Used Shipping Containers For Sale

If you are in search of used shipping containers for sale, then there are a couple of options for purchasing them online.

This way you have the benefit of being able to shop around, but you can also try to arrange to get your shipping container delivered to you.

The two easiest ways are to buy:

  • from a specialised container company
  • at an auction website

Buying From Container Companies

There are container companies who will sell containers both new and used. You will probably be paying retail prices, but dealing with experts does have its benefits.

These companies deal with containers every day and can assist you with delivery, truck sizes, any other questions or assistance you may need.

Criteria you will need to consider when you buy used shipping containers.

Buying from Auction Sites

Auction websites like EBay and Gumtree (in Australia) will have a range of shipping containers for sale, including already refurbished and fitted out containers and parts, in a range of conditions.

Keep in mind that you will probably need to organise your own pick up from wherever the container is located - whether at a port or in a suburban or country location.
