Portable storage containers (i.e. retired shipping containers) are incredibly versatile in their possible uses and applications. They are made from cor-ten steel (with some exceptions), making them very sturdy and long lasting. Portable storage containers are generally easier to ship, deliver and install than other modular options given their simplistic construction.
Container Dimensions: Portable storage containers are generally 8 ft wide and can vary in length anywhere from 5 to 53 ft. A standard container opens on one end but there are countless variations that may exist on specialty containers.
Container Condition: The portable storage container industry largely uses standard condition designations. Those are "New/One Trip", "Cargo Worthy", "Wind & Water Tight" and 'As Is."
