There are many reasons to survey your shipping containers: If you ever want to send your container(s) overseas by ship, rail or truck, then a survey is mandatory. Even if you're not planning on transporting your containers now, your situation may change. A survey ensures that the container(s) you're buying are inspected by a licensed 3rd party who will inspect, photograph and certify they are safe and truly cargo-worthy.
WITH YOUR SURVEY, YOU WILL RECEIVE:
Photos of your container inside and out.
Official certification paperwork stating that your container is cargo worthy.
ACEP affixed sticker with valid certificate numbers and online verification.
