Purchase a Container: Benefits and Considerations to Keep in Mind
Shipping containers are versatile, cost-effective, and provide solutions beyond just shipping. They can be used for storage or conversion projects, making it advantageous for businesses to purchase a container of their own. At Cargo Shipping International (CSI), we assist clients in selecting and purchasing containers that meet their specifications and needs.
BENEFITS OF PURCHASING A SHIPPING CONTAINER
Purchasing a container can provide several benefits, including:
- Cost-effective solution for short- and long-term projects.
- Containers can last for years, even decades, with proper maintenance, offering a substantial return on investment.
- Containers can be easily transported, making it convenient to move from one site to another.
CONSIDERATIONS WHILE PURCHASING A SHIPPING CONTAINER
When purchasing a shipping container, a few factors need to be considered to ensure that your investment is secure and that you receive a premium-quality container. Some considerations include:
- Deciding on the size of the container that you need. Most containers are available in 20 feet to 40 feet or 40’ HC (High Cube).
- Choosing the grade of the container. Container types can be categorized into four: One-Tippers, Cargo Worthy, Wind and Water Tight (WWT), and As-Is containers.
- Choosing a reliable seller to secure your investment and ensure that you receive a premium quality container that offers longevity.
- Preparing your site for drop-off. Decide where you will place the container. If you plan to use it outside, ensure that airflow is maintained underneath it.
