The History Of

We began as a group of nerds determined to revolutionize the shipping container industry. We liquidated our savings, purchased the world-class Shipped.com domain name and created an efficient marketplace to help buyers learn about shipping containers and purchase them online. Later, we expanded to offering rent to own shipping containers and we figured out how to push the cost of containers for sale down to wholesale levels. You're going to love our direct checkout using the latest digital shopping cart technology and our friendly support staff is available 24/7 for your needs. We're very proud to have grown into the world's largest shipping container marketplace. A special thank you to all our customers - your loyalty, business and friendships are greatly appreciated.

 CWO (Certified/IICL/CSC Plated/Cargo Worthy) Containers

CWO containers are currently being used to transport cargo domestically or overseas. They are generally between 3-8 years of age and while there may be dents, scratches, repaired sections or cosmetic imperfections, structurally these containers are of a very high quality. A cargo worthy container can be certified by a licensed surveyor and used to continue transporting cargo. Inspection criteria is based on the condition of the doors, floor, walls, ceiling and the structural integrity. You can expect a 10% to 25% price premium vs a "WWT" container. Regardless if you plan to ship your container or not, a CWO container will guarantee that you will receive a unit that is structurally sound.

 "WWT" (Wind and Water Tight) Containers

Wind and Water Tight containers have been used to move cargo on the high seas. Most are retired after 8-12 years of service and are ready for a new owner. WWT containers are ideal for home/business storage, container homes and a multitude of other uses. You can lock yourself inside the container and not see any light coming in. There will be cosmetic imperfections, exterior rust, dents, dings, patch work and the roof bows may not be perfect. Nevertheless, the doors will properly open and close and the floor will worn but in good condition. These containers have a lot of inherent value and will likely retain 100% of their price when resold later. WWT boxes are a great choice when you want a guaranteed wind and water tight container at the lowest possible price!

 "Damaged" AS-IS Containers

AS-IS / Damaged units have major damage. These containers have missing sections of steel, advanced rust causing structural integrity problems, doors that don't fully open or close, rotten floors or other serious problems. They are typically sold for recycling the steel or specific projects. Shipped.com does NOT offer damaged containers for sale.
