Sale Containers

When purchasing a storage container, it's important to understand the different categories of containers available. With this knowledge you'll be able to choose the best container for your needs.

We offer three categories of containers based primarily on age and condition. Newer units generally cost more than older ones. The three types of containers are described in detail below.

Wind and Water Tight (WWT) Storage Containers — B Grade

Wind and water tight storage containers, sometimes called "B grade" containers, are the most affordable option. These containers have previously been used in cargo transport but are generally no longer suitable for this purpose.

IICL Containers for sale

The main advantage? Price.
These containers are the most affordable option.

WWT sale containers are:

  • Typically 15 years old or more
  • Often labeled with shipping line logos
  • Come in a variety of colors
  • Frequently rusted and dented from heavy use

IICL Shipping / Storage Containers — A Grade

IICL stands for the Institute of International Container Lessors. IICL shipping / storage containers, sometimes called "A grade" containers, must meet standards based on inspection criteria set by the IICL. IICL containers are in good condition and are suitable for both shipping and storage.
