Portable Storage Units – Different Styles
When you are in the market to purchase a shipping container for use as storage, there are a couple of things that you need to be aware of. One of the key things is the variety of styles and sizes:
- 10 foot: The smallest of the standard sizes
- 20 foot: This is the most commonly found shipping container sizes
- 40 foot: This is the largest container and the second most commonly used size
- Dry units
- Refrigerated units
You should never purchase from containers from companies sight unseen – visit the business and check the condition of the container you are thinking of buying before you part with your cash.
Shipping containers are extremely strong and durable, but some of them have taken a real beating by the time they are decommissioned and put up for sale. For this reason it is very important to check the container closely before you make a purchase and when you make a purchase note down the serial number and check it when it is delivered to you.
Storage containers are very affordable, which make them a very popular storage solution and have made them become very popular for mobile offices or temporary housing too. Storage companies can offer you many different choices across a range of price points to meet your specific needs.
