Types of 20 Ft Containers for Sale

Containers are graded based on a variety of factors. Here's the most common container grades:

  • One Trip New Containers - These are the newest conex containers you can get in the United States. Steel containers are typically manufactured in China and then shipped full of cargo once on a cargo ship to the US. They are usually about one year old and may have minor scratches or dents, but in general they look nearly brand new.
  • CWO / Cargo Worthy Containers - These are slightly older but they conform to International Maritime Organization standards for cargo shipping. These containers have slight rust and dings, but structurally they are in great shape.
  • WWT / Wind & Water Tight Containers - Guaranteed to be wind and waterproof. They can be stacked while empty, but not while full. They will have rust, dents and scratches, but they are perfect for safely storing things.

20 Ft Steel Shipping Containers vs. PODS Portable Storage Containers

Our 20 ft shipping containers are constructed with durable, 12 gauge steel compared to aluminum for PODS portable storage containers. Steel shipping containers are built for tough climates and are ideal for construction site storage, while PODS containers are better kept in climate controlled warehouses. We will not move your steel storage container to another location. PODS and other portable storage companies will typically move your unit to another location which makes them great for small household or office moves. Portable storage companies like PODS typically do not have 20 ft containers, they usually offer 8 ft, 12 ft and 16 ft units.
