Shipping containers are sometimes described as the wonder storage product. They can be used to hold and move all sorts of products. They’re durable and weather-resistant. They also have uses beyond industrial and transport, everything from secure home workshops to a place for retailers to temporarily stash extra inventory.
Part of the appeal is their adaptability. The corrugated steel containers can be moved easily by train, trucks, ships, even helicopter, stacked if needed and built to withstand extreme heat and cold, high winds, even earthquakes.
The popularity of shipping containers is also due to different types and sizes. The standard type is “dry,” which usually features one set of doors at one end. Basic dry containers usually come in 20- or 40-foot sizes.
Some containers are designed to hold different types of products. For instance, some containers can transport product that needs to be stored differently, including liquids. So that’s why some can be found that are refrigerated or insulated. Other options include Tanktainers, which can hold liquid, and “modified” containers that can carry several types at once.
Every business sector can find a wide variety of uses for their shipping containers for purchase or rental.
Companies needing extra space or a place for seasonal items that there may not be room for right now but will be needed in the future. They also can provide:
- A place for store inventory and furnishings during a construction.
- A spot to keep products for certain regular sales.
- Extra showroom space to show how products look put together (furniture, décor, etc.)
- A place for too much inventory that won’t fit in your main location.

- Additional storage, especially tools, equipment or seasonal décor.
