There are some important things to consider when purchasing ISO Standard shipping containers for custom design or just simple storage. We are pleased to share a few facts and many experiences with any interested party, and I trust the info provided herein will be of value.
An intermodal container (another name for shipping containers) is a large standardized shipping container, designed and built for intermodal freight transport, meaning these containers can be used across different modes of transport – from ship to rail to truck – without unloading and reloading their cargo. These ISO Standard containers are primarily used to store and transport materials and products efficiently and securely in the global containerized intermodal freight transport system, but smaller numbers are in regional use as well. These containers are known under a number of names, such as simply container, cargo or freight container, ISO container, shipping, sea or ocean container, sea van or (Conex) box, sea can or c can.
As you consider purchasing a cargo container please accept that these informative notes are only part of a continuous work in progress. I will add and-or change the content based on always changing “Do’s and Dont’s” and lessons learned.
We invite everyone to come to the table and share ideas and accomplishments relating to container use. Our website is SecureSpaceSolutions.com and will often undergo positive changes that will provide important updates concerning the nearly unlimited use of recycled shipping containers.

We accept that Cargo containers are not for everyone! Even though they are very secure and versatile some folks just can’t agree that a recycled shipping container is a chattel worth having.
If you were to record most of my sales conversations, you would often hear me say “let’s face it they are not what you call a thing of beauty when they come off the boat.” Truth is, used boxes have dents, damage, and-or saltwater rust that makes them very unattractive. Another truth is that when they are modified, refurbished and painted most buyers find them very acceptable. Then there are the new units aka. “ONE TRIP UNITS” (see Sales/Rentals) that are as good as you can buy. I guess the old saying “don’t judge a book by its cover” is applicable for a while yet.
