Buying Dry Containers

In addition to shipping goods, steel dry containers are frequently used for temporary or semi-permanent storage space on your own property or at an outside location. They are suitable for storing tools, equipment, inventory and personal belongings. They are strong, durable and secure with a simple, but effective locking mechanism. Many containers are used as portable offices, on construction sites and for expansion of existing facilities. Containers are very popular for use in the storage rental business. For container uses in temporary or semi-permanent storage, portable offices, and similar needs, SeaCube can work with you to arrange the purchase of steel dry containers that will meet your financial and operational objectives.

SeaCube sells new and used containers to wholesalers and direct to retailers. Contact us with your needs and we will be happy to work with you!

Selection Guide for Steel Dry Containers

Steel Dry Containers come in three standard sizes to maximize their international transportation interoperability. Fortunately, users find these sizes very effective not only for shipping, but for storage uses as well. Choosing the right container size depends primarily on the volume of material to be held, your available space, and on the available, or desired, ceiling height.
