Tech Talk: Container Sizes, Specs & Storage Space
10’ Storage Container
20’ Storage Container
40’ Storage Container
40’ High Cube
What are the different sizes of storage containers for sale that we offer? In addition to the most common container sizes—including standard 20 ft and 40 ft shipping containers and 40 ft High Cube units—we also offer 10 ft, 45 ft and 53 ft storage container sizes. The noticeable difference between the different size containers is their length, which impacts their storage capacity AND the required amount of on-site storage space.
Now when it comes to storage use, there’s almost no difference between a standard 40ft and 40ft High Cube shipping container. The only difference is that a High Cube container has an extra foot of overhead space.
With 12 more inches of vertical storage capacity, High Cube containers are sometimes used to accommodate oversized, bulky and/or awkwardly-sized storage items.

The Nitty Gritty: Container Conditions and Grades
With a variety of shipping container conditions and grades available, not all storage containers are the same.
So what are the different container conditions and grades available and their practical benefits?
And which is right for you?
Get the Storage Container Condition That Fits Your Needs
One-Trip (New) Units
One-Trip storage containers are as close as you can get to a brand spanking new shipping container without having to pay double, triple or even more for one built in the U.S.
“One-Trip” means the storage container has made a single trip carrying cargo from China, where shipping containers are manufactured, to a port near you.
✓ Manufactured new at the point of origin in Asia
✓ Fresh coat of paint and sturdy steel doors that easily swing open and shut
✓ Used only once when shipping from the overseas manufacturer
Designed to go toe to toe up against the most volatile and relentless weather conditions, WWT units are the most popular shipping container condition repurposed for secure (yet still affordable) on-site portable storage. While these units are no longer actively used to transport cargo overseas, WWT containers are a silver bullet, go-to solution for both temporary and long-term solution.
Our WWT storage containers are characterized by:
✓ 100% Corten weathering steel
✓ Reinforced floors designed to withstand heavy and frequent use
✓ Galvanized paint resistant to rust, corrosion and weather damage
✓ Long-term performance as on-site storage containers
Reconditioned (Refurbished) Units
Want a nice-looking container but don’t want to pay for a One-Trip unit?
Reconditioned storage containers are WWT units that we carefully refurbished in our storage yard by removing any dings and dents and giving them a fresh coat of resilient, Direct-to-Metal (DTM) paint.
✓ Fresh coat of direct-to-metal (DTM) paint
✓ Locking bars, brackets and door seals in good working condition
✓ Locally inspected and repaired to Wind and WaterTight (WWT) condition
✓ Power sprayed, patched, spot primed and sanded
✓ Surface rust ground off
✓ No holes or major dents
✓ Container rests flat on the surface
Cargo Worthy (CW, ISO-certified) Units
Containers in Cargo Worthy condition have been thoroughly examined by a certified Institute of International Container Lessors IICL inspector.
A certified Cargo Worthy shipping container means the unit has met the criteria outlined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). As such, Cargo Worthy storage containers can be used to transport cargo and storage items across any mode of transportation, whether it’s via truck, train, or ship.
✓ Can be used ship/transport cargo and your storage items
✓ Structurally sound and in Wind and WaterTight (WWT) condition
✓ No holes or major dents
✓ The container sits flat on the ground/surface
As Is (B-Grade) Units
Up for a gamble? Willing to take a chance on a storage container with no guarantees but for a substantially lower price? If you’re willing to roll the dice, As Is containers may or may not bring up the perfect Yahtzee for you.
But then again, you’re flying blind when getting a storage container for sale in As-Is condition. In full transparency, you’re banking on your odds when you purchase an As-Is unit. You might get a storage container with holes that’s not wind and watertight, which leaves your storage items vulnerable to outside elements. But then again, you never know. You could come up on top with a perfectly structurally- and functionally-sound storage container for a bargain price.

If a used container we offer has any defects or is not guaranteed to be Wind and WaterTight (WWT) after marine use, we offer repair services. Our repair processes are designed to identify and rectify any issues and are managed in accordance with the procedures specified by the IICL.

How to Get the Most Bang for Your Buck
What about the cost of storage containers for sale? Well, that depends on a variety of factors, including add-on, types of finishes, and your container provider’s connections in the shipping container industry. Typically, however, to get the most bang for your buck without skimping on quality, going with a standard 20ft or 40ft container, or even a 40ft High Cube container, in Wind and WaterTight (WWT) condition is your best bet because they’re the most commonly-used, readily-available and structurally-sound storage containers.
