Used Shipping Containers
for Sale

Used shipping containers are secure, cost effective portable storage solutions for businesses or individuals. They are structurally sound, fully functional and watertight which makes them ideal long term storage solutions.

Shipping containers are commonly referred to as sea cans or “c can”. Shipping containers are steel structures that are used for the shipment, storage & handling of goods across the globe. Shipping containers are built by shipping lines for the purpose of transporting goods by cargo ship and generally circulate for approximately 10 to 14 years. Once they have served their primary transport purpose, they are retired from circulation and sold to companies that specialize in portable storage solutions such as ATS Containers. The used shipping containers that are no longer in circulation are repurposed. These containers retain their original factory features such as a durable steel structure that can withhold heavy payloads (up to 67,200 lbs) and security features which make them an ideal mobile storage solution.
