WHY BUY

Because our shipping containers can be used for many different purposes, we cater to our customers’ needs by offering them a choice: they can buy their shipping containers or they can rent them. For some of our clients, this is a very important decision and we want to make it easier! To help everybody understand what’s involved in making each of these two choices, we recently wrote a blog article to discuss the advantages of renting a shipping container. Now, we are writing this article to discuss the advantages of purchasing a shipping container.

A NEW 40' OPEN SIDE CONTAINER HAS ARRIVED!

The container itself measures 40’ in length and 9’6” in height and can carry a payload of just over 40,000 lbs. It features 16 weatherproof vents that ventilate the entirety of the container to reduce moisture and prevent condensation from forming. The vents are strategically placed to allow air to flow throughout the container even if partitions are made inside it to create separate storage.

THE GREENER SIDE OF SHIPPING CONTAINERS

If we told you that shipping containers can actually benefit the environment, would you believe us?

Many people wouldn’t! Despite their large physical size, shipping containers actually have a very small environmental footprint. Because they were originally designed to transport cargo in harsh ocean conditions, they are built with weather resistant materials to prolong their usable life.

ON THE MOVE IN THE SIX

Being the largest wholesale provider of new and used storage containers in Canada comes with a unique set of challenges. Recently, we encountered a new one!

Our increasingly large and diverse fleet of containers available for sale and for rental meant our five-acre facility in Mississauga, ON could no longer keep up with our needs. To continue providing you with the best experience possible, we decided to upgrade our facility.
