more. These options can cost more than traditional stick and frame homes in many cases.

Our goal here at Bob’s Containers is to keep our customers from making bad decisions and to get them into the shipping container home or office they have been dreaming of. The financing options we provide are a gateway into the world of shipping containers and, we have to say, its a pretty nice world.
