Where to buy Shipping/Storage Containers?
Posted January 01, 2011 - 07:26 PM
I would like to purchase some shipping containers for storage. I'm in the middle of PA so i don't have any good suppliers in my area for them. I would either like to purchase one or two, or find a good source for some. I have checked into some on evilbay, and they all come across as scams to me.
If you have some to sell, or a good reputable supplier let me know, thanks

In my opinion, semi-trailers are a real good option. At one time, if you didn't want the axles and wheels, you could take them out and sell them. I think a friend of mine got $200,00 a set back from the trucking company. Besides that you can inspect and get fairly good ones.
Just my opinion, George

i'd like a 20' size, but after looking into prices, it seems its as cheap, or cheaper to purchase a 40' unit. But lets be honest, bigger is always better..haha I'm not really interested in old semi trailers, these shipping containers are really built well, and heavy. I like that they can be moved easily, and they can be customized with a little work, and still be very strong.

i guess my worries were scammers, thats why i made the post. I didn't want to go into a sale with some no name guy in jersey and hope he would come through. I actually emailed a "business" thats advertises on ebay, and i sent the email to the companies website address, and i received a reply from a completely different name from a "gmail" account, and thats a major red flag. Like i mentioned in the previous post, i'm not interested in semi trailers, theres always a possibility these units may need to be moved, and they can be very easily lifted with a crane, or a big forklift, and i think semi's aren't that structurally built for that. thanks though!

The picture shows it loaded on a trailer.
The pricing is close to fight, but I wonder what delivery would run you.
