2. What size do I need?

This depends on the amount of space you have available for its staging. Our most common sizes are 20′ and 40′ in length. All containers are available in various conditions and price ranges.

3. With what materials was my shipping container constructed?

Your container was constructed from 14-16 gauge Corten steel, and designed with corrugated roof and walls. Thick hardwood plank (1.1/2″) or ply mounted flooring was placed on top of steel cross fixtures.
Additional support is provided by substantial center beams (12″). These containers were originally engineered and built according to strict maritime transport standards. Your cargo will be protected.
