Wide Range of Quality Containers for Shipping Cargo

Need to export goods overseas or ship them across the country? We have a range of new and used 20 foot and 40 foot shipping containers (see below) that you can choose from to ensure your goods are shipped safely and efficiently. These include standard, high cube, side loading, insulated, refrigerated, flat rack and open top containers. Port Containers can also supply you with the CSC certificate required for interstate rail or sea shipping if required.

The Very Best Prices

Right now there are around 17 million shipping containers transporting goods and cargo all over the world. And whilst a lot of containers are used many times over for shipping goods, others are used just once before they’re on-sold. In fact it is often cheaper for a company to buy a new shipping container, ship the goods and then sell the container, rather than arrange to bring it back or reuse it. As a result, we have thousands of used and near-new shipping containers available for sale at remarkably competitive prices. At Port Containers we buy directly from the source. So you always get the best price.

Make Sure You Buy Your Container from a Quality Provider

It is important to make sure you buy from a legitimate container company such as Port Containers. Shipping containers are used to transport all sorts of goods, including chemicals and organic goods that can leave unpleasant or even dangerous odors that could ruin items you decided to store or ship in it. So if you’re buying a second hand container you can’t inspect or return, you could be left with a huge problem. At Port Containers, we make sure all our containers are of the highest quality.

20 Foot and 40 Foot General Purpose Shipping Containers

These are the most common general purpose cargo containers. Available in 20 foot and 40 foot sizes, made from Corten steel, they are wind-proof, waterproof, rodent-proof and incredibly tough. They have to be! They’ve been built to travel around the world on the decks of ships in all sorts of weather and climates, stacked up to seven containers high.

20 Foot and 40 Foot High Cube Shipping Container for sale

High cube containers are almost exactly the same as general purpose containers, but they have an extra foot in height. This gives you extra space for your goods and allows taller or bulkier goods to be shipped or stored.

20 Foot and 40 Foot Side Opening Shipping Containers

Side opening shipping containers are a specialized container designed for easier access when loading and unloading. Along with the standard double doors at the end, the side of a side opening shipping container has been modified to become two extra doors. This makes loading and unloading a shipping container fast and efficient, especially if the good are being loaded by forklift.

20 Foot and 40 Foot Open Top Shipping Containers

Open top shipping containers are designed for goods that are most efficiently loaded from the top via a crane or other methods of top loading. Once loaded, the container is covered and secured by a heavy-duty tarpaulin. And once the tarp has been lashed into place, the shipping container is as secure and weather-proof as a normal shipping container – and it can also be stacked on top of (or underneath) other shipping containers if being sent by sea.

20 Foot and 40 Foot Flat Rack Shipping Containers

Flat rack shipping containers are used for bulky or oversized goods (like machinery) that won’t fit into an ordinary shipping container. Flat rack containers don’t have a roof, and some come with ends that can collapse if required. Others have no ends at all. Like all ISO shipping containers, a flat rack container has been designed for easy mobility and can be transported from truck to port to ship to port to rail to warehouse easily and efficiently.

20 Foot and 40 Foot Refrigerated Containers

Refrigerated shipping containers, also known as reefers, are required for when you need to ship perishable goods like meat, seafood, dairy or other foodstuffs at a controlled temperature.

20 Foot and 40 Foot Insulated containers

Insulated containers are refrigerated containers that have been decommissioned. Their insulated features are perfect for shipping products that don’t necessarily need to be kept refrigerated, but do need a steady temperature. This container is great for things like flowers, fruit, vegetables, medicines and chemicals.
