What Type of Container Do You Need?
Shipping containers are used to ship goods across the ocean and are built to withstand the harshness of transportion over the ocean. So if you use a container, you don't have to worry about weather damaging your items.
When choosing a container, you need to decide on the size and condition.
Sizes and Dimensions
The standard lengths of shipping containers are 20 foot and 40 foot.
The standard height is 8 and 1/2 feet tall. High cubes are 1 foot taller at 9 and 1/2 feet tall.
The table belows shows the average dimensions fo containers.
Containers come in three different grades. The grades tell you how much a container was used s used to transport goods. The amount of use determines how much wear and tear each container sustained on its travels.
• "New One-Trip" containers are "Grade A." The were used one time to ship products from the manufacturring country to the port destination.
There may be a few scratches and dents.
• "Cargo Worthy" are "Grade B" containers. Cargo Worthy have been used several times to transport goods.

We deliver containers with a tilt bed trailer. Ensure there are no overhead obstacles (at least 14 ft clearance) such as trees, building overhangs, utility lines, etc. We can not guarantee no damage if there are obstacles in the way.
We need at least 125 feet of a clear path (no sharp turns) to drop a 40 Ft container, 90 feet for a 20 Ft container.
We allow 30 minutes for dropping the container. We charge $100 for each 30 minutes thereafter.
Please ensure your location is ready for delivery. We will drop containers on any surface, however, we recommend one of the following surfaces:
1) Road base material for a flat drop
